Antiaging and Skin Tightening with Dual-Hi

Minimize the signs of ageing with Dual Hi – An advanced aesthetic technology that significantly tightens and lifts several areas of the face and body

The Dual-Hi is a High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment (commonly known as HIFU). Entirely non-invasive, Dual-Hi uses energy waves to target specific areas and can target various depths of the body’s tissue for skin tightening, skin lifting, fat cell reduction and body contouring.

You may have heard of HIFU treatments before, however the Dual-Hi has double the technology and therefore is able to deliver faster and better results than any other HIFU treatment currently on the market.  DUAL-HI is an excellent option compared to a surgical facelift as it is quick, very tolerable and has no downtime.

This treatment is the only non-invasive treatment that is able to reach as deep as the SMAS layer of the skin (the superficial musculoaponeurotic system), while still focusing on specific target locations. Targeting the SMAS tissue is required for the most effective and long-term skin tightening. The SMAS layer of the skin is a sheet of tissue that is made up of collagen, elastin fibres, and fat cells – so this treatment enables you to boost new collagen production and collagen regeneration right at the source. The SMAS is the layer a surgeon would typically stretch as part of an invasive surgical face-lifting procedure.

How does the Dual-Hi treatment actually work?

The Dual Hi uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly.

Once the cells in the targeted area reach a certain temperature, they experience something called ‘cellular damage’. While this may seem counterintuitive, the damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen.

The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent issue.

 

Dual-Hi Vs Other HIFU Treatments

Most HI-FU Treatments have one transducer (energy comes out of one point on the applicator), however the Dual-Hi, true to it’s name, has dual transducers that work simultaneously, halving the treatment time, providing better results, and reducing pain with less treatment time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dual-Hi and HiFU treatments may not be appropriate for everyone. In general, the procedure works best on people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin laxity. People with photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatment before seeing results.

You cannot have this treatment/we do not recommend this treatment if you;

  • Have any mechanical/metal implants
  • Are under the age of 18
  • Have been diagnosed with HCVD
  • Wear a pacemaker
  • Have dermal fillers on the treatment area (face)

We will discuss your suitability in your consultation.

You may experience slight discomfort during the Dual-Hi procedure. Some people describe HIFU treatments as feeling like ‘tiny electric pulses’ or a ‘light prickly sensation’. As the Dual-Hi is quicker than most Hi-FU treatments, you will experience less pain as the treatment is over quicker.

If you are worried about pain, you may wish to take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen, prior to treatment, however none of our patients have reported feeling uncomfortable enough to do so.

Dual-Hi is very safe if performed by a trained and qualified professional.

Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which will gradually reside over the next few hours. A light tingling sensation of the treated area may persist for a few weeks. Rarely, you may experience temporary numbness or bruising, but these side effects usually go away after a few days.

Depending on the area you are having treated, your appointment will last from 30-90 minutes. You will be given more information in your consultation.

Most people will see results immediately after their treatment. However, as the treatment is collagen-stimulating, you will continue to see the results develop until 3 months post-procedure.

It is recommended that patients have 1 to 3 treatments to achieve their best results. This is typically every 4 to 6 weeks, with top-up sessions being performed as required (usually once or twice a year).

The results are long-lasting, and although everyone is different, you can expect results to last 1 to 2 years (dependent on your lifestyle and maintenance). We recommend the treatment once every 1-2 years to maintain the results.

Invasive? Recovery Time Risks Efficacy Long-term effects
Dual-Hi Non-Surgical Facelift No need for incisions Nil Mild redness and swelling The improvements in skin may require a 3-month follow-up visit. There is a need for successive procedures as the natural aging process takes a toll.
Surgical Face Lift Requires incisions 2–4 weeks Pain

Bleeding
Infections
Blood clots
Hair loss where the incision is made

A lot of people are happy with the results over the long-term. The result from this procedure is long-lasting. Improvements are said to last up to a decade after the procedure.
