A non-surgical aesthetic treatment at Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic acts like a facelift to give an intense skin-tightening eﬀect with minimal discomfort.
When the skin ages, the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), a layer of connective tissue in the face, starts to weaken and get lax. Eventually, this results in the loosening of the skin and the development of wrinkles.
Quick fixes such as botox injections and dermal fillers can plump the face in a jiﬀy, but for those who prefer something non-invasive, there’s the HIFU AgeTite treatment (from $480 for a double chin treatment) at Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic. Promising an immediate lifting eﬀect that is reportedly on a par with that of a facelift, this treatment supposedly shrinks the SMAS layer to give you tauter skin and a slimmer, more defined V-shape face.
SAFE, NON-INVASIVE AND EFFECTIVE
HIFU AgeTite utilises high-intensity, focused ultrasound energy to help your skin fight the ravages of time. A handheld device delivers low levels of ultrasound energy into the deeper layers of the skin to reportedly trigger the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the production and reconstruction of collagen and elastin fibres for firmer, suppler skin.
While you may experience some warmth and a tingling sensation during the treatment, as well as some stiﬀness in the face for up to 48 hours after, HIFU AgeTite is purportedly considerably less painful than other ultrasound treatments.
Its eﬀects are said to be visible immediately after, with the mid-face, jowls and jawline becoming more defined, and droopy eyelids, dark eye circles and fat pockets under the eyes becoming less apparent. Firming and tightening eﬀects are said to be most evident two months post-treatment, and results can reportedly last four to six months .
