what is HIFU?

HIFU is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. The treatment uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, cheek, under the chin and on the neck, and also smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

can it replace a facelift?

HIFU treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. However, it’s a great alternative, especially for those not ready or don’t want the associated risks surgical procedures carry. It can also be used for clients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

what does it feel like?

The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 250,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Some clients may feel the heat being transmitted and comfort levels do vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

who is a good candidate?

A good HIFU candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, lowered and more prominent jowls, sagging under the chin and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re a suitable candidate is to consult with a practitioner.
