What is a HIFU facial?

HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. A HIFU facial is a premium treatment for patients with slack, sagging, or ageing skin that would like a non-invasive approach to skin tightening, muscle strengthening and subtle lifting of jowls, chin and general skin plumping.

A HIFU treatment requires two sessions four weeks apart. Results can be visible after treatment, but the full HIFU before and after results will be visible from 90 days and improve further as the body is stimulated to continue creating more collagen.

Depending on their skin issues, some patients may require more than two sessions of HIFU treatment. This treatment is to be repeated every 6 or 12 months.

If you would like to book a consultation for HIFU treatment near you, we are open from 10.00 am – 8.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

The Procedure

Prior To Treatment

A HIFU facelift is the most popular and innovative facial and skin lifting and tightening treatment. There is little to no downtime with a HIFU facial, and a minimum of 2 sessions four weeks apart is required. The treatment can be combined with the RF microneedling alternating treatments on a particular treatment plan devised by Fiore Aesthetics skin practitioners.


A HIFU facial is the ultimate non-surgical lifting treatment. We use Focus Dual by Lynton Lasers, a British brand. Your skin will be mapped out for treatment; most patients will have the face and neck treatment due to all the muscles being linked. From experience, we believe having the face and neck treatment together will create the best uniform results. There is little to no pain.

After Treatment

Your skin may be a little pink, but the downtime is minimal. Once your first HIFU treatment has been performed, we will request you book your 2nd treatment immediately. The treatment results take up to 90 days to fully form and see the proper HIFU before and after effects. You and your practitioner can decide if another session is required—usually, this applies to a more mature and slack skin type.

What To Expect

A local anaesthetic cream is not required for HIFU skin tightening. A clear gel will be applied to the face, and the skin will be marked out before the HIFU machine is used. Two sessions are required for maximum effect.

Cannot rate this clinic highly enough. From initial booking and greeting from Carly who is always so lovely and accommodating, through to the treatment with Flavio. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my face. He takes time and pride in his procedures. He makes you feel so special as a patient, he shares advice, he makes you feel safe and talks through everything with you. You leave feeling so confident in your appearance. Flavio’s work is unmatched, truly an artist and a magician.

Lovely welcoming clinic,Carly and Marina are fabulous, and I always feel like I am given the best service. I will be back for more treatments soon
I had a fabulous deep cleanse facial by Marina and it was spectacular. Amazing results and just what I needed at the end of a holiday! I’ve been to the clinic on a few occasions for this facial and each time it has been the best! It is the only clinic I will go to for a deep cleanse facial as it has demonstrated better results than any other clinic I’ve been to. Marina did my first ever facial at CF so I was thrilled to have another appointment with her! I really appreciated the time and care she put into my facial. I love how the extraction process doesn’t cause much redness, so when you are leaving the clinic your face isn’t blotchy or painful.

I’ve been coming to clinica Flore for a few years now and I honestly couldn’t recommended them enough. Always a warm welcome from the team Carly and Marina. The treatment is thoroughly professional and sorts out my chronic rosacea everytime, it’s a 10 out of 10 from me.

Before going in for my HIFU treatment I did some reading about the procedure, particularly about the side effects. One that had me a bit worried was being blotchy and red as I do have sensitive skin. However, Flavio was so gentle that I didn’t experience any redness after the treatment or pain during the procedure. Their staff is so friendly from the minute you call them to book an appointment to them performing the procedure. They update you with every step of the process so that you are aware of what they are doing to your face. I highly recommend their services they have indeed impressed me and I can’t wait for my next appointment with them. #HappyClient

I have been to other clinics and it is the first time the staff has been amazing, they showed they are actually passionate for what they do and they do care for the patients. I am over the moon with the treatments I received, I can say I’ve got incredible results. Definitely going back to Fiore for future treatments, and highly recommend it. Thank you so much Flavio, truly appreciate your commitment!
Great combination of the new and improved HIFU and new skin pen with ultrasound! Both treatments combined have massively improved the skin texture and lifting of facial contours, not even 24 downtime and virtually painless in my case, loved it! Would definitely recommend this combo or even as separate treatments as I did see big improvements on each session! Also the clinic is always at such high standards and always immaculately presented! Thank you, will be back!


How many HIFU treatments do I need?

HIFU facials require at least two treatments spaced four weeks apart. However, depending on your skin issues, you may require more than two sessions.

We recommend that you repeat your HIFU treatment every 6-12 months. Most patients find twice a year to be the most beneficial.

The HIFU facelift is recommended to patients with slack, sagging, or ageing skin. It is a non-invasive approach to skin tightening, muscle strengthening and subtle lifting of jowls, chin and general skin plumping.

Most patients ask for only the jawline as it is one of the first places to show signs of ageing. We believe that treating the whole face gives a better and longer-lasting result.

You would still get results by treating only the jawline, but the effects will not be at the maximum while you are not treating the muscles above.

The HIFU treatment will be a big part of helping you lift the jowl area. You may find a combination of treatments will get you the best results, but HIFU is a great place to start!

You can find HIFU treatments at our clinic based in Covent Garden, London. Give us a call today to make your booking!
