High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-surgical approach to lift and tighten loose or sagging skin on the neck and face. HIFU works by focusing energy to stimulate the deep layers of the skin to produce new collagen, without causing damage to the surface skin resulting in firmer, lifted and tightened skin.
With minimal downtime or discomfort, this is an alternative for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery. The results develop over the course of 2-3 months with a recommended top up every 18 months.
HIFU can also be used in other areas of the body to target specific areas of fat by delivering focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm and 7mm to destroy fat cells and tighten the skin in the area treated. The damaged cells are flushed away via our natural lymphatic system and continues for up to 3 months
