HIFU Face & Body Benfleet

HIFU Face & Body In Benfleet

Lift & Fat Reduction

HIFU face and body treatments in Benfleet, Essex at Monika Advanced Aesthetics. HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. It is also known as Ultherapy, which is a popular brand name for HIFU treatment.

During a HIFU treatment session, a handheld device is used to deliver precise ultrasound waves to targeted areas of the face or body. The ultrasound energy penetrates deep into the skin layers, bypassing the surface, and reaches the deeper tissues, including the SMAS (Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System) layer. The SMAS layer is the same layer that is tightened during surgical facelift procedures.

The ultrasound energy stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that provides structure and firmness to the skin. This collagen production helps to lift and tighten the treated area, reducing sagging and improving overall skin tone and texture.

Some key points about HIFU treatment include:

  1. Non-invasive: HIFU is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure. It does not require incisions or anesthesia, and there is minimal downtime compared to surgical options.
  2. Targeted treatment: The ultrasound energy can be precisely focused on specific areas of concern, such as the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jawline, or neck. This allows for customized treatment based on the individual’s needs.
  3. Gradual results: The results of HIFU treatment develop gradually over several weeks to months as the stimulated collagen production takes effect. The full benefits of the treatment may be seen within 2 to 3 months after the session.
  4. Longevity of results: The effects of HIFU treatment can last for a significant amount of time, typically around 1 to 2 years. However, individual results may vary, and maintenance treatments can help sustain the results over a longer period.

HIFU can also be used for fat reduction in certain cases. HIFU technology has been adapted to target and destroy fat cells in specific areas of the body, resulting in a reduction in localized fat deposits. This treatment is often referred to as “HIFU fat reduction” or “ultrasound fat cavitation.”

The HIFU fat reduction procedure involves the use of focused ultrasound energy to heat and destroy fat cells beneath the skin’s surface. The ultrasound waves are concentrated on the targeted area, creating a thermal effect that disrupts the fat cells without causing harm to the surrounding tissues. The destroyed fat cells are then gradually eliminated from the body through the natural metabolic processes.

It’s important to note that HIFU fat reduction is generally more suitable for smaller areas with localized fat deposits rather than overall weight loss. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), thighs, and upper arms.

Key points about HIFU fat reduction include:

  1. Non-surgical and non-invasive: HIFU fat reduction is a non-surgical alternative to procedures like liposuction. It does not require incisions, anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery period. Most individuals can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  2. Gradual results: The results of HIFU fat reduction develop gradually over several weeks to months as the destroyed fat cells are gradually eliminated from the body. Multiple treatment sessions may be recommended to achieve the desired outcome.
  3. Individual response and expectations: The effectiveness of HIFU fat reduction can vary from person to person. Factors such as the amount of fat present, skin elasticity, and individual metabolism can influence the results. It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that HIFU fat reduction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise.

The number of HIFU sessions needed can vary depending on several factors, including the specific treatment area, desired results and individual response to the treatment. Generally, multiple sessions are required to achieve optimal outcomes.

For facial treatments, it is common to undergo 1 to 3 sessions spaced approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart. Some individuals may require additional sessions based on their specific needs and the extent of skin laxity or concerns being addressed.

For body treatments, such as HIFU for fat reduction or body contouring, the number of sessions needed may also vary. Typically, 1 to 3 sessions are recommended, but more sessions may be necessary for larger treatment areas or more significant fat reduction goals.

It’s important to note that HIFU results are gradual and continue to improve over time as collagen production is stimulated and the skin tightens. The full effects of the treatment may not be noticeable until a few months after the final session.

Side effects

HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is generally considered a safe and well-tolerated procedure. However, like any cosmetic treatment, it does carry some potential side effects. Here are some common side effects associated with HIFU:

  1. Temporary redness or flushing: The treated area may appear reddened or flushed immediately after the procedure. This is a normal and temporary side effect that typically resolves within a few hours to a day.
  2. Swelling: Mild swelling can occur in the treated area. This is a normal response to the ultrasound energy and usually subsides within a few days.
  3. Tenderness or sensitivity: The treated area may feel tender or sensitive to touch for a short period. This sensitivity is temporary and should resolve on its own.
  4. Tingling or numbness: Some individuals may experience a temporary tingling or numb sensation in the treated area. This is typically mild and transient.
  5. Bruising: In rare cases, bruising may occur in the treated area. This is more common when HIFU is performed on areas with thinner skin, such as the forehead or around the eyes. Bruising usually resolves within a week or two.

It’s important to note that these side effects are generally mild and temporary. They tend to resolve on their own without any intervention. However, it’s essential to follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by us to minimize the risk of complications and promote optimal healing.


Aftercare following a HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment is important to promote proper healing and optimize the results of the procedure. Here are some general guidelines for HIFU aftercare:

  1. Protect the treated area from the sun: After a HIFU treatment, the treated skin may be more sensitive to sunlight. It’s important to protect the area from direct sun exposure by wearing protective clothing, hats, and using broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Limit sun exposure, especially during peak hours.
  2. Avoid heat exposure: Avoid exposing the treated area to excessive heat sources such as hot baths, saunas, or steam rooms. Heat can exacerbate post-treatment redness and increase the risk of complications.
  3. Use gentle skincare products: Choose gentle, non-irritating skincare products for your post-treatment routine. Avoid harsh cleansers, exfoliants, or products containing active ingredients such as retinol or acids.
  4. Moisturize regularly: Keep the treated area hydrated by applying a moisturizer. This can help soothe the skin and promote healing.
  5. Avoid aggressive treatments: Refrain from undergoing aggressive treatments, such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments, in the treated area for at least two weeks.
  6. Be patient: The results of HIFU develop gradually over time as collagen production is stimulated and the skin tightens. It may take several weeks to months to see the full benefits of the treatment. Be patient and allow your skin to heal and regenerate.
  7. Maintain a healthy lifestyle: To optimize the results of your HIFU treatment, maintain a healthy lifestyle. This includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, proper hydration, and adequate sleep.
