HIFU Face & Body

The latest technology to erase fat!

This machine is a powerful, sleek dual combination platform for skin lifting and targeted fat reduction using the latest clinically proven HIFU technology to treat both face and body concerns, actively endorsed by renowned surgeons as a safe alternative to going under the knife.

HIFU treatments are a popular option for those seeking a non-surgical facelift or to tighten their skin or reduce fat. HIFU uses ultrasonic energy to penetrate and revitalise the three layers of the skin. The connective tissue otherwise known as Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), epidermis and dermis, to lift and tighten, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Over time as we age this connective tissue degenerates, causing connective tissue to droop. HIFU not only stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation but tightens loose connective tissue to create firmness, lifts areas of sagging skin and reduces fat, fine lines and wrinkles.

HIFU is a perfect option as it does not require downtime and provides semi-permanent results that gradually improve for several months post treatment.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment, HIFU for short, is a non-invasive treatment used for anti-ageing. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound uses ultrasound energy to encourage collagen production to make skin firmer.

Clinical trials have found HIFU to be a safe and effective treatment for refining wrinkles and offering face lifting benefits. Results are seen within a few months after treatment and without the risks associated with facelift surgeries.

HIFU is a non-surgical treatment used to firm and tighten skin. It uses ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production to help tighten, firm and lift skin.

Targeting the deeper layers (superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) causes the skin to rapidly heat up to cause cellular damage. Whilst counterintuitive, this triggers the body’s NATURAL wound healing response to encourage the production of collagen. Collagen is responsible for the structure of the skin therefore increasing collagen production results in tighter, firmer skin.

This treatment is ideal for clients that desire to resolve any of the following skin
concerns of the face, neck, arms, elbows, tummy, inner thighs and kness:

  • Sagging skin on face or neck
  • Drooping brows, face, cheeks, or eyelids
  • Double chin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Mild to moderate loose or sagging skin – neck, decolletage, arms, knees, inner thighs.
  • Loose skin post pregnancy or weight loss
  • Lack of jawline definition

There are many benefits of HIFU treatments. 

  • Ability to NATURALLY ‘lift’ treatment areas without the need for surgery i.e., eyebrow, forehead area, tighten and lift around the cheeks, sculpt, and tighten the jawline, smooth fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, reduce skin laxity on the face and body.
  • No downtime. Patients can resume daily activities and wear mineral makeup immediately post-treatment. 
  • Quick and efficient. Depending on the skin concerns being treated, patients can generally achieve desired results with 1-2 treatments. 
  • Targets chosen areas without causing damage to surrounding skin and tissues. 
  • Treatment does not cut or disrupt the surface of the skin.
  • Stimulates NATURAL wound healing response to produce collagen and tissue rejuvenation. 
  • No need for Botox, fillers, or surgery to achieve desired results. 
  • Relatively pain-free. 
  • Semi-permanent results that gradually improve for up to 6+ months following treatment. 
  • Medically safe solution to tighten skin on the face and body.

This means that the following skin concerns can be targeted by HIFU:

  • Lifting drooping eyelids or eyebrows.
  • Reducing the appearance of jowls.
  • Smoothing wrinkles.
  • Tightening neck skin and décolletage.

HIFU uses focussed ultrasound energy to heat the skin at a deep level. At 60°C and 80°C, the targeted cells become damaged, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response, kickstarting a repair process that produces new collagen and elastin.

  • The natural production of collagen and elastin declines with age, leading to sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles. By encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin, skin can become firmer and smoother, with wrinkles becoming less visible.
  • The HIFU energy is applied to a depth of 1.5-4.5mm in the skin, depending on the specific skin concern being treated. For example, a client with severe skin laxity may need a treatment at a deeper level.
  • HIFU cartridges to the depth of 1.5mm, 3.0mm, and 4.5mm are used during a typical facial tightening and contouring process.

HIFU treatments are non-invasive, so there is virtually no downtime for this treatment. Known as the ‘lunchtime face lift’, you should be able to have a HIFU treatment and then carry on with your day as usual with no recovery measures required.

After a HIFU treatment, clients may experience redness, minor swelling, tenderness, or mild tingling.

Initial improvements may be immediately obvious, but most clients will see lifting, tightening, and firming two to three months after their treatment.

This is because the skin needs time to repair and produce new collagen and elastin, which won’t happen overnight! Your skin will continue to build up collagen, so further improvements may even be seen for up to six months past your final procedure.

HIFU treatments can be carried out every 4-6 weeks, but as it can take around 12 weeks from your treatment for the results to become noticeable, it is best to wait to ensure time for the results of the previous treatment to be seen before deciding whether to have more treatments or not. Further treatments can be helpful for further refining and lifting the face if required.

You can get top-up sessions for HIFU as needed, but once the desired result for your non-surgical facelift has been achieved, the treatment should last 1-2 years, depending on your age and lifestyle.

At Natural You Clinic, HIFU treatment pricing starts from £450.

When you consider a surgical facelift will set you back thousands of pounds, plus a lot of downtime for surgery recovery, a HIFU treatment can be a much more desirable option.

HIFU treatments are suitable for all skin types, as it does not target pigmentation.

People with a higher level of loose or saggy skin, or sun-damaged skin, may need several treatments before seeing results.

Everyone’s pain threshold is different, you may experience slight discomfort while the ultrasound energy is delivered “it’s a positive sign that the process is working”. At Natural You Clinic we will discuss any questions or concerns in more detail with you at your consultation.
