HIFU Facial Treatment
There’s a reason why HIFU is known as the non-surgical facelift. It gives instant skin tightening with neck and jawline lifting and improves and firms skin tone. It’s one of the most effective non-invasive anti-ageing treatments there is – and a great natural alternative to surgery, fillers and injections.
How does HIFU work?
The micro-energy in High Intensity Focused Ultrasound [HIFU] improves skin tone. It uses focused energy to penetrate to varying depths and destroy subcutaneous fatty tissue.
That stubborn tissue reacts to the heat (up to 75 degrees) and generates an instant and natural inflammatory response, naturally disposing of stored energy from the fat cells and metabolising it as energy.
New collagen and elastin is produced which tightens the skin instantly, and also provides long-term effects. HIFU is non-invasive, has no negative side effects and works with your own body’s natural processes.
How long does HIFU Last?
Some people see an immediate effect, and others notice results between 2-12 weeks – it all depends on the condition of your skin, your hydration levels, and your nutrition.
The effects will last as long as it takes for you to naturally age, but the younger the skin the longer the results will last. For skin aged over 50 years, the results will last 12- 18 months.

HIFU Face [FAQs]
HIFU face treatments is also known as a ‘non-surgical facelift’. It lifts, tightens and firms the skin. You can choose to have a half-facelift (lower face, chin, jawline and cheeks) or a full one (neck, under the chin, jawline, cheeks, eyes and forehead).
HIFU is an excellent non-surgical treatment for tightening the skin on the face, neck and jawline to give an instant ‘facelift’ effect. It lifts and improves skin tone and is one of the most effective, non-invasive anti-ageing treatments there is. It’s a fantastic alternative to surgery, wrinkle relaxing injections and fillers.
I believe that micro-needling and HIFU are the best pro-ageing facial rejuvenation treatments you can have.
Micro-needling stimulates collagen production and injects active nutrient serums into the lower layers of the skin to tighten and improve its appearance. Then HIFU goes one step further – it uses focused energy to improve skin tone, produce new collagen and elastin and tighten the skin instantly.
They’ll last for as long as it takes for your skin to naturally age. Your skin won’t start to sag, but you may be more conscious of it because you’ll have become used to seeing firmer, younger looking skin!
It all depends on the area and quality of the skin. For the very best results, I recommend three treatments over a 12-week period and then a 12-week rest period. You can then have a further three treatments (over 12 weeks) if you want to.
To maintain the effects after that, I recommend a HIFU treatment every 12 months.
This isn’t something I would recommend. It can be uncomfortable and after a 30-minute treatment, tolerance levels are likely to drop so the second treatment area may not get the energy it needs.
