What is HIFU?
HIFU stands for ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound’, this treatment can target various depths of the body’s tissue for skin tightening, skin lifting and body contouring. Entirely non-invasive, HIFU works by targeting deep layers in the skin – it boosts new collagen production and collagen regeneration right at the source. It is sometimes called the ‘Lunchtime Face Lift’ as the treatment is quick, very tolerable and has no downtime.
As we age collagen production slows down. Our face, neck and décolletage start to lose tone and elasticity and we often notice our skin becoming looser or start to sag. This can cause particular concern around the jawline or jowls, the neck and brow area; ageing us beyond our years.
Our HIFU treatment uses Ultrasound energy which is able to target the deep structural layers of the skin. By targeting heat at specific depths we can kick start the body’s healing response, this naturally increases the levels of collagen in the tissues. As collagen increases, this leads to a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin. Helping to reduce the signs of ageing, for a younger, more refreshed appearance.*
HIFU is able to reach tissues that other anti-ageing treatments can’t affect. This makes HIFU a very popular alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments such as thread lifts or injectable toxins and fillers.
If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment to tackle the signs of ageing? Are you concerned about drooping jowls, prominent nose to mouth lines or a heavy brow? Our non-surgical face lift treatment using the latest HIFU ultrasound technology could be the perfect treatment for you.

What is HIFU treatment for face?
HIFU treatment for the face works as a non-invasive facelift. It tightens the skin, irons out wrinkles, shrinks pores, and targets the ‘V’ line formation and Jowell lines. HIFU improves overall skin tone, pores, brightness and elasticity.
The HIFU treatment targets the upper dermis 1.5mm, lower dermis 3.00mm and most importantly the SMAS 4.5mm.
The SMAS is the layer that sits between the muscle and the fat, the actual area a plastic or cosmetic surgeon would pull and tighten under the knife. HIFU targets this layer without any surgical incisions, giving the patient a no-downtime facelift. Which means you can gain excellent results without any risks associated with surgery. Treatments are fast and results are seen immediately! This is why the HIFU treatment is known as the ‘lunch time face lift’.
With our HIFU device we can even treat around the eyes, thanks to the MF2 slim cartridge, which allows us to treat your delicate eye area.
After your HIFU Treatment, you may see some initial effect, 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.
Good effective skin care is essential and monthly facials will compliment this procedure and encourage a fabulous effect.
