What is involved in the Deep Lifting Facial?
The Signature Deep Lifting treatment is one of our Focus 15 Facials, aiming to deliver the most fantastic results. Focussing on only the most important areas, we can create dramatic results within a small time slot. This facial includes the medical grade HIFU Ultherapy Non-Surgical Facelift technology working on penetrating the deepest layers of the skin.
How does the HIFU technology work?
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound. This technology harnesses the power of ultrasound to target specific layers of tissue beneath the skin’s surface. As a result of this, the body’s natural regenerative processes is stimulated.
HIFU emits high-frequency ultrasound waves deep into the skin, reaching the SMAS layer. Bypassing the outer layers of the skin means that you can gain effective results without causing any damage to the surface. As the ultrasound energy reaches its designated depth, it generates controlled, thermal heat. In turn, this thermal energy kickstarts the production of collagen, the essential protein responsible for skins elasticity and firmness.
Over time, the newly produced collagen begins to lift and tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.

There is no better treatment for dramatically lifting and changing the deep structure of the skin than HIFU, so 15 minutes focussing on a particular area will give remarkable non-surgical results!— Rachel
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!— Jane
What’s the difference between the Focus 15 Facials?
The idea of our Focus 15 Facials is to treat specific areas of concern whilst saving time and money for the client. We do recommend that you concentrate on one specific area for up to 6 treatments, this will give you the maximum possible results. Each Focus 15 Facial concentrates on a single aspect of concern, for example, wrinkles, redness, pigmentation etc.
Do I need to maintain the results?
Clients 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.
Is HIFU safe?
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.
Will I see results straight away?
20% of your overall result will be seen immediately with the remaining 80% being seen within 6 months of treatment.
Are there any side effects?
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.
Does it hurt?
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.
Is there any age restrictions?
We have age restrictions on all of our treatments at SKIN lounge due safety reasons and the body constantly changing. HIFU requires a minimum age of 18 years old.
