HIFU Facelift – High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound

HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is an advanced cosmetic technology which can significantly tighten and lift several areas of the face, reduce the signs of ageing and improve the tone of the skin in a single session, with potentially long-lasting effects*. See a list of medical research supporting the effects of cosmetic HIFU.

A revolution in non-surgical facial rejuvenation

The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive facial treatments. SMAS is the same layer which is tightening during conventional facelift surgery. Unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.

What is the S-Section?

S-Section

The Science

HIFU uses multiple beams of ultrasound. Individually the beams have no effect on the tissue. However, their area of convergence becomes a point of thermal energy. Heating the tissue below the surface causes it to contract and tighten, while also forming new collagen fibres. (see research)

HIFU

As we grow older, collagen proteins begin to lose their integrity, which is what causes things like frown lines, crow’s feet and a drooping neck. Tightening the SMAS layer and replenishing collagen and will tighten and tone the skin.

Before and After

What areas can be treated?

The procedure can be effective at treating the following areas of the face:

  • Forehead frown lines
  • Eyebrows
  • Crow’s Feet
  • Cheeks
  • Double chins
  • Sagging neck

 

How many sessions are required?

Generally, Only one or two sessions are required. Most improvement can be seen within 3-4 weeks, with further gains being reported for up to six months*.

Clients who have undergone the treatment can experience results lasting in excess of six months*. (see research)
