Vibration Cafe, VC-4, HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
About V-CAFE HIFU
HIFU uses sound energy - proven and tested ultrasound - which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. HIFU ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
■ Builds New Collagen
The HIFU procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
■ No Toxins or Needles,The Non-invasive Lift
HIFU technology is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
■ No Downtime. Natural Results
It’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. The real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin.
■ Safe Ultrasound. No Surgery
HIFU relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and HIFU technology has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in thousands treatments worldwide.
What results can I expect to see?
HIFU Body treatment destroys fat cells in the area treated being treated thus reducing the visible size of the targeted area. Some results may be seen in around 1-2 weeks after treatment, however, significant results are usually seen after 4 to 6 weeks as the ablated contents of the fat cells are gradually flushed away via the normal blood circulation and lymphatic systems. Further the process of collagen and elastin synthesis, improving skin elasticity, tone and texture, continues for up to 3 months – on this basis it is recommended that follow up treatments, if required, are performed at least 3 months after the initial treatment. Like HIFU facial uplift, HIFU Body Sculpting is very effective for lifting and tightening the skin.
How long do the results of HIFU last?
HIFU results are permanent and will continue to improve gradually for up to 3 months following the treatment. As with any age defying treatment your skin will naturally continue to age but HIFU can give you fresher, younger looking skin for approximately 12 to 24 months after your treatment.
People who have open lesions or wounds, cystic acne, existing keloid scarring, mechanical or dermal implants, implanted electrical devices or metal implants in the face or treated area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, should not proceed with HIFU.
How safe is HIFU?
HIFU uses the safe, time-tested ultrasound, which has been effective in clinical studies and over 350,000 patient treatments worldwide. Ultrasound has been used safely in the medical field for over 50 years. HIFU is one of the few treatments safe for all skin types, as it uses ultrasound and bypasses the upper layers of skin where the pigment cells are located.
Are there any side effects from HIFU?
HIFU may cause a slight redness to the skin, but this usually disappears within a matter of hours after the treatment. Some people may also suffer from a slight swelling, bruising, tenderness, numbness or tingling sensation. These symptoms are usually mild and only last temporarily.As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects.
How painful is HIFU?
HIFU may cause some discomfort. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
After Your Treatment
There is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.
