HIFU. Skin tightening and non-surgical facelift
HIFU, which stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a highly effective non-surgical treatment that tightens, sculpts, and firms the skin. Perfect as a minimally-invasive solution against sagging, ageing skin.
HIFU has been specifically designed to bypass the epidermis (outer skin layer) and supply targeted energy deep into underlying tissue. This allows us to treat the lower layers without harming or burning the skin’s surface. The ultrasound energy used in HIFU penetrates far down to reach the deep muscle layer known as the SMAS layer – this is the same layer that is pulled tight during a surgical facelift. The heat created in the tissue by the ultrasound creates a contraction of the muscle fibres, resulting in the tightening effect. The heat also triggers collagen production which creates volume and plumps out wrinkles on the surface. HIFU is an advanced technology, and the energy waves are calibrated to be delivered at precise and controlled depth and temperatures. This ensures client safety, and amazing results.
HIFU is extremely effective, however some clients may experience a small amount of discomfort during their treatment, depending on the depth that the energy is delivered and to which area. Expect to feel a warm, tingling or prickling sensation for the most part, which ceases upon the completion of the session. Following treatment, you can safely resume normal activities immediately. The area may show mild redness and feel slightly tender to the touch in the hours following your treatment.
Individuals prone to keloid scarring, cystic acne, or who have electrical/metal implants (in the treatment area) might not be suitable. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, we don’t recommend HIFU.
You may begin to see results 4-6 weeks following your treatment, as this is generally how long collagen production requires to begin. Your results will continue to accumulate over a 3 month period as collagen fibres continue to form. We encourage a course of multiple treatments to see dramatic results. Following your course, maintenance treatments are often recommended every 12 months.
Soften lines and wrinkles
Firm sagging skin
Sculpt the chin and jawline
Lift eyebrows and fine lines around the eye
HIFU or High-intensity focused ultrasound is a non-surgical treatment that tightens, lifts and firms the skin. The energy from the HIFU device penetrates deep into the skin and muscle to stimulate collagen and tighten the deep muscle layers for a non-surgical facelift effect, as well as targeted spot-treatment of specific areas of the face and neck.
HIFU is ideal for:
1. Firming sagging skin
2. Lifting the eyebrows
3. Reducing nasolabial folds
4. Softening lines and wrinkles
5. Reducing jowls and sagging skin under the chin

Unsure of the right treatment for you?
Get your skin analysed with the SkinX.
While we can make fairly accurate judgements based on what we see, we won’t know what’s happening underneath the skin without the help of a skin analysis device. This technology allow us to take a look deep down below the surface to discover underlying issues before they occur.
We can examine your skin sebun and bacterial content, detect wrinkles that haven’t appeared yet, underlying inflammation, and more.
With a skin analysis, we can develop a personal skin treatment plan that will provide the best long-term skin health possible, and also track the results with you over time, so you can see first hand the progress we make on your skin.
