Firming and lifting (HIFU) by Ultraformer

We all want that timeless, youthful look. But as we age, our skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin. This causes it to lose its tightness and results in sagging skin on the face, neck and body.

HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) is an advanced firming ultrasound treatment offering impressive tightening and lifting results – without the need for any invasive surgery or prolonged recovery time. This technology is a fast, easy way to get the results you want, which is why it’s often called “the lunchtime facelift.” As one of Dubai’s top aesthetic and dermatology clinics, Omnicare offers world-class HIFU treatments.

How does HIFU work?

HIFU firming and lifting treatments utilize 3D SkinLift by Ultraformer. This is a non-invasive technology that uses a high-intensity, focused ultrasound to create a coagulating effect in the lower layers of the skin. The heat from the micro-focused ultrasound contracts the network of collagen fibres. The result is an immediate tightening, as well as stimulating the regeneration of collagen in the weeks following your treatment. This provides a long-term tightening effect, ensuring that your results will last.

The 3D SkinLift by Ultraformer treatment can take up to one hour, depending on the areas you want to treat. All treatments are tailored to your individual needs. Results may vary depending on the condition of your skin and your skin type, so we recommend a consultation to discuss your treatment options.
