HIFU NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT
HIFU NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT OVERVIEW
HIFU ( High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is considered to be a relatively new, state-of-the-art cosmetic technology, which has been used to tighten and lift the skin and tissue under the skin, in order to reduce wrinkles and improve the elasticity and tone of skin.
What makes HIFU so appealing is that all of this can be achieved in just one session.
HIFU KEY POINTS SUMMARY
The focussed ultrasound energy is able to penetrate the dermis and under the dermis and works on deep layers of the tissue which were only accessible before by invasive surgical facelifts. HIFU completely changes the game as it is able to reach the same layers without any cuts/incisions to the skin, meaning you will need minimal down time and can go back to work right after treatment. The success rate for HIFU has been to the extent that some people call HIFU the non-surgical facelift.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HIFU, or High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound, is a breakthrough technology offering a non-invasive alternative to a traditional face lift, and is the only FDA approved treatment with a specific intent for improvement of lines and wrinkles on the face and décolleté, penetrating to depths only previously possible with surgery, without damaging the skin surface & superficial layers which was the problem with the use of laser and radio frequency (RF) equipment.
It also helps to improve the tone and all the features of your face such as your eyes, cheeks, mouth, chin and skin also making it a viable alternative to Botox, with the benefit of being able to maintain facial expression. Excellent for post surgical face lift to maintain the lift and treat blood stasis, scarring, and numbness.
HIFU can also be used to tighten and tone other parts of the body.
HIFU uses high intensity ultrasound to lift and tighten skin without any need for incisions. Ultrasound is a form of energy that is significantly different than light such as IPL and Lasers or Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. HIFU protects the surface of the skin, whilst also penetrating at deeper depths and higher temperatures (roughly 64°C) than Radio Frequency. For example, treating beyond the Dermis and Foundation layers, where structural weakening starts. This is all done precisely and safely to offer fantastic results.
As a completely non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound offers patients many benefits over other procedures:
- Clinically Proven
- FDA approved
- Safe and Effective
- Cost Effective Alternative to a Surgical Face Lift
- No Need for Anaesthesia or Sedation
- No Incisions or Risk of Infection
- No Downtime
- Comfortable and Painless Treatments
- Results can be seen after just one treatment (however some may need more than one treatment to obtain optimal results).
- Results can last for 1 year
- Usually one treatment needed to see results
With the advantage of three depth cartridges (1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm), HIFU has the capability of penetrating to depths only previously possible with surgery. Our HIFU also has cartridges for 7 & 13mm depth penetration, which can be used for abdomen, flanks, arms & thighs.
Any adult who wishes to tighten and uplift their skin. It is used more for people in their 40s or beyond but, clinically speaking, can be used for all adults of all skin types and tones.

A free, no-obligation consultation is given where we check your suitability for the procedure and assess your requirements so that we can provide a solution for you. We then discuss realistic results and any other relevant information. We also obtain your informed consent before starting HIFU treatment.
You can usually see some results immediately after treatment, with full results becoming visible in 3 to 6 months post-procedure.
The duration of results, like the results themselves, differ from person to person, but usually results can last up to one year, and in some rare cases possibly beyond.
This depends on the age and skin of the person being treated, however one treatment is usually sufficient to provide good results for roughly one year (although this varies).
