Benefits of HIFU
HIFU can be used wherever skin starts to sag or lose suppleness.*Treatment results may vary from person to person. For the face typical treatment areas include:
- Full Face
- Crows Feet – Near Eye Area
- Forehead Lines
On the body, it can be used for lax skin on the arms, the inner thighs, and the abdomen.
Some tightening of the skin is normally observed immediately after treatment, and the effect increases over the ensuing weeks due to new collagen formation in conjunction with the continued retraction of the connective tissue matrix. An annual maintenance session is recommended.
Pros and Cons of HIFU
Most patients report that HIFU is a painless treatment. As a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, it is comfortable, and most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after a session. Makeup can be applied the following day.
It is possible that a patient may experience some mild swelling or look mildly flushed, but if it does occur it usually subsides within a day. Patients might also experience a slight tenderness in the treated areas for the next few days.
Naturally, the effectiveness of HIFU will be limited by the amount of retraction their skin can deliver. This is affected by age, skin type, skin thickness, and a variety of other factors. For significant sagging, your therapist may suggest alternative procedures.
Skincare after HIFU
Depending on your skin type, your therapist may suggest using a topical sun protection and product usage that may prolong the condition of the skin

A good candidate for 3D-HIFU is someone with skin that has relaxed to the point of, and often feeling less firm. i.e. tired. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are good candidates. If you are unsure about your compatibility please ask staff for a free consultation.
3D-HIFU Face addresses any area where there is mild to moderate skin laxity issues. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, 3D-HIFU Face can lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, open up the eyes, and gives a more rejuvenated look overall. It is also highly effective on loose skin on the neck area and brings definition to the face and jawline.
Clients may witness some initial effect, but the ultimate ‘lifting and firming’ will take place over 2-3 months, as collagen is renewed and replaced with new stronger collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, continued improvements can appear up to six months following treatment.
The firming benefits achieved following the treatment should last over one year, but skin continues to age. Yearly, touch-up treatments are recommended to combat the ageing process.
There may be slight redness for about one hour following the procedure, and a low percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to touch but these are mild and temporary in nature.
