HIFU Face Lift
“I’m so pleased I decided to have HIFU, and am thrilled with the result. I didn’t want to opt for fillers or botox and really felt like my face was starting to sag. I can really notice the improvement in my cheeks and jawline, and plan to have it done again in 12 months.” Christine, 54
HIFU face lift is the latest non-surgical treatment which is becoming world renowned. High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) can both lift and tighten loose or sagging skin with no downtime and little discomfort.
HIFU is a one off treatment with the benefit expected to last one year. We recommend a yearly maintenance treatment to combat the ageing process.
How does it work?
The HIFU technology sends waves of energy to the deep support layers of the skin without causing damage to the surface. This focussed ultrasound from a handpiece, reaches a layer called the SMAS. Interestingly, the SMAS (superficial muscular layer) is the same layer which is targeted during a surgical facelift.
In contrast to surgery, there are no incisions and no downtime. It is the intense ultrasound which stimulates the growth of new collagen resulting in a lifted, firmer and toned appearance of the skin.
Does it hurt?
DOES IT HURT?
You will feel a strange sensation deep down, which is almost impossible to describe. However we encourage you to have a test patch first so you know what to expect. In some areas you will feel almost nothing and in other areas the sensation is unpleasant. This can be reduced by taking pain killers before the treatment. (not anti-inflammatory medication)
Is there any downtime?
No there are no visible side effects, you can go straight back to work immediately. No-one will be able to tell that you’ve had this treatment. Your face can be slightly pink in places, similar to after a regular facial. On rare occasions you could get a localised bruise, although this is unlikely, and can be covered with make-up. Your face may also be tender in places, for example on the jawline.
What are the results like?
Results will develop over the course of 2-3 months with some clients experiencing continued improvement for up to six months. Whilst HIFU will not be as drastic as surgical intervention, it is an exciting alternative for those clients who do not with to undergo surgery.
There is no guarantee of how good your results will be. We will take photos before the treatment and will assess your progress approx 6-8 weeks later. Some clients achieve dramatic improvements while others do not. We are unable to provide you with a guarantee as everyone’s skin is different. However if you want to improve your appearance further, we can combine HIFU with other treatments.
