The SkinTyte – otherwise known as HiFu, is an effective treatment for the dual purposes of generating new collagen in the skin and with the alternative head range, body contouring through the breakdown of body fat.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (Hi-Fu) works by focusing ultrasound in a very specific and controlled way so that only at the point of focus is there sufficient heat generated to achieve the desired therapeutic effect. This ability to precisely control the location of the treatment area in all 3 dimensions is an important differentiation between Hi-Fu and other ultrasound or radio frequency treatments. As the energy passes through the epidermis it is unfocused and has no discernable effect. At the focal point the ultrasound beam can readily produce temperatures in excess of 50C for the breakdown of fat or 65-70C for the generation of new collagen in the skin.

Cambridge Stratum also offers an alternative, which is the SkinTyte Pro. The SkinTyte Pro is the floor standing version, and has the advantage of a larger 15 inch display and an elegant floor standing design with built in storage. Click here to find out more.
