Pioneering HIFU facelift treatment now at VIVO Clinic Dublin
HIFU stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound. It is arguably the most advanced and effective non-surgical technology for lifting and tightening the face, and the treatment is now available at our Dublin clinic.
A technological innovation
HIFU has a long and impressive history of efficacy within the medical industry, and now the same technology is being applied to an advanced facelift treatment.
Though there are many non-surgical facelift treatments which can effectively target the top layers of skin (the superficial dermis), HIFU is unique in its ability to target focus points at multiple depths beneath the surface, including the dermis, right down the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system), which is the layer adjusted by surgeons during a traditional facelift.
Unlike surgery, a HIFU facelift is much safer and more affordable, which is why it is becoming increasingly popular in Dublin, and the rest of the UK.
In addition to your treatment time, all procedures include a 15-minute consultation, a 15-minute skin analysis and marking and a 10-minute patch test.
|Traditional Facelift (S-Section)||£199|
|Full Face, Neck & Décolletage||£399|

How it Works
The applicator uses multiple focused beams of ultrasound energy. Individually, these beams have no effect on the skin or the layers beneath it, which allows them to pass through multiple layers. When the beams converge on a targeted point, they create a nodal point of thermal energy which contracts the underlying muscle and facilitates collagen regrowth.
As a result, the face tightens, and signs of ageing are reduced*.
Before and After
What areas can be treated?
HIFU can be used to treat one or multiple areas of the face, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and sagging cheeks.
Sessions / Results
Unlike some non-invasive treatments which require a course of treatments over several months, HIFU generally only requires a single treatment.
The most noticeable results should be seen within the first 20 days following the treatment. Further improvements may be gained for up to six-months and results can last up to two years.
Results vary from person to person. Occasionally a follow-up treatment may be required depending on your responsiveness to the procedure.
