High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is advanced technology that can tighten and lift and contour areas of the face and body, reduce signs of ageing and improve skin tone in just one session.
How does it work?
HIFU delivers multiple beams of ultrasound (thermal energy) which heats the tissues beneath the surface of the skin causing contraction and tightening and the formation of new collagen and elastin.
HIFU for the face
Likened to a non-surgical face-lift, it tightens skin, irons out wrinkles and reduces pores. Areas treated include
HIFU for the body
This is perfect for body contouring; post-pregnancy, abdominal fat, bingo wings etc. Areas treated include
How many sessions are required?
Usually only one session is needed but sometimes a ‘top up’ session may be required. Results can be seen from 20 days post treatment, but improvement will continue for up to 3 months or more and can last up to 12-18 months. The results can be improved and the length of time between treatments be extended by following a good skin care programme.
Does HIFU hurt?
HIFU is not a painful procedure but some discomfort may occur as the ultrasound is emitted into the tissues, particularly if working in sensitive areas.
Is there any recovery time required?
The great thing about HIFU is that there is no downtime. You may experience some mild redness, swelling and tenderness following treatment but you can resume normal daily activities immediately.
