HIFU stands for “High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound” and is a revolutionary non invasive cosmetic technology. HIFU uses concentrated ultrasound energy to the face and neck by a handheld device. It is a non-invasive treatment that helps stimulates the cells, resulting in tissue rejuvenation and collagen production. The overall effect of the treatment is to promote tightening and lifting of the skin in these areas.
A HIFU treatment can help stimulate tissue rejuvenation and collagen production – resulting in the tightening and lifting of saggy skin. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, this can produce results akin to facial sculpting (but without the need for surgery).
Collagen production is expected to reach its optimum level at two to three months. It is during this period that a patient can already see their facial skin becoming younger-looking, healthier, softer, and supple.
HIFU key client benefits include skin tightening for a youthful appearance. Specifically HIFU can;
Lift eyebrows and tighten brows
Lift and firm cheeks/jowl area
Soften and reduce smiles lines
Reduce nasolabial folds
Reduce frown lines

Body sculpture and body contour One of the many great things about HIFU is that it carries on working, long after you’ve had your treatment. In fact, if you compared HIFU before and after results immediately after and then 1 month, 3 month and 6 months later – you’ll be delighted to see that you’ll continue to see improvements.
HIFU Side Effects
HIFU is considered a safe, effective, and non invasive procedure for tightening the facial skin. Its advantages over a surgical face lift are, there are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. There is some discomfort during the procedure and clients with a low pain threshold can take pain relief prior to the treatment.
