HIFU: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound


Here at Swann Beauty, we offer a range of beauty treatments for the face, body, and hair. Always on the lookout for new and innovative beauty treatments to suit our different clients, we have taken on HIFU, or High-Intensity Frequency Ultrasound.

Also known as an ‘Ultrasound Facelift’, HIFU has quickly become of the most popular treatments for lifting the face and neck, leaving clients with the tighter and firmer skin they’re after.

What is HIFU?

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment uses an ultrasound device to tighten and lift skin, to create a fuller and firmer look. Mainly used for the face – around the jawline, neck, and upper face areas – HIFU is a non-surgical alternative to the well-known face lift.

By using ultrasound technology, you will achieve a natural and non-surgical lift and pull to your skin with the benefits of no scarring, no bruising, no pain, and no recovery time needed. The results are totally natural, which is why it’s such a popular facial treatment with people all around the world.

It’s typically a one-time treatment, with one session delivering visible effects to your skin and helping to create new collagen, giving you an all-round healthy and youthful glow.

Who uses HIFU?

As a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that relies on ultrasound technology, HIFU is suited to patients who have mild to moderate sagging of the facial tissues. HIFU is a natural process so its results vary from person to person, depending on a variety of factors such as skin type.

This face-lifting and neck-tightening technology boasts the previously mentioned benefits, such as no bruising or down-time. This means you can undergo the treatment with minimal effect to your day-to-day life.

What to expect

The reason that HIFU treatment is so popular is that it offers noticeable results to the look of skin on your face and neck without the need of surgery. The ultrasound technology will focus on target areas beneath your skin’s surface to pull and lift the skin, aiding the production of new collagen to promote the tightening effect too.

To see the full results of this ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ requires time, but they can have lasting effects. As we’ve already said, results will vary from person to person. However, by following our professional aftercare advice for the treatment, it will help to achieve the best possible results for you.
