HIFU- FACE Lift
HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound. It is an innovative, painless and non-invasive way to reduce wrinkles and provide skin lifting that lasts up to two years and is skin-friendly. Additional applications include face and brow lifting, tightening of the connective tissue and cellulite treatment. Highly concentrated ultrasound waves penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production.
HIFU- High Intensity Focused Ultrasound.
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 surgical facelifts .
The key advantages of this treatment are:
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- No cuts to the skin
- No recovery time
- Noticeable results after just one treatment
- Clinically proven
HIFU lifts and tones the face, neck and eyes resulting in a dramatic yet natural uplift, without needing any surgery, with longstanding results. Though other non-invasive treatments have had promising results, the ability to target multiple layers beneath the skin are what sets HIFU apart. 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.

How does Ultracel Q+ works?
ULTRAcel combines three highly effective technologies in a single system that can be used in combination or as standalone treatments:
Grid Fractional Radio-Frequency (GFR)
The grid fractional radio frequency delivers thermal energy promoting collagen growth and elastin production resulting in a healthy and tighter looking skin.
Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedling (FRM)
The radio frequency microneedling device delivers heat, which affects collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. This causes deep structures of the skin to tighten, and over time, new and remodelled collagen is produced.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
Ultrasound waves are beamed to a targeted depth of the skin where thermal heat energy treatment stimulates the growth of new healthy collagen for prolonged and more intensive tightening.

HIFU Treatment Process
HIFU treatment is painless, as the ultrasonic waves do not affect the surface layers of the skin.
After a thorough consultation with the doctor and analysis of the level of the skin laxity and suitability for the treatment and the patient is ready to go ahead, a special gel will be applied to the specified area.
The treatment will directly transfer the ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the treated area to trigger collagen renewal to give a tighter skin. Macro-focused cartridges transfer an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into to the tissue under the skin in the treated area, which will induce contractions as well as natural disposal of stubborn fat cells for contouring purposes.
During the HIFU treatment, the patient may notice a slight prickling sensation. Once the procedure is complete, the gel will be removed and SPF should be applied.
One session of HIFU treatment will deliver visible effects in lifting and tightening. It will also create new collagen which will help the skin to maintain its youthful glow with the results lasting up to 12-16 months
This treatment usually takes between 20-40 minutes and has no downtime and no side effects, nevertheless some patients could have slight redness and rarely slight swelling for the initial 2 hours after the treatment.
The treatment will cause no disturbance to the patient’s daily routine and patients can apply make up or facial moisturiser immediately after the treatment if they wish to do so.
Area of treatment
How soon will i see results ?
After as little as one session with HIFU therapy, the patient can enjoy a refreshed, lifted, and more youthful appearance immediately after the treatment.
The results will improve with time, as the skin’s Sculptra continues for a few months after the treatment.
In some cases, we combine other treatments with HIFU, depending on the individual cases, condition of the skin and other patients concerns to deliver the best possible desired results.
