High Intensity Focused Ultrasound also known ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’ has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for face and neck and is a revolutionary alternative to cosmetic facelifts that require going under the knife.
The key advantages of this treatment are:
30-90 minutes (approx)
2-3 days Estimated
Mild redness, swelling & tenderness
HIFU lifts and tones the face, neck and eyes resulting in a dramatic yet natural uplift, without surgery, with longstanding results the treatment is rapidly gaining popularity in the London, UK. Though other non-invasive treatments have had promising results, the ability to target multiple layers beneath the skin are what sets HIFU apart. Unlike surgery, high-intensity focused ultrasound is safe, affordable and doesn’t require you to have downtime following the treatment.
The treatment is able to target the deep structural layers of the skin. HIFU uses ultrasound energy to apply heat to specific depths of the skin which boosts the body’s healing responses, this naturally increases the levels of collagen in the tissues, helping to reduce the sign of ageing, for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
In addition to your treatment time all procedures include 15-minute consultation and 15-minutes skin analysis and marking and a 10-minute patch testBook a FREE Consultation
At our London clinic, the ultrasonic frequencies emitted from our advanced technology will pass through the dermis, converging up to 4.5mm beneath the skin. At the point of convergence, a node of thermal energy causes the muscles to contract which tightens the skin and facilitates the production of elastin and collagen fibres*.
HIFU is suitable for someone who is over the age of 30 and has notices that the skin on their face or neck has start to show signs of ageing. The stimulated collagen production will help lift and tighten the treated area to help delay the ageing process.
Most people do not report pain. There can be slight aching over bony areas or a warm sensation in the skin during treatment.
One of the benefits of this treatment is that there is no downtime. Most people return to normal activities right away.
There may be slight redness to the treated area following the session. At most patients may feel tingling and tenderness to the touch after the treatment.
All potential side effects will be discussed by the practitioner prior to treatment.
Often HIFU is used alongside other treatments to enhance results. For a lifting effect it is often used with Threadlift to give an optimum lift.*
