HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift
Consultation 020 8031 6668
What is a HIFU non-surgical facelift?
A Non-surgical facelift treatment uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin and creates lift by stimulating new collagen and elastins formation. This not only improves the texture and surface of the skin but can lift and tighten unwanted sagging areas on the face and neck.
The skin tightening and rejuvenation treatment creates more contour on the face and improves the jawline. This revolutionary skin-lifting treatment is safe and gentle for both men and women. The cosmetic treatment uses time-tested focused ultrasound energy to revitalise tissues in the face and neck.
HIFU Treatment Areas
What are the benefits of a HIFU facelift?
- Increased elasticity of the skin and the ‘snap-back effect’ as texture, tone and skin quality is improved.
- Tightens and chisels the jawline creating a lift to combating sagging areas – targets face & neck.
- Can reduce unwanted pockets of fat, like jowls or submental fat (double chin).
- Minimal side effects and instant results, which improve over 3-6 months.
- No risks associated with cosmetic surgery and surgical facelifts.
How does a non-surgical facelift work?
This advanced technology can create a lift not only in the skin but also the deeper muscle layers, which was previously only reached by a surgical facelift.
The HIFU emits focused ultrasound energy to stimulate the skins deep support structures (epidermis, dermis and deep dermis layers).
By causing micro-trauma at the three different skin layers, the heat causes revitalisation and stimulates new collagen to form, in a single treatment.
HIFU also stimulates the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from deep within.
What to expect from my treatment?
The treatment is straightforward and takes around 50 minutes. Your face will be mapped out by our lead aesthetician, targeting your areas of concern.
Ultrasound gel will then be applied, and the treatment will start. You will feel the heat and a mild tingling sensation as the device is moved over the skin.
It can feel like a hot elastic band on your skin, and should only be minimally uncomfortable. Your aesthetician can go slowly and reduce the intensity if you feel any discomfort.
There are no side effects to this treatment other than slight tenderness in the area treated for a week after coming to Look Lovely London. Rarely mild puffiness can be reported as new collagen is forming, but there is no down-time.
A patient can resume normal activities directly after the procedure. You will see results straight away after a single treatment, but then your face will continue to improve and evolve with tightening over the next few months.
We offer a review and a free to-up at 12 weeks to optimise your results – this is unique to our clinic as we aim to provide the best possible results.

At 60 Eva had been struggling with her neck becoming saggier with prominent horizontal lines. She felt self-conscious about her profile and felt it was ageing. She wanted a lift and a contour of her neckline.
The recommendation was the Ultraformer III to target the deep and superficial layers of the neck to improve her skin texture and tighten the area.
She had 2 treatments three months apart. The photo was directly after her second treatment.
Eva now has a smoother neck with fewer grooves and lines, and her contour has also improved.
The treatment has broken down some of the fatty layers in the neck with were creating sagging and a heavy look around the chin and jaw.
I feel like I have my neck back to how it looked in my early 50’s. It’s boosted my confidence and I now love wearing pretty necklaces as I feel comfortable with my neck and decollage. The clinic provided sound advice, good treatment and brilliant follow-up care.
HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift FAQs
The length of your results depends on the skin quality and underlining structures of your face. Good results can be seen straight away and last on average for 18-24 months.
The best non-surgical facelifts are the ones that are carried out by fully trained aesthetician with years of experience. Our aesthetician has been doing non-surgical facelifts for over a decade and has a wealth of knowledge on how to achieve lovely results.
Our device is brand new, FDA approved and industry-leading. Always be wary of clinics offering cheap deals with mobile handheld devices. The results can be disappointing. At Look Lovely London we offer first-class care and outstanding follow-up to ensure you are entirely happy.
Both treatments are the non-surgical facelift which creates contouring and skin tightening. The Ultraformer and Ultherapy are brand names for the devices uses.
Both devices are industry-leading however the Ultraformer III takes half the time to deliver the same amount of shots. Therefore the procedure is quicker taking only 45 minutes for the whole face, being more comfortable.
The Ultraformer also has an additional smaller handpiece that offers a targeted treatment around the eyes and mouth. This is a great benefit as a precise treatment can be offered for those struggling with sagging around the eyes or smoker’s lines.
Results can be seen with one treatment if carried out with an industry-leading device and fully trained aesthetician. Some patients opt for a second treatment 3 months apart to optimise their results.
At the clinic, we offer packages with a top-up at the 3-month mark included in the price. This ensures you get the best possible result.
Non-surgical face lifts are a great alternative to invasive procedures to create a lift, contour and rejuvenate the skin. The results are more gradual and subtle than a complete surgical face lift. However, at Look Lovely London we really believe non-surgical treatments work. There is no down-time or risks involved if carried out by a fully trained aesthetician.
Results vary from person to person depending on your skin quality and how much sagging has occurred. We offer a free consultation at the clinic to give you a realistic opinion around if the non-surgical facelift will work for you. We have had superb results at our clinic using the Ultraformer III and have many before and after photos to show you. However, if we feel a surgical face lift is the better option for you we give honest advice and never over-sell.
If you look in the mirror and wish you could just lift your skin and face back to how it was 5 years ago, this makes you a great candidate for the HIFU. If you are struggling with sagging skin, loss of jaw contour, or jowls the treatment can tighten and lift these areas making you look and feel better. With the added benefit of skin rejuvenation and reduction of fatty pockets in the face, most people have great results from the HIFU.
Results are subtle and natural. During your initial free consultation, we will give you open and honest advice to help guide you on the best treatment options for you. We will never over-sell or be pushy with treatments.
