HIFU (high Intensity Focused Ultrasound) HIFU (also known as Ultherapy) is the next generation in advanced non-surgical facial rejuvenation with deeper penetration, real and lasting results with no damage to the skin surface. It is NOT like Laser, Fraxel, Radio Frequency, IPL, Needling, Surgery or any other skin rejuvenation procedure

There is no down time.

The closest thing to a mini facelift without surgery is here!  Introducing the high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) facelift.

Look and feel 5 – 10 years younger the HIFU treatment works by stimulating the SMAS layer (layer between the skin and muscle that provides lift), this provides both a wound contraction in the muscle, and new collagen synthesis, which over the next 4 – 6 weeks naturally uplifts and firms the skin.

This treatment :

  • Lifts and tightens eyebrows, also improving sagging eyelids,
  • Reduces frown lines
  • Lifts and firms the chin/jaw line area
  • Tightens loose skin on the neck and crepe-y skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles, open pores
  • Minor redness and dryness
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Other ‘loose skin’ areas can be treated eg; Mummy tummy, tuck shop lady arms, stretch marks can look significantly improved.

This is how a HIFU treatment works

The SMAS is the connective tissue of the face that drops with age. The full name is Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS). When the SMAS becomes loose and drops with age, it creates laxity along the lower face and jawline creating jowls, marionette lines. HIFU penetrates deeper than previous techniques.

Why the HIFU Uplift?

It is the only non-surgical treatment that can penetrate down to the SMAS layer. HIFU system concentrates multiple intersecting beams of ultrasound on the SMAS area. Each individual beam passes through the upper tissue to the focal point, where the beams converge, it heats up the SMAS, which should be rich in collagen but as we age it depletes. When this tissue is intensively warmed up, collagen is produced to firm up loose skin. As the SMAS heals it generates a natural lifted tighter look. Think of it as an intensive weight training session for your face, as it is very similar to the body building ‘tear and repair’ muscle building process.

It’s significantly cheaper than surgery

There’s next to no downtime. Your face may be tender and may have some redness and slight swelling for a couple of days post procedure. That is all.  You can go about your daily routine, wear make up

How do I achieve the best results from a HIFU treatment?

Before Treatment:
Hopefully you have been having regular facials and your skin will be in good shape anyway, however to gain best HIFU results. We recommend a Microdermabrasion and LED treatment 1 week before your HIFU appointment to ensure a clean debris free skin.

Internal recovery:
We recommend a high quality, clean protein powder smoothie, to help build and repair your SMAS muscle layer, just as you would if you had a personal trainer for your body.  Also a Collagen supplement helps promote and increase the components of the dermal matrix. Before and after your treatment.

External recovery:
We recommend the use of a combination of high quality vitamin A and peptides topical products.  Just Body has an approved package with a special pricing for HIFU clients.

Peptides are mini proteins (amino acids). In the right combination, peptides work at triggering growth factors to stimulate fibroblast activity essential for collagen production (and the youthful glow in our skin)
