HIFU High Intensity Focused Ultrasound – Eye Contour
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also known as HIFU is the revolutionary new lifting treatment for skin tightening and redefining the facial contours. It is effective in reducing the appearance of sagginess, loss of firmness and wrinkles and is applicable for the eye contour, lip contour, cheeks, forehead or neck and jawline.
HIFU uses the power of ultrasound to stimulate the skin, assisting in the restoration of dermal tissue resulting in a smoother and lifted appearance.
It has no downtime
Keeps working inside the skin for 6 months
How it works
HIFU activates the building of new collagen fibres in the deep layers of the dermal tissue by using ultrasound stimulation and create a grid of controlled microdamage, which forms tighter, lifted skin during the healing process. After the treatment, the proliferation of new dermal tissue occurs over a period of 6 months.
Gives a plumped appearance to the skin
Effective for improving dark circles
Long lasting results
Reaches the deepest layers of the dermis. Deeper than Lasers, Radio frequency or even needling.
Reaches depths of the skin only previously reachable with surgery.
Who is suitable for treatment?
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is best applied to people aged 30 and above. This is because the skin’s collagen starts to weaken at age 30 and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is aimed at rebuilding collagen and effectively lifting the skin.
HIFU is suitable for treating loss of firmness, the appearance of wrinkles and visible sagging in the skin. It can also be applied for the improvement of dark circles.
HIFU treatments have no downtime after the procedure. Mild redness can occur, however, it dissipates quickly. There is no skin sensitivity or irritation after the procedure. A mild sore sensation or numbness can occur for approximately 1 week after the procedure, usually when pressure is applied to the area. This is due to the dermal work that occurs during HIFU.
Avoid peels, dermal treatments and fillers for a minimum of one month after HIFU or as recommended by your therapist.
Always apply sun protection cream to ensure the skin remains in good condition.
Follow the treatment instructions of your therapist after the procedure. It is important to have an effective skincare routine aimed at the proliferation of new collagen and healing. Vitamin rich active serums are essential for the best results and provide nutrition to the skin for improved healing and collagen formation.
Avoid using hot water, saunas and heat to the area treated.
Avoid exfoliation for 2 days.

Pregnancy and breast feeding
What to expect after the treatment
How long does it take for collagen to build?
After the treatment stimulates collagen synthesis, the process for the dermal layer to build takes a period of 3 to 6 months. For a full result, this process can take up to a full year. Repeated sessions are recommended every 6 to 12 months.
How long do I need to wait between treatments?
A minimum of 6 months is required between HIFU sessions in order for the collagen to be fully formed. Follow up treatments are recommended between 3 and 6 months.
Smoking severely affects the skin’s regenerative ability. Adequate wound healing and collagen production cannot occur when someone is smoking. For this reason, the results from HIFU treatment may be limited when smoking.
HIFU skin tightening relies on the body’s ability to heal itself to induce new collagen formation. For this reason, those with impaired healing conditions are advised to avoid this dermal treatment.
