High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), otherwise known as a non-surgical facelift, mini facelift, or ultralift, is a non-invasive face lifting procedure. The treatment uses ultrasound waves to tighten the skin and promote the renewal of collagen. This results in a more youthful appearance for the face and neck.
If a client wants to treat a larger area, the price can be reduced.
HIFU is often effective after the first procedure. But once the first treatment has been completed, it can take 3 to 6 months for the full impact to be seen. This is because it takes time for new collagen to be produced. However, many clients see early results straight away. The full effect usually lasts between 3 months and a year. Clients often prolong the results with treatments on a yearly basis.
The HIFU process uses an ultrasound probe to target deep layers of skin. Energy waves are directed below the skin’s surface, avoiding the sensitive surface. The procedure promotes the development of new collagen protein. The result is a safe, affordable skin lifting treatment with almost zero pain. None of the surface area is affected. This is because the treatment focuses entirely on the deep layers of the skin. However, some clients experience a mild soreness. However, this soon goes away.
People who have face or neck sagging, or notice wrinkles forming are generally suitable for a HIFU non-surgical facelift. Typically, clients are aged 30 years and above. The most common ages for treatment are 40 and 50 years old. Even older clients can benefit from NIFU, depending on the amount of sagging. A consultation with an accredited HIFU practitioner will be able to assess suitability for treatment.
Clients can benefit from a HIFU ultralift in different ways. Lifting of the cheeks, wrinkle reduction, and a more youthful appearance is common after treatment. But many clients also report improved confidence and a more positive outlook on life. Additional benefits include an affordable, non-surgical option, and zero recovery time after treatment.
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive skin lifting treatment, primarily designed for the face and neck. The procedure uses ultrasound waves to target deep layers of the skin. This results in a more youthful, firmer appearance and reduction of sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. The process also promotes the production of collagen, a vital protein for maintaining the appearance of skin.
The treatment length varies from person to person. It depends on the body areas being treated and the nature of the client. However, most HIFU procedures take approximately 30 to 90 minutes.
There is hardly any pain. Clients sometimes report a tingling sensation during treatment. But this is normal and never painful. Areas with bones can become slightly sore. HIFU treatment is non-invasive and not painful for the vast majority of clients.
In most cases, there is no recovery time after HIFU treatment. The majority of clients can leave the clinic and continue as usual. Even cosmetics can be applied within 15 to 30 minutes after the procedure being carried out.
Some clients experience minor soreness or redness after the procedure. Others mention slight swelling or a tingly sensation. Any minor side effects soon go away.
The full extent of results can be seen 3 months after treatment. However, clients often see an immediate impact (15% to 20% of the full result). As more collagen is produced, the skin will become firmer over a period of months. Most clients can expect to see results up to 6 months after the initial treatment.
It is typical to see results last for at least 1 year or more. However, extra treatments are often required on a yearly basis to maintain standards. Results vary from person to person. This depends on many factors, such as lifestyle, age, skin condition, etc.
HIFU is non-surgical. No anesthetics, cutting, or invasive techniques are used during the procedure. This is a key reason why many clients seek treatment.
HIFU is a popular option for clients who want a non-invasive method to improve the appearance of skin. The treatment does not provide the same lasting results as a facelift. But it works well for clients on a budget or who want to avoid surgery.
It is common to see an improvement in skin tightness and a more youthful appearance. Since new collagen is produced during HIFU, the skin effectively becomes renewed. Many clients report positive improvements in skin condition around the brow, neck, mid face, and nasolabial fold.
Many clients have HIFU treatment once. But since the results tend to last 1 year, it is also common for people to have treatments on a yearly basis. This depends on the client’s response and amount of collagen produced during the interim period.
Many clients combine HIFU with other procedures. This often works well to enhance results. A typical example is the use of other non-surgical facelift techniques, such as Silhouette Soft. Numerous topical treatments can also be used alongside HIFU.

The NIFU mini facelift can treat a variety of facial and neck areas, delivering noticeable, affordable results for clients. The face is perhaps the most popular area of choice. The treatment can provide non-invasive lifting of the brows, mid face, and jowl. But many clients also use HIFU for treatment on the neck and lower chin.
Besides the face and neck, the procedure can treat the arms, legs, thighs, stomach, knee area, and back fat. HIFU does not treat nasolabial folds (laughter lines). However, it can provide lifting around these areas to reduce their prominence.
Clients rarely report any pain during or after the procedure. This is because NIFU treatments are non-invasive and require zero cutting, unlike surgical face lifts. No anesthetic is required and most clients experience only mild discomfort.
Many people say they can see results immediately after treatment. Often, a 15% to 20% improvement can be viewed straight away. However, it may be beneficial to have follow up NIFU treatment a year after for maximum impact.
NIFU face lifts are more affordable and safer than surgical face lifts. For the face alone, the costis 1690 AED per treatment. Under the chin is priced at 2100 AED, while the neck is 2800 AED. Other parts of the body cost 1800 AED.
During the consultation, the client will undergo a skin examination. This enables the practitioner to assess whether HIFU treatment is suitable. Other treatment options may also be explored, such as microneedling or PRP. The client will have the opportunity to ask questions prior to treatment. It is worth noting that the qualified HIFU practitioner will only recommend the procedure if they feel the client will gain benefits.Book A Consultation With Elite Style Polyclinic
