This pioneering treatment uses the latest cosmetic technologies to help tone, tighten and firm skin on the body, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leave the skin looking rejuvenated and youthful.
HIFU is unlike any other non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment, it uses thermal energy in the form of multiple beams of ultrasound to stimulate collagen, which helps to contract and tighten the surface of the skin. HIFU is specially designed to penetrate the dermis as well as the superficial muscular layer, which is deeper than other treatments are able to penetrate. This superficial muscular layer is the layer which is tightened during traditional facelift surgery, however, as HIFU is non-invasive the downtime is significantly reduced and the cost of treatment is much lower.
Our skin remains tight when there is a high concentration of collagen and elastin in the dermis layer. When the body lowers its production of collagen, the upper layers of skin begin to wrinkle and sag.
To reverse this, HIFU stimulates collagen growth by sending ultrasound energy to the dermis layer. The wave of energy causes a small injury to the tissue. However, as the tissue heals it produces new collagen that tightens the skin naturally.
To achieve this, our HIFU technologies target the four different layers of skin that affect physical appearance; specifically, the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous fat, and superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS).
For this reason, each different cartridge is designed to converge ultrasound at a specific skin layer depth. Amazingly, during skin and neck treatment sessions, the patient’s skin becomes more firm and youthful as new collagen grows.
In addition, after a single procedure, the patient’s skin will continually improve as new collagen is generated. A great advantage of the procedure is the fact that you will achieve optimal cosmetic results with only one treatment session.

The size of the treatment area and the plan chosen affects the duration of the HIFU treatment session, which can range between 30 and 90 minutes. We will be able to give you an estimate during your consultation.
Patients may experience skin redness for a few days after the session. Some mild swelling, tingling or tenderness may occur temporarily. Less common effects include slight bruising and skin sensitivity.
You may experience some immediate effects from the treatment. However, results may take up to 3 months to show and they will continue to improve for up to 7 months post treatment.
Results from a single HIFU treatment may last over 1 year. Please note, though, that each individual may respond differently to the treatment.
In order to address specific concerns, we tailor-make our HIFU treatments and our practitioners use them also in combination with other procedures, like for example radio-frequency, mesotherapy and injectable. There are certain contra-indications and restrictions in the order the treatments can be used in conjunction with other procedures. Therefore it is paramount to have an in-depth and thorough consultation with our practitioner, before you decide to go ahead with a HIFU procedure.

I have always been quite athletic, but recently due to injury I have been unable to train and as a result my chest and Abs have gone a little lumpy. After visiting the clinic the therapist told me that due to lack of movement, my circulation has slowed down and I have developed cellulite. After my course and a bit of Physio I am completely back on form. The treatment really helped me get my confidence back, and the will to start training again.
My dream treatment, I love having my Lipofirm Pro treatment. It means that I don’t have to go to the gym to see results… 30 minutes relaxing on a couch or 30 minutes on the treadmill? I know which one I’d prefer!!
In the past I’ve tried all sorts of systems to help with my stretch marks and reduce and tighten my baby belly after the birth of my children. The only treatment that I have seen results with is the Lipofirm Pro! I can now say I am feeling confident within my own skin.
We and our clients love this system! For fat reduction, cellulite and body/facial skin tightening! Over the past 15 years we have had virtually every cellulite/fat reduction system available! But Lipofirm Pro beats them all for results and time and cost effectiveness for us. This one is a keeper! The rest have been discarded! Fabulous results for every application! Love it!
My daughter had the Lipofirm and Radio Frequency treatment on her legs and achieved amazing instant results. After seeing how delighted she is with her results, I am currently having a course of Lipofirm Pro on my stomach. So far I am more than happy with the inches I have lost. From my first treatment I lost 5 and a half inches!!!!
Chose to have this done in Norwich as the salon was very helpful and friendly. First treatment I lost 3 inches off my stomach and felt firmer, looking forward to round 2!
My love handles have always made me very self conscious about my body, however I have never been successful with any fad diets or had the time to go to a gym. Instead I resorted to having the Lipofirm Pro treatment and saw instant results that made me feel more comfortable in my jeans. This treatment is fantastic for men as well, it’s not just for women!
I have done a huge amount of treatments since having the system in May year (2017) Clients are always so amazed even after the first session. One client lost 5.5 inches off her abdomen in 1 treatment!
An amazing treatment for removal of cellulite!! I have been paranoid about my arms for years and now I am wearing no sleeve tops. I saw immediate results from my first treatment!
The best treatment for cellulite!!!. I have used/tried many treatments to remove my unwanted cellulite and this treatment has proven the best out of them all with immediate results. Constantly recommending this treatment
