High intensity focus ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary alternative to a cosmetic face-lift - without the need of surgery. HIFU lifts and tones the face, neck and eyes resulting in a dramatic yet natural uplift. HIFU is said to reduce the appearance of ageing by 4 - 8 years in just one treatment.
HIFU targets deep down in the foundation layer of your skin, the same layer addressed in cosmetic surgery. Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside in, the HIFU procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, and delivers targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives.
HIFU involves penetrating ultra-sound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep dermal and sub dermal levels, which results in micro injury to that tissue. As the tissue heals, it increases collagen and as the collagen fibres organise and shorten, a tightening effect is seen on the skin.
In my 18 years of working within the beauty industry I have genuinely never seen such remarkable results with a facial treatment. Anti-ageing at its very best!
30% off your second treatment if received within 6 months of your first.
"I was excited to try HIFU but wasn't sure it would really work for me. I have lost a lot of weight, which has left me with excess loose skin along my jawline and neck. HIFU has made such a huge difference to the way I look which has had a massive boost to my confidence. To say I’m happy is a huge understatement! Have HIFU - it’s amazing!”
In most cases only one treatment is required. Additional treatments may be required to successfully treat advanced ageing. A second treatment can be performed 3 months after your first session.
Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh, young collagen after a years time following the procedure, but future touch up treatments can help keep pace with the ageing process, which varies by individual.
Yes! HIFU is the only FDA cleared non-surgical facelift treatment available. In fact it is so safe, HIFU is used medically to treat some cancers.
20% of your overall result will be seen immediately with the remaining 80% being seen within 6 months of treatment.
There may be a slight redness for up to a few hours following the treatment, and a small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
HIFU does not cause major discomfort. You may feel some discomfort, warmth or heat sensation or even a slight pain that lasts less than a few seconds and only during the pulsation cycle when ultrasound energy is being applied. The discomfort is very brief and a good sign that the collagen building process has begun.
