HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that utilises ultrasound technology to target specific layers of the dermis. Collagen is a vital protein in the human body, making up a significant portion of the skin’s structure. As people age, collagen production decreases, leading to sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity.

Treatment Process

  • Focused Ultrasound Energy: HIFU delivers focused ultrasound energy to precise depths within the skin without causing damage to the skin’s surface.
  • Heat: This focused energy generates heat, which stimulates tissue remodelling and triggers the production of new collagen.
  • Reduced Fat: HIFU can also reduce fat and help reduce cellulite

Areas of Use

HIFU can be used for various cosmetic purposes, including:

  • Lifting and tightening loose skin
  • Jowl lifts and jawline contouring
  • Decreasing neck lines and wrinkles
  • Addressing drooping eyebrows and eyelids
  • Reducing the appearance of a double chin
  • *Body contouring for areas such as the axilla (armpits), chest, abdomen, back, arms, flanks, thighs, lower legs, and ankles, reducing fatty deposits.

Expected Results

  • HIFU treatment aims to rejuvenate the skin naturally.
  • Results include reduced fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin laxity, less fat and less cellulite, and a more youthful appearance.
  • Some immediate results may be noticeable, but the full benefits become apparent over 2-3 months as collagen regeneration continues.

 Procedure Overview

  • Procedure Time: The duration of HIFU treatments typically ranges from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
  • Downtime Required: After the treatment, some redness may occur, but this usually subsides within a few hours.
  • Results Duration: Multiple treatments (usually 2 or more) may be required 1 to 3 months apart for optimal results. The effects can last for 6-12 months or longer, but maintenance treatments may be necessary to sustain the outcome, usually annually.
  • Cost of Treatment: From $550 – $3000

HIFU is considered a non-invasive procedure, however, it’s essential to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine if HIFU is suitable for your specific needs and expectations.
