What is it?

Ageing affects us all and if you desire to revitalise and tighten skin troubled by the ravages of time, HIFU could be a fantastic solution for you. HIFU (or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound in full) is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that lifts and firms sagging skin, typically caused by the ageing process. Results are natural and there is no surgery involved. It is suitable for face and body, and can also be used for slimming and body toning.

HIFU Skin Tightening works by concentrating beams of ultrasound onto problem skin, which strengthens the underlying tissues. The procedure also stimulates your body’s own natural production of collagen, meaning that skin continues to improve for many weeks. Typical problems targeted by HIFU 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 also be extra effective when combined with other treatments, ensuring you achieve optimal results in the shortest time. As always, our doctors and skin therapists will create the best treatment plan for you 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 our skin’s second layer – the “dermis”. As we get older, our body’s production of collagen slows, causing the upper layers of skin to wrinkle and sag. In order to stimulate the production of new collagen, HIFU sends ultrasound energy to selected depths below your skin’s surface, causing small injuries to the underlying tissue. As that tissue heals, it produces new collagen that tightens your skin naturally.

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, the patient’s skin becomes firmer and more youthful as new collagen grows. Then, after each HIFU procedure, the patient’s skin will continually 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. We 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 feel a little achy right after treatment, as if you had just been to the gym or exercised, but 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. Your situation will be discussed between you and your doctor.

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.
