HIFU at FTT Skin Clinics

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is the latest technology to be harnessed by the Aesthetics industry. It offers the most effective non-surgical skin tightening solution available today.

HIFU has been recommended in recent clinical trials as a safe, effective non-invasive procedure.  It is used to significantly improve facial wrinkles and skin laxity and is particularly effective for targeted improvement in the jawline, cheek, eyes, forehead and for sagging skin in the neck area.

HIFU is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer which is deeper than all other non-surgical facial treatments. SMAS is the same layer which is tightened during conventional facelift surgery. Finally HIFU requires no down time, unlike surgery.

We offer the following HIFU Treatments

  • Forehead.
  • Cheeks.
  • Double Chin.
  • Neck.

Frequently asked questions

Find out more…

HIFI is “High Intensity Focused Ultrasound”. Ultrasound is used to stimulate deep layers which support the skin creating a lifted, firm appearance and stimulates the production of further collagen.

Someone probably 30+ who skin on face or neck had become lax and wishes to lift and tighten.

Clients may see an immediate improvement but generally lifting and firming will occur over three months as collagen is replaced with new stronger collagen. As the process continues improvements can appear for up to six months after the initial treatment. Most clients will find results last over a year although further treatments are recommended to retain the improvements.

Normally no downtime or recover time and most clients return to normal activities straight away. There may be slight redness following the treatment and a minority of clients report swelling, tingling or tenderness.
