Face HIFU is a non-surgical facelift treatment using high intensity focussed ultrasound to both lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and face without any downtime.
HIFU is the latest powerful treatment for skin lifting & targeted fat reduction using the most up-to-date, clinically proven technology.
Face HIFU focuses energy to stimulate the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the skin surface. The treatment stimulates the growth of new collagen resulting in a lifted, firmed and toned appearance of the skin.
What to expect
Results will develop over the course of 2 - 3 months with some clients experiencing continued improvement for up to 6 months. HIFU is a great alternative for people who do not want to undergo surgery.

It is also highly effective on loose skin on the neck areas and brings definition to the face and jawline.
How long until I see the results of HIFU Face?
Clients may see some initial results straight after the treatments, but the ultimate firming and lifting effect will take place over 2 - 3 months, as collagen is renewed and replaced with stronger with new stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, improvements can continue to appear upto 6 months following the treatment.
How long do treatment results last?
The firming benefits achieved following treatment should last over one year.
How many treatment will I need?
HIFU face is a one off treatment with repeat treatments recommended every 12 - 18 months.
Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for around an hour following the procedure, and a low percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
