At Eternal Beauty Skin Care Clinic in North York, ON, Canada, we offer unique treatments that can improve body composition and the health and appearance of the skin by utilizing the power of high-intensity focused ultrasound energy. HIFU devices are energy-based and use natural methods to contour the body, tighten the skin, rejuvenate the complexion, and eliminate common skin imperfections and signs of aging through quick, non-invasive, and virtually painless treatments.
What Are High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Treatments?
High-intensity focused ultrasound treatments use ultrasound energy to heat the dermal layers of the skin to accomplish specific goals. HIFU energy increases the skin temperature and forces the body to respond differently based on the treatment area and the device used.
We offer two specific treatment types that use this form of energy, and they can help patients improve their body composition and address some specific skin imperfections, including the most common signs of aging.
We offer SculpSure® for body contouring and photofacials and skin rejuvenating treatments from InMode that can initiate a skin transformation that results in a tighter, brighter, and more even complexion. Whether you’re interested in targeting stubborn fat, improving your complexion, or both, we can design a treatment plan that meets your needs and helps you feel more confident in your appearance.
What Are the Benefits of HIFU Treatments?
When you undergo an HIFU treatment, you won’t have to worry about pain, discomfort, or downtime. Instead, you can feel confident that you’re undergoing a natural treatment that uses advanced technology and energy-based methods to reach your cosmetic or aging-related goals. Other treatment benefits include the following:
- Treatments are quick
- Treatments are non-surgical
- We can customize a treatment plan for each patient’s specific goals
- Body contouring treatment results are permanent
- Skin rejuvenation treatment results are visible and long-lasting
Stubborn fat is a common concern of men and women with different body types and body compositions. Stubborn fat is called stubborn for a reason; it’s difficult to eliminate on your own, even when you eat a healthy diet and routinely exercise. SculpSure can do what the healthiest diet and an active lifestyle cannot. It uses HIFU energy to target stubborn fat cells beneath the skin’s surface, heating them so they can no longer survive.
As a result, the body will respond and flush those fat cells out using the lymphatic system to do so. As it does, you’ll notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of your treatment area and significantly decreased fat volume.
How Does It Work?
During a SculpSure treatment, we’ll use the device and its laser HIFU energy to heat areas with stubborn fat. The fat cells won’t be able to withstand the temperature increase and will be destroyed. You won’t see immediate results, but you will leave your appointment one step closer to reaching your body goals.
What Happens During a Treatment?
This entire treatment process is comfortable and pain-free. All you’ll have to do is lie back and relax. You’ll remain comfortable throughout the treatment since the device has cooling technology that keeps the skin at a comfortable temperature.
During your treatment, we’ll apply the applicator to your treatment area, either the abdomen, love handles, back, thighs, or even the area beneath the chin. Then, the heat energy will destroy the structural integrity of the fat cells, and the body will eliminate them in the next three months.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
After a 25-minute treatment, you can expect up to a 24 percent decrease in the total fat cells in your treatment area. It typically takes several weeks to see the best results, as your body will need to respond to the treatment by flushing those broken-down fat cells out of your system, but you will see noticeable results within the first 12 weeks of your treatment.
You can track your progress by taking measurements or progress pictures every week. Results are permanent, and once the fat cells are gone, they can’t come back.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You’ll see results after undergoing just one treatment, but most patients achieve the best results after undergoing several. To determine the best treatment plan, we’ll schedule a pre-treatment consultation to evaluate your problem areas, and then we can get a better idea of what you’re trying to accomplish so we can custom-tailor your treatment plan accordingly.
InMode PhotoFacials and Skin Rejuvenating Treatments
We can also use high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to deliver a skin-rejuvenating treatment. We offer photo facials using devices from InMode that can deliver complete skin rejuvenation. These treatments can address the most common concerns that affect the skin and detract from its natural beauty, including:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Dull skin
- Aging skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Skin imperfections
How Do They Work?
Our skin rejuvenating treatments use HIFU energy to heat the dermal layers of the skin to increase natural collagen and elastin production. As the body increases production of these two essential proteins, you’ll see younger and healthier-looking skin.
Collagen is responsible for skin fullness, while elastin is responsible for skin texture and tightness. By using this natural energy-based device to force the body to create more of its own anti-aging proteins, we can treat lines, wrinkles, facial folds, and other skin imperfections that detract from the appearance and each patient’s confidence.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime after a skin rejuvenation treatment. You can resume all of your normal daily activities. Still, we do recommend that patients temporarily discontinue the use of harsh anti-aging products to let their skin heal and recover after treatment.
When you come in for your initial consultation, we can give you more details about the treatment and also help you take steps to prepare your skin. We’ll also give you details about what you should do post-treatment to ensure the best possible results.
