High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound
HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) is a great non-surgical face and skin tightening treatment.
This treatment is not only good for the face and neck but also a great option for loose skin after post-pregnancy weight loss.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound at Hannah London
At Hannah London clinic, you can instantly see the beneficial effects of a HIFU treatment after just 1 treatment. HIFU therapy works by gently lifting and sculpting facial features. As we approach our late twenties, we begin to lose collagen that is responsible for rejuvenated skin. Collagen is vital in making our skin feel plump and look youthful.
Patients may choose to focus on lifting the brows in order to open the eyes and appear more refreshed and youthful, or you may want to choose to work on your jaw and neck to reduce or eliminate sagging. This is a marvellous treatment that can be customised to help improve the areas of your face you feel most insecure about, without any incisions, needles or intense pain.
Face & Neck
During the HIFU treatment, the handheld HIFU device is held against the skin to emit ultrasound waves down to the muscle that sets into motion the marvellous and natural work of collagen. This results in amazing skin tightening, rejuvenation, and regeneration properties for firmer and smoother skin.
The results continue to get better over time for up to six months as the collagen production gets to work. This makes HIFU an incredibly long-lasting treatment (up to three years) that does not require regular top-ups or repeat treatments.
HIFU can also be applied to different areas of the body for the same collagen boost and benefits. As such, it is an alternative to invasive treatments and it also works with the natural elements of your body instead of working against it.
You can choose HIFU body treatments to target the likes of your arms, abdomen, back, legs, sides, and more. Just like with the face and neck areas above, HIFU body treatments implement a process known as thermocoagulation in conjunction with both collagen production and skin contraction to bring these brilliant results.
This new non-invasive treatment is loved by many because it is the ideal, non-surgical alternative to a face-lift with its tightening qualities. If you want to quickly and safely lift, sculpt and tighten aging skin this is the ideal treatment for you!
What are the steps in a HIFU treatment?
This is a fast procedure lasting anywhere from 30-90 minutes.
We begin with a consultation to understand what are your desired results.
On the day of the appointment, the doctor prepares your skin by marking the chosen area and by cleaning the skin surface to remove any residue like excess makeup or oils.
Once the skin has been thoroughly cleansed and marked, the doctor proceeds to apply 1-2mm of a specific HIFU gel onto the skin surface.
This is a cold gel that works as a heat and light conductor.
After the gel application, the doctor will use the HIFU handheld device moving it over the chosen section of the face.
This device will deliver high energy ultrasound energy waves in short bursts.
The device has a collection of different heads which allows the doctor to target different sections beneath the skin surface such as the deeper, subcutaneous (fat), or more superficial layers under the skin’s epidermis to eliminate all signs of aging.
Once the device has emitted the ultrasound waves, the skin will be cleansed by the doctor by removing any excess gel/markings on the skin surface.

Frequently Asked Questions
Let us answer some of the HIFU questions you may have below.
HOW MANY HIFU SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED TO SEE A RESULT?
After just one treatment, you can see noticeable results post-procedure!
The results continue to get better over time for up to six months as the collagen production gets to work.
This makes HIFU an incredibly long-lasting treatment (up to three years) that does not require regular top-ups or repeat treatments.
The HIFU therapy is unique and its ability to improve the results over time may vary, particularly around the 6-month period.
This is due to the internal inflammatory response (do not worry this will not cause visible swelling), which occurs due to cellular damage which works to induce collagen formation.
As more time passes the body’s collagen production will continue to increase which explains why results are maintained and even greater quite sometime after the last procedure.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY TIME AFTER HIFU THERAPY?
There is no downtime after HIFU therapy, as it is non-surgical, the recovery period is significantly shorter than an actual facelift.
Your doctor will discuss this further with you.

WHO IS HIFU THERAPY RECOMMENDED FOR?
Dermatologists recommend the procedure for people who are experiencing mild to moderate premature aging symptoms.
Those who are currently experiencing cystic acne, active cold sores, or high levels of sagging skin are not ideal candidates for HIFU therapy.
If you are unsure if you are the perfect candidate for this procedure make sure to contact Hannah London and book a free consultation to find out more information.
IS HIFU TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Patients report the procedure not being very painful due to its non-invasive qualities, meaning there are no needles involved and nothing is piercing the skin surface, making it a mostly pain-free experience.
Although HIFU therapy is usually a pain-free experience the aesthetician can apply a numbing cream to ensure the patient is comfortable during the procedure.
