HIFU – The Latest In Non-Surgical Skin Tightening!
What Is HIFU?
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) uses ultrasound waves to create a wound at a dermal level without affecting the top few layers of skin. This advanced treatment works to lift, tighten and knock years off the complexion, without the need for invasive surgery.
How Does HIFU Work?
HIFU directly delivers heat energy to skin and subcutaneous tissue that can stimulate and renew the skin’s collagen, improving the texture and reducing sagging of the skin. HIFU penetrates at deeper depths and higher temperatures than Radio Frequency, treating beyond the dermis, where skin structure starts to weaken. It literally achieves the results of a facelift without any invasive surgery or injections with no downtime.
A facelift without the surgery and downtime… YES PLEASE!!!!
HIFU Technology Explained:
HIFU heats the tissue at the target point to 65-75 degrees to create spaced wounds and cellular friction to promote a wound healing response to stimulate rapid collagen production, healing and immediate contraction of the tissue.
HIFU is able to penetrate to the SMAS which is the area of muscle that is tightened during a surgical face lift!
How Deep Does HIFU Penetrate?
HIFU penetrates deeper than previous treatments including laser, IPL, RF and Fractional laser as can be seen in the below diagram:

Is HIFU Harmful?
HIFU is not harmful when passing through human tissue, no risk of infection or bleeding as it is a non-surgical method of tightening the skin.
Is HIFU Painful?
HIFU is a non-invasive procedure, no needles are used and there is no downtime.
You may feel a little pin prick sensation throughout the treatment as the heat passes through the hand piece. This sensation is actually the collagen fibres tightening.

What Depth Is The HIFU Able To Reach?
4.5mm penetrates the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer. This is the area located between the muscle and the fat, which is the same area tightened during a surgical facelift
3mm penetrates to the Deep Dermis
2mm penetrates in between the Papillary Dermis
1.5mm penetrates the Superficial Dermis
HIFU works to tighten the same muscles that are tightened during an actual facelift. HIFU increases elasticity of skin, sagging of skin, and smooths the skin texture. There is an initial tightening of the skin which gives you an immediate refreshed look with firmer and lifted skin texture. Once the collagen induction process has begun and has had a chance to kick in (4-6 weeks post treatment) a dramatic visible improvement in facial contouring and visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles will be evident. Results continuously improve up to 6 months down the track while your skin cells are repairing and regenerating.
What can I expect post treatment?
- We recommend no sun exposure for 24-48 hours after the treatment. If you need to be in the sun then a mineral SPF must be applied.
- The skin may feel tender immediately post procedure which can last up a few weeks
- The treated area may be flush, red and feel tingly
- Bruising and numbness in the treated area may occur which will subside
- No strenuous activity for 48 hours
- Avoid alcohol for 48 hours
How many sessions will I need?
HIFU is an amazing new technology that delivers dramatic results in as little as one – three sessions. We recommend having a 5 week break in between HIFU sessions.
Results will last 1-3 years without maintenance.
