High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (H.I.F.U.)

What is this and how can it help?

HIFU is a revolutionary alternative to a cosmetic facelift. HIFU tightens skin and targets adipose tissue by utilising high intensity focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin layers causing non-invasive thermal injury to the face and thermal coagulation to the fat cells. Deposition of ultrasound energy destroys fat cells and results in immediate contraction of the skin layers and stimulation of new collagen and elastin. Single treatment can give an immediate lifting of the skin and will continue to improve as the healing action will stimulate long-term tissue repair and lead to further lifting and tightening of the skin. Elimination of adipose cells and healing process of the tissue will gradually reduce the thickness of the fat layer.

Key Features

  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Lifts and tightens saggy skin
  • Rejuvenates the skin and restores a more youthful appearance
  • Contours the body by inch loss
  • Reduces body’s subcutaneous layer by destroying the fat cells

What are the benefits of H.I.F.U.?

Face & Neck tightening and lifting – HIFU stimulates collagen regrowth by focussing ultrasound at selected depths below the skin. Skin tightens via collagen contraction which enables the face, neck and chest to improve in appearance as new collagen continues to build. The following areas can be addressed:


  • Forehead: dynamic wrinkles, eyebrow lifting
  • Eyes: bags under the eyes, crow’s feet
  • Cheeks: nasolabial folds
  • Submental: double chin
  • Mandible (lower jaw) – loose skin, jowls


  • Loose skin
  • Wrinkles

Body Slimming & Contouring

HIFU can be used to destroy fat cells in targeted areas. These cells then drain through the lymphatic system and out of the body. Main target areas for fat reduction are:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Inner Thighs
  • Outer Thighs
  • Upper Arms

What are the side effects of H.I.F.U.?

These are minimal. You may experience skin redness, swelling, tingling or tenderness but this is temporary.

What is the downtime with H.I.F.U.?

Redness can last 1-2 days but you can go about your normal activities.

How long do the results from H.I.F.U. last?

Results can take up to 3 months to show fully and continue to improve for up to 6 month post treatments with results lasting up to 1 year. Facial treatments are not repeated more than once a year. Body treatments can be repeated after 6 months.

How much does H.I.F.U. cost?

Jaw & Double Chin – £750
Cheeks, Jowls Jaw & Chin – £1,000

H.I.F.U. vs. Threadlift

HIFU remodulates collagen and tightens the skin. Results are great but can take 3 months to appear. There is very little downtime but the procedure can take 60-90 minutes to complete. Threads provide an instant lift but still require up to 3 months to produce full effects. There is some downtime as skin dimpling can take 2-4 weeks to settle. HIFU is a great alternative if needles and threads give you butterflies in your tummy.

"I would highly recommend Doctor Q"

I used to go to this other place to get Botox done because it was cheap. But the last time my eyelid drooped. I called the practitioner but she kept ignoring me and was very rude. I went to Doctor Q. He explained that side effects can happen but there are ways to reduce the risk. He gave me some eye drops which helped by eyelid droop and after a month it resolved completely. I now get Botox at Luxe Skin. I would highly recommend Doctor Q.
