HIFU Before and After

HIFU before and after pictures are pretty impressive, but the magic really happens weeks after treatment!

My lovely client kindly agreed for me to share her photos, which are just fabulous.  This HIFU before and after picture is actually a combination of IPL illumiFacial and HIFU.  My client had two illumiFacials for sun damage, and this photo was taken just 4 weeks after her first HIFU facial.  Pretty impressive isn’t it. 

The beauty of HIFU, which is a non-surgical face lift treatment, is that the results continue for around 12-16 weeks after treatment. You’ll typically have 2-3 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart, and then maintenance every 1-2 years (sadly, we can’t stop the aging process, we can only maintain it). 


HIFU treatment in progress

The HIFU before and after pictures are pretty impressive, so how does it work? 

It’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of treatments that stimulate your skin to produce fresh collagen and elastin, in response to a very minor, controlled trauma. I like to this it’s tricking your skin into doing it what it was fabulously good at doing in your early twenties! It’s baffling to think that your skin slows down it’s collagen and elastin production (responsible for that youthful, plump skin) from your mid to late twenties – just at the point that life gets really good – in crashes mother nature with a blow like this! 

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It works by targeting the skin at different levels, heating it to around 65 degrees. In response to this thermal trauma, your skin products fresh collagen and elastin, and also contracts and tightens in response to the treatment.  The overall results is tighter, firmer and more lifted skin – even after just one treatment!

One of the many great things about HIFU is that it carries on working, long after you’ve had your treatment. In fact, if you compared HIFU before and after results immediately after and then 1 month, 3 month and 6 months later – you’ll be delighted to see that you’ll continue to see improvements. I always recommend that you take photos, so you can see your progress, because it can be hard to notice when you look in the mirror every day!

HIFU Before and After - How does it feel?

If you looked at HIFU before and after pictures, immediately after treatment, then I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

There’s nothing scary and it’s one of the reasons it’s been termed the ‘lunchtime face lift’! Nobody would know you’ve had anything done.  The treatment isn’t painful, you may just experience a little tingling in some areas. The clever team at Lynton, who created the Focus Dual, have introduced a fancy targeted transducer, that helps to focus the ultrasound in the exact depths of your skin, reducing heating and irritation to the surface of your skin. 

You can see there there is an immediate effect, where your skin responds to the initial treatment, but this is just the beginning. It’s only the start of the transformation.  Compare your HIFU before and after pictures over the coming weeks, as see your true results at up to 6 months after treatment. 

You’ll typically need 1-3 treatments, 4-8 weeks apart, with maintenance every 1-2 years. How simple is that!

HIFU and Radiofrequency Microneedling - The perfect pair

HIFU and radiofrequency microneedling are the perfect pair.  You have the amazing lifting and tightening effect of HIFU, combined with the incredible RF microneedling – which is great for treating lines & wrinkles, improving skin tone and also has a lifting and tightening effect.  This is why Lynton’s Focus Dual system has both hand pieces in it’s fabulous system. These really are the ultimate non-surgical face lift treatments. 

There isn’t a one size fits all program. We will work together to target your skin concerns and decide which treatments are best suited for your skin needs and goals. Often a combined approach is the most effective, and my clients love the illumiFacial IPL photofacial to treat their sun damage, for a truly amazing result!
