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.
*Results may vary. VIVO Clinic cannot guarantee specific results.
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 tightened during conventional facelift surgery. Unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no time off work.
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|

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)
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.
