HIGH-INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND (HIFU)
HIFU treatments have become de rigueur for face lifting. For the uninitiated, HIFU, short for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (超声刀), delivers the power of ultrasound energy deep into your skin. It targets the dermis and SMAS layers to stimulate collagen reproduction for a lifting and tightening effect. Because the SMAS layer is where surgeons target during a surgical facelift, HIFU has earned itself a reputation of being a non-surgical facelift.
HIFU facelift device uses focused ultrasound energy to target a specific region of the tissues under the skin. This energy heats these tissues causing cellular damage and stimulating a high production of collagen, a type of protein that gives the skin its shape. This increase in collagen synthesis leads to tighter, firmer skin.
HIFU skin treatment does not lead to any unnatural or unfavorable changes. Rather it makes your skin to be healthier, stronger, and younger-looking.
It is involved in the removal and tightening of excess skin in the neck region and helpful in tightening of the décolletage.
It helps in lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids thus giving you that youthful look; enhancing jawline definition thus giving your face a nice structure.
In addition, it also helps in the reduction of wrinkle on the face and neck region making your skin look smoother and gives you a natural-looking and long-lasting result within a short period of time.
Aging affects us all – the way we act, the way we feel, and definitely the way we look. But with advancements in skin care, you can have a say in the way aging affects your skin – and maybe even get back to the way you looked not so long ago.

MII PAIN MANAGEMENT
Shockwave Therapy is an established and effective treatment for soft-tissue injuries. Shockwaves stimulate the regeneration of skeletal muscle tissue and accelerate repair processes. It is widely used in physiotherapy, podiatry, sports medicine, urology and orthopedics to provide fast pain relief and increased mobility; and it is increasingly used as a treatment for health problems such as erectile dysfunction, slow-healing wounds, cellulite and neurological conditions.
Shockwave Therapy machines pass short, intense energy sound waves, travelling faster than the speed of sound, into affected tissues. This causes microtrauma, increases blood flow and stimulates an acute inflammatory response which aids the healing process.
The many benefits of Shockwave Therapy:
Fewer potential complications
Fast treatment: 20 minutes per session
Significant clinical benefit: often seen 6 to 8 weeks after treatment
INTRAVENOUS IRON INFUSION
Iron is essential for performance because of its role in energy metabolism, oxygen transport & acid-base balance. The oxidative capacity of the muscle is reduced when an athlete is iron deficient. The average person has 3,000-4,000mg of iron in the body. 1-2mg is lost and 1-2mg is absorbed and utilised daily. Every 1ml of blood contains 0.5mg of iron and excess blood loss is the key cause of iron deficiency.
1 in 3 women suffer from iron deficiency. Heavy Menstrual Bleeding (HMB) is the leading cause of iron deficiency putting women at increased risk. Also, during pregnancy the iron requirements increase significantly - especially in the 3rd trimester. Unfortunately diet alone cannot always support the increased iron demands and oral iron supplements are often poorly tolerated or not effective.
If iron deficiency is not treated it may lead to impaired quality of life, a reduced immune system and ultimately result in anaemia.
In the last decade new preparations of iron have been developed that permit 'total dose' infusions safely in 15 to 30 minutes. At Miiren, we can safely and effectively give you enough iron to replenish your iron stores in a singly treatment.
An iron infusion is considerably faster (1hour) and more effective than iron tablets (6-12 months). Iron is delivered straight to the muscles and bone marrow, where it is needed most and patients treated in our clinic routinely advise symptomatic improvements within ~ 48 hours to 1 week.
Following the infusion, provided you maintain a healthy diet which includes iron, you will not need any further treatment with iron tablets.
