4D HIFU Non Surgical Facelift
“Is The Next Best Thing To Surgery”
Did you ever ..wanted your eyes to look more open, brows to be more lifted, fine lines softened, and jaw more defined?
If you don’t think you need surgery yet or simply hate the thought of the knife,4D HIFU can be the natural facelift or neck lift alternative you have been looking for!
What is the 4D HIFU Treatment ?
HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy to target the layers of skin just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up rapidly.
The targeted cells in the area reach a certain temperature that causes cellular damage. This damage causes imidiate tissue contraction due to the heat. This damage actually stimulates the cells to produce more collagen — a protein that provides structure to the skin.
The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles. Since the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there’s no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent issue.
Benefits of 4D HIFU Treatment ?
HIFU has many aesthetic benefits, including:
tightening sagging skin on the neck ( called turkey neck)
lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids
enhancing jawline definition
tightening of the décolletage
smoothing the skin
What esthetic concern can be treated using 4D HIFU?
Brow lifting, and drooping, forehead lifting
Fine lines and wrinkles
Mid face lifting
Nasolabial fold reduction
Jowl lifting, blurred jaw line
Neck (“turkey neck”)
Neck lifting and tightening loose neck folds
Overall skin tightening and rejuvenation
How long do the 3D-HIFU results last?
Most patients find results last over 1-1,5 year, which is pretty good from one treatment, although yearly touch-up maintenance treatments are recommended to stay ahead of the ageing process. Please always keep in mind that a good continuous at home skin care regimen and moisturizing treatments can enhance results and allow them to last longer.
What about side effects?
After the treatment you might see slight redness and/or swelling post-treatment, and might feel some tingling and tendernedd to touch. Few report on slight swelling, edema can occur when treating around the eyes. These will disappear within hours. While the results will not be as dramatic as with harsh surgical facelifts, 4D HIFU skin tightening is clinically proven to be safe, with natural and gradual rejuvenation effects.
People who have open lesions or wounds, cystic acne, existing keloid scarring, mechanical or dermal implants, skin fillers or other injectables, implanted electrical devices or metal implants in the face or treated area, pregnancy or breastfeeding, angiocardiopathy (heart), hypertension, liver and kidney diseases, skin disease, including AIDS & HIV, highly sensitive skin or allergic skin (including protein allergy) should not proceed with HIFU.
After care advice post HIFU treatment
There is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure.
The skin may be slightly pink or red in areas following the treatment, only use cool water when washing the face.
Expect that the treated area to feel sore to touch for up to 4 weeks.
Slight to mild swelling can occur – this is normal. Ice packs and a steroid cream can be applied to calm if necessary. If minor scabs appear avoid picking, allow the skin to heal.
Makeup (preferably mineral based) may be applied immediately post treatment. Soothing, non-irritating creams or moisturisers may be used.
Avoid sun exposure immediately after the treatment and apply minimum of 30+
Avoid exfoliating or products containing aha/bha’s for at least a week or until all sensitivity has subsided.
Avoid strenuous exercise/straining of the treated area(s) for 3-4 weeks. For the first 2 days post treatment don’t exert treated area however light exercise such as walking is fine.
Increase protein intake to boost the skin healing and collagen regeneration process.
Taking a vitamin c supplement is beneficial for collagen synthesis and is a vital nutrient for skin health.
Will I need more than one 4D HIFU treatment?
Our experience is that the majority of patients are happy with only one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen rebuilding process).
To keep up with the ageing process aditional treatments and active skincare products are required .

Who is ideal candidate for 4D HIFU treatment?
Before the treatment an initial consultation is needed to determine if you are candidate for this treatment and if so, a customized treatment plan is made for you maximizing benefits.
We recommend this treatment to our patients from the age of 30 to 60+ who has noticed some laxity on their face or neck skin and wishes to lift and tighten the mentioned areas.
For patients in their 30s it is typically used to stimulate collagen production and hence help delay the ageing process.
Patients in their 40s and 50s are the most common age group who have this treatment. It is also suitable for those aged 60+ if the present degree of laxity is not too great. It is also for those who have had surgery in the past to prolong the effects of surgical facelifts.
Younger, beauty-conscious patients who wish to get a head start on the collagen production game also benefit from ultrasound tightening.
HIFU works well with anyone with mild to moderate sagging or loosening skin.
Treatments can be performed on the full face and neck or specific areas as needed.
