HIFU Lift and Tighten
What is HIFU Lift + Tighten
HIFU Lift + Tighten, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production to lift and tighten the skin. The results continue to get better over time for up to six months as the collagen production gets to work.
HIFU Lift + Tighten is an incredibly long-lasting treatment with clear benefits:
- Skin Tightening: HIFU promotes collagen production, leading to firmer and tighter skin.
- Wrinkle Reduction: The increased collagen helps smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
- Non-Invasive: HIFU doesn’t require surgery, making it a non-invasive alternative to traditional facelifts.
- Natural-Looking Results: The gradual collagen production results in a more natural and subtle enhancement.
- Stimulates Cellular Renewal: HIFU encourages the renewal of skin cells, contributing to a more youthful appearance.

What can I expect during my visit?
The appointment begins with a consultation, where the practitioner assesses your skin, discusses your goals, and determines the appropriate treatment plan.
The treatment area is cleaned to remove any makeup, oils, or lotions and a conductive gel is applied to the skin to enhance the transmission of ultrasound waves. The HIFU device is then applied to the targeted areas.
You may feel a warming or tingling sensation as the ultrasound energy is delivered. Some people report mild discomfort or a prickling sensation, but it is generally well-tolerated. The treatment duration varies depending on the areas being treated, but sessions typically last from 30 minutes to an hour.
How many treatments are required for best results?
Many people notice visible improvements after just one session for mild to moderate skin laxity. However, 2 to 3 sessions spaced 1 to 3 months apart is ideal for best results.
What is the downtime?
There is no downtime. Any immediate effects, such as redness, can be covered using makeup.
