Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) uses ultrasound power to safely lift and tighten your skin. Ultrasound is a form of energy that’s significantly different from the light like electrical (radio frequency) or IPL and Lasers energy. HIFU protects your skin surface while penetrating at deeper depths and higher temperatures than RF (radio frequency).
The Procedure from Lipo Sculpt
Tissue at your targeted point is heated to ~65 degrees Celsius; thermal heat is then created with your skin, which creates both spaced wounds plus cellular friction. This, in turn, promotes healing, instantly contracts collagen and stimulates a faster production. Over the next three to six months, the wound-healing response will stimulate long-term tissue, leading to further lifting plus tightening, with long-lasting results.
A Revolution in Facial Rejuvenation That is Non-surgical
This technology is distinctive in its capability of penetrating the SMAS layer (superficial muscular aponeurotic system), which is tightened during conventional facelift surgery, and dermis, which is deeper than the other non-invasive facial treatments. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is more affordable and doesn’t require time off work, unlike surgery.
As you grow older, collagen proteins start losing their integrity; this is what causes things such as a drooping neck, crow’s feet and frown lines. Tightening the superficial muscular aponeurotic system layer and replenishing collagen tightens and tones your skin.
Areas That Can Be Treated
This procedure is effective at treating these areas of your face:
- Sagging neck
- Double chins
- Crow’s Feet
- Forehead frown lines
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Usually, the required sessions are only one or two. You will see improvement within three to four weeks, with further gains of up to six months. Patients who have undergone this treatment can experience results that last more than six months.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Each session depends on the treatment area, but approximately 30 minutes for each area is recommended. Your treatment is going to be tailored according to your individual requirements. Additional time might be needed in case you want the treatment to be performed in more areas.

Also, the treatment cannot be performed if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime because it doesn’t involve surgery; that means that you can go back to work immediately. There are no special measures that need to be taken.
A nourishing face mask is recommended to enrich your skin. You should moisturise your skin three times per day. Use a sunscreen and avoid steam rooms plus saunas for two weeks.
Additionally, drink lots of water and make sure you avoid alcohol for a period of 24 hours. Any swelling or redness is short-lived.
You could experience a slight redness for several hours after the treatment. A few patients may have slight swelling, tenderness to touch, bruising or tingling, but these are mild and don’t last for long. Also, very rarely numbness that is short-lived.
Does it Hurt?
HIFU doesn’t cause major discomfort; however, you may feel, a warm sensation, tingling discomfort or a slight prickly pain lasting only a few seconds and at pulsation cycle only, during the application of ultrasound energy.
The discomfort is often very brief, and it is a good indication that the process of building collagen has started. Comfort thresholds can differ from one person to another. Patients normally leave comfortable and excited because of the benefits that lie ahead.
Is HIFU Safe?
The procedure of HIFU has been used safely worldwide in more than 250,000 treatments. Ultrasound energy has been used safely for over 50 years in the field of medicine.
Can High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Replace a Procedure for Face Lift?
HIFU treatment treats your deep foundational layer that is addressed in cosmetic surgery, though it will not duplicate facelift results. But, it’s a great alternative, especially for people who aren’t ready for surgery, or for those looking to extend cosmetic surgery effects.
