As you grow older, you’ve probably noticed the wrinkles around your eyes have become much more prominent. Those eyebrows aren’t as arched as they were 5 years ago. Wait, you don’t remember your jawline looking this jowly! You might have considered getting surgery, but it looks far too painful. Plus, you’d be out of work for a couple of weeks, which just isn’t doable.
What if you could have a non-surgical face lift to help you fight the signs of ageing? Would you be interested in a non-invasive procedure that has no recovery time, but could still help you retain a more youthful appearance?
HIFU Non-Surgical Facials are the best and most efficient way of boosting collagen production that tends to slow down with age. The treatment will naturally kick-start your body to gently increase the levels of the collagen and elastin, helping to lift and tighten your skin.
With a HIFU facelift, the ultrasound energy will target the deep structural layers of the skin with heat, tightening and lifting to reduce the signs of ageing and revealing a more youthful and refreshed look.

How does HIFU work?
During a HIFU face lift treatment, the practitioner delivers ultrasound energy deep into the structural layers of the skin. The heat energy is delivered at temperatures between 65c and 70c, targeting the different layers of the skin including the SMAS, deep dermis and epidermis. This precision targeting is unique to HIFU treatments. Other non-surgical skin tightening treatments are unable to target the specific tissues in this way. As the sound waves bypass the surface of the skin, they rapidly heat the dermal and sub-dermal tissue, causing a low-level injury to the tissue. In the process of ‘healing’ itself, the tissue stimulates the production and organisation of collagen fibres, which in turn leads to the long term tightening and lifting of the skin in the treated area. The creation of new collagen is a key part of helping the skin to maintain its youthful appearance.
Who is suitable for a HIFU face lift?
The procedure is best suited for clients between the ages of 30 – 75 years, who have mild to moderate skin laxity or looseness, and who are looking to delay the skin’s natural ageing process. HIFU is effective for slowing the ageing process so is effective in younger clients, aged 25yrs plus, who are looking for a highly effective and preventative, anti-ageing treatment. HIFU is also effective at prolonging the results following a surgical face lift.
What happens during the procedure?
During your treatment, a handheld applicator is used to deliver focused heat at a precise depths below the surface of the skin. You will feel a warm/hot sensation, or pinpoints of heat, deep within your skin. This is an indication that the collagen building process is working.
Do HIFU treatments hurt?
The Doublo S treatment is a 2nd generation HIFU device and is much more comfortable than the original Ultherapy treatment. Generally, the procedure is well tolerated, however, there are areas where the treatment becomes more intense or uncomfortable; typically this is along the jawline or the brow. Any discomfort will only be noticed at the moment the ultrasound energy is applied, lasting just a couple of seconds. During the treatment we can adapt the power output of the ultrasound to suit each client’s comfort levels. Pain relief can be taken 1hr before the treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
Our treatments take between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on the area you are having treated.
When will I see results?
Some clients may see some initial tightening after their treatment. The best results are seen over the coming weeks and months as the body starts to produce collagen and elastin. We invite you in to review your results at 3 months.
How many HIFU treatments will I need?
For best results, we recommend 3 HIFU treatments in year 1. Followed by 1-2 treatments each year to maintain. Single treatments are available but our experience shows that for greater results, multiple treatments are more beneficial.
