Have you heard of HIFU??

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound- HIFU

New service provided by Lori.  It is a non-invasive facelift and can help with:

  • wrinkle reduction
  • tightening sagging skin on the neck (sometimes called turkey neck)
  • lifting the cheeks, eyebrows and eyelids
  • enhancing jaw line definition
  • tightening of the décolletage
  • smoothing the skin
  • Can improve skin elasticity on most parts of the body after 12 weeks.

See information by front desk. A free consultation is required prior to first treatment.  The facial treatments are done in 2 sessions.  Half payment 1st session and final payment 2nd session done 1 month apart.  

It's considered a safe, effective, and non-invasive procedure for tightening the facial skin.  Its advantages over a surgical face lift are hard to deny. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. It's also far less expensive than a face lift.

Most people see full results 3 months after their final treatment.

If you’re looking for a treatment that is quick, painless, and non-invasive, HIFU is an excellent option compared to a surgical face lift.

Of course, it isn’t a miracle cure for aging. The procedure is best suited for patients with mild-to-moderate skin laxity, and you may need to have the procedure repeated in one to two years as the natural aging process takes over.

While it carries far fewer risks and costs than a surgical face lift, results may not last as long and repeated procedures may be needed.

Studies found that improvement in appearance persisted for at least 6 months. You will likely need to have additional treatments once the natural aging process takes over.


If you’re older with more severe skin sagging and wrinkles, it may not be able to eliminate these skin issues.

    Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin laxity, or very sagging skin on the neck aren't good candidates and may need surgery.

    What is unique about this procedure?

    It is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

    It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.

    Is HIFU surgery?

    No, it is a non-surgical procedure that targets the skin and support layers below it without cutting or disrupting the skin’s surface at all.


    Is there any downtime?

    It is an entirely non-invasive procedure and as such, there is no downtime. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.

    Is HIFU safe?

    The procedure has been shown to be safe in several clinical studies, and tens of thousands of treatments performed already worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record in various disciplines of medicine for more than 50 years.  This modality was originally used to treat cancer tumors.  

    Will I feel the ultrasound during the treatment?

    Yes. What you are feeling during the treatment is actually tiny amounts of focused ultrasound energy being deposited below the skin’s surface.

    Some patients note some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, however, comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient.  There can be some discomfort while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Feels like a "pinch".  The "feeling" is more on body treatments than on facial treatments. 

    How long does it take to see results?

    HIFU results are both instant and progressive. Most clients will see approximately 15 – 20% noticeable difference instantly, with progressive improvements occurring over the following 9 – 12 months. The most noticeable results are usually seen between 8 – 12 weeks after the procedure, depending on the individual

    Body Contouring Disclaimer


    ·         HIFU is not a weight loss treatment and does not replace the benefits of proper diet and exercise. It does NOT treat obesity.

    ·         The ideal candidate for HIFU is for a person who is mildly above ideal weight, and cannot shift stubborn pockets of fat. 

    ·         HIFU is ideal for sculpting smaller areas, and the candidate should be within 10-20 pounds of their ideal weight range. 

    ·         Generally, anywhere between 3 to 5 treatments per area are recommended, however, some clients see results after a single treatment. 3 treatments can be done 1 week apart, 4th treatment, if needed, will be performed at least 20 days from 3rd treatment.  

    ·         As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long term results should remain stable. 

    ·         Results can be seen from 2 to 3 months post treatment. 

    ·         The average amount of fat reduction of the treatment area varies from person to person and depends on how your body responds to the procedure. 

    ·         It’s important to note that these treatments continue to work as they are working with your body’s own natural elimination process. 

    ·         Not every patient will be an ideal candidate for HIFU body sculpting. It is important to book a complimentary consultation.
