HIFU is a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure that can be used to improve facial wrinkles and skin laxity

Some patients note some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, however it is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen building process has been initiated.

Patients treated with HIFU have new collagen for a year after the procedure, which may remain its integrity for another half-a-year to a year depending on condition of the skin, age, and other factors such as lifestyle, medication etc.  Future touch-up treatments can help keep ahead of the natural ageing process, which varies with each individual.

Someone who is “relaxed” to the point of feeling or appearing less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, jowls, relaxed neck contours, skin on the body that still has laxity even when flexing.

A full face treatment is approximately 45-60 minutes, half face approximately 30 minutes. Treatment time varies with treatment area.

HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment that can target the deep foundation below the skin (which is addressed in cosmetic surgery) without actually cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment and a small percentage of clients may have some swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

Yes! What you feel during the treatment is the tiny amounts of focused ultrasound energy being deposited below the skin’s surface. It may be described as warm localised prickling.

HIFU is an “uplift” not a “facelift”. While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a great option for those not looking for a surgical facelift, or those looking to prolong the results of the effects of cosmetic surgery.

Face and Neck lifts can be coupled with PDO threads is the Ultimate Lift Package.

What to expect

Before the treatment:

  • If you are wearing makeup, we will ask you to remove it prior to the procedure.
  • We will mark the area of the treatment before the procedure. Due to the asymmetrical nature of the body, the treatment areas may slightly vary in size between the more and less dominant sides of the body.
  • The treatment is overall painless but may feel uncomfortable in some areas.

What to expect after the treatment:

  • Feeling of heat. Normal phenomenon because of focused thermal energy of HIFU under the skin.
  • Feeling of light sting or pain. Normal phenomenon, sensitivity varies between different people and different treatment areas. The feeling will fade away within few hours.
  • Feeling of skin tightening. “Deeper” cartridge targets the SMAS area and makes the skin contract, while the “Shallower” cartridge works in the dermis and stimulates the collagen synthesis.
  • Facial swelling. Normal phenomenon because of high energy in the tissue, it will disappear within 24 hours.
  • Temporary superficial redness of the skin.
