HIFU treatment is suitable for most people. We discuss your medical history at your new patient consultation and would ask you to postpone treatment if you were pregnant or breastfeeding.
HIFU causes micro injuries caused by highly focused acoustic energy, creating thermal coagulation at three different skin layers to encourage the growth and formation of new collagen. In the weeks following treatment the areas will appear lifted, firmer and toned while fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced as the skin tightens.
We have carefully chosen our Doublo HIFU device after much consideration and testing, we found it to be the most comfortable in achieving the best results. Our Doublo HIFU treatment is CE certified and extremely safe. Thames Skin Clinic staff are highly trained in the use of HIFU for face and body treatments.

Treatment works by forming focused thermal coagulation in the desired skin and deep layers causing neo-collagenesis and new collagen formation as well as contraction of unwanted fat. Tightening of the skin fibres contracts the surface area of the skin, creating an improvement in the appearance of drooping or sagging skin on the face, neck, jawline and body area treated. It is especially good at treating the stubborn fat and sagging skin under the chin.
