What is 3D HIFU?
3D HIFU (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) It was originally introduced for its use in treatment of cancer like in bladder , prostate ,kidney cancer, but since it did not prove to be as effective as surgical techniques, it lost its importance in treating cancer. 3D Hifu has created a benchmark in the field of non surgical face lift. It is an acoustic energy, known to propagate much deeper through tissue than laser or radio frequency (RF) energy, has been previously investigated for use in bulk heating for the treatments of solid organ tumors as mentioned above and is recently adapted for subcutaneous lipolysis.
3D HIFU (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) targets the entire face and neck, achieving brow lifting, jowl lifting, nasolabial fold (smile lines) reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. The result is a naturally youthful appearance that retains full expression and movement.
The intense ultrasound energy causes actual skin rejuvenation so you look and feel younger, with none of the downsides of injectables or surgery! We treat the entire face so you won’t look youthful in one area and ten years older in another!
How 3D HIFU works
The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different selected depths, following which a wound healing response results in the formation of new collagen thus providing a longer term tightening of the skin. There is no down time associated with this non-invasive procedure, unlike harsh chemical peels you won’t have to hide your face while it recovers. You will walk out looking completely, naturally, younger.
What areas can be improved with 3D-HIFU?
This treatment is fantastic for overall skin tightening and rejuvenation with particularly good results in lifting the jowls, reducing “turkey neck”, and smoothing crows feet, smile lines and frown lines.
We also use the treatment to tighten skin on the belly post childbirth or after significant weight loss. Similarly crepey skin on the arms can be treated.
Does Hifu Face Lifting Hurt?
It does not cause major discomfort. You may feel some discomfort, warm or heat sensations or even a slight pain that lasts for a few seconds and only during the pulsation cycle when the ultrasound energy is being applied.
This discomfort or sometimes even pain is very brief and a good sign that collagen-building process has begun.The level of discomfort depends on the settings used, the area being treated, and the individual sensitivity. Around the eyes and over any bony prominence tend to be more intense. The neck region seems to be the area that tolerates the 3D HIFU treatment the best.
We can use a lower energy level and increased number of shots to achieve the desired results with much lower discomfort/pain level. The second factor related to pain/discomfort during 3D HIFU procedure is the type of skin being treated. People with thicker skin or more dense areas will tolerate 3D HIFU treatment very well.
As with any heat-based cosmetic procedure, there are variable degrees of discomfort associated with 3D HIFU skin tightening. In our practice, pain is usually tolerable and none of our clients needed and pain killers or anxiolytics.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of sessions is decided by the bulk of adipose tissue, the extent of sagging skin and the desired result. Usually,1 session is sufficient, but if 2 sessions are needed then the 2nd session should be at a gap of 6 months after the result of 1st session has shown Maintenance once a year.
A single treatment gives a long lasting result that will leave your skin in better condition for having had the treatment than not. Results last 18 months to 2 years after which the ageing process will take over. Unlike with many other treatments you will not experience a sudden “droop”. The results fade naturally as you age.
3D HIFU has been able to deliver some very impressive results for our clients. Results can often be seen immediately after treatment but most results start approximately 2 to 3 weeks after treatment, with most clients seeing full results 16 weeks post treatment. Some results continue to improve over 6 months. If you have a good skin care routine, you will have more results.
Results as the process of wound healing and collagen remodeling takes 2-3 weeks, the patient will see only 10% result in 1st month, another 10% in 2nd month and 80% result in 3rd month.
There may be post procedure redness which settles in about an hour. It’s Recommend to avoid laughing, chewing too much for that day.

What is Fibroblast Master Plasma Pen?
Plasma Pen, a new-era skin tightening technology provides a non-surgical solution for lifting, tightening and reducing skin. Plasma Pen works by placing a probe near to the skin which produces a micro-millimeter sized pulse of ‘plasmatic lightening’ which then superficially,evaporates and causes the immediate surrounding area of skin to contract. This contraction tightens this area giving your skin a rejuvenated, natural and more youthful appearance.This process can reduce excess skin and in particular can tighten the eyelid and under eye area. It’s also hugely popular in treating crow’s feet, wrinkles around the mouth, smoker’s lines, scar tissue and superficial lines commonly seen on the neck, décolletage and body areas.During treatment a series of tiny brown spots are strategically placed on the area of concern pulling the cells closer together resulting in a tightening and lifting effect. Over a period of days after the treatment, the fibroblasts in the skin produce new collagen and elastin.
Who is a Good Candidate for Plasma Pen Skin Tightening?
The best candidates for the Plasma Pen are patients who are looking to improve the appearance, volume, and elasticity of the skin.
The procedure is not recommended for patients who:
Are experiencing a Herpes Simplex Virus outbreak
Have a pacemaker installed
Are pregnant or breastfeeding
Have had Botox recently
Have used Accutane within the last year
Be sure to ask your doctor or aesthetician whether or not Plasma Pen skin tightening is the right procedure for you.
How Plasma Pen works?
When the needle touch the freckle skin,it produce plasma with high temperature as 2000 ℃ immediately, and carbonize the spot freckle , then remove it.
When the needle touch the freckle spot,it will produce a small flame which is different from common flame.
The microvascular will be solidified quickly without bleeding during the treatment.
Then it will form carbon scabs protect wound skin from infection.
After about 1 week, scab will shed without scar.
What Can The Plasma Pen Treat?
Plasma lift skin tightening can be used to treat skin on almost all areas of the body. However, it is particularly effective in treating previously hard to treat areas such as the upper and lower eyelids, and the fine lines around the mouth. It is commonly used to treat wrinkles and loose skin on the face, neck, and jawline. The Plasma Pen can also be used for loose skin on the arms or the abdomen. This is also a great treatment option for reducing the appearance of acne scars, as well as other types of scarring.
Where can it treat?
Plasma Pen has amazing results for non-surgical blepharoplasty (non-surgical eyelid lift), crow’s feet, deep smoker’s lines, neck lines, and crepey skin commonly seen on the abdomen and décolleté.
What can I expect during my treatment?
After a pre-treatment consultation your Plasma Pen practitioner will apply a numbing cream to the area to make the treatment more comfortable. Following this your practitioner will then create strategically placed micro-millimeter sized injuries to the area of concern which will create a small brown dot on the skin and immediately tighten the cells together. The results of your treatment will continue to improve for the up to 13 weeks post treatment.
How Does Plasma Pen Skin Tightening Work?
The tip of the pen creates a plasma energy arc which is then transferred from the tip of the needle to the surface of the skin. The tissues of the skin are sublimated, or modified, during treatment. The treatment is extremely precise, meaning that the tissues surrounding the area of treatment remain untouched and intact. This results in the tightening of the skin in the desired area. As a result of this, excess skin is reduced and the remaining skin is toned, tightened, and the wrinkles are reduced.
This method of skin resurfacing creates a controlled skin damage, which activates the normal skin-healing process. This process leads to skin remodeling, which then improves various signs ofaging.
Unlike other methods of skin ablation, there are no open wounds during the healing phase. Therefore, there is minimal risk of scarring, infection or loss of pigmentation.
Plasma Pen Skin Resurfacing Results
In most cases, initial results are visible immediately after treatment. In the first stages of healing, small dry spots called echars form on the skin and remain there for about a week before falling off. This is normal and temporary. Because the treatment stimulates the natural body healing process, it typically takes eight weeks to see the full benefits of the treatment.
How Long Do Plasma Pen Results Last?
The results of the plasma pen are permanent, because you have stimulated your body’s natural healing process. The treatment can be repeated as necessary to obtain the desired results. In most cases, one to four treatments will produce the most optimal results. After treatment, one will continue to age, but the results of plasma skin resurfacing are long-lasting.
How many treatments are required?
This will vary between each individual and will depend on the area that requires treating. Older, looser skin will require more than one session but generally between 1 to 4 sessions are recommended every 8 weeks although visible results can be seen after one treatment. This will be discussed at the initial consultation.
How much does the treatment cost?
- Crows Feet €200
- Under Eye €300
- Upper Eye €300
- All three (full eye rejuvenation) €700
- Forehead €350
- Nasolabiais €250
- Upper Lip €200

- Face rejuvenation €500
- Neck or decollete rejuvenation (crepiness) €500
- Stretch-Marks from €100
- Millia, Mole, Raised Warts, Skin Tag Removal from €50
Is there any downtime?
Its dry healing, recovery time will depend on the client andthe area treated and the natural rate of recovery. It is normal for sensitive areas such as eyelids to become swollen and we would recommend not applying makeup, which to some people this may mean downtime. Some areas weep slightly after treatment; this is simply plasma and is quite natural. As the spots begin to heal they turn into crusts and flake off naturally.
What results can I expect to see?
With increased collagen and elastin in the skin, there will be an immediate tightening of the skin post treatment and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. This effect will continue to take place for up to 13 weeks post treatment. However, this does depend on the degree of correction required, your age and your lifestyle. For best results we recommend a course of at least 1 to 4 treatments.
Are there any side effects?
Immediately after the treatment you will have a series of small brown dots covering the treatment area. As they heal, they will naturally turn to crusts and will flake off over the coming seven days. Its is normal for sensitive areas like the delicate eye areas to swell for up to 48 hours post treatment. Recovery time is completely individual and depends on area treated and natural rate of recovery.
Can it overheat the skin?
The tip of the probe is able to precisely direct the arc to the skin in small dots thereby reducing the heat spreading across the skin. In comparison to other plasma unit devices on the market which can emit too much heat, Plasma Pen has a finer probe which avoids the skin from overheating.
What is the aftercare?
Let us mention that the aftercare procedure is extremely important part of the Plasma Pen treatment, as we want to avoid heat, sun damage and hyperpigmentation on the treated area.
The aftercare is the most importance after the Plasma Pen , to obtain the best
possible results from treatment. If any of the points are not adhered to then hyper pigmentation

The facial involves a machine that sprays atomized moisturizers onto the skin using a stream of pressurized oxygen. The treatment is supposed to hydrate skin immediately, making the face appear smoother and plumper.
The Oxygen facial Benefits
Speeds Up Cell Turnover:
Our skin cells have a limited lifetime. They die, and new cells replace them. Oxygen is crucial for cell regeneration. It increases the rate at which new cells grow, which, in turn, helps in scar (from acne) healing. The oxygen facial gives an extra dose of oxygen to your skin cells, thus aiding faster cell turnover.
Moisturises Your Skin:
Constant exposure to the sun, dust, and pollution rob your skin of its natural moisture content. This makes it extremely dry and lifeless. And if you have dry skin and dehydrated , these issues can make your skin worse. The oxygen facial deeply moisturizes your skin, restoring its pH balance and shielding it from sun damage.
Promotes Collagen Production:
The infusion of oxygen and vitamins into the skin encourages the production of collagen, which helps plump up facial features and restore volume and firmness to skin that has lost elasticity.
Helps Detox the Skin:
Everyday toxins like air pollution and cigarette smoke rob the skin of much-needed oxygen. An oxygen facial helps reverse the effects of environmental pollutants and rejuvenates oxygen-starved skin.
No Side Effects:
The process of delivering the oxygen and serum is quite gentle, which makes oxygen facial suitable for individuals with sensitive skin and for those who would rather avoid injections or chemical treatments. After an oxygen facial, you can resume normal activities immediately, even applying makeup and using your normal facial products.
After an oxygen facial, you can expect to see a more refreshed and rejuvenated complexion. One that makes you look well-rested with a just-back-from-vacation glow. For this reason, the oxygen facial is perfect before special occasions when you want to look your best without any downtime.

Lipodystrophy Gynoid is the correct, technical name for “cellulite”, though the term also refers to bacterial infection of the subcutaneous tissues; outside the medical sphere the term already is enshrined. Cellulite is a change caused by the accumulation of fat, water and toxins in the cells, making these cells full and hard, leaving the area with unevenness and nodules, which manifests itself externally as an “orange peel” texture. It is caused by changes in fatty tissue under the skin, in conjunction with microcirculation alterations and a consequent increase in fibrous tissue.
What is ultrasonic cavitation?
Cavitation is a physical phenomenon of vaporization of a liquid by reducing the pressure, caused by the movement of sound waves. When low-frequency ultrasonic waves reach the adipose tissue they create positive and negative pressures, generating millions of microscopic air bubbles. The application of ultrasound disrupts the adipose tissue, breaking it down.
