The other day, I went to my 2nd Get Laud photoshoot and I was surprised when my client, Ms. Jennifer asked me "PUMAYAT KA?!? WAG KA MASYADO PAPAYAT, MAWAWALAN KAMI NG PLUS SIZE MODEL!" with matching laughs! Hahaha! Even the photographers in the shoot (who also did the photography in our last Get Laud shoot the past October) commented that yes, my face has slimmed down obviously compared to the last time and they based it on the photos they took of me months ago and my photos from the shoot yesterday.
I love being a plus size model, I love my body, all parts of it - even the areas with flaws: cellulites, stretchmarks, fats, I embrace it. BUT of course it is always beneficial that we take care of our bodies and maintain a pleasing and presentable appearance.
One of the things that I did not regret having done is facial contouring using 3D Hifu last Feb 3. What it did was it melted most of the the excess fats in my cheeks and chin esulting to a slimmer face. After the session, my face felt tighter and a bit slimmer. They said, this treatment is also good for smoothening and tightening the skin giving it a youthful look since it minimizes wrinkles too.
So what is 3D Hifu?
Three-Dimension High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, better known as 3D-HIFU, is shaking up the beauty scene as it introduces a more innovative, more targeted, painless and non-surgical therapeutic treatment to tighten and lift skin, and even improve its support in achieving a more youthful look.
Unlike the regular Hifu, 3D HIFU is a one shot, 11 lines laser and high-intensity focused hifu that markets a more progressive and latest upgrade of creating a visible lift, face sculpting and fat reduction. It uses a 3-dimension technology that targets a wider and deeper area of the face or body. It is a slimming procedure that gives more visible result as fast as after first session. Brow, jaw and cheeks are lifted as well as the neck. It produces high collagen stimulation that gives more visible effect in the coming weeks and months. Unlike regular hifu, 3D hifu is the latest and more advanced when it comes to skin tightening, contouring and slimming.
For the face, depending on the skin situation, the procedure can be done after 6 months or 1 year after the prior 3d hifu session, since this treatment is strong and very intense, it is not recommended to be done every month. However, for aomeone who is overweight like me (who needs to lose 35 lbs or more to achieve their ideal BMI), it is recommend that my next session could be done after 2 months.
For the body, it can be done every 3 weeks to a month, depending on the person's current body situation and their ideal body to achieve.
No downtime. No side effects.
Noticeable results was seen immediately afterwards.
More effective than the rf and cavitation treatments that I have tried in the past.
It could be painful. Honestly, pain is tolerable naman (and will depend on a person's pain threshold) and the intensity can be adjusted to clients preference. BUT since this procedure is very intense, I suggest that they opt to have a topical anesthesia applied 15 minutes prior the procedure to numb the area that will be treated.
On the day itself, I took a before and after photos. As you can clearly see, I obviously have a chubby face and neck (esp on the left picture) BUT after the procedure I immediately felt my face become tighter and upon touching, I noticed that the fats on my double chin and cheeks have lessened.
Here are more photos of the side view.
Prior to the 3D Hifu treatment, my face was cleansed and topical anesthesia cream was applied. I suggest not wearing makeup if you are planning to have this procedure for hygiene purposes because after the session, it is a must to NOT wash your face after 12-18 hours, also eating spicy food and cold drinks immediately after the procedure is a no-no so as to not cancel out the effects of 3D Hifu.
For those who are asking why I have so many blemishes on my jawline and chin, they are hormonal acne that I have been trying to medicate for a few weeks now. No skincare products could actually fix them but medicine (won't recommend any brands, better talk to your OB) so I also had to lessen my carbs and sugar intake, and doing so helped as well in losing a bit of weight.
Rose told me that the effects of 3D Hifu could be seen in a week or two, meaning that, yes, there will be more fats to lose in the treated area during those times (unless you eat SO MANY carbs and drink sugary stuff like a giant elephant, results will be otherwise of course). And so, I made sure to take photos 1 week AND 2 weeks afterwards.
Here are the results:
Photo above shows my face a few months BEFORE the procedure and 1 week AFTER the procedure. Same angle, slimmer chin. Alright, I still have some double chin left, I know haha, BUT the fact that it looks noticeable means that 3D Hifu is definitely effective! What I did after the treatment is lessening my carb and sugar intake (not totally removing them from my diet) which also helped in losing 2-5 pounds in 2 weeks.
Comparing my photo ONE WEEK AFTER and TWO WEEKS AFTER the 3D Hifu session, I felt a minimal change upon touching my face, it feels tighter and my double chin felt reduced minimally although in the photos, they are not that much noticeable, maybe a tiny bit of difference.
So all in all, here are my thoughts:
3D Hifu by Rose Stein is definitely effective, fast, and convenient! If you wanted to undergo 3D-Hifu they are the people to call. They provide exclusive home treatments or you can visit them at the Luxe Spa at Trump Tower, Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City. Price range starts at P18,500 per area.
