HIFU for the Body

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is a non-invasive medical procedure that uses ultrasound waves to target and reduce fat cells in specific areas of the body. It is also referred to as HIFU fat reduction.

During a HIFU fat reduction treatment, a handheld device emits high-intensity ultrasound waves that penetrate through the skin to reach the underlying fat cells. The ultrasound waves generate heat, causing thermal coagulation of the fat cells. This heat disrupts the cell membrane of the fat cells, leading to their destruction.

The destroyed fat cells are then gradually metabolized and eliminated from the body through natural processes over a period of several weeks to months following the treatment. The surrounding tissues, including the skin and underlying structures, are generally unharmed during the procedure.

HIFU fat reduction is primarily used for body contouring and targeted fat reduction in specific areas such as the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, buttocks, and upper arms. It is not considered a weight loss method but rather a means of reducing localized fat deposits and improving the overall appearance of these areas.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of HIFU fat reduction can vary from person to person

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is also commonly used for skin tightening treatments. HIFU skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes focused ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. 

The focused ultrasound waves cause controlled thermal injury in the targeted areas, which triggers a wound-healing response in the body. This response includes the production of new collagen, a protein that provides structural support to the skin. Over time, the increased collagen production helps to tighten and lift the skin, reducing sagging and improving overall firmness.

Benefits of HIFU Body Treatment

HIFU treatment for the body is a non-invasive solution for fat loss and skin tightening.

Typically, after one treatment, HIFU can help to reduce 20-40% of localised fat in your body.

This non-invasive, no-needles treatment is a kinder and cheaper alternative to Liposuction, with no downtime or anesthetic required.

Unlike Liposuction, which is associated with a risk of numerous complications, HIFU is a safer approach that involves the use of high-intensity focused ultrasonography (HIFU) instead of incisions.


  • Destroys fat cells
  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite
  • Smoothens out skin texture
  • Tightens and firms your skin
  • Increases skin elasticity
  • Offers long-lasting results
  • Improvement in appearance and overall confidence
  • Safe, effective, and non-invasive
  • Offers natural results with no downtime required
  • Stimulates skin rejuvenation
  • Increases blood circulation

Results you can expect with HIFU Body Treatment

HIFU targets the treated area with high-focused ultrasound technology penetrating beneath the skin’s surface to destroy localised fat cells, stimulate collagen production and rejuvenation of your tissues. 

With the HIFU treatment, results are gradual, the full results will be seen at 12 weeks after the treatment. And this will continue to improve for 6 months.

You can expect your results to last for 18 months to 3 years before you need to book in for a top-up treatment.

Over time you can expect to experience smoother, brighter, and firmer skin.

The results of the HIFU Facelift treatment are very similar to a surgical facelift but without any anesthesia, incisions, stitches, or downtime to recover.

Unlike surgery which sometimes has an unnatural feel to it, HIFU is great because it offers natural results.

HIFU works well to enhance your natural beauty, providing a subtle but noticeable difference.

Expect a youthful-looking effect.

With friends and family asking “Wow have you lost weight or been on holiday?”

HIFU is great for tightening your skin in common concern areas such as jowls, cheeks, chin, eyes, and brows.

HIFU also enhances your cheekbones and jawline which refreshes your appearance and opens the face.

Results are gradual, the full results will be seen at 12 weeks after the treatment. And this will continue to improve for 6 months.

You can expect your results to last for 12-18 months before you need to book in for a top-up treatment.


"I had heard really good things about the HIFU facial, I'd seen it advertised in magazine articles!

I weighed up the surgical vs. non-surgical versions of a facelift and I'm so happy I opted for the non-surgical HIFU. I was told beforehand it can be an uncomfortable treatment, and it was, but maybe 20 mins post-treatment I was fine, which would not be the case if I opted for surgical! I had a little tenderness for about 3 days, but only when I touched my face, but completely manageable. The results are fantastic! The staff were great! I was a little nervous before the treatment started but I didn't need to be!

I'm really now really intrigued about the HIFU for body as well now!"

Does HIFU help people to lose weight?

HIFU treatment isn’t used as a weight loss solution but does help clients alongside their weight loss journey.

What does HIFU achieve for the body?

HIFU is a great treatment for reducing unwanted pockets of fat on the body.

It uses focused ultrasound energy to destroy the subcutaneous fat cells and to tighten the skin.

It is particularly effective on small stubborn pockets of fat such as underneath the chin, the back, the back of the arms, the outer thighs, and the stomach.

HIFU treatment also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and works well alongside our Vacuum Roller Therapy.

Will I experience pain or discomfort when I have my HIFU treatment?

A warm tingling or prickly sensation may be felt during the treatment which may be uncomfortable. A cooling gel is applied prior to the treatment to minimise discomfort, and soft cool packs can be applied after the treatment. As this treatment is Non-Invasive, unlike surgery, HIFU is a better alternative if you are concerned about pain levels.

HIFU Face & Neck

HIFU is not a suitable treatment for everyone but is most commonly recommended to people once they have reached their 40s.

We can however recommend HIFU for people in their 30s who are showing signs of mild to moderate skin laxity.

Is the HIFU Facelift Treatment painful?

The Non-Surgical HIFU Facelift treatment does cause a degree of discomfort in most. It is usually more tender around the bones of the face, and less uncomfortable on softer and fleshier areas. The discomfort experienced is generally described as a hot prickly sensation with a mild ache around the jawline.

Can numbing cream be used to minimise discomfort?

A topical numbing cream may be applied before the treatment but is usually largely ineffective due to the HIFU targeting the deepest layers of the skin.

How long does the HIFU treatment take and when will I start to see results?

The HIFU treatment takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the areas treated. Some people notice an immediate tightening effect after the treatment, but it usually takes up to 12 weeks to see the full effects.

Will I need more than one session?

The Non-Surgical HIFU Facelift is a single-session treatment, with the results lasting between 12 months to 3 years.
