What if there were a non-surgical way to reduce wrinkles, tone skin and restore a youthful lift and vibrancy to your complexion? Thanks to breakthroughs in medical technology, that’s exactly what is happening. In fact, it is now possible to achieve the skin-sculpting effects of a face lift or neck lift without the need to make a single incision.
High Profile Technologies Ltd specialises in developing cosmetic equipment that can be used in next-generation cosmetic procedures with advancements in 'pain free laser hair removal' using it's LiteFLO technology, 'effective fat freezing treatments' with the isoLipo and the latest in 'laser tattoo removal' equipment with the inkaway.
It goes without saying that we’re beyond enthusiastic about the ramifications of this breakthrough on cosmetic treatments. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce our latest development – soniXsmooth
Now you can enjoy the skin-tightening benefits of cosmetic surgery without the need to make a single incision. Breakthroughs in medical technology have given us the ability to perform a high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), which until now has only had specific medical applications. But as cosmetic-equipment specialists have recently discovered, HIFU can also be used to counteract the effects of gravity and time on the skin.
What is the science behind soniXsmooth HIFU therapy?
Hifu (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
HIFU technology was originally developed for medical purposes, and for that reason it has received plenty of research funding and testing.
The technology focuses ultrasound waves through an acoustic lens, much the way that sunlight can be focused into a single point through a magnifying glass.
This focused wave passes without effect through tissue (such as skin) until it reaches that converging point of focus. At that point, it produces thermal or even mechanical effects. In other words, it allows surgeons to operate on internal tissues without having to cut through the skin to reach them.
This in turn allows therapists to use the soniXsmooth technology to perform complete non-invasive skin tightening treatments also known as non-surgical facelifts.
What were the original applications of HIFU?
HIFU was developed to be a minimally invasive or non-invasive means of treating a range of cancers – including kidney, liver, breast and pancreatic cancers, to name a few.
Given the effectiveness of HIFU in a medical context, it has caught the attention of other specialists.
This is how HIFU therapy became a bold cross-over treatment, with applications in cosmetic procedures. As such, regulatory bodies have also cleared it for everything from non-invasive liposuction to eyebrow lifts.
What's soniXsmooth facelifting?
Non-surgical facelifting brought into the 21st century with soniXsmooth.
Whilst there are fundamental differences between soniXsmooth and a traditional facelift, the outcome of both procedures features many similarities. HIFU focuses ultrasound energy deep within the layers of the skin, the depth is dependant on which cartridge you select.
This creates heat in the targeted area and instigates a process known as ‘neo-collagenesis’, which in turn prompts the body to produce its own fresh supply of collagen. In such a way, it’s possible to jumpstart a natural body process that creates a noticeable lift in the skin.
The soniXsmooth facelift is not aided with the need for fillers or creams.
How is soniXsmooth different from laser treatment?
To begin with, the fundamental method of delivery is markedly different. Laser-based skin treatment focuses light, whilst soniXsmooth focuses acoustic sound waves.
The penetrating potential of HIFU therapy makes this a uniquely effective way of addressing subcutaneous layers without having to cut through the skin.
How much time is involved for a typical soniXsmooth treatment?
A great deal of customisation and personalisation goes into designing a soniXsmooth facelifting treatment plan. With that in mind, the amount of time required for one procedure depends to a great extent upon the area that is being treated, as well as upon the scope of the procedure.
It’s not uncommon for a soniXsmooth neck session to take an hour or longer. A full non-surgical face lift is usually a bit faster than this. But again, it depends upon the patient and scope of the treatment plan.
How long does it take for soniXsmooth treatment to work?
Patients often report noticing results (and receiving compliments from friends and family) as soon as the therapy concludes.
However, it’s worth noting that the real benefit of soniXsmooth is its ability to stimulate collagen production within the body. This process begins on the first day and continues over the course of two or three months. Of course, this also depends upon the individual’s biological makeup. Regardless, the generation of new collagen beneath the skin will, over time, produce results that are visible from the outside.
How safe is soniXsmooth?
Extremely safe. Surgeons and specialists have been using ultrasound energy for decades to treat various medical conditions.
HIFU is a well-understood procedure that harnesses and focuses this energy with highly sought-after results.
What does the procedure feel like?
In the course of soniXsmooth ultrasound therapy, highly focused, acoustic energy is delivered at precise depths within the skin tissue. This creates a noticeable sensation that may, in some cases, be uncomfortable but is rarely described as ‘painful’. Sensations of warmth and heat are more likely. In any event, sensations beneath the skin are a sign that the treatment is working.
An Exciting New Horizon for Cosmetic Therapy
It goes without saying that practitioners and patients, alike, are excited about the prospects of ultra sound therapy. Now, it’s possible to conduct a non-invasive face lift, or to eliminate signs of ageing in the neck and brow. Indeed, these are exciting times in the realm of cosmetic therapy, and High Profile Technologies is leading the way with soniXsmooth HIFU beauty machine.
