HIFU is the non invasive, pain free, face lift you’ve been looking for.
HIFU means High Intensity Focused Ultrasound which means it uses ultrasound technology to encourage the reproduction of collagen, through the stimulation of cells, which then encourage the tissue to rejuvenate. Meaning a reduction in fine lines and newer, younger looking skin.
It is the most advanced form of non surgical skin tightening in the world.
Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend the treatment for anyone experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity. This treatment is not recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.
HIFU works with an ultrasound penetrating the skin to heat up the muscle tissue, allowing for your body to reproduce collagen and heal the tissue.
Acoustic energy is applied to the area you’d like to improve and tighten, this reaches the subcutaneous layer. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. There is no downtime after this treatment.
The number of treatments depends on the degree of skin laxity. We would generally recommend 1-3 treatments depending on the area treated and the results from the last treatment.
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan.
A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment on its own takes approximately 30 minutes.
After your HIFU Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural ageing process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
