HIFU therapy is used for cosmetic improvements, ultrasound beams are focused on a small region to be treated, and deposit significant energy at the focus, where local temperature rises at 65° and over, causing thermal damage.
The very small focus beam is delivered at the depth of millimetres in the tissue, with the beam having a characteristic “cigar” shape in the focal zone, where the beam is longer than it is wide, along the transducer axis. Tissue damage occurs as a function of both the temperature to which the tissue is heated and how long the tissue is exposed to this heat level, in a metric referred to as “thermal dose”. By focusing at more than one place or by scanning the focus, a volume can be thermally ablated. The thermal coagulation zones created by the ultrasonic energy, delivered to the targeted area, results in tissue contraction as well as collagen denaturation and neocollagenesis, ultimately tightening and lifting the skin. At NHC MEDSPA we will provide Hifu therapy in mill hill areas and north london .

HIFU stands for high intensity focused ultrasound and is an innovative, painless and non-invasive treatment that reverses the effects of ageing on your skin.
Highly concentrated ultrasound waves work safely to penetrate deep into the skin at the optimal temperature, which stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deep tissues of the face. The treatment initiates a natural process, known as necollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. HIFU does not involve any creams, fillers or toxins; relying on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
HIFU is a relatively new, non-surgical alternative to facelift. Ideal for the tightening, lifting and rejuvenation of facial skin. It is safe and effective and is a popular alternative to a surgical face lift to help improve lines and wrinkles.
HIFU facelift is the Most Promising Fully Non-invasive Treatment in 2018. HIFU treatment effectively tightens and lifts the skin of your face without any needles or scalpels.
Such lasers can make a greater difference in your skin replacing damaged skin from sun damage with healthier, new skin.
A high-intensity focused ultrasound procedure is a new technique approved by the FDA to remove prostate tissue. It is currently being used in clinical trials to treat prostate cancer.
Radio frequency waves also heat and tighten loose and saggy skin. This method works similarly to ultrasound technology, in that it uses heat to stimulate the production of important proteins within the skin.
HIFU uses the power of ultrasound to safely lift and tighten skin. HIFU, protects the skins surface, whilst precisely penetrating at deeper depths and higher temperatures than Radio Frequency for example, treating beyond the Dermis and Foundation layers, where structural weakening starts. Tissue at the target point is heated to 65°C.
Thermal Heat is created with the skin tissue creating both space wounds and cellular friction which in turn promotes healing, immediately contracts collagen and stimulate long-term tissue and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last up to years.
As a completely non-surgical, non-invasive procedure, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound offers patients many benefits over other procedures.

A consultation is carried out before any treatment takes process to help us assess your requirements and will help us understand what results you are looking for so we can find the perfect solution for you.
With HIFU, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment procedures.
Each session is dependent on the treatment area, but we advise around from 30 minutes to an hour per area. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements which will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation.
As the ultrasound technology is delivered you will feel tiny amounts of energy transferred to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
Results we can achieve with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound:
- Look years younger with one treatment
- Increase Blood Circulation
- Increases Elastin & Production of Collagen
- Rejuvenates Skin
- Double Chin Reduction
- Fine Lines & Wrinkle Reduction
- Scar & Stretch mark Reduction
Some results can be seen immediately post treatment, with optimum results expected from three to six months ( if the aesthetician recommend 3-5 years) .
Individual results will differ, however on average a minimum of 18 months or two years.
The number of sessions depends on the clients age and skin condition. One treatment is usually sufficient on light to moderate skin laxity.
