Aging is inevitable.
Fine lines, deep wrinkles, sagging skin, loss of volume, and enlarged pores are the natural and unavoidable consequences of growing old. There is no stopping on the hands of time, this is aging and this is exactly what it does to our skin. Aging attacks our face first, and most of the time it leaves us looking older than we really are. Wrinkles and fine lines will begin to form. Our eyes appear hollow and almost sink into sockets with drooping skin around the eyes. Our jawline is not as sharp and well-defined as it used to be.
Aging is a natural process that everyone will inevitably go through and it cannot be completely prevented, but fortunately we can slow it down and postpone this natural occurring process of wrinkling and sagging. And now there is a secret we want you to know, it is about building a foundation from the inside-out with our latest skin tightening treatment - HIFU Ultraformer III - the first clinic having this newest machine in Malaysia!
The latest and most advanced device using ultrasound technology for face lifting and wrinkle reduction, HIFU is now available with Ultraformer III. HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, works through non-invasive targeting of different layers of the skin through micro-focused high-intensity ultrasound waves to penetrate skin without damaging the epidermis while protecting the top-most epidermis layer.
This focused energy reaches the SMAS, the layer involved in face-lifting, and causes immediate contraction and triggers cell renewal which results in a more natural tightening and smoothing effect for our face. It helps to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, increasing the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone the skin from within. After a single procedure to tighten and firm the skin, an immediate lift can be noticeable.
HIFU Ultraformer III can also be used to eliminate stubborn fat cells and tighten loose skin on body areas such as abdomen, thighs and upper arms by using the innovative body cartridges.
This innovative technology maximize the customer’s satisfaction and reduce treatment time by making effective clinical results, less pain during the treatment and low rate of observation of adverse effects. It activates the wound healing process of human immune system and effectively produces new collagen.
