HIFU Facelift – High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound

High-intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary facelift treatment which is significantly more effective than other non-invasive face lift procedures.

A revolution in non-surgical facial rejuvenation

The efficacy of HIFU is appointed by the fact that it can target both the superficial dermis and the SMAS.

The SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is the same layer that surgeons work on during facelift surgery, but unlike surgery, HIFU is far more affordable and requires no downtime following the treatment.

The Science

The science behind HIFU is simple, yet incredibly clever. The applicator uses three high-intensity focused beams of ultrasound. Singularly, each beam has no effect on the skin and tissue, but the beams triangulate and at the point of convergence they generate thermal energy.

The heat energy stimulates the tissue which can cause it to tighten while simultaneously creating new fibres of collagen (see research).


Our faces are the first place to show the signs of ageing. As we grow older, the elastin in the skin degrades and loses integrity forming frown lines, crow’s feet, and drooping necks. HIFU can help to counteract these effects by tightening the skin and creating new collagen (see research).
