They believe that a multitude of factors contribute to skin health and beauty. That is why having treatment strategies that combine several treatment modalities that maximise effectiveness and reduce downtime is a good way to firmer, healthier, clearer, and more youthful skin. For instance, while doctor treatments are highly effective in enhancing one's looks, they should be paired with complementary treatment facials and a healthy skincare regime for the maintenance of one's looks.
Bio Aestetic is a new beauty clinic where you can undergo HIFU.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or HIFU as it is popularly known, is the latest in non-invasive facelifts. The revolutionary facelift gives the facial muscles a ‘workout’ by applying ultrasound energy deep into the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer, using the HIFU technology. The result is a visibly intense, tightening effect on the skin.
With increasing stress levels, the need to maintain healthy, supple skin increases. HIFU works to delay the onset of ageing, saggy skin far before it is welcome. THE SMAS layer is located between the subcutaneous fat and muscle (4.5mm beneath the fascia). As the skin ages, the SMAS layer weakens due to gravity and leads to loose skin and the development of wrinkles. The ultrasound procedure shrinks the SMAS layer by firing ultrasound shots with thermal energy in order to stimulate the skin to regenerate collagen and elastin deep within the skin.
Unlike botox or a surgical face lift, no going under the knife is involved, no general anesthesia and thus minimal pain, bleeding or infection. HIFU also generates enough energy to coagulate necrosis for regeneration, without causing any harm to the skin tissue.

All these add to the improved coverage within the club, alongside lighting enhancements.
