HIFU in short for high intensity focused ultrasound is a medical ultrasound that delivers precise concentrated ultrasound energy to the face and neck for non-surgical lifting and tightening of the skin. HIFU is considered one of the most comfortable, (almost painless!) non-surgical treatment options for skin tightening and can also melt fats while tightening the area. It is the perfect way to achieve a more lifted, V shaped, youthful look!
HIFU is ideal for patients with mild to moderate skin sagging and for patients with excess facial fats.

HOW DOES HIFU WORK?
HIFU employs ultrasound energy to target different depths of 1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm.
At 1.5mm deep
HIFU targets melanin and reduces pigmentation.
At 3.5mm deep
HIFU targets the deep dermis layer to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This tightens the skin.
At 4.5mm deep
Stimulation and tightening of the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) provides the lifting.
We also have other handpieces to target other regions of the body such as the double chin, tummy, arms and inner thighs.
HOW DOES HIFU FEEL LIKE? IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
HIFU is extremely comfortable and takes approximately 60 minutes. Some patients may experience mild flushing post treatment which subside within a few hours. Otherwise it is an extremely safe treatment with zero downtime because the energy targets only tissue below the skin surface and there is no damage to upper layers of the skin.
