Revitalise your face, neck and body with HIFU– a revolutionary skin-tightening procedure that helps you to lift, smooth and tighten sagging skin without surgery.

HIFU non-surgical face lift is a great way of addressing the effects of skin ageing without the downtime associated with surgery.

HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’ and it is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to lift, firm and tighten the skin.

HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin, contracting all skin

layers in just one treatment! This stimulates the creation of new collagen in the area. HIFU is highly effective in firming, tightening and lifting the facial skin and reducing excess skin on the body.

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm, tight and lifted. As we age, collagen loses its structure and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity. HIFU kickstarts the repair process and helps the skin to produce fresh, strong collagen.

Due to the non-invasive nature of HIFU treatments, there is virtually no downtime. You may experience slight redness following the treatment, and a small percentage of our clients do experience minor swelling, tingling or tenderness. These symptoms are mild and temporary.

You’ll be able to return to your normal activities straight away, and there are no special recovery measures needed. This is why HIFU has earned the name “lunchtime face lift”.

Some clients do see immediate initial effects; however, the ultimate lifting, firming and tightening results will take place over the following 2 to 3 months. During this time, older collagen structures are replaced by new, strong collagen. As the collagen-building process continues, you may see further improvements up to 6 months after the final procedure.

This non-surgical face lift works on the SMAS layer deep below the skin, which is the area surgeons tighten for face and neck lifts. Rather than surgery, the Focus Dual harnesses ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin.

You may experience some mild heating or a slight tingling sensation during treatment. Patients describe this as moderate and acceptable.

Treatments are carried out every 4-6 weeks and typically between 1 and 3 treatments are recommended for best results. Top-up sessions are performed as required, but usually only once or twice a year.

Results can usually be seen immediately, but the results get better and better up to 12 weeks post treatment as your collagen is renewed. We expect results to last 1-2 years but this can be dependent on lifestyle and maintenance.
