HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, a revolutionary treatment in advanced cosmetic technology. Just one session can significantly tighten and lift several areas of the face, reduce the signs of ageing and improving the tone of the skin with potentially long-lasting effects.
HIFU isn’t just suitable for the face. It can help anyone hoping to shed some pounds because it helps to break up and reduce the number of fat cells in the areas being treated, including the abdomen, inner and outer thighs, hips, waist, flanks, buttocks, inner arms and even the knees.
This treatment is suitable for men and women aged 40+ who are noticing the first signs of ageing and slackness in the skin, on the face, or the areas of the body mentioned above.
HIFU involves directing powerful ultrasound energy with great precision, deep into the structural layers of the skin. The heat energy is delivered at high temperatures which stimulates the production of essential collagen fibres, made of protein, which in turn leads to long-term skin lifting and tightening.
HIFU treatment takes anything from 30-120 minutes to perform, and you’ll need one or two treatments to achieve the desired result. You might need a top-up treatment after 6 months
HIFU can be slightly uncomfortable simply because of the depth of the ultrasound, but the results are worth it. You’ll see immediate effects and the skin tightening will continue after your treatment, delivering increased visual improvements for 3-6 months.
