HIFU specifically targets skin depths of 3mm and 4.5mm deep (which is 3 times deeper than was previously possible with lasers).
HIFU is able to achieve micro focused zones of heating to 160 degrees fahrenheit. This level of precise heating has never been achieved previously at these depths by an FDA approved device. The heating causes collagen proteins to denature and the body’s own natural healing process to repair, lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. This energy initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear after 2-3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck and smoothing skin on the chest.
HIFU delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery – but without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

How the HIFU treatment works
Unlike lasers, radio-frequency and other technologies, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision.
Also unique to HIFU is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows our practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.
HIFU is an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery – and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
