Going under the knife used to be the only way to significantly tighten saggy skin. At Body Catalyst we offer two advanced non-surgical skin tightening treatments, HIFU and radio frequency, which are quickly becoming the preferred way to tighten up loose skin caused by ageing, pregnancy, weight loss and even genetics. Both non-surgical treatments, HIFU and Radio Frequency achieve very similar outcomes to surgery without any of the pain, risk or downtime and guarantee amazing results without having to resort to invasive surgery. These treatments are used to treat loose or sagging skin in various parts of the body such as the face, neck, décolletage, underarms, abdomen and legs. HIFU however, also targets stubborn fat on certain areas.

Two of the most extensively used non-surgical treatments are HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) and Radio Frequency (RF).

HIFU (High Intensity Frequency Ultrasound)

  • A non-surgical treatment, Ulfit HIFU uses precisely controlled, micro-focused ultrasound energy that heats the targeted area up to 60o, revitalizing the three important levels of the infrastructure of the skin offering maximum collagen rejuvenation, SMAS lift and contour without needles or downtime.
  • HIFU results can be seen immediately post treatment, HIFU is an effective, and painless skin tightening treatment leaving your skin tightened, lifted and rejuvenated.
  • The results of a HIFU treatment can be seen instantly, and the collagen remodelling continues for up to three months, therefore, results will continue to improve wrinkles and fine lines, and the overall skin texture.
  • The length of each session of HIFU treatment depends on the areas being treated in one sitting. HIFU targets the tissue below the skin surface and thus does not have any side effects.

Radio Frequency (RF)
Radio Frequency is another method of non-surgical skin tightening. It involves using energy waves to heat the deep layer of the skin. Radio Frequency waves heat the dermis to a temperature ranging between 38o to 44o degrees celsius. This heat stimulation results in the production of collagen fibres.
RF is used to treat sagging and loose skin as well as wrinkles and fine lines, on the face and body.
The process usually takes about an hour or less and is completely painless.
With no major side effects and affordable prices, these non-surgical treatments are fast replacing the traditional surgical procedures used to treat body fat in the past.
