Tighten + Lift Non-Surgical Skin Lift
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that is noninvasive and painless, some consider the treatment a replacement for face lifts.
The device uses ultrasound energy that is aimed to the muscle, (SMAS) that the surgeons pull during face lift. The energy produced can be between 59-69 degrees. This will trigger an inflammatory response from the muscle that lead to cascade of events that form collagen in the process. The final result is a firm and tight skin. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent tissue.
The first reported use of HIFU for aesthetic use was in 2008. (Trusted Source.) HIFU was later approved by FDA in 2009 for brow lifts. The device has been used successfully and was cleared in 2014 to improve fine lines of the neck and decolletage.
From the day of treatments the results usually unfold between 2 to 6 months. The procedure is also used for tightening, rejuvenation of the face and jowls.
How does it work
HIFU is one of the most popular and highly developed systems available. Non-invasive ultrasound energy generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin. This stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation. With just one treatment, HIFU pushes mature skin to start working hard again. Smoother, firmer, and brighter skin in the months after treatment.

Frequently asked questions
What Is High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFUTherapy)?
HIFUTherapy is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. The treatment uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Can Utherapy Replace a Face Lift Procedure?
HIFUTherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. However it is a great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How is HIFUTherapy Different to Laser Procedures?
. HIFUTherapy uses sound energy, tried and true ultrasound, which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. HIFUTherapy stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over the following 2-3 months. Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they’re actually very compatible.
How Does HIFUTherapy Stimulate Collagen Production?
During the treatment the transducer delivers and deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. The treatment itself doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins, it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
How Long Will a HIFUTherapy Treatment Take?
Will I Need to Take Time off Work?
With a single HIFUTherapy treatment there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures. We have even had clients come up to the clinic on their lunchbreak to have the treatment, no creams required and your general skin care plan and make-up can be applied as normal.
What Does HIFUTherapy Feel Like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
How Many HIFU Treatments Will I Need?
Most clients only need one treatment. However this may be based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some clients may benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process
. Who is a Good Candidate for HIFU?
A good HIFU candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re a suitable candidate is to consult with a practitioner.
