Sharyn Mallinson from Beauty Secrets says they're always staying up-to-date with the latest technology and devices. "As soon as something comes out, we get it," Sharyn says.

Australian distributor Soma Group supplies the latest and greatest device used at Beauty Secrets.

"The biggest thing at the moment is the HIFU, which stands for high intensity focussed ultrasound," Sharyn explains.

The Soma Sonix 3D HIFU System's product description says "Theoretically, the technology integrated in SomaSonix can be applied to skin surfaces all over the body. However, the facial area is the most common treated part of the body and has the most cumulated experience. The most commonly requested treatment sites include the upper-face, mid-face, lower- face and the upper neck."

It also says, "While SomaSonix does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it's an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery".

In terms of what it does, "The treatment uses the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the decolletage.

"HIFU treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won't duplicate the results of a facelift. However it is a great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery."
