Doublo is a an innovative device that uses state-of-the-art HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin by using the body’s own healing response. It is the only non-invasive treatment that targets the deep dermis, subcutaneous fat and the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) without harming the skin or surrounding tissues. HIFU initiates a gradual skin tightening and lifting effect spanning over several months as a result of activating the skin’s natural regenerative response by prompting cells to step up collagen and elastin production whilst reducing unwanted fat tissues. With continued collagen remodeling long after treatment, you effortlessly achieve remarkable facial contouring and youthful skin without surgery or downtime.
Doublo 5 effects on the skin:
Can Doublo replace a face lift?
Doublo is an “uplift” not a “face lift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a worthwhile option for those not wanting to go under the knife or for those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How is Doublo different from lasers?
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). Doublo addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery that lift and lend support to the skin. Therefore, laser treatments and Doublo are quite complementary.
Who is a good candidate for Doublo?
A good candidate for Doublo is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How long does the Duoblo treatment take?
Without any downtime, a full-face treatment takes 30-45 minutes and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 15-20 minutes. Total appointment time will vary.
Does a Doublo treatment hurt?
Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient. You may feel minor discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. However, this is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
When will I see results?
Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.
How long do results last?
Patients treated with Doublo still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Most patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen-building process).
Is there any downtime?
As Doublo is a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime. You may return to your normal activities after the treatment. However, some patients may experience slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
Besides the initial slight redness immediately after a treatment for an hour or so, a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
