About the Treatment

HIFU is a cutting-edge ultrasound treatment that utilizes high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful and revitalized appearance. By delivering HIFU energy deep down to the SMAS layer (which is typically deeper than lasers can reach), the treatment stimulates collagen production and causes the skin to contract, resulting in immediate lifting and continued skin tightening over the next few months. This process softens wrinkles, and promotes the appearance of tighter, smoother, and more lifted skin.

What is it?

Vzet is an advanced ultrasound treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to lift and tighten the skin. The Vzet ultrasound treatment will soften wrinkles and create the appearance of tighter, smoother, more lifted skin.

Who is a good candidate? Who is NOT a good candidate?

This treatment is designed for patients who want to achieve a firm, toned look with minimal downtime. HIFU isn't recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.

How is the treatment done?

The duration of each treatment typically ranges from 20-45 minutes, depending on the treatment area. If you desire additional lifting and tightening in your treatment area, you may opt for more frequent treatments.

How Does The HIFU Technology Help To Lift And Tighten The Skin?

The HIFU energy is delivered deep (deeper than lasers in general) down to the SMAS layer (about 3.5mm deep) of the skin. The 65˚C of thermal energy that is applied to the SMAS layer makes the skin contract and stimulate collagen production. You’ll notice immediate lifting and continued skin tightening over the next 3-6 months as more collagen is produced. Overtime, you’ll notice improvement in wrinkles and a lifted and slimmer jowl line for a more youthful appearance.

How long does it take to see results?

With HIFU facelift treatments, you’ll see visible skin tightening after just one session. Results may vary depending on age, skin type and condition, as well as individual body chemistry.

Why do the procedure/benefits?

Unlike surgical facelifts, laser treatments and radio frequency, HIFU is the only non-invasive procedure that specifically targets the deep foundation below the skin, without cutting or disrupting the skin surface for your body’s own collagen production.

How long is recovery? (Bruising, swelling, etc.)

When a session is over, there is also no recovery time, which means that people can get on with their daily activities after receiving HIFU treatment.

How often do you have to follow up/maintenance?

To achieve optimal results, we recommend an initial series of three Vzet treatments, spaced approximately two weeks apart, with additional maintenance treatments every six months to a year.
