HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift (Third Generation)
As a part of the ageing process, our skin - and tissue - loses its collagen, resulting in skin laxity, or what you might call face sagging.
Collagen production slows with age, and HIFU non-surgical facelifts are proven to be an effective method for tackling this common ageing concern, encouraging your body to naturally increase the levels of collagen and elastin it’s producing, lifting and tightening your skin as a result.
Using high intensity focused ultrasound for face lifting, the structural layers of your skin will be targeted with heat, leaving you fresh-faced and looking years younger.

This non-surgical facelift procedure is effective for general firming, as well as tightening and lifting.
What is HIFU?
HIFU is an abbreviation for high-intensity focused ultrasound – an advanced, cosmetic technology which tightens and lifts numerous areas of the face, improving skin tone in as little as one session.
A reduction in the rate at which your body produces collagen comes with age; the face and neck become looser as the elasticity deteriorates, causing concern for many, particularly around the jowls and jawline.

Revolutionary, non-surgical face lifting
After the treatment your skin will tighten, and you will see further improvements over time, as your body starts producing collagen again.
A precise tightening treatment for the skin and deeper tissues (SMAS), your body’s natural healing and collagen regeneration process will welcome a healthier and tighter appearance to your face, neck and décolleté.

HIFU Non-surgical facelift FAQs
Generally, the skin will begin to look smoother and tighter after your first treatment, and you’ll see continuous improvement for up to six months thereafter, as your collagen continues to regenerate.
It’s worth noting that the results will vary from person to person, depending on the original condition of the skin and deeper tissue, as well as the degree and cause of the damage.
- No anaesthetic is required
- The treatment takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the area
- A gel will be applied to the treatment area
- You may experience a prickling sensation, followed by a feeling of mild heat
- Different heads are used for the various depths and skin conditions
For skin tightening and lifting, no anaesthetic is required – plus, with the third generation HIFU we use at Dr D Aesthetics, you can expect even lower levels of pain or discomfort.
The levels of treatment can be adjusted to suit patient comfort.
Yes, the treatment and device are perfectly safe, but it must be carried out by a suitably trained and experienced healthcare professional to ensure that different areas are treated at the correct levels.
You may experience a mildly warm sensation for an hour or two after your treatment; that aside, you should feel virtually no discomfort and there shouldn’t be a need for downtime.
Your skin may be red in appearance for a few hours after the treatment; this usually resolves in less than 24 hours. Swelling is minimal, particularly under the eyes (if treated) and resolves in one to two days. Make-up may be applied after 24 hours.
After treatment, you can go ahead with your daily activities. If you do experience any swelling, you can expect this to reside within three to seven days and any slight ache or discomfort should resolve within one to two weeks.
This technology is usually not suitable for those with a ‘sunken’ face, as there would be a risk of melting facial subcutaneous fats. Neuropraxia (temporary nerve damage) is rare.
The use of a high-factor sunscreen (SPF 50+) and recovery cream following your treatment plays a crucial role in the healing phase and should be used for several weeks following the treatment.
Your doctor will discuss all your aftercare needs with you during your consultation and our professional and friendly team are always on hand to answer any questions you may have once you’ve had your treatment.
