High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) for the face and body
Results-based, non-invasive treatment
An advanced, non-surgical approach to lifting and tightening
Have you noticed that your jowls are sagging? Do you look tired because your brow area has drooped over time? Or perhaps you feel that love handles or bingo wings are just impossible to budge?
High-intensity focused ultrasound is a groundbreaking technology, that lifts and firms skin for both face and body.* Results can be seen from just a single treatment and there are no incisions, needles, anaesthetic or surgery involved.
For the face, HIFU can create facelift-like effects by tightening and rejuvenating the skin overall for a younger look. It can also lift the brow area, jowls and jawline and reduce nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the nose to mouth) and fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.* It works by delivering highly-focused acoustic energy to 3 different selected depths within the skin. This creates thermal coagulation zones that trigger the body’s natural healing response to kick-start the production of new collagen for longer-term lifting and tightening.*
For the body, HIFU can sculpt, tighten and provide permanent fat reduction within specifically targeted stubborn pockets of fat (such as love handles and muffin tops).* The technology delivers a 24-line matrix of focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm. The high frequency of the ultrasound waves heats the treatment area to eliminate targeted fat cells and boost collagen production for firmer, tighter skin.* The fat cells are flushed from the body naturally over a period of around 3 months. There is absolutely no damage to surrounding skin or tissue and this walk-in walk-out procedure has no downtime at all.
HIFU stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound – a next-generation treatment that helps to lift, firm and tighten skin for the face and body. It can also be used to target stubborn areas of excess body fat. With advanced technology from 3D, the treatment delivers thermal energy to targeted areas beneath the skin’s surface. This prompts the body’s healing response including the formation of new collagen without causing any damage to surrounding skin and tissues.*
You’ll have an in-depth, one-to-one consultation with your practitioner before any treatment commences to make sure it’s exactly right for you. We’ll use a hand-held device to deliver HIFU quickly and safely.
Not at all – most of our clients find it completely manageable. You’ll feel a warm, tingling sensation throughout the treatment as the energy is delivered and we’ll check regularly that this doesn’t become too uncomfortable.
There is no downtime at all which makes HIFU a great alternative to surgery. You might look a little flushed and red after the treatment but this usually passes within a couple of hours. Mild swelling and tenderness can also occur, but again these are temporary side effects.*
