HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is the latest non-surgical technology. Known within in the industry as the “No Knife Facelift”
HIFU uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to heat targeted areas, creating a coagulating effect to the deeper layers of the skin, these are the layers a surgeon would usually pull and tighten in a surgical facelift procedure, but without the risks associated with surgery.
Acoustic energy is applied to the area you’d like to improve, this reaches the subcutaneous layer. The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different depths followed by a wound healing response resulting in new collagen, therefore, providing a longer-term tightening of the skin.
HiFU targets individual brow lifting, jowl line lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction, and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. The highly focussed acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at three different selected depths. Following this, a wound healing response results in the formation of SMAS tightening and new collagen, thus providing a longer-term tightening of the skin.
Generally, a noticeable improvement in the clients facial contouring and fine lines and wrinkles will be reportedly seen up to six weeks post-treatment. There is no downtime associated with this non-invasive procedure.

HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin, contracting the facial layer and stimulating the creation of new collagen in the area. HIFU is highly effective in toning and lifting the skin and muscles of the face.
Some clients do enjoy immediate initial effects; however, the ultimate lifting and toning results will take place over the following 2 to 6 months. During this time, tired collagen is replaced with new collagen that has a higher level of elasticity. As the collagen-building process continues, you may see further improvements up to 6 months after the procedure.
