How does HIFU treatment work?

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a novel face treatment to improve skin tone that uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly, damaging the cells in the targeted area. This actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin.

This not only improves the texture and surface of the skin on the face, but can lift and tighten unwanted sagging areas like jowls or double chins, is safe, gentle and non-invasive, and is suitable for both men and women.


What are the benefits of HIFU face treatment?

The increase in collagen production after HIFU face treatment results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. One of the advantages of this technology is its specificity; the high-frequency ultrasound beams can be adjusted and focused on a particular tissue site below the skin’s surface, meaning that there is no no damage to the upper layers of the skin and nearby tissue. You can have your session and go straight back out!


One of the main benefits of this contouring treatment is how targeted it can be, giving you effective results on areas such as your cheekbones and around your eyes with no downtime! Our HIFU face treatment sessions can target more precise areas that the body sessions, making it ideal for focussing on issues like crows’ feet or your jawline.


A further (and maybe the most important) benefit is how convenient and painless HIFU treatment is – our clients come in on their lunch hour over a series of weeks for their sessions. In the hands of our trained professionals, the HIFU technology will stimulate and rejuvenate your collagen fibres, giving you smoother, tighter skin, greater contouring, improved skin tone and fewer wrinkles, all leading to a more youthful appearance.


When will I see results?

As with all of our skin tightening, fat loss and contouring treatments, they are best repeated over a series of appointments to get the greatest benefit, which can be seen after four sessions or around twelve weeks. Clients often, however, see results after just one or two sessions of HIFU face treatment. No bruising, no recovery time, just plumper, more toned skin!


As with many of of our treatments, HIFU is a fat loss treatment that helps with contouring, and is not a replacement for other weight loss treatments. It’s most effective on people over 30 with mild form of loose skin, giving noticeable and long-lasting results after a course of treatments.


If you’re looking for effective, long-lasting treatment to improve problem areas on your face and boost your confidence, then a course of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a painless and safe way to get solid results after just a few sessions.
