HIFU High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Face-Lift
How does HIFU High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Work?
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This involves emitting multiple ultrasound beams into the skin. These beams penetrate the skin at specific depths and form tiny and invisible ‘micro-holes’ within the skin. As a result of these micro-holes, collagen fibres are encouraged to repair and strengthen, giving the skin a smoother and tighter appearance. Collagen production in the skin declines as we get older, so this treatment works to reduce signs of ageing such as wrinkles, crow’s feet and loose skin, in a natural way without having to have surgery.
Why choose HIFU?
HIFU can deliver similar results to that of surgical procedures without having to put your body at risk or take time off to recover.
What does HIFU feel like?

“… Monique treated my lower and upper face. I could definitely feel the ultrasound working, it wasn’t painful, but I could feel a sort of mild prickling, tingling with each pulse of the machine ….”

How often do I need HIFU?
There are different intensities of HIFU that can be used to suit different types of skin and different areas on the face. HIFU can be applied for specific results such as an eye lift or jaw lift and can be applied to sections such as the upper face, lower face, décolletage and neck. Sessions last up to 60 minutes. A one off treatment can last from several months to over a year.
