A quick overview:
How it works
The highly focused energy creates thermal coagulation zones at 3 different selected depths. A wound healing response creates new collagen which provides a longer term tightening of the skin.
How many treatments?
One single non surgical face lift treatment every 18 months.
What is the treatment like?
During the treatment, the 3D-HIFU face handpiece is placed onto the skin and held in one area at a time. You will experience a slight vibration and warmth whilst the energy is being penetrated. This treatment may feel slightly uncomfortable around the jaw line but generally this treatment is pain free.
- 3D-HIFU is a standalone treatment.

FAQs and more information:
How does the HIFU Non Surgical Face Lift treatment work?
HIFU deliveries high intensity focused ultrasound energy in a 4cm line at 3 different depths into the skin (1.5mm, 3.0mm and 4.5mm) via a handpiece. It uses precise target-point heating directed within your cells molecules. This ultrasound energy creates a heat of 60-65° which, in turn, creates spaced ‘wounds’ or cones of heat and cellular friction.
The Friction between the molecules as a result, produces heat and thermal injury at the focal point of the HIFU delivery. Heat is created within the skin tissue, and only generated at the target point. Your skin’s surface remains unaffected by the heat as long as the energy stays within protocol and is not delivered in excess.
What happens to the treated area?
The result of this process promotes healing, immediate contraction and collagen stimulation through fibroblast activity within these treatment zones.
The SMAS layer (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is the layer which the muscles of the face and the soft tissue attach. It is a layer of tissue that attaches and surrounds the deeper tissues and structures of the face and neck, including the entire cheek area.
The SMAS is composed of collagen and elastin fibres similar to those of the dermal tissue but is more durable and has a less delayed reaction after lifting and tightening procedures. The SMAS is the section of the skin treated with HIFU to give a long lasting tightening effect as a result of treatment.
The healing process will work over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue repair which leads to further lifting and tightening. Because of this, you will see results develop over time.
Who is it for?
HIFU Non Surgical Face Lift is for anyone wishing to achieve a ‘lift’ on the face and neck. Get your youthful skin back without the need for injections!
What areas can be treated?
The HIFU Non Surgical Face Lift treatment focuses on the cheek area, forehead and eye area and also treats the neck.
What results can I expect?
Immediately after treatment the area will look a little pink and have an initial contraction or tightening of the face. Approximately 2-4 months after treatment, you will see the full effect of the HIFU Non Surgical Face Lift treatment. Results will last from 12-18 months.
What will I experience during treatment?
Firstly our Therapist will mark the treated area to determine treatment procedure. Our specialist will apply a thin layer of gel to the skin and the treatment head. The HIFU is emitted once the treatment head is placed on the area. We repeat this a number of times to cover the whole treatment area. There will be a build-up of heat in the area during the treatment. This sensation is generally stronger around the bony areas of the face. A facial treatment will take approximately 1 hour and 30 mins but may take longer depending on the client.
What happens after treatment?
As soon as the session is over, the treatment area will have normal surface temperature but heat will be felt deeper in the skin. The area can be red and swollen and this can be experienced for up to 2 weeks. The results of the HIFU procedure are usually visible two to four months after treatment.

Treatment summary and possible side effects:
What else do I need to avoid after treatment?
- Hot baths, heavy exercise, massage etc. for 5 to 7 days after the treatment
- Avoid sun beds and no sunbathing during the healing process of the skin (which is up to 2 months). This could results in Hyper-Pigmentation of the treated skin.
- Apply SPF 30 daily
