HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, it is the latest non-surgical, clinically proven technology, for lifting and tightening the face, neck and body.

How does it work?


Ultra V HIFU uses the power of ultrasound to safely lift and tighten skin. The energy used is significantly different from light energy such as IPL, lasers or electrical- such as radiofrequency.

HIFU protects the skin surface but penetrates into a deeper depth of the fat layer where structural weakening of tissues are seen. These layers are responsible for the appearance of sagging and droop on the face and neck.

In the past, these planes are only accessible by surgeons doing surgical face lifts. Now with the new technology, patients can enjoy looking younger without having to go ‘under the knife’ and avoid long downtime.

As the tissues heals, it promotes new collagen formation and natural contraction., Skin firming becomes noticeable which improves over time.

Over the next 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last years.

What can it treat and what is its benefits?

HIFU is now considered the Gold Standard technology for skin tightening. It is a regenerative facial treatment for lifting and for maintenance.

As we age, the supportive fibres under the skin tends to weaken and this leads to a droop in many areas of the face and neck. HIFU stimulates natural collagen remodelling and the rebuilding process continues for several months after the treatment. This means that over time, results becomes more noticeable even with 1 session.

The Benefits of HIFU

  • Increases elastin and production of collagen = reducing fine to moderate wrinkles
  • Under eye troughs, bags and dark circles
  • Improves, firms and tightens the binding force between the skin tissues = skin lifting
  • Tighter skin = improve jawline, double chin and sagging neck


Am I suitable for the treatment?

A consultation is always needed as this will give us a chance to assess your condition and will help us to understand what results you are looking for so we can find the perfect solution for you.

Anyone with drooping skin, or considering a face lift but isn’t ready for surgery is a good candidate.

All Skin types and tones can be treated.

When can I do another treatment?

There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature and after, your skin will be firm and tighten.

Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.

We recommend a series of 3-5 sessions for best result and maintenance twice/year.


The HIFU System is contraindicated for use in patients with:

  • open facial wounds or lesions
  • acne on the face or neck
  • metal stents/implants in the face or neck
  • implantable electrical devices

What is a HIFU Plus+ Facelift?

  1. A revolutionary Face Lifting technique that is different from RF like Thermage and more comfortable than other Ultra-therapy lifting device.
  2. A new generation of ultrasound lifting from Korea that is more comfortable than first generation ultrasound lifting devices.
  3. HIFU Plus+ uses high intensity ultrasound to produce micro collagen and tightening areas thereby lifting up the skin.

Possible treatment areas:

  • Saggy Cheeks
  • Neck
  • Eye Corners
  • Brow Areas
  • Double chinMECHANISM

Combine with Ultra V Lift for best results

Our unique protocol of combining new HIFU Plus+ with Ultra V lunch time PDO threadlift can give greater lifting results. Patients can achieve a sharper, tighter and more contoured V face look.
