What is a HiFu ultrasound facelift?
The HIFU Facelift or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound also known ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’ has become a highly popular lifting treatments for face and neck and is an effective alternative to cosmetic face lifts that require invasive surgery.
During the procedure, focused ultrasound energy is used to lift the muscles and tighten the skin. The ultrasound generates low levels of heat in the targeted treatment area. Results can be seen from the first treatment and can last between 2 to 4 years.
HIFU stimulates the creation of collagen that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. This is the latest and most advanced level of non-surgical technology available. HIFU can be combined with other treatments which we can recommend through our free consultation.
HIFU technology is completely safe and has been used in medicine for decades. It works by contracting and shortening muscle fibres, which cause the lifting and tightening effect.

Why choose HIFU over surgery?
The traditional facelift is a cosmetic procedure where a surgeon alters the appearance of patients’ faces.
The aim is to make a face look younger by adjusting and removing parts of the skin and muscle tissue in the face and neck.
Before the procedure starts, the patient is placed under general anaesthetic to numb the pain that is often part of the procedure.
In spite of recent developments in that field, people still “go under the knife” because its results are relatively “permanent.”
That is despite the risks involved in and the possibility of sustaining medical complications and scars that take longer to heal.
Traditional facelifts are also very expensive, and the results are not always natural.
