Before the procedure, your practitioner will conduct a thorough consultation to understand your skin concerns and treatment goals. They will examine your skin and discuss your medical history to ensure you're a suitable candidate for the treatment. This is an excellent time for you to ask any questions and express any concerns you might have.


Although Ultherapy & HIFU treatments are usually well-tolerated, some individuals may feel a bit of discomfort during their procedure. To address this issue, your practitioner may apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure your comfort before starting the procedure.


Using a handheld device, the practitioner delivers targeted ultrasound energy to the treatment area, penetrating the skin to stimulate collagen production. The treatment usually lasts 60-90 minutes, depending on the area to be treated.


Following the procedure, you can immediately resume your normal daily activities. You may experience slight redness, swelling, or tingling, but these side effects should subside within a few hours. Your practitioner will provide detailed aftercare instructions to help you achieve the best results.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also known as HIFU treatment, is an innovative, noninvasive skin tightening procedure that uses ultrasound waves to target the deeper layers of the skin. This procedure works by delivering focused ultrasound energy below the skin’s surface, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin firmness. This results in tighter, firmer skin and effectively treats skin laxity, sagging skin, and enhances overall skin tightening.

A HIFU facial treatment can be performed on seven different facial areas. These include the forehead, eye area, cheeks, mouth area, jawline, neck, and even the décolletage. The versatility of HIFU treatments makes them an effective solution for addressing moderate skin laxity and improving skin texture in various facial areas.

A surgical facelift is an invasive procedure involving cutting and repositioning the skin and underlying tissues to create a youthful appearance. On the other hand, Ultherapy and HIFU treatments are non-surgical alternatives that use ultrasound techniques to stimulate collagen production. These treatments can achieve skin tightening and facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery or recovery time.

Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The ultrasound energy targets precise depths beneath the skin’s surface, promoting new collagen and elastin growth. The increase in collagen and elastin improves skin laxity, leading to a tightening effect and a more youthful appearance.

Following Ultherapy treatment, patients often report seeing noticeable results in skin tightening and rejuvenation. The skin may appear firmer, and there may be improvements in skin tone. The full effect of the treatment usually becomes apparent over 2-3 months as new collagen and elastin production increases. These effects can last up to two years, depending on individual skin conditions and the ageing process.

One of the significant advantages of Ultherapy and HIFU treatments is their non-invasive nature, which results in minimal recovery time. Following the procedure, most patients can return to their everyday activities without delay. Though minor redness or swelling in the treatment area may occur, it generally subsides within a few hours.

Generally, noticeable results can be achieved with just one treatment of Ultherapy or HIFU. However, additional treatments may be necessary for optimum results depending on the degree of skin laxity and the body’s response to ultrasound energy. This can be discussed during your initial consultation, where a customised treatment plan will be developed.

No, the HIFU facial treatment is a non-surgical procedure. Unlike cosmetic surgery, HIFU treatments target the upper and lower face layers with ultrasound waves, stimulating collagen production without any incisions or surgery. This makes it a great alternative for those seeking facial rejuvenation without the downtime associated with surgical procedures.

Ultherapy is a cutting-edge aesthetic treatment that utilizes ultrasound technology to invigorate the production of collagen and reinforce skin tightness. Compared to alternative treatments, it stands out While there are other nonsurgical skin tightening procedures, such as laser treatments, Ultherapy’s ability to utilize ultrasound imaging allows the treatment to be directed precisely where it’s most beneficial.

During a HIFU treatment, the HIFU device emits tiny electric pulses of high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to the targeted facial areas. Some patients may experience slight redness and mild swelling after the procedure, but these symptoms typically subside soon after. The HIFU facial treatment promotes collagen production and improves skin tone, texture, and laxity, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Before a HIFU treatment, it is recommended to avoid any products or treatments that might irritate the skin. An initial consultation will provide all the necessary information tailored to your skin treatment needs.

While Ultherapy and HIFU treatments are excellent for skin tightening and promoting collagen and elastin production, they aren’t primarily designed for weight loss or fat loss. They work by targeting the layers of the skin to improve skin laxity, tone, and texture, which can result in a more contoured and youthful appearance.

HIFU treatment is often called a “lunchtime face lift” due to its noninvasive nature and quick procedure time. It uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production, resulting in skin tightening and rejuvenation. Unlike a surgical facelift, there’s no significant recovery time with HIFU, and patients can often return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure targeting the face, neck and décolletage, including the jowl and lower face. It expertly lifts, tightens and stimulates new collagen, naturally rejuvenating the areas. Result? An enviable neck lift and facelift effect that looks effortlessly youthful.

Yes, HIFU technology isn’t exclusive to facial treatment. It’s a versatile technology used in various medical and cosmetic treatments. Besides facial rejuvenation, it’s used in body contouring treatments and even in certain types of cancer treatments. The non-invasive nature of HIFU technology makes it a popular choice in many areas of medicine and aesthetics.
