HIFU non-surgical face lift is a great way of addressing the effects of skin ageing without the scalpel and the associated downtime.
Using a HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, device called the Ultraformer III, we are able to provide a far more comfortable alternative to the Ultherapy treatment while being as effective. The treatment we offer lasts between 30-60 minutes and has no downtime, causing only slight redness.
This non-surgical face lift works on the Muscle Fascia (SMAS) deep below the skin, which is the area surgeons tighten for face and neck lifts. Rather than surgery, the Ultraformer harnesses ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin. You can see the results immediately, and the improvements continue to be seen for up to nine months as your collagen is renewed.
Four multi-depth cartridges directly transfer ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the face to trigger collagen renewal, creating a tighter and younger complexion. MMFU (micro-macro focused ultrasound) technology transfers an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue, applying high-intensity focused ultrasound at temperatures of 65-75oC. This causes micro-coagulation and subcutaneous fat micro-reduction, which in turn creates the desired non-surgical face lift. The practitioner reviews the skin condition an uses the appropriate depth for each part of the face, including the smaller harder to treat areas like the eyes.
HIFU technology is completely safe and has been used in medicine for decades. It works by contracting and shortening muscle fibres, which cause the lifting and tightening effect.

The Aesthetics Lab unique Ultraformer III protocol which begins with a peel and LED light therapy to ensure the skin is optimally receptive to the treatment. After the LED treatment your aesthetician will apply a clear gel to the specified area and the treatment will begin. Up to four multi-depth cartridges directly transfer ultrasound energy into multiple layers of the face to trigger collagen renewal for tighter, younger complexion; while macro-focused cartridges transfer an equal distribution of ultrasound energy into the subcutaneous tissue of multiple body areas, inducing contractions as well as naturally disposing of stubborn fat cells for contouring purposes. During the procedure, you may notice a slight prickling sensation. Once the Ultraformer III procedure is complete, the gel will be removed and an SPF will be applied.
Following your Ultraformer III procedure, you will be able to continue with your day to day activities.
Once we remove the gel and you will notice an instant lift, which will continue to gradually improve over the following nine months.
