Non-Surgical skin lifting has become one of the most sought after treatments and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) excels in this area in just one single session.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound

HIFU targets specific areas on the face and neck, individually; Brow Lifting, Jowl Line Lifting and Periorbital Wrinkle Reduction for overall skin tightening and rejuvenation. The highly focused acoustic energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different selected depths causing a wound healing response which results in the formation of new collagen.

The tissue at these target points is heated to 65 degrees centigrade which create spaced ‘wounds’ or cones of heat and cellular friction. The wound healing response caused by the trauma results in the formation of new collagen and SMAS tightening. The SMAS layer (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is the layer to which the muscles of the face and the soft tissues are attached.

During cosmetic surgery, a portion of this SMAS is removed and then reattached to give a longer-lasting result than the traditional skin tightening facelift. The SMAS is one of the sections of the skin treated with HIFU to give a longer-lasting tightening effect as a result of the non-surgical treatment. Improvements can be seen from eight weeks post-treatment and will continue up to six months post-treatment.


HIFU Body delivers a 24 line matrix of focussed energy at a depth of 1.3cm and 7mm. The controlled thermal effect results in the destruction of targeted fat as well as contraction of collagen in the treatment area. Great for small areas of hard stubborn fat. The high frequency of the ultrasound waves result in the rapid heating of the focal zone at 1.3cm and 7mm under the skin leaving the surface unaffected. This energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper within the skin due to the energy of the HIFU causing cellular friction. Exposing the fat cells to this high temperature causes rapid cell death, necrosis.
