What is HIFU?
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a noninvasive treatment for facial aging. It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen (for structure and elasticity), which results in firmer, tighter skin.
A HIFU facial emits ultrasound waves to create heat at a deep level in the skin which in turn damages targeted skin cells, causing the body to try and repair them. The body then produces collagen to aid in cell regrowth. As HIFU focuses on a specific tissue site below the skin's surface, there is no damage in the upper layers of the skin.
Each session typically lasts 30-90 minutes - one to six sessions may be required depending on the results clients want to achieve. HIFU facials do not require any preparation and when a session is over, there is no recovery time.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does HIFU work?
HIFU delivers focused ultrasound energy to specific depths within the skin, creating thermal coagulation points. This encourages collagen production and tissue rejuvenation, resulting in skin tightening and lifting.
Is there any downtime after HIFU treatment?
There is typically little to no downtime with HIFU. Clients can usually resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
How long does it take to see results with HIFU?
Most people begin to notice improvements within a few weeks after the treatment, with continuing enhancements over the course of several months as collagen production increases.
How long do the effects of HIFU last?
HIFU can last up to 1-2 years or even longer, depending on factors such as individual aging and skincare routines.
Are there any side effects or risks associated with HIFU?
HIFU is generally considered safe, with minimal side effects. Some individuals may experience temporary redness, swelling, or tenderness, but these effects are usually mild and short-lived.
