High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
HIFU FACIAL TREATMENTS
HIFU is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the world. This revolutionary treatment is the only FDA approved treatment specifically targeting lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. It is clinically proven to get results only previously attainable through surgery or invasive procedures such as botox.
HIFU harnesses the power of ultrasound to safely lift and tighten the skin. Unlike similar treatments such as laser or radio frequency, the high intensity focused ultra sound can penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting skin breakdown at its foundation layer, where structural weakening starts.
Our technician works closely with each client to understand exactly what results they are looking to achieve from the treatment. This allows us to tailor-make a treatment course specifically for each individual, helping to obtain the best results.

The Answers You Need
IS HIFU SAFE?
The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 1,000000 treatments worldwide. HIFU is is the only FDA cleared non-surgical facelift treatment available.Ultrasound energy itself has been used safely in all aspects of the medical field for over 50 years.
DOES IT HURT?
Patients can experience momentary discomfort during the procedure whilst the ultrasound energy is being deposited into the skin. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
WILL I NEED TO TAKE TIME OFF?
With the HIFU treatment there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
After your Treatment, you may notice some initial positive effects such as lifting and toning, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR HIFU?
A good candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you're a good candidate is to phone for a telephone consultation.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
