THOSE looking for the effects of a face-lift without having to undergo an invasive surgery before this upcoming New Year’s Eve should look no further than Lollana Clinic in Rainhill Sukhumvit 47. This high-end beauty clinic is offering the perfect, alternative treatment: HIFU, or high intensity focused ultrasound.
Starting at B100 per shot, this treatment will safely lift and tighten your skin.
It will protect your skin as it precisely
penetrates at deeper depths to treat beyond the dermis and foundation layers, which is where structural weakening starts.
What does it do?
HIFU is meant to activate cells, thus creating more collagen and elastin, thus making you look younger.
Skin elasticity improves and, at the end of the short and noninvasive treatment, patrons will look as though
they received a face-lift, but without the painful aftermath.
Less painful than ulthera but just as productive, the equipment at Lollana Clinic uses an ultrasound beams which are very small to ensure that the procedure is painless but produces the same results (of which there are many).
Those who undergo HIFU look younger, more rejuvenated, thinner around the chin and underneath the eyes and much more.
How long does it take?
The length of each session is entirely dependent on the treatment area, and a single treatment can take anywhere from ten to 30 minutes per area. Each
treatment is individually tailored to the customer in order for them to have the best results, and all treatments are discussed prior to receiving HIFU.
This year, Lollana Clinic is offering a 40 percent discount for BigChilli readers, giving away 600 shots for only B36,000.
The salon is open daily from 11am until 8pm.
