NON SURGICAL FACE LIFT
What is HIFU?
HIFU technology is not like lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies. It is non-surgical. The HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) beams through the surface of the skin to deliver precise and fractional ultrasound energy at the right depths (i.e. 3.0mm/4.5mm) to the SMAS layer without damage or disrupting the epidermal tissue of the skin. This energy stimulates both muscle firming and new collagen production, with no disruption to the outer skin surface (no scarring). It is especially suitable for treating sagging skin with reasonable thickness as well.
HIFU Treatment (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a breakthrough, non-invasive, non-surgical, no downtime, in-office procedure for lifting and tightening sagging skin of the brows, cheeks, lower face (jowls), jawline and neck. Ultrasound technology is focused below the skin surface to firm and lift droopy tissues.
It works deep below the surface to stimulate the growth of collagen "without harming the outer layer of skin". This results in long-lasting firming, tightening and lifting of the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance after just one treatment. While HIFU is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery. There are also younger people who are looking to prolong the effects of plastic surgery.
How long do the results of HIFU last?
HIFU results are permanent and will continue improving gradually for up to three months following the treatment. You will not be frozen in time. After three months, as with any age defying treatment, your skin will naturally continue to age but HIFU can give you fresher, younger looking skin for approximately 18 to 24 months after your treatment. Follow up treatments are recommended to continue longer lasting results.
Radio Frequancy is also very effective at protecting and maintaining your HIFU results. RF treatment can be done one month after the HIFU treatment.
People who have open lesions or wounds, cystic acne, existing keloid scarring, mechanical or dermal implants, implanted electrical devices or metal implants in the face or treated area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, should not proceed with HIFU.
How safe is HIFU?
HIFU uses the safe, time-tested ultrasound, which has been effective in clinical studies and over 350,000 patient treatments worldwide. Ultrasound has been used safely in the medical field for over 50 years. HIFU is one of the few treatments safe for all skin types, as it uses ultrasound and bypasses the upper layers of skin where the pigment cells are located.
Are there any side effects from HIFU?
HIFU may cause a slight redness to the skin, but this usually disappears within a matter of hours after the treatment. Face can feel like it has had a workout for several weeks afterwards. Makeup application after the treatment can be made to mask any mild redness that may have occurred. Some people may also suffer from a slight swelling, tenderness, numbness or tingling sensation. These symptoms are usually mild and only last temporarily.
How painful is HIFU?
HIFU may cause some discomfort. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
After Your Treatment
There is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects.

Plasma therapy is the aesthetic industry's most advanced non-surgical, skin lifting and tightening treatment. It is used with great results for wrinkle smoothing, eyelid tightening, eyelid hood reduction, smoker’s lines, marionette lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, ear lobe tightening and more, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
This innovative technology utilises plasma - formed through ionisation of atmospheric gasses - to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres. This technology does not use scalpel or laser to remove excess skin, thereby avoiding all risks inherent to the traditional intervention.
The treatment is performed through miniature spots made with a pen type device at a certain distance one from the other to stimulate instant contraction and tightening of skin fibres.
Results can be seen immediately but continue to improve over a 6-8 week period and can last up to around 2-5 years, subjected to the number of treatments required, your life style and how you personally age. This is done all without the use for needles, scalpels, anaesthetic or costly surgery.
The treatment consists of many plasma dots spaced closely together and most areas of the face and body can be treated. The procedure normally takes up to 90 minutes to perform. Results are seen instantly although the best appearance is seen after 6-8 weeks. The treatment is performed without causing bleeding and more importantly without causing any damage to the surrounding tissue.
1 - 3 treatments at 8 weekly intervals are recommended to give the results similar to a surgical procedure. Results can be cumulative and in some instances 2 or 3 treatments may be required to deliver optimal results.
What is Plasma?
Plasma was discovered by Sir William Crookes in 1879 an English physicist. It is a form of matter. It is also known as the 4th state, in addition to liquid, gas and solids.
Plasma pens convert electrical energy into an electrostatic energy which is then transmitted to the probe. At about 1mm from the skin, oxygen and nitrogen are mixed and the electrostatic energy produces an arc of plasma which is discharged on the surface of the skin (epidermis). This principle involves the ionisation of gases from the air to create a micro electrical discharge causing sublimation (directly turns a solid substance into a gas). The excess skin is sublimated.
This creates an immediate contraction of the skin tissue on the surface and also creates thermal disruption in the dermis. The probe never touches the skin. By targeting fibroblasts in the dermis, we stimulate collagen and elastin. This controlled trauma creates an inflammatory response. The arc creates tiny carbon crusts which look like freckles and fall off around days 4-7 leaving tightened, fresh and rejuvenated skin.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect afterwards?
PlasmaLift treatments are very safe. On rare occasions, there have been reports of hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to the local anaesthetic, wound healing problems, skin infections, scarring, slight swelling, redness, tingling, the occurrence of herpes simplex (cold sore) and skin depigmentation (whitening).
Straight after the procedure, the area treated will be red and have mild swelling. This can last for 1-3 days. The small carbon dots will dry, becoming small brown crusts. These small crusts need to heal naturally, they will start to fall off on their own. Under any circumstances they must not be picked or scratched off. This process may take from 5-14 days. By day 3 you may apply makeup that will be explained to you on the day of your procedure.
Once the crusts have fallen off it is imperative that you use the recommended aftercare and use an SPF 50 sunscreen.
Absolutely no sun on the area without protection for 3 months.
How does it work?
The PlasmaLift machine conductor tip creates a tiny plasma flash from the tip (similar to a tiny lightning bolt). The tip does not touch the skin. The plasma lightning jumps from the tip to the skin and evaporates, leaving very small superficial brown carbon spots that look like a freckles.
There is no heat to the surrounding skin. These small spots draw the skin together in their direct environment and shrink the excess skin. We follow a specific pattern to set the points to look like a grid (a reduction grid).
This is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that shrinks excess skin, bags and wrinkles!
This treatment protocol is also used for other areas of the face/body.
How long does the treatment take?
We allow 90 minutes including time for the anaesthetic to work and consent forms to be completed. You will be informed of where to purchase anaesthetic cream that can be administered during your treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is often enough depending on skin type, severity of wrinkles and client’s expectation. For some a 2nd or even 3rd treatment may be required to achieve the desired outcome, follow up treatments can be carried out after 8-12 weeks.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes most definitely. It is state-of-the-art technology, our machine is made in Germany and of the highest quality, It is certified by European CE. This means it meets high safety, health and environmental protection requirements.
How long will results last?
Typically around 2-5 years, but is subject to the number of treatments you may require, your lifestyle and how you personally age. You will continue to age and your skin will continue to relax as part of the normal ageing process, and eventually you may see problems such as wrinkles and saggy skin re-appear However the PlasmaLift treatment can simply be repeated again.
When will I see the results?
Results can usually be seen immediately, full results should be visible after 2-4 weeks however the treated area will continue to improve for 2-3 months. Results are expected to last 2-3 years, the treatment can be repeated.

After Care Information:
Immediately after the treatment, small, usually non-bleeding scabs, which can be covered with make-up after 1 to 2 days, can be seen, depending on the treatment.
In the first 1 to 3 days after the treatment, swelling of different severity may occur. After 5 to 7 days, the small brown dots resulting from treatment and wound healing have disappeared. After 3-4 week light redness is no longer visible.
In extreme cases (especially if a client failed to follow the after- care advice), the swelling can last several days and initially interfere with vision.
On rare occasions, there have been reports of hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to the local anaesthetic, wound healing problems, skin infections, scarring, slight swelling, redness, tingling, the occurrence of herpes simplex (cold sore) and skin depigmentation (whitening).
Please inform your technician immediately if there are signs of infection such as excessive redness, pus, blisters or thick, yellow crusts or if any other unexpected side effects occur in the post-treatment period.
Never pick or scratch!
It is important that the resulting scabs/crusts are not removed. (Never scratch, it may result in scarring) Instead, twice daily in the morning and in the evening, gently dab the areas with luke warm pre-boiled water and dab dry with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Do not use Alcohol based cleansers.
- You can use ice packs for the first 48 hours, on the evening of your treatment, 10 mins on 10 mins off. Again, the following morning and evening. Ensure the ice pack is covered with a tissue so the treated area is not getting wet from the condensation.
- It is recommended that you sleep elevated for the first 3 nights, this will help the lymph fluid drain away.
- Do not cover with plasters or occlusive dressings.
- Occasional weeping will settle.
- Any burning sensation will soon reduce.
- Anti-inflammatory/anti-histamine medication can help; ibuprofen can be taken if the area is uncomfortable.
- After the crusts peel off, a new, pink skin emerges. This skin must be protected from direct sunlight with a high UV protection factor (30 or above) for at least 3 months.
- Sports, swimming and saunas are only permitted once all the crusts have fallen off and the wound is completely closed/dry. The after-care is the most important part of the treatment and must be observed.
- For smokers, a considerable deterioration of the blood flow in the wound area can occur, which significantly increases the risk of wound healing problems or a slowed wound healing!
Note that after the crusts have fallen off, a slight redness may remain, It usually takes 2 to 4 weeks until the skin regains its normal color; it can however take 2 to 3 months depending on the skin type and the individual.
Once the scabs/brown dots have fallen off start to apply only the recommended Aftercare cream twice daily as recommended by your technician.
DO NOT APPLY CREAM BEFORE SCABS HAVE FALLEN OFF.

About Skin Needling
The concept of Skin Needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions.
Immediately after an injury to the skin our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis.
The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Micro needling is the process carried out with a Micro needling pen with multiple small needles. These needles penetrate the upper layers of skin to a depth of from 0.25 up to 3 mm (depending on area of the face/body or skin condition).
This process has two major benefits. It effectively stimulates collagen formation at the same time as providing a clear channel for topical serums to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer (epidermis) of skin.
Skin needling creates very microscopic channels, flushing of the skin is the best indicator for the perfect treatment. The inflammatory reaction of the skin is short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last from 12 to 24hours on average, this also depends on your skin’s sensitivity. Your skin will feel a sensation like sunburn. A flushed look can last usually 48 hours and you may experience some flakiness.
Skin Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy which is intended to smooth wrinkles, rejuvenate skin, reduce pore size, reduce stretch marks, soften Hyperpigmentation, tighten skin, improve skin texture and improve depressed acne scarring.
As your aesthetician needles across your skin, it makes pin point punctures into the dermis – most of which are simply temporarily opening your pores. Your body perceives this as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that, in turn, stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
The human body is designed to react to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will just mend as far as it has to keep you in good health – which is very different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering this healing process, you encourage your body to keep repairing until the job is done. Skin needling may be conducted safely on all colours of skin and all types of skin.
You will see results quickly. After 5 days your skin will look plump and hydrated, however collagen will grow from around the 6 week mark.
Skin needling will improve the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. You will notice improvement in the skin texture, evenness and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 weeks. We recommend upto 4 treatments for best results and sometimes more are needed, depending on the result you are wanting to achieve.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Skin Needling (CIT) ?
Skin Needling is a treatment using very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue & to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibres (neo-collagenesis) as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis). The procedures are called Scar Reduction Therapy (SRT) & Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
What is the difference between Skin Needling and other skin rejuvenating techniques?
In contrast to all ablative techniques like Lasers and Fractional Laser treatments, Skin Needling stimulates new tissue formation – it acts constructively and the skin remains intact. The skin does not get damaged (unlike other devices) and therefore will not go into a wound healing response. Skin Needling significantly improves atrophic scars & improves skin texture.
What effects does Skin Needling have on the skin?
Skin Needling improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation. Reduces disfiguring scars & acne scars, stimulates new collagen fibres, improves blood supply and harmonises pigmentation.
How is Skin Needling performed and does it hurt?
The skin is cleaned and afterwards numbed with an appropriate numbing cream so it should not hurt at all. Skin is thoroughly needled in such a way, that each skin part is needled about 15 to 20 times. An even flushing is the best indication for a perfect medical performance.
Can Skin Needling be performed on any skin colour?
Since Skin Needling does not use thermal heat (unlike IPL & Lasers) it is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colours. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
How often can Skin Needling be repeated?
For Collagen Induction Therapy we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 6 to 8 weeks between treatments. For Scar Reduction Therapy an average of 3 to 5 treatments are recommended, with an improvement of 70-80%. Unlike ablative procedures for facial skin only, the Skin Needling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc).
What are the side effects from Skin Needling?
There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 500,000 procedures performed worldwide.
Are there any risk of post-op infections?
Since the tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are very unlikely.
What is the down time after a Skin Needling treatment?
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 24 hours on average. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend healing minerals, peptides and hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with cosmetic grade sun screen. We also recommend the use of mineral makeup to help with the healing.
What should I avoid on my skin?
To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days avoid the use of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (for example – Glycolic Acid), Retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients.
What Should I use on my skin after Skin Needling?
A gentle Cleanser to soothe, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, heal balm to protect, a high-grade Sunscreen to help heal but also to protect.
Does Skin Needling have the same effect as Fractional Laser Therapy?
Yes, but the mechanism of action of a Fractional Laser is totally different. The laser beam sets a burn wound that results in necrosis. After an inflammatory process the necrosis transforms into fibrotic tissue in forms of micro scars. Nerve cells are “melted” by the hot laser beam, therefore the treatment is relatively painful. As the doctor cannot see the previous set scars under the epidermis in a follow-up treatment, it is extreme difficult for them to set an even scar pattern.
This is the reason why more treatments are required than initially anticipated. But overall, as reported in clinical trials and besides costly investment in lasers, both therapies have about the same results for facial treatments.

It offers a revolutionary non-invasive form of treatment for reshaping, tightening, lifting and contouring your face and neck area. It utilises a combination of Monopolar Radiofrequency (RF) and Ultrasound together, to target deeper where collagen is much needed to reverse the signs of aging. This is the only technology of its kind, to enable safe delivery of more energy over a short period of time, which means you can be treated quicker, with no need for anaesthesia, no downtime and best of all very little discomfort if any at all.
I am the only Clinic with this device currently in Victoria, I am excited to bring this new device to the area for my clients.
What is an Alpha Shape Pro Sculpting Facial?
If you are not looking as fresh as you would like or looking a little tired this treatment could be your best kept secret for improving your skin texture and improving, you skin elasticity.
Radio Frequency facials have been used for over a decade in giving exception results, with no down time or pain. The Alpha Shape Pro is the newest and most innovative treatment available in 2019.
Using new technology, giving you exceptional results in fewer treatments. Old Radio Frequency technology used to take 8-12 treatments to get the similar results, with the Alpha-Shape Pro you can achieve outstanding results in as little of 4-6 treatments.
The areas that can be treated is the full face, cheeks, jowls, neck, eyes, mouth area and more.
The treatment produces heat energy from Radio Frequency while using ultrasound waves which deliverers at a much deeper level, to the area responsible for creating collagen which creates a tighter, firmer, fresher and more youthful looking skin.
This is the newest Gold Standard non-surgical face sculpting treatment available in 2019.
Am I suitable for an Alpha Shape Pro Treatment?
These treatments are recommended for people between the ages of 25-70 who are concerned with stubborn areas of fat, cellulite or sagging skin, particularly those areas that show signs of ageing and have not responded to exercise. Patients with relatively good skin elasticity or “spring back” respond more readily to the treatment. Younger patients may see more dramatic responses. Patients with poor skin texture many have more modest results or require more frequent treatments. Anyone seeking skin tightening and shaping but hoping to avoid discomfort of surgery may benefit from this technology.
What does the treatment involve?
The computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a warm sensation like a hot stone massage. During the procedure the radio waves warm the skin to 40-42 degrees Celsius over 4-6 minutes per treated area. The skin responds by immediately tightening existing collagen and will continue by creating new collagen over the next 2-3 months. Individual responses vary, but patients generally see firmer, tighter, more sculptured smoother skin texture develop over this period.
How many treatments do I need?
Typically, 4-6 treatment sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart are recommended. Clients can experience results after the first few treatments, with many noticing an improvement straight away, the results will continue to improve with each additional session.
Who is Not suitable for this treatment?
Clients that are pregnant/lactating women, people with pacemakers, electronic implantable devices, metal implants in the treatment area, have silicone fillers or have infections in the treatment area cannot have this treatment.
What can I expect following the treatment?
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for about 15-30 minutes. There is no down time, adverse effects are uncommon and mild in nature. Mild redness or hive-like reactions are possible but rare.
You should increase water intake the day before, day of your treatment and after your treatment. This will allow you lymphatic system to work more efficiently, so you get the very best out of each treatment you have.
What happens after your sessions are complete?
As Maintenance, Clients should plan to have 1-2 sessions every 6 months following any type of skin tightening therapy. It’s also fantastic for maintaining after other advanced treatments like HIFU and Plasma.
