All about the Ultimate facelift Pro 

Combining the magical power of 7d HIFU and Fractional RF in one for the Ultimate Facelift.

What is the difference between HIFU and Fractional RF?



HIFU has been the star of the non surgical face lift for some time now. A fantastic alternative to  have an invasive surgical procedure and very little downtime. HIFU stands for ‘high intensity focused ultrasound’, and this clever treatment targets what’s known as the SMAS layer, which is the area that plastic surgeons will work with when carrying out a face lift. HIFU target this layer, which causes immediate contraction, dermal remodelling and a tightening and lifting effect.  It’s a great treatment on it’s own, and it often combined with RF Microneedling for the ultimate results. 


RF Microneedling 

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is the latest in advanced skin rejuvenation treatments. This falls in to the category of ‘non surgical facelifts’.  If you have seen Judy Murrays’ amazing transformation in Hello magazine (other media sources are available!) then you should know that RF microneedling was the technology behind her transformation!  

What can the Ultimate Pro facelift help with?

The best alternative to a non surgical facelift in one as well as the following:

* Ageing skin, wrinkles and fine lines, smokers lines, pigmentation, acne and surgical scars, loose, sagging and crepey skin, uneven skin tone and texture, milia, large pores, loss of facial volume, dull and luck-lustre skin, sculpting, jawline definition, double shin reduction, eyebrow lift, eye-bag reduction, hooded eyes, nasolabial folds, marionette lines.

How often before I see results?

Many of our clients report seeing a difference immediately, with a feeling of tightness in the skin, however its important to remember that you will need to allow time for the collagen and elastin to form and rebuild old and damaged cells. Typically, improvements are seen 2-6 weeks post session. Although results are visible after the first treatment, you’ll start to notice more significant changes in your skin, anything up to 3 months. 

What should I expect during and after the procedure?

The skin is firstly cleansed and toned with photos taken, so results can be compared at a later date. We then start with our HIFU 7 machine. As for the sensation during the treatment, it is generally considered to be tolerable. Some people may experience mild discomfort or a warm prickling sensation as the ultrasound energy is delivered to the targeted area1However, the level of discomfort can vary depending on individual pain tolerance and the specific area being treated. We then continue with Fractional RF, which will feel more relaxing, and generally a sucking sensation experienced all over with some mild heat. Immediately after treatment skin appears red and may feel sensitive and hot, similar to sunburn. This usually subsides over the next few hours however some mild swelling can occur and remain for 24 hours following treatment. We encourage you not to wear any make up 24 hours after the procedure and keep the skin dry and free of any chemicals during this time.

How often will I need these treatments?

Having the ultimate facelift pro is the best procedure to give you the most effective lifting treatment for ultimate results as the two treatments work very powerfully together. However HIFU and fractional RF can also be delivered separately. The difference being that HIFU delivers more precise and intense ultrasound energy to the SMAS layer, while RF works based on a bulk heating strategy. Therefore HIFU does not need to be performed as much as Fractional RF and may only require 1-2 treatments every 12-18 months. Fractional RF can be performed 3-4 times a year but has the benefit of working around a few areas which HIFU cannot, mainly being all around the mouth, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and eyelids and will also target pigmentation, scars, acne or pitted skin and open pores.
