High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is the latest clinically proven non-surgical cosmetic technology which delivers heat energy to the skin and subcutaneous tissue. This procedure helps to tighten & define the skin around the face and neck areas and aids in stimulating and renewing the skin’s collagen, restoring the skin’s elasticity, improving the skin’s texture, and reducing sagging, leaving your skin feeling smooth and looking younger.
HIFU is growing in popularity as dramatic results can be achieved in as little as one or two sessions. It penetrates at deeper depths and higher temperatures than Radio Frequency, treating beyond the dermis, where skin structure starts to weaken. Leaving the skin Restored & Rejuvenated.
HIFU works to rejuvenate the skin (and deliver similar results) as a traditional facelift – but without the surgery, pain, or downtime.
ULCHE HIFU by Bison Medical is TGA approved and a medical device that can treat a precise area with pinpoint accuracy by breaking down collagen and rebuilding new collagen without harming the surrounding area.
The electrical energy flow inside ULCHE is transmitted to the transducer in the cartridge and converted to ultrasonic energy. Once it reaches the SMAS layer, which is between the muscle layer and the subcutaneous fat layer, its thermal energy promotes collagen and cause the SMAS to coagulate. Through this process we can lift and tighten the skin. Ulche HIFU uses ultra waves instead of micro waves, present in most HIFU devices on the market, meaning its waves are shorter and smaller. Making it not as painful as devices with longer waves.
As we age, our skin loses collagen, which leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. But, with the help of HIFU treatments, we can stimulate collagen production and achieve lifted, toned, and youthful-looking skin.
This device uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to target specific areas of the skin. The heat from the ultrasound energy helps stimulate collagen production, leading to lifting and tightening of the skin. Additionally, the heat can also help to improve the appearance of wrinkles.
ULCHE consists of 4 cartridges. Cartridges are chosen depending on frequency(Hz) and penetration depth. 1.5mm, 3.0mm & 4.5mm for face and 6.0mm for body.
ULCHE 6mm cartridge is filled with fiber that smoothens area like solid cellu-lite and uneven skin after liposuction operations. It is effective on thin skin such as forearms and thighs.
Most clients only need 1 treatment, but some may need
