HIFU Belfast

Our popular HIFU Facelift treatment has come to our Clinic in Belfast!

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology has already made an impact in the medical world. Now it is making a breakthrough in the cosmetic industry. HIFU is perfect for treating frown lines, crow’s feet and sagging skin on the cheeks. In other words, this treatment reduces the signs of ageing and makes your skin look and feel tighter.

HIFU Facelift

How does HIFU work?

At VIVO Clinic in Belfast, we use HIFU to target certain depths of the skin, including the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer. This is important because no other non-invasive treatment can penetrate this deep into the skin. The only other alternative treatment to target this layer is invasive surgery. Our HIFU Facelift is cheaper than traditional surgical procedures and yields similar results. The best part is that there is no downtime, allowing you to go back to daily life immediately. So, if you want to have a face lift, but are anxious about having surgery, here at VIVO Clinic in Belfast we have the perfect solution for you!

During the HIFU Facelift, an applicator fires beams of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound into the epidermis, dermis and SMAS layer. These beams converge at precise points and produce heat. This encourages the collagen in the skin to contract and regrow, resulting in tighter and firmer skin.

You only need to have one treatment to see results. However, the extent of these varies from person to person. Results can last up to two years. However, some people may benefit from an additional top-up treatment during this time to achieve their desired results.

If you are unsure about HIFU and want more information, then book in to see one of our consultants at VIVO Clinic in Belfast. We will make sure that you have all of the information you want before making such a big decision, and will look after you if you decide to go ahead!
