Happy Talking

Pre-Treatment Preparation

    • Avoid injectables 4 weeks in or near treatment areas before treatment
    • Avoid any facial peels 4 weeks before treatment
    • Avoid microdermabrasion 2 weeks before treatment
    • Avoid having any laser treatments on the area 2 weeks before treatment
    • Avoid excessive sun exposure (sun burn) on the area 2 weeks before treatment
    • Avoid skin care containing active ingredients 3-5 days before treatment (i.e. Vitamin A, Vitamin C, AHAs and BHAs)
    • HIFU is not suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding
    • If you have dermal implants, or any metal implants including chin implant, we unfortunately cannot treat with HIFU. This is because the metal attracts the HIFU energy and the area can become quite hot and painful
    • If you are currently taking any acne or skin thinning or photosensitive medication such as Roaccutane we cannot treat your skin as there is a risk of burning
    • If you have any open sores, acne, infection or skin sensitivity in the area we cannot treat with HIFU
    • We cannot treat with HIFU if you have previously had threads within the last year

Post-Treatment Care

  • It is normal for the area to feel warm immediately after the procedure.
  • The treated area may be flushed, red and feel tingly
  • Do not wax the treated area for 3-5 days
  • Do not laser the treated area for 2 weeks
  • Do not exfoliate the skin for 2-3 days
  • Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Avoid skin care containing active ingredients 3-5 days after treatment (i.e. Vitamin A, Vitamin C, AHAs and BHAs)
  • Avoid hot baths, steam rooms and massage for 24 hours
  • Avoid sun burn during the healing process of the skin for 2 weeks
  • If the skin feels hot or sensitive, apply aloe vera or a cold compress to the area
  • Apply SPF 30 daily
  • Drink plenty of water
  • A review of your progress is recommended after 12 weeks during a scheduled Follow Up appointment

Maintaining Your Results

Give Your Body Time

Immediately after the treatment, you may notice that your skin is firmer and its texture is lifted. The full effect of the treatment generally takes around 12-weeks to kick in, and through this time, you will continue to see a dramatic improvement in facial contouring, and a visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

50ml / $134

Medik8’s ultimate day cream. Advanced Day Ultimate Protect features sun protection, elevated with next-generation DNA repair enzymes and our most advanced 360° environmental shield, ever. The beautifully hydrating cream leaves the complexion with an invisible protective shield ready for the day ahead. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, skin is infused with long-lasting hydration, with future signs of ageing kept at bay

GENTLE CLEANSE™
Hydrating Rosemary Foam

150ml ($44)

A mild, rosemary-infused foaming wash that gently removes dirt, make-up and impurities, without unbalancing skin’s delicate moisture levels. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin, this ultra-gentle formula is lightweight yet extremely hydrating to leave skin feeling refreshed and glowing. Natural glycerine deeply moisturises skin while rosemary’s natural antioxidants prevent free radical damage, which can lead to premature skin ageing. The pH balanced formula is also free from sulphates and soaps which can be harsh on skin, to ensure you are left feeling fresh and hydrated and never tight

C-TETRA®
Lipid Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum

30ml / $82

Restore radiance and fight visible signs of ageing with C-Tetra, a super-light daily vitamin C serum. Antioxidant power is provided through vitamin C and E. Together, these actives help to combat sun and pollution-induced damage. The lightweight, uplifting formula helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as visibly brightening the complexion and balancing skin tone. Using a lipid-soluble form of vitamin C called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, the formula penetrates deep into skin to provide powerful antioxidant protection with minimal irritation. 

RETINOL 3TR™
Advanced 0.3% Vitamin A Serum

15ml / $75

Reveal a more youthful appearance with this lightweight Intelligent Retinol (vitamin A) serum. Designed to complement skin’s nightly regenerative cycle, Retinol 3TR™ resurfaces while you sleep to rejuvenate skin and restore radiance. Hailed as the most effective ingredient in anti-ageing, vitamin A improves skin texture, minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and balances uneven skin tone. Retinol also helps to decongest pores and regulate sebum production for a clearer looking complexion. Formulated with Time Release Technology, retinol is delivered gradually into the deeper layers of the skin throughout the night.

HYDR8 B5™
Liquid Rehydration Serum

30ml / $84

Infuse your skin with intense hydration and long-lasting moisture with Hydr8 B5, Medik8’s best-selling moisturising serum. Known for holding up to 1,000x its own weight in water, multi-weight hyaluronic acid draws and binds water from the atmosphere into the skin. Using an optimum blend of hyaluronic acid weights ensures skin is seriously moisturised from the deepest layers right up to the surface. Enriched with vitamin B5 to improve skin’s water retention and regeneration, skin is left plump and noticeably hydrated. The fast-absorbing, silky-smooth serum softens fine lines and wrinkles to leave skin supple, restored and nourished.

Tackle all visible signs of ageing around the eyes while deeply hydrating the delicate eye area. This multi-action anti-ageing eye serum helps to lift and shape the look of eye contours for an immediate well-rested look. With a complex of 5 age-defying peptides, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are reduced to create a bright-eyed awakening effect.
