Vancouver, Canada, July 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Reviva Laser Skin Clinic, a leading provider of medical beauty treatments, has introduced a new, upgraded high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology to Greater Vancouver. HIFU is increasingly popular worldwide for non-surgical, non-laser face lifts and lifting of the chin and neck through systems such as Ulthera and Doublo. Non-invasive ultrasound energy tightens the skin immediately while stimulating collagen production for long-term rejuvenation.
Under the direction of Dr. Henry Ngai, MD (University of British Columbia), the clinic has now started to treat patients with the second-generation HIFU system. The improved technology is twice as powerful and precise as the industry standard but consumes less energy, resulting in better results and cost effectiveness for patients.
FDA-approved to lift the neck on the face, chin, and neck, Ulthera (Ultherapy) is one of the best-known examples in South Korea, Japan, the United States, and parts of Europe. This first-generation HIFU system was released in 2012. That year, Doublo received the Korean World-Class Product Award from the Ministry of Knowledge Economy in South Korea.
“Compared to other skin rejuvenation devices and technologies, the Doublo can achieve good aesthetic outcomes while limiting unwanted side effects,” said Jie Hoon Kim, MD, Suwon, South Korea. “The large majority of [patients] are... very satisfied with the results and ask for repeat treatments. Treatments are relatively comfortable and the rejuvenation effects are very noticeable."
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) systems generate non-invasive energy. An experienced professional directs the ultrasound energy beneath the surface layer of sagging and/or wrinkled skin, forcing collagen fibres in the skin to contract while prompting cells to restructure and produce more collagen for an all-natural facelift. Treatments typically take 60 to 90 minutes, with immediately noticeable improvement and no downtime. Full results become visible after up to six months.
