Laughter lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles – no matter what you call them, they can’t be avoided. Even an action as harmless as smiling could eventually lead to their appearance; however, hope is not lost. One of the most effective remedies available to treat these imperfections is undoubtedly HIFU treatment. Unfortunately, many people tend to avoid such treatments as they have been stereotypically classed as expensive and unnecessary – but trying to avoid wrinkles by permanently keeping a straight face simply cannot be the answer.
HIFU treatment is a remarkably quick and easy, non-invasive skin tightening treatment; so much so that when you’re done, you can simply wave goodbye to your cosmetic dermatologist and get straight back to your day.
At Lumina Aesthetics Clinic, our HIFU uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology to target multiple layers of the skin. When ultrasound waves are concentrated in the dermis layer of the skin, the production of collagen is stimulated. As a result, the skin becomes tighter and wrinkles are smoothed
The benefits of HIFU, non surgical facelift don’t end there – the treatment is also highly effective for lower-face skin tightening and jawline lifting.

How Does HIFU Facial Treatment Work?
During the procedure, focused ultrasound energy is used to lift the muscule and tighten the skin. The ultrasound generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin. HIFU stimulates the creation of collagen that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed, toned and elastic. This is the highest level of non-surgical technology available. HIFU be combined with other treatments. For the best lifting effect it is often used with Thread facelift to give an optimum result.
Why Consider HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift?
The ultra sound works in the deep layers of the skin to naturally produce collagen and fibroblast to tighten the skin, reduce skin sagging and reverse skin damage. All this without any downtime.
From the age of 30 the Ageing process really begins and the HIFU Facelift turns back time. HIFU can be used on the Face and Neck. Our Full Face HIFU lift includes lifting of the eyebrows, frown lines and crows feet, cheek lifting, nasolabial fold lifting, chin and jaw tightening.

HIFU is completely safe and has been used in medicine for decades.
You need to understand this to really see how HIFU will work for you. HIFU creates thermal wounds to the skin in the deep layers. You’re body instantly gets the message to start the healing process of the skin. This is where the real magic happens. When the healing phase is kickstarted in the body fibroblast activity is produced which in turns promotes more collagen production. Collagen is the secret weapon to young youthful healthy skin. We recommend starting this treatment early on and continuing along side your other treatments such as injectables, mesotherapy, PRP to keep in youthful optimal condition.
You can definitely get better definition of the jawline, mid face and neck lifting, because the HIFU tightens and lifts the skin. Neck and jawline lifting and tightening has become a popular choice for clients wanting to contour and regain youth to their face.
HIFU can deliver amazing transformational results, but only in the right hands. At your consultation you will be assessed to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure and there’s no contraindications to the treatment. Our technicians are highly trained in selecting the correct parameters to deliver the best results. Accurately measuring the skin and selecting the correct cartridge size for different areas of the face is extremely important to the success of the treatment.
Is it true that after 1 session of HIFU we will have the results we want?
Let’s get to the bottom of the truth here. Do not expect that immediately after your HIFU you will see results. This is not a face lift surgery procedure. Although having said that you will see the skin looks refreshed with increased blood circulation and look lifted. The way HIFU works is building natural collagen in the skin. Now think about this, building fibroblast activity which in turn builds collagen takes time. The process of collagen build up can take 4-6 months. Your skin will start improving from month 4 and you will continue to see subtle changes. The fine lines will be improved, and the facial skin will be more contoured and tighter. We recommend another session to improve the skin further. Remember skin improvement happens in stages that’s why with any treatment you require up to 3 sessions to give you the maximum results.
Our patients love HIFU as its easily combinable with other anti-ageing treatments and HIFU is one of the best treatments to prevent further ageing of the skin. Let’s face it prevention is better than cure.
What treatment can HIFU be combined with?
HIFU is perfect alongside other anti-ageing treatments such as Profhilo moisturising injectable treatment, PRP facial, Vampire facial. HIFU works great before having Dermal fillers and Anti-wrinkle injections and even Thread lift. In this case we recommend having the HIFU first to kick start the collagen production in the skin and then come in for your Dermal fillers, Anti -wrinkle injections or Threads. If you’re after amazing transformation this would be our recommendation. That’s why we love HIFU, it’s a great pre -treatment to other Aesthetic Ageing procedures.
