High Intensity Focused Ultra-Sound
As we age collagen production slows down. Our face, neck and décolletage start to lose tone and elasticity and we often notice our skin becoming looser or start to sag. This can cause particular concern around the jawline or jowls, the neck and brow area; ageing us beyond our years.
Our HIFU treatment uses Ultrasound energy which is able to target the deep structural layers of the skin. By targeting heat at specific depths we can kick start the body’s healing response, this naturally increases the levels of collagen in the tissues. As collagen increases, this leads to a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin. Helping to reduce the signs of ageing, for a younger, more refreshed appearance.*
HIFU is able to reach tissues that other anti-ageing treatments can’t affect. This makes HIFU a very popular alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments such as thread lifts or injectable toxins and fillers.

Benefits of a HIFU Face Lift?
Our HIFU non-surgical face lift treatment is an advanced cosmetic procedure and offers many benefits, these include
The procedure is best suited for clients between the ages of 35 – 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 also effective at prolonging the results following a surgical face lift.
The Doublo S treatment is a 2nd generation HIFU device and is much more comfortable than the original Ultherapy treatment. Generally the procedure is not painful, however there are areas where the treatment becomes more intense or uncomfortable; typically this is along the jaw line 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.
Our treatments take between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours, depending on the area you are having treated.
Some clients may see some initial tightening after their treatment. This is partly due to the contraction within the SMAS layer; but also partly due to the body’s healing response to the treatment. This may be transient and will fade in a couple of days. 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.
We normally recommend between 1 – 3 treatments spaced throughout the year. Check out our fantastic special offers for a course of 3 treatments.
