The Ultimate Non-Surgical Facelift!
Collagen is the structural protein in our body responsible for giving our skin its elasticity, keeping it plump and preventing it from sagging. From our early twenties, the body begins to produce approximately 1% less collagen each year. Over time, this results in fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of volume in places such as the cheeks and under the eyes.
At Figura Skin Clinic, we are able to combat these signs of ageing with the revolutionary skin tightening device – The Focus Dual®. Treatments also reduce pore size, diminish the appearance of acne and scarring, and improve skin tone and texture.
By stimulating the production of collagen through the use of two separate technologies, the Focus Dual® offers skin tightening results like never before. Every layer of skin, including the SMAS, reticular dermis, papillary dermis and epidermis, can be targeted in a single treatment, optimising anti-ageing outcomes.
In addition to its skin-firming capabilities, the Focus Dual® can dramatically improve the appearance of skin texture and scars, including acne scarring. Formed when the deeper layers of the skin are damaged, scars develop due to the body fighting to quickly heal the skin, resulting in a different quality and structure of collagen being produced. Focus Dual® treatments break down old scar tissue, replacing it with new, healthy collagen structures.
How Does The Focus Dual® Work?
The Focus Dual® combines radiofrequency RF Microneedling with high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to enhance anti-ageing results. These technologies treat every layer of the skin to lift, firm and tighten.
The device places tiny needles against the target area, puncturing the skin and prompting its natural healing response. This triggers the production of new collagen-rich tissue. Radio frequency, which converts to heat energy, is simultaneously delivered to deeper layers of the skin, stimulating neocollagenesis which leads to stronger, firmer skin.
The Focus Dual® uses non-insulated needles which are active along their entire length, causing high volumetric heating. This contributes to shorter treatment times, less trauma and reduced downtime. The superfine needles provide a safer treatment, leading to minimal bleeding, faster healing and a lower risk of infection.
HIFU uses ultrasound to heat the skin to 60-70℃, speeding up the collagen induction process. Its ability to reach the SMAS layer offers striking results as this is the layer of skin tightened by plastic surgeons during cosmetic surgery. The Focus Dual® achieves this high level of skin tightening and body sculpting with a non-invasive procedure.
For body contouring with HIFU, the ultrasound energy penetrates through the layers of skin and into the subcutaneous tissue. As this energy converts to heat, the cell membranes of adipose cells are disturbed, destroying fatty deposits. The body’s lymphatic system then naturally disposes of the damaged cells.
The Focus Dual® offers unparalleled results in skin tightening, scar reduction and body sculpting. Trust this unique combination of two gold-standard technologies to reverse the signs of ageing and revitalise your skin.
We are all individuals and as such, the number of treatments and the results from treatments will vary from person to person. Similarly, due to the varying response of the individual, the down-time, recovery and the longer term results achieved following the treatment will differ from person to person. The information we provide you with is based on the extensive experience we have gained from treating a wide range of clients of differing age and gender.
