HIFU non surgical face and neck lift
Avalon Medispas HIFU non-surgical face and neck lift has become one of the most sought after lifting and tightening treatments for face and neck. The HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) non-invasive lift uses focussed ultrasound to stimulate natural tightening and lifting of collagen and elastin fibres under the skin. Effectively delivering ultrasonic energy into the skin’s foundation layers to target the same deep tissue planes as a surgical facelift but without cutting or disrupting the skin. A one-off treatment with no downtime and results lasting up to three years, you will see a noticeable improvement to facial contours. *
N.B. HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is also known as Ultherapy, Ulthera, ‘Ultrasound Facelift’,3D HIFU and the non-surgical face lift.
How does HIFU Face and Neck lift work?
HIFU is a face lifting and neck tightening technology that is revolutionary because of its use of focused ultrasound that create tiny heat spots underneath the SMAS (Sub Muscular Aponeurotic System) and deep subcutaneous tissue. Lines of tiny heat spots delivered at varying degrees, will create a vector of pull or lift, effectively targeting sagging and loose skin. Tissue laxity is largely the result of structural weakening in the skin’s foundation (SMAS and Platysma muscles). The Sub Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is a layer of strong connective tissue that envelops the face and connects to the platysma muscle in the neck. Prior to high intensity focused ultrasound treatments, this layer was only accessible during a surgical facelift. The revolutionary HIFU energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new stronger tighter collagen and elastin fibres.

The treatment has no downtime and most people do not report experiencing any sensation at all. There can be an occasional feeling of warmth and slight aching over bony areas during treatment. This generally dissipates as soon as the treatment has ended.
After just one treatment, a fresher, firmer and more youthful appearance can be achieved without the need for surgery or downtime. If you want long-lasting lifted results, a HIFU non-surgical lift treatment may be exactly what you’re looking for. High intensity micro-focused ultrasound bypasses the skin’s surface and delivers targeted deep regeneration of the skin’s structures. The results will develop over the course of 2-6 months and last up to three years. *
Yes, HIFU works extremely well as part of our anti-aging package. We have many before and after photos to share during your consultation, as an example of what you can expect to achieve. *
There is no downtime and most people can return to their normal duties immediately. There are usually no obvious signs of having had the procedure on the skins surface, as HIFU treats the deeper layers.
There may be slight redness following the treatment, and a very small number of patients report inflammation, tingling or tenderness to touch. * If this is the case for you, treat your skin gently, apply aloe vera or cool compresses as necessary. Full aftercare advice will be provided at your appointment.
