High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) facelift in Essex
The HIFU facelift at VIVO Clinic Essex is an advanced cosmetic procedure designed to reduce the signs of ageing.
A facelift with a difference
The origins of HIFU stem from its success within the medical industry. In more recent years the benefits have been applied to a non-invasive cosmetic procedure.
The popularity of the treatment is attributed to both its efficacy and its endorsement by the celebrity community*.
High-intensity focused ultrasound can target multiple skin depth, from the superficial dermis, down to the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) located approximately 4.5mm beneath the surface. It is this unique ability that has made the procedure an alternative to a surgical facelift.
Surgery is expensive and carries with it the risk of complications and scarring. Conversely, HIFU is much safer, more affordable and requires no post-treatment downtime.

How it Works
Our experienced clinician at VIVO Clinic Essex will use an applicator which emits multiple high-intensity focused soundwaves. Individually the waves have no effect on the skin or surrounding tissues, which allows them to penetrate deeper than other non-invasive technologies.
The sound waves converge at a targeted point beneath the skin, creating a node of thermal energy which can tighten the muscles and stimulate collagen regrowth.

Sessions / Results
A single session is generally all that is required. The number of sessions required can vary depending on your responsiveness to the procedure.
