The next best thing to a face lift.

HIFU is the most sought after lifting treatment for the face and neck. The treatment lifts, tightens, tones and reduces loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity.

The high intensity focused ultrasound penetrates the foundation layer of your skin, bypassing the surface of the skin and delivering a targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives. As the collagen fibres rejuvenate and shorten there is a tightening effect and gently and gradually the skin and tissue memory is restored.

This treatment really comes into its own for lifting and tightening the cheek area and sharpening the jowls and jawline; lifting the brow; reducing wrinkles around the forehead, eyes and lips; reducing excess skin on upper eyelids; improving the chin outline and reducing marionette lines; removing the ageing wrinkles from the neck; improving the skin quality and tightening loose skin.

There is no special preparation or recuperation and usually takes one treatment to gain a noticeable result. Some clients enjoy an initial effect immediately following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting will take place in just 2 to 8 weeks, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and replenished.

The treatment is a one off and lasts anywhere between 6 months to 1 or 2 years depending on your age, diet and lifestyle.

The treatment

The clients make up is removed. A gel is applied to the area that will be treated and the ultrasonic device is passed over the skin. After the treatment we give you a mini facial.

A single area can be treated say the jowls which takes around 30 to 40 minutes. A full face and neck treatment takes around 90 minutes.

The results take around 2 weeks to start to see an an effect and the full results take up to 8 weeks. We will have you in for a radio frequency treatment at 2 weeks which boosts the effects of the treatment.

There can be a slight redness, swelling, tenderness and occasionally bruising. This will settle down quickly.

There is no downtime.

There are a few contraindications such as open facial wounds or lesions, metal stents/implants in the face or neck (dental implants are fine), implantable electrical devices, permanent dermal implants, anti-thrombosis therapy, an active systemic or skin disease which may hinder regeneration, or hemorrhagic disorders or dysfunctions.

No downtime, as there is no surgery, so you can return to normal life straight away. No special measures need to be taken. We recommend a nourishing face mask to enrich the skin. Moisturising the skin 3 times a day. Use a sunscreen. Avoid steam rooms and saunas for 2 weeks. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
Any redness or swelling is short lived.
There can be a slight redness for a few hours following the treatment. A small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling, bruising or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and do not last for long. Very rarely a short lived numbness.
HIFU does not cause major discomfort, but you may feel some tingling discomfort, a warm sensation or even a slight prickly pain that lasts less than a few seconds and only during the pulsation cycle when ultrasound energy is being applied. This discomfort is very brief and a good sign that the collagen building process has begun.
Comfort thresholds can vary from patient to patient, and we will discuss with you your options for making the experience as pleasant as possible.
Usually clients leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
