Frequently Asked Questions
HIFU is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift muscle and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime.*
HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.*
HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to contract the facial layer as well as stimulate the bodyâs creation of new collagen. As a result, skin will actually begin to lift and tone over time.*
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. HIFU jump starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen.*
No. Unlike a face lift, HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it, but doesn't entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.*
HIFU is an uplift not a face lift. While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a face lift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.*
The procedure has been cleared after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years*.
A full face treatment takes 60minutes, and a partial face or brow lift treatment can take around 45minutes and neither with any downtime.*
HIFU is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.*
A suitable candidate is someone who is aged 30+ who has noticed that the skin on their face or neck has become more lax and wishes to lift and tighten the relevant area. For patients in their 30s it is typically used to stimulate collagen production and hence help delay the ageing process. Patients in their 40s and 50s are the most common age group who have this treatment. It is also suitable for those aged 60+ provided the degree of laxity is not too great. It is also for those who have had surgery in the past to prolong the effects of surgical face lifts. *
Clients may witness some initial effect, but ultimately lifting and firming will take place over approximately 3 months, as collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. As this collagen building process continues, continued improvements can appear for up to 6 months.*
Most people find results last 1-2years, although yearly touch-up treatments are recommended to stay ahead of the ageing process.*
Most people do not report pain. There can be slight aching over bony areas or a warm sensation in the skin during treatment.*
There may be slight redness following the treatment. A small amount of patients report swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch. All potential side effects will be discussed by the practitioner prior to treatment.*
