HIFU Facial

A non-surgical alternative to a facelift

Give skin back its snap… HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) often referred to as a ‘non-surgical face lift’, ‘lunchtime face lift’ or ‘Focus Dual treatment’ has become one of the most sought-after lifting, firming, and tightening treatments for face and neck. HIFU treatment uses Focused Ultrasound to target the deep structural layers of the skin with heat, which it does without damaging the skin’s surface. Focus Dual HIFU is one of the few treatments that can reach the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS)—which was previously accessible only via surgery. The result is a natural lift with virtually no downtime. The heat generated in the skin stimulates the cells to produce strong, new collagen and kick-start dormant collagen. As collagen production increases up to 12 weeks post treatment, this results in a more youthful and refreshed look.

Collagen is important for skin health because it is a natural protein that promotes skin suppleness, firmness, hydration, and a youthful glow. Unfortunately, collagen production begins to dwindle as we age. A HIFU Facial lifts, tightens, and firms up loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity. With Focus Dual we can lift, firm, tighten, and sculpt the face, brow, neck and jawline. Areas such as the chest, hands and other parts of the skin and body can also be treated. This treatment will not only give skin back its snap, but it will also naturally kick-start your body to increase the production of collagen and elastin to reduce signs of ageing. 

FAQ’s

How does a HIFU facial treatment work?

This non-surgical face lift works on the SMAS layer deep below the skin, which is the area surgeons tighten for face and neck lifts. Rather than surgery, the Focus Dual harnesses ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. Here’s an overview of how a HIFU facial treatment works:

  1. Ultrasound Waves: HIFU uses focused ultrasound waves to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin without harming the surface. The energy is delivered at precise depths to stimulate collagen production.

  2. Collagen Stimulation: The targeted ultrasound energy heats the tissue in the treated area, causing the cells to vibrate. This vibration generates heat, leading to the production of new collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin.

  3. Tightening Effect: The increased collagen production results in improved skin tightness and firmness. This tightening effect is noticeable over time and contributes to a more lifted appearance.

  4. Facial Lifting: HIFU can be used to target specific areas of the face, such as the brow, jawline, and neck, to achieve a lifting effect. It is often chosen as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift.

  5. Gradual Results: While some improvement may be seen immediately after the treatment, the full results develop gradually over a few weeks to months as the newly produced collagen enhances the skin’s structure.

  6. Non-Invasive: One of the key advantages of HIFU is its non-invasive nature. There are no incisions, and the procedure is generally considered safe with minimal downtime.

  7. Long-lasting Effects: The effects of HIFU can last for several months to a year or more, depending on individual factors such as age, skin condition, and the extent of the treatment.

Book a consultation to determine if HIFU is suitable for your specific needs and to discuss expected results, potential side effects, and any pre- or post-treatment care instructions.

What does the treatment feel like?

You may experience some mild heating or a slight tingling sensation during treatment. Patients describe this as moderate and acceptable.

How many sessions will I need?

Treatments are carried out every 4-6 weeks and typically between 1 and 3 treatments are recommended for best results. Top-up sessions are performed as required, but usually only once or twice a year.

How long will it take for me to see results from HIFU Treatment?

Results can usually be seen immediately, but the results get better and better up to 12 weeks post treatment as your collagen is renewed.
We expect results to last 1-2 years, but this can be dependent on lifestyle and maintenance.

Is there any downtime with a HIFU treatment?

Due to the non-invasive nature of HIFU treatments, there is virtually no downtime. You may experience slight redness following the treatment, and a small percentage of our clients do experience minor swelling, tingling or tenderness. These symptoms are mild and temporary. You will be able to return to your normal activities straight away, and there are no special recovery measures needed. This is why HIFU has earned the name “lunchtime face lift”.

I found Susan over a year ago, looking for a way to slow down the aging process. I turn 40 this year and started... looking after my skin too late. Now I come and see Susan for regular treatments of the radiofrequency micro needling on my face and neck. I love this treatment, because it feels a more natural process, causing my skin to produce its own collagen after the treatment as it heals. The downtime is nothing, my face is a little red that day but the next day I am back to normal so no one knows I have had it done. I love the feel of the treatment when I am having it done, I love the look of my skin now it is being maintained by Susan and I just feel better knowing I am doing something good for my skin. I have got rid of all the fancy moisturisers and I just use one moisturiser that agrees with my skin and a sun screen and I invest the rest of my money in this treatment, because it starts from the deeper inside layers of my skin. I wish I had started this in my twenties. Susan is so lovely as well, I trust my face with her completely.read more

I discovered The Laser Clinic and was quickly booked in for my consultation and then my first appointment. The... technician is friendly, reassuring and incredibly professional. She talked me through the whole process and helped me understand the procedure I was having. I’ve since had 3 sessions and my skin looks incredible! Having had the same treatment at a different clinic and being sorely disappointed with the results it was a great feeling to now see my skin without the issues I’d had for so long. I’d highly recommend The Laser Clinic to anyone and will be returning for top ups and other treatments in the future.read more

Susan is lovely, explained what treatment I would need and made sure I was comfortable at all times. I particularly... liked the rural location, as I'm not sure I would be as confident or relaxed going into a town centre environment. I had laser treatment on some red prominent veins on my nose and hair removal on my chin ( I've had a fear of being in an accident and waking up with a beard 😂, so decided to deal with it in a more permanent way) I would definitely give 5* rating and highly recommended The Laser Clinic Morpethread more

Having suffered from acne scarring since my teenage years (I'm 47 now), I finally decided to do something about it. I... was put in touch with Susan from The Laser Clinic and have just had my sixth and final laser treatment with her. I was incredibly nervous to start with, but she soon put me at ease and answered any questions I had. Six months on and my skin is much, much better and have been told it will continue to improve even further as a result of my specific treatment.All in all a great experience and I am extremely happy with the outcome.Cheers Susan!read more

Have recently had some laser treatment at the Laser Clinic and I am so happy with the results. I had treatment for some... facial pigmentation and thread vein removal, it has made a huge difference and would highly recommend it. Susan made me feel at ease from the start and answered any questions I had, she couldn’t have been nicer. The clinic is in a lovely, quiet, discreet location which is great as my face as expected was a bit red after the treatment, I would have hated to have to walk through town. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Laser Clinic, definitely 5 stars.read more
