What is it?

Revitalise your face, neck and body with HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) – a revolutionary skin-tightening procedure that helps you to lift and smooth sagging skin without surgery. It can even be used for slimming and body toning by eliminating hard-to-shift fat with minimal fuss and risk.

HIFU Skin Tightening works by concentrating beams of ultrasound onto skin that has lost laxity, usually due to the natural ageing process. This process strengthens the underlying tissues in weakened skin while also stimulating your body’s own natural production of collagen. Subsequently, your skin continues to improve for many weeks after treatment.

Common areas that HIFU is used to target include:

  • forehead (heavy lines, eyebrow lifting)
  • eyes (under eye, crow’s feet)
  • cheek area (nasolabial folds, depressions)
  • chin (double chin, jowls)
  • jowl line (v-line forming)
  • neck and chest (wrinkles, loose skin)
  • localised fat and slimming assistance (HIFU’s focused energy waves can destroy localised fat cells).

HIFU can sometimes be even more effective when combined with other treatments, helping you to achieve optimal results in the shortest possible time. As always, our doctors and skin therapists will help you create a personalised treatment plan based on your own needs, goals and progress.

How does it work?

Our skin remains fresh, taut and supple whenever there is a high concentration of collagen and elastin in its second layer, the “dermis”. As we get older, our bodies produce less of these structural proteins, causing the upper layers of skin to gradually wrinkle and sag. In order to reverse this, HIFU sends ultrasound energy to selected depths below your skin’s surface. This causes small injuries to the underlying tissue. As that tissue heals, new collagen is produced for a gradual and natural rejuvenating effect.

We use the latest technology devices by Levura and Perfecte’me to deliver HIFU energy to the dermal tissue.  The result of this delivery process is an immediate trauma to the treatment zone which then promotes healing, immediate contraction, and collagen stimulation through fibroblast activity.

Amazingly, during HIFU treatment sessions, your skin becomes firmer. These results continue to improve as new collagen is generated.

HIFU treatments are typically used on the face, neck and chest, and sessions can range between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area. Your practitioner will be able to give you an estimate during your comprehensive, no-obligation consultation.

Body slimming:
Our advanced HIFU technology can also be used to get rid of localised fat in parts of the body, such as around the thighs or hips. In this case, the treatment blasts stubborn fat cells with controlled energy, which heats them up and safely destroys them. As the damaged fat cells are gradually expelled by the body by its natural process, the skin in the area is also tightened.

How long does the treatment take to work?

You may experience some results straight after treatment. Generally, however, results can take up to three months (12 weeks) to show, after which they will continue to improve for up to seven months post treatment. In total, results can last for over a year although every individual is different.

What is the downtime?

HIFU treatments are completely non-invasive, so there is no downtime involved. You may experience some mild achiness immediately after treatment, similar to as if you had just been to the gym. Otherwise you should be free to return to normal activities. In some cases, there may also be some minor redness, swelling and tenderness, which is temporary.

Does it hurt?

Most patients only feel minimal discomfort while the ultrasound is being delivered.


How many treatments are needed?

You should achieve excellent cosmetic results with only one session – one of the great advantages of HIFU treatment! However, depending on your goals and expectations, you may require a further treatment after six to nine months, or perhaps a little later in order to maintain results.

HIFU can also be extremely effective when combined with other treatments, as part of a custom plan. During your no-obligation consultation and free reviews, your practitioner will help you create a plan tailored especially for your own needs and goals.

Any cons?

Patients may experience skin redness for a few days after the session. Some mild swelling, tingling or tenderness may occur temporarily. Less common side effects include slight bruising and skin sensitivity.

We also offer interest free finance on treatments above £280 and on selected packages.
