• Prior to treatment you will be invited in for a consultation, this can be done virtually, to discuss the areas you would like to treat, and the reasons for doing so. During this time, we will explain the treatment/ treatment plan in detail ensuring you fully understand the procedure.
• If you wish to go ahead with the treatment, we will cleanse the treatment area
• The handpiece will then be placed on the skin in the target area directly on the skin. If you select to undergo HIFU treatment, the area will be marked in order to define the areas for treatment.
• Once the treatment is complete, post-treatment serums and SPF is applied to help soothe the skin and aid recovery.
• Full results can be seen 12 weeks after the final treatment

Safety Assist Transducers (SAT), unique to the Focus Dual, emit high intensity ultrasound waves in a unique pattern that allows for safer and more comfortable treatments for ALL skin types.
What makes Focus Dual HIFU unique?
Deep in the skin is the SMAS layer, this is the layer a surgeon will physically lift in a facelift, being so deep it’s difficult to target with non-surgical treatments- until now! Focus Dual HIFU face lift creates deep focus points of coagulative necrosis, in the SMAS layer through heat zones. These heat zones kickstart the production of collagen and elastin, natural proteins needed for youthful looking skin.
The SMAS layer is immediately contracted without damage to the skin surface or surrounding tissues, this creates immediate tightening and lifting. As the skin’s wound healing response is triggered the skin naturally lifts, firms, and tightens over time. You will see that results continue to improve up to 12 weeks post treatment. Our HIFU technology can be adjusted to a range a depths, depending on your level of concern to reduce lines and wrinkles, crepeyness, laxity and excess fat.
In terms of results you can expect real changes that lift, firm and tighten jawlines, sculpt cheekbones, reduce under eye bags and lift brow areas. All in all, there is nothing better to give your skin back it’s SNAP!
Additionally, this innovative device utilises focused ultrasound waves to define, sculpt and reduce. This non-surgical fat reduction and skin tightening treatment focuses energy at specific depths into the subcutaneous fat layer, to disrupt stubborn fat cells without damaging non-targeted areas. The treated cells are then flushed away via the body’s natural detoxification processes. Furthermore, the heat generated during the treatment tightens the skin from the inside out. Focus Dual is the ideal treatment if you are looking to target multiple concerns with virtually no downtime. Focus Dual HIFU treatment should be used to complement a healthy lifestyle.
What is High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU)?
Due to the non-invasive nature of HIFU treatments, there is virtually no downtime. You may experience slight redness following the treatment, and a small percentage of our clients do experience minor swelling, tingling or tenderness. These symptoms are mild and temporary.
You will be able to return to your normal activities straight away, and there are no special recovery measures needed. This is why HIFU has earned the name “lunchtime face lift”.
Is there any downtime with a HIFU treatment?
Results can usually be seen immediately, but the results get better and better up to 12 weeks post treatment as your collagen is renewed.
We expect results to last 1-2 years, but this can be dependent on lifestyle and maintenance.
How long will it take for me to see results?
Treatments are carried out every 4-6 weeks and typically between 1 and 3 treatments are recommended for best results. Top-up sessions are performed as required, but usually only once or twice a year.
How many sessions will I need?
You may experience some mild heating or a slight tingling sensation during treatment. Patients describe this as moderate and acceptable.
What does the treatment feel like?
This non-surgical face lift works on the SMAS layer deep below the skin, which is the area surgeons tighten for face and neck lifts. Rather than surgery, the Focus Dual harnesses ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin.
How does a HIFU facial treatment work?
Give skin back its snap… High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also known as ‘HIFU’, ‘non-surgical face lift’, ‘lunchtime face lift’ or ‘Focus Dual’ has become one of the most sought-after lifting, firming, and tightening treatments for face and neck. HIFU uses Focused Ultrasound to target the deep structural layers of the skin with heat, which it does without damaging the skin’s surface. Focus Dual HIFU is one of the few treatments that can reach the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS)—which was previously accessible only via surgery. The result is a natural lift with virtually no downtime. The heat generated in the skin stimulates the cells to produce strong, new collagen and kick-start dormant collagen. As collagen production increases up to 12 weeks post treatment, this results in a more youthful and refreshed look.
Collagen is important for skin health because it is a natural protein that promotes skin suppleness, firmness, hydration, and a youthful glow. Unfortunately, collagen production begins to dwindle as we age. A HIFU Facial lifts, tightens, and firms up loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity. With Focus Dual we can lift, firm, tighten, and sculpt the face, brow, neck and jawline. Areas such as the chest, hands and other parts of the skin and body can also be treated. This treatment will not only give skin back its snap, but it will also naturally kick-start your body to increase the production of collagen and elastin to reduce signs of ageing.
