Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a course of treatments?
In most cases only one treatment is required. Additional treatments may be required to successfully treat advanced ageing. A second treatment can be performed 3 /6 months after your first session.
Do I need to maintain the results?
Patients treated with HIFU still have fresh, young collagen after a years time following the procedure, but future touch up treatments can help keep pace with the ageing process, which varies by individual.
Is HIFU safe?
Yes! HIFU is the only FDA cleared non-surgical facelift treatment available. In fact it is so safe, HIFU is used medically to treat some cancers.
Will I see results straight away?
20% of your overall result will be seen immediately with the remaining 80% being seen within 6 months of treatment.
Are there side effects?
There may be a slight redness for up to a few hours following the treatment, and a small percentage of clients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Does it hurt?
HIFU does not cause major discomfort. You may feel some discomfort, warmth or heat sensation or even a slight pain that lasts less than a few seconds and only during the pulsation cycle when ultrasound energy is being applied. The discomfort is very brief and a good sign that the collagen building process has begun.
