High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is your next best thing to an actual face lift. Though not possible to get the exact same benefits from a surgical face lift, this procedure gets as close as possible without a knife in sight, downtime, or discomfort.
HIFU therapy lifts, tightens and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity.

CAN HIFU FACELIFT REPLACE A SURGICAL FACELIFT
HIFU Therapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery but won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift. However, it is a great alternative, especially for those not ready to go under the knife or for anyone looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST
After your HIFU treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 month, as your body naturally regenerate collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last depend on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translate into visible results on the outside.
Dermal Fillers - allthough dermal fillers are not a contraindication, the use of HIFU on dermal fillers will break
them down. Good timing of different skin treatments is important for optimal results. Your skin clinician can help you plan this.
Facial Implants -
HIFU is suitable for anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity where skin begins to feel and look less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While HIFU Therapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
