High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Facial
A high intensity focused ultrasound facial, or HIFU facial for short, is a noninvasive treatment for facial aging. This procedure is part of a growing trend for anti-aging treatments that provide some of the benefits of a facelift without the need for surgery.
What is HFIU?
A HIFU facial uses ultrasound to create heat at a deep level in the skin. This heat damages targeted skin cells, causing the body to try to repair them. To do this, the body produces collagen to aid in cell regrowth. Collagen is a substance in the skin that gives it structure and elasticity.

Immediately following the Doublo® treatment, the skin may appear red for a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days and/or tingling and tenderness for up to 1 week following the procedure. These are mild and temporary and depend on the strength of the treatment and your personal reaction. You can calm the areas treated with ice packs for relief, 10 minutes out of every hour is advised. If there is swelling an extra pillow or two is advised. If some tiny red bands, or ‘cat scratches’ appear on the skin, this is nothing to worry about and can be treated with hydrocortisone cream. Ibuprofen cream can also help with inflammation. If you experience any other side effects pleased contact the or have any further concerns please contact: Pure Aesthetics on 0115 950 2020.
