HIFU Treatments Results – What to expect?

Updated: May 1

To answer this question I need to address these:-

1. How many HIFU treatments do you need to see a result?

2. How long does it take to see the results?

3. How long do the results last?




HIFU Face-Lift Treatments Results

There are a few factors to take into account when directly answering these questions as open and honestly as possible.


Namely the quality of your skin health and your realistic expectations.


As skin health expert specifically of aesthetic skin facialist I previously managed a anti-aging private clinic. Every day I work with clients just like you who want to improve the quality of their skin tone and firmness at home and enjoy my in-clinic skin rejuvenation treatments.

My approach is to educate you about aesthetic solutions to pro-ageing for younger-looking skin, so you can feel confident about investing in your skincare routine and skin rejuvenation treatments that are right for your skin health not just your skin type.


So are the headline true?

Get an instant non-surgical face lift
Quick results – from just one treatment
Tighter firmer skin – instantly
Long-lasting results

The question I always get asked is when will I see a result?


To answer these questions I am also going to make a few assumptions.

Number 1. That have read my skin health blog and understand what I am talking about when I mention the quality of your skin health?

Number 2. You will do the skin health test

Number 3. You have read my blog and are aware of the differences between a skin tightening HIFU treatment and an face-lift HIFU treatment.


Therefore I am going to assume you have taken my skin health quiz and feel confident that because you scored over 6 out of ten you are confident that both types of HIFU treatment are right for you!


To answer the first question:

1. How many HIFU treatments do you need to see a result?

The straight answer is ONE to feel and see the quality and laxity of your skin improve. This is true for both skin tightening and face-lift treatments.

It’s the next question when you will get different answers depending on the type of result you want from your HIFU face treatments. And then I will discuss how many HIFU treatments you will want for the result to last.

2. How long does it take to see results?

When looking at skin tightening, so using only a single layer macro-energy you only need one single treatment to feel skin tightening result. And the result is instant – so look in the mirror and see a change. This will improve over the next 2- 4 week

It’s the HIFU Face lift treatment where there is an initial plump and feeling of tightness, but the lift takes time.

The deep micro-energy layer into the dermis contracts the smas layer and causes the inflammatory response.

You have to wait for your immune system to react and produce fibroblast which will harvest the collagen and elastin production.

This can take from 3 months to 6 months to come to the surface of the skin.

However, during that period you will feel a firmness from the mid-layer of collagen and elastin at 4 to 6 weeks but the structured feeling of firmness takes a little longer than you want to believe.

With my skin rejuvenation clients when they first have the HIFU Face Lift treatment it is always at the 6 months point they report back to me they can really notice a difference.

3. How long do the results last?

Starting with the instant skin tightening it takes as long as it takes for your skin to age and breakdown the collagen that was created due to the collagen stimulation.

Now I am sorry that is a bit of a politicians answer, but it the best way I can honestly explain what happens.

If you are under 30 your collagen does not breakdown as quickly as it does for when we are 40 or 50 or 60 years + years old.

We all know that as we age our collagen breakdowns at 1% per year and starts to gather speed if it does not have all the ingredients and stimulation it needs to keep regenerating.

But take a moment to have a think about a 50-year-old who’s skin health is 9 out of ten, they are hydrated, a good diet, don’t smoke, don’t go outdoors in the sun and have regular aesthetic skin treatments?

How quickly is her collagen going to decrease?

Probably about the same speed as the 30 years!

In general the answer to the question of how long do the result last for instant HIFU skin tightening I would say between 4 and 6 weeks.


Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

However, if you are new to having aesthetic skin treatments, so in the early days of having HIFU treatments I strongly recommend a minimum of 3 collagen-stimulating treatments within a 12 week period.

This gives your skin the same inflammatory message within a short period of time. The consistent message encourages your skin cells to keep working and accumulating collagen and elastin.

The benefits to you are that your skin will feel and look fabulous during the 12 weeks,

If you decide to completely stop having any aesthetics treatments, you would continue to feel the benefits of the 3 treatments for approx. a further 6 months.

As for the HIFU face-lift treatment the theory is the same.

Depending on the quality of skin health when you have treatment will depend on how long the effects of the treatment will be felt.

So if you plan to only have one HIFU face-lift treatment and your skin health score was above 6 out of ten then you will feel the instant benefit of that treatment of skin tightening and then lift after about 12 weeks (3 months) for at least 6 to 12-month post-treatments.

In summary: you will instantly feel a change to your skin tone after any type of HIFU treatment.

If you have a deeper lifting treatment the firmness will come after about 2 months and the overall look of lifted will be approx. 3 to 4 months later and will then last for a further 6 months.


For me personally, I do a HIFU half face treatment every quarter and within that 12 weeks period, I will also have other skin rejuvenation & supplements to ensure cellular health – collagen-stimulating treatments to maintain and keep my skin feeling firm such as micro-skin needling and test my Omega-3:6 to keep it in balance, as an imbalance speeds up the aging process.

From experience, I can tell you that if life takes over and I don’t do the HIFU face-lift within 6 months I definitely know its time to do a deeper treatment.


Now, I am still ageing and my skin is still changing and losing its elasticity but I do feel as thou I am managing my ageing skin. Its important to be clear, that my slow and low approach to skincare is the same with HIFU face treatments.

Starting with a full HIFU facelift treatment and sitting back waiting for the results its not the best way to improve your skin tone for younger-looking skin. Regular and consistent collagen-stimulating treatments are an essential way to boost or a lift to maintain the structure of your skin tone is what works well for me and my clients.


Being passionate about cellular health & exercise, I tend to relate my skin advice to health!

Think about going to the gym once a month and having a personal trainer on that one day and they do their workout with you – not yours!

What happens, how long will it take for you to see the benefits?

All you feel is pain during and after and the following week

You cant walk for a few days and create a fear going back again!

You don’t lose any weight and nor gain any tone! Just spend a load of money and cause damage to your body!

It’s a complete waste of your time and money and then you tell yourself and your friends that you have been to the gym, tired that PT and its did not work!

Its not the gym that didn’t work it’s you! Same theory.. different activity.

Hope this has answered a few questions or concerns you have if considering HIFU treatments.
