High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a completely non-invasive treatment capable of delivering the closest results to a surgical facelift without surgery.
Using ultrasound energy HIFU targets the layers of skin just below the surface and the deeper Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) stimulating them to encourage the production of collagen which lifts, tightens and firms the skin.
Just one treatment can take as much as 5 – 10 years off your appearance and the remarkable results will leave you feeling fresh and more youthful. As HIFU targets the deeper muscular layers the surface of the skin is not affected so there is no downtime.
You will see:
• Lifting and tightening of skin along the jaw line, cheeks, eye area and neck
• Improvements in skin tone
• A reduction in the appearance of wrinkles
• A reduction in the appearance of Nasolabial Folds
• A reduction in the appearance of smoker’s lines.
While some people see the effects of the treatment immediately, true results develop over time as collagen is regenerated. Changes become apparent after two to three months and continue to develop for up to six months post treatment. Results last for approximately three years.
How many treatments will I need?
HIFU is generally best suited to people older than 30 who have mild-to-moderate loss of skin firmness.
The majority of people need one to two treatments but this will depend on your age and your skin. If you’re over 40 we recommend two treatments six months apart for best results.
Skin will continue to age after HIFU so follow up treatments can be useful after 12 to 24 months to maintain results.
What can I expect?
Treatments begin with a skin consultation to see if HIFU is right for you.
HIFU is generally a comfortable procedure however some people experience warmth or a deep tingling sensation in the area where the ultrasound energy is being applied. Areas like the jawline can be more sensitive.
Everyone’s tolerance levels are different. If you have a low pain tolerance, over-the-counter pain medication prior to treatment can be beneficial.
HIFU takes approximately 30 – 40 minutes to treat the face 45 – 60 minutes to treat the face and neck. After treatment the skin may be slightly flushed but this generally resolves within a few hours. Some mild swelling, tenderness and tingling the week after treatment is normal.
What do I need to do?
We recommend you:
• Avoid direct sun exposure for 14 days after your treatment and use physical sun protection
• Avoid waxing or hair removal procedures for a week
• Avoid facial treatments including microdermabrasion, peels and facials for at least two weeks.
• Avoid exfoliating products for 5 – 7 days.
• Avoid strenuous activity, the use of steam rooms and saunas, hot showers, chlorinated and salt water pools for at 48 hours post procedure.

Are you struggling with pockets of excess fat that just wont budge no matter how hard you try?
Our revolutionary 4D HIFU Body Lipolysis treatment might just be the answer, to contour, shrink excess fat and tighten your skin.
So what is a 4D HIFU Body Lipolysis?
HIFU Body Lipolysis is the latest non-invasive treatment that uniquely uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells without harming the skins surface and comes with an added benefit of tightening the skin too.
During a treatment, the high-intensity focussed ultrasound heat targets targeted fat cells at 60-70 degrees, passes through the skin with its use of ultrasound and permanently destroyed fat cells.
4D HIFU Body Lipolysis works on stubborn fat pockets that wont budge with exercise or diet on the abdomen, arms, bra fat, flanks, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs areas.
How it works
During a treatment, high-intensity ultrasound energy is focused on the targeted fat, like the way a magnifying glass works. The energy passes through the skin and the targeted fat beneath the surface at 60-70 degrees to permanently destroy the fat cells.
We use 2 different treatment heads with our machine, selected to the depth of the fat, depending on which area we are treating, each treatment includes two passes at two depths to achieve the very best in 4D HIFU technology.
Over the next few weeks & months, the body naturally removes the destroyed fat which is drained to the liver via your natural lymphatic channels and circulation, leaving you with a more contoured and firmer area treated.
Results of 4D HIFU Body Lipolysis
Results may be seen at 1-2 weeks but are usually seen within 4 to 6 weeks, which is the time needed for the body to naturally process and flush away ablated fat cells in the treated area.
Further result of skin tightening can continue up to 3 months after a single treatment, as new collagen and elastin take time to develop.
With any treatment that works on your own body’s natural ability to heal and rejuvenate, results may very from person to person.
Where this treatment excels is that there is also no downtime so that you can carry on with your day to day routine immediately.
How Safe is HIFU?
HIFU uses safe, time-tested ultrasound, which has been effective in clinical studies and the only FDA cleared non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that are proven to be safe and effective in clinical studies and have had over 450,000 treatments worldwide.
We have personally worked with HIFU since 2017 with our non-surgical facelifting treatments and our clients have loved the results.
The difference between fat reduction & weight loss
It is important to note, as it is a well-known misconception, that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing, in fact they are not and never will be. When we lose weight from an area, our fat cells become smaller but the actual number of fat cells we have remain the same, just reduced. When we gain weight, the fat cells then become larger again.
What the HIFU Body Lipolysis procedure does is reduces and moves the number of fat cells in the treated area, therefore rather than shrinking them to appear smaller like with weight loss by removing these cells they can never get bigger and are permanently removed.
FAT REDUCTION – Unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, the results with HIFU Body Lipolysis treatments do last, because once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gone for good. Even if you don’t weigh less, you’ll be trimmer and your clothes will not only fit and feel better, but you will look better too.
WEIGHT LOSS – When losing weight, your fat cells only become smaller, they will never disappear, the number of cells is still the same. When you gain weight your fat cells become larger again. After the procedure, the treated areas have fewer fat cells permanently and unlike what happens with other procedures there is no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.
1. Which areas of the body can be treated with 4D HIFU Body Lipolysis?
The treatment can be used in many areas of the body including the; Stomach, Thighs -Inner and Outer, Love Handles, Upper Arms, providing there is over 2.6 cm of fat and in the targeted area to be treated on.
2. What happens to the body fat that HIFU Body Lipolysis removes?
Over the next few weeks & months, the body naturally removes the destroyed fat which is drained to the liver via your natural lymphatic channels and circulation.
3. Will the fat that has been treated return?
No, the fat cells that are removed through the treatment will not come back, because adults have a limited number of fat cells, whatever is gone will not regenerate. However, the remaining fat cells still can expand and contract, increase in size and decrease in size, depending on many factors such as diet, exercise, genetics, age and use of medications.
4. I heard the treatment is painful?
Some clients experience tiny amounts of tingling, prickling, or warm sensations but these vary in severity and depending on fat thickness and the area to be treated. Some areas are not sensitive at all. Because pain varies between clients, we do prepare our clients to expect more discomfort due to the destruction of fat cells and the generated heat. Generally, there is minimal pain during this treatment.
5. Is HIFU Body Lipolysis a good treatment for a small amount of excess fat?
Clients for HIFU Body Lipolysis must have a minimum of over 2.6 cm of “pinchable or grabbable” fat. If you have less, then your fat layer will be rather thin and the programmed treatment depth will treat other tissues and not fat, with these clients our AlphaShape Pro Body contouring treatments may be more suitable.
During the consultation, body areas will be examined and measured, and a customised treatment plan established to ensure it is safe and suitable to have the treatment.
6. What are the main contraindications for HIFI Body Lipolysis?
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot undergo this treatment. You must also be of 18 years of age. In addition, you cannot have a hernia of any kind, skin infections or conditions, recent surgery or scar tissue, especially those who get keloid scarring or wounds in the treatment areas.
You must not be on blood thinners, anti-epieptic, ant-depressants or anti-psychotic medication.
And you can not have this treatment if mechanical or metal implants, implanted electrical devices such as pacemakers or metal implants.
7. How many Treatments will I need?
We often see great results from one treatment but on Average we recommend 2-4 treatments of 4D HIFU Body Lipolysis at 4 weeks apart or combined with our AlphaShape pro treatments for best results at 2 weeks apart.
Our body sculpting treatments are designed to assist people who have stubborn, subcutaneous fat deposits that they cannot shift with diet and exercise alone.
It is important to note our HIFU Body and AlphaShape Pro treatments are not a weight loss treatment, our treatments do not treat obesity, and does not replace the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet and exercise.
8. Can I resume my normal activity straight after the treatment?
There is no downtime procedure for body fat reduction. Most of the “recovery” happens unnoticed to the client, therefore there is no need to take time off work or stop your usual regime. We do recommend taking care straight after the procedure and of course not to consume any toxins, caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes and drink plenty of water after the procedure.
9. What side-effects can I expect after treatment?
After your treatment, your skin may appear slightly red in areas and this will disappear within 24 hours. Other less common side effects include temporary bruising or numbness that generally subsides naturally as the skin heals.
10. How much can I expect to lose from a single treatment?
Clinical studies and from our own treatment experiences, demonstrate that on average, clients lose up to an inch in the waist circumference (for some, this can mean down one dress size). Some clients have been known to lose more, while others achieved less.
Combined with our AlphaShape Sculpting treatment, you will be able to push more results.
We will take before and after pictures, plus measurements to keep a track of your results.
