Non-Surgical Face Lift (HIFU)

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a treatment that provides overall tightening and rejuvenation of the skin on the face and neck.

As we get older, the effects of ageing can cause both the muscles and fat pad deposits in our faces start to descend gradually. This increase in loose tissue, particularly in the jowl area, can have a very ageing effect, making us look more stern, sadder or more tired than we are. 

 

A procedure called High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also known as the “Ultrasound Face-lift” or “Non-Surgical Face-lift” is now the most popular lifting treatment globally, successful for facial and neck rejuvenation. It works by stimulating the body′s own natural collagen production, encouraging rapid cell renewal to help the skin maintain its youthful glow.

 

While providing overall skin tightening and rejuvenation, there will also be a noticeable improvement in facial contouring and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. HIFU is an entirely safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that sees visible effects after just one session, benefiting areas such as eyebrows, jowls, under the chin and neck, and improving lines and wrinkles, loose skin and crepe-like skin.

 

Undergoing this treatment can help to counteract the adverse effects of gravity and time, restoring a youthful appearance that can subsequently boost your self-confidence. It may be advisable to repeat this procedure once or twice annually, to maintain optimal results. Additionally, Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic offers various other tops of the line non-surgical facelift treatments including the 8-point lift technique with Dermal Filler, Radiofrequency (RF) and  DermaPen.

 

Another indication of HIFU is to target stubborn fat, to destroy the subcutaneous fat tissue. It allows for treatments of specific targeted areas such as double chin with no downtime. Using three different depths of Ultrasonic penetration with the body handpiece, we will permanently destroy fat cells and tighten the area’s skin. HIFU has the highest percentage of skin tightening efficiency, permanent fat cell breakdown. Ultrasound waves specifically target the unwanted fat cells, disrupting them to a liquid state. This fatty liquid (triglycerides released by damaged cells) will leave your body naturally once this has been achieved.

Frequently Asked Questions

Collagen production is regenerated by the deposit of focused ultrasound energy, deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature. The treatment activates a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, which is the production of fresh, new collagen cells. There are no creams, fillers or toxins involved, as this process depends on the body’s collagen-building abilities to bring about natural, noticeable results.

A right candidate for HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) 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. A pre-treatment consultation with one of the expert practitioners at Dr PJ Aesthetic Clinic will look at your condition and consider your desired outcome to assess your suitability.

The treatment is considered to be very safe. It can be effective when treating all skin types without causing any side effects. The HIFU procedure has been used safely in over 350,000 treatments worldwide, with Ultrasound energy itself being used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years.

The treatment is not pain-free; however, it is entirely bearable. This treatment can produce some sensitivity, as the heat combines with a tingling sensation, but it is not reported to be too uncomfortable. Comfort levels vary from person to person, and the feeling will only last maximum few hours after the procedure.

The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should, however, disappear within a few hours. Some clients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are also temporary. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any cosmetic procedure, there is the possibility of other rare side effects such as tiny blisters, superficial burning, which your practitioner will review with you.

Results will develop over 1-3 months. The treatment area will look brighter and feel tighter and firmer. The results can last up to 1 year, so to maintain the effects for longer than this will require regular top-ups. Your expert practitioner will be able to arrange this for you.
