Its time to look and feel fabulous. HIFU is one of the best kept secrets for a non-surgical makeover. Lifting, firming, tightening and contouring face and body has never been easier. Muffin top sounds so cute, but its so not! No drastic or invasive procedures needed. If you afraid of needles or thinking about having a facelift but want to avoid going under the knife, HIFU and/or Radio Frequency combined with ultrasound are your go to treatments. Say bye-bye to jowls, a double chin, gynecomastia, saddle bags, love handles and just about any stubborn pocket of fat or sagging skin you are not comfortable with. HIFU can even decrease stretch marks, lift brows and treat hyperhidrosis.
HIFU was approved by the FDA back in 2015. HIFU is a non-invasive technique that uses ultrasonic waves to heat and eliminate selected tissue. The ultrasound is focused via a lens or transducer and this concentrates it into a small focus zone. It is similar concept to the way a magnifying glass would be used to focus sunlight to heat an area.
Medically, HIFU is used to increase the flow of blood or lymph or destroy tissues such as tumours. Cosmetically HIFU is used to tighten skin, reduce vaginal laxity and destroy fat cells.
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. Using different handpieces, this non-invasive treatment can target various depths of the body’s tissue. It works by targeting up to 4.5mm deep into skin layer in the skin and causing selected thermocoagulation points which boosts new collagen production, regenerating collagen right at the source and reknits elastin fibres. The treatment is very tolerable and has no downtime.
At The Laser Beautique we use our very own BeauHIFU. A course of BeauHIFU facial treatments is considered a non-invasive facelift as results will include tightening of the skin, ironing out of lines and wrinkles, elimination of jowls and overall improvement of skin tone, texture, pores, and elasticity. A course of BeauHIFU body treatments is considered as lipolysis and body contouring. HIFU is an excellent treatment for anyone who is wanting to transform their body, post pregnancy stubborn fat sagging skin, abdomen fat, thighs, upper underarms, bum and breast lift. Also recommended to anyone who has lost a lot of weight and is suffering from lose skin. Treatment is very effective treatment for both cm loss and fat loss – with the bonus of skin tightening at the same time.
HIFU device used at The Laser Beautique comes with large and small handpieces for the larger or smaller contours of the face and body. Larger handpieces are used to treat body areas where the energy targets the fatty layer and eliminates fat cells. The device uses a centralised ultrasound transducer which makes the treatment more comfortable and more accurate so our clients can benefit from high energy levels for better results. There is constant water flow in the device. This prevents overheating and allows for a uniform treatment.
The BeauHIFU treatment at The Laser Beautique can take up to 3 hours per treatment, depending on the area being treated. You’ll see results immediately after the treatment, but with the regeneration of collagen, the full results will only be seen 3 months post treatment. With a single session, you will already see results, and might opt in for only 1. However, for best long lasting results we recommend 3 to 4 sessions, each spaced out every 2-3 months. BeauHIFU is safe for both men and women of all ages. Full results are not immediate.
There is no downtime with this treatment and you can return to your normal daily activities immediately afterwards. You can also return to your normal skincare routine the very next day.

Frequently asked Questions
The device uses ultrasound, targeting the upper dermis 1.5mm, the lower dermis 3.00mm and most importantly the SMAS layer at 4.5mm. The SMAS layer sits between you muscle and your fat layer and is the area where a plastic surgeon would pull and tighten in a surgical facelift. HIFU targets this layer without any surgical incisions, giving you a non-invasive, no down-time face lift, tightening the skin, ironing out wrinkles, targeting the jowl and improves overall skin tone, pores, brightness and elasticity.
Ultrasound energy causes selected parts of the tissues to heat up rapidly, and once the cells in the targeted area reaches a certain temperature, it experience cellular damage. This is what we call a controlled injury. This may seem counterintuitive, but the damage actually stimulates the cells to produces collagen and elastin. The Ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site, therefore allowing the surface of the skin to be bypassed and as a result no damage to the upper layers of the skin or adjacent tissue.
BeauHIFU is recommended as a multiple treatment protocol. Recommendation will vary per client, but 3 – 4 treatments are recommended, 2-3 months apart, no less. This enables the regeneration of collagen between treatments.
HIFU has been tested in Clinical trials and found both safe and effective for facial and body lifting and tightening.
The Laser Beautique uses top technology, with a dedicated device to this single HIFU technology. This can be more effective than a multi-platform device. The initial costs might be slightly more but you will need fewer treatments and see quicker results.
By stimulating one’s own collagen production through the layers of the skin, HIFU delivers natural looking skin lifting and tightening results. Depending on the setting used, HIFU face lift treatments are able to “melt” facial fats while tightening the area simultaneously.
Results can be seen in 1 treatment; our trained aesthetician will take photos before and after your treatment as well as if a body treatment is performed, we will take measurements to ensure results were achieved. For desired long term results we recommend a course of 3 sessions be followed up.
Our bodies and skin are built to naturally age, if a treatment like HIFU is performed greater and prolonged results will be visible in an individual who is working with the process from active anti-aging facial home care products to dieting, exercising your body in concerned areas. Without the commitment from client or natural processes our bodies take, results might only be shortened live than a client fully committed.
Our device offers a very comfortable treatment. It can be described as feeling tiny electrical pulses, or a prickly sensation. It is not pain free but completely tolerable. You can also expect different tolerance and sensations on various areas of your face and body.
There is no down time to this treatment, results can be seen immediately depending on your skin laxity, with mild redness after the treatment and possibly slight bruising the next day. Most people see the full results 3 months after the final treatment.
