HIFU Skin Tightening

The science bit

What Is HIFU?

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.

Who is HIFU Skin Tightening Suitable For?

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.

What Does HIFU Treatment Involve?

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.

How Long Does HIFU Treatment Take?

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

Is There Any Discomfort?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is HIFU Safe?
HIFU targets the layer of skin between the muscle and fat without the need for any surgical incisions, so it’s very safe and effective.
What is the Recovery Time from HIFU?
HIFU has no recovery time, which means you’re safe to return to your normal activities immediately.
What Are the Side Effects of HIFU?
Very rarely you might see a small bruise and a little tenderness over the area that has been treated.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The results can last from 18 months to 2 years, depending on your lifestyle.
Are There Any Alternatives to HIFU?
HIFU can be combined with other treatments like Fractora or Micro-needling for skin texture, fillers for definition, and thread lifting for a more contoured appearance. If you have excessive loose skin we might advise you to choose a lower face lift or even body contouring surgery.
How Will I Feel?
You’ve been looking in the mirror and catching your reflection as you walk past shop windows, and you’re not happy with what you see. Sadly, you feel a lot younger than you look these days! HIFU will leave your skin looking noticeably smoother and younger, feeling firmer. When you look this good you feel great, and that’s life-changing. Feeling good about yourself can enhance your whole life.
