HIFU Facelift

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. No other technology can target these layers deep within the skin in a non-invasive procedure. SMAS is the same layer which is tightened during conventional facelift surgery. Unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.

The Science

HIFU uses multiple beams of ultrasound. Individually the beams do not affect the tissue. However, their area of convergence under the skin 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

Collagen proteins begin to lose their integrity with age, which causes frown lines, crow’s feet, and a drooping neck. Tightening the SMAS layer and replenishing collagen 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:

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)
