HIFU, or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a revolutionary treatment for a non-surgical approach to a traditional surgical facelift.
It works by penetrating energy into the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System- the muscular system of the face, this is the same system that is manipulated during a surgical facelift, the deep dermis, and subcutaneous fibrous tissue.
Energy is transmitted into these layers causing controlled trauma. This then causes contraction and tightening of the muscular layer, leading to repair, and immediate collagen stimulation, rejuvenating, firming, and plumping the skin.
Originally, HIFU was used for treating tumours, then it was known for Brow Lifts, now it’s been improved to reduce lines and wrinkles all over the face, upper chest, neckline and jawline.

We usually begin HIFU facial rejuvenation by cleansing the chosen area of the face and applying an ultrasound gel. Then, they use a handheld device that emits the ultrasound waves in short bursts.
Some people feel mild discomfort during the treatment, and some have pain or ache afterward.

I had heard really good things about the HIFU facial, I'd seen it advertised in magazine articles!
I weighed up the surgical vs. non-surgical versions of a facelift and I'm so happy I opted for the non-surgical HIFU. I was told beforehand it can be an uncomfortable treatment, and it was, but maybe 20 mins post-treatment I was fine, which would not be the case if I opted for surgical! I had a little tenderness for about 3 days, but only when I touched my face, but completely manageable. The results are fantastic! The staff were great! I was a little nervous before the treatment started but I didn't need to be!
I'm really now really intrigued about the HIFU for body as well now!
