High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) also known as ‘3D SkinMed’ or ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ has become one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for face and neck.
HIFU is a safe, non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. HIFU uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
How Does It Work?
For the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for Face and Neck treatment, energy is delivered deep beneath the skin at appropriate temperatures, at three separate chosen levels (4.5mm, 3.0mm and 1.5mm). This heat causes the formation of a series of thermal coagulation points at approximately 1mm cubed. Temperatures between 60 – 70 degrees centigrade lead to collagen denaturation, leading collagen to quickly go about repairing itself. Collagen remodelling, as well as visible changes, can be seen immediately after the treatment but the full benefits are expected to be seen three months after the treatment. This is one of the most popular treatments in the industry as results can last from 1-2 years, leading HIFU to be known as the “non-surgical alternative to the face-lift”.
Age and gravity effects on our skin are offset by non invasive HIFU treatment using the body’s own recuperative powers to lift the skin of the face, neck, under the chin, and décolleté, lift eyebrows and smooth wrinkles and lines. It is safe and effective. HIFU treats tissue otherwise only reached by surgery. HIFU can go beneath the surface of the skin without breaking the outer skin and reach into the dermis and SMAS layer. It is suitable for men as well as women.

So many of our clients have told just the reason for the popularity of our courses is due to the fact that our certification works on the basis that you are not tied to any specific brand. You are taught the skill set then you can use any brand to then go on and do the treatment with your own chosen brands. Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.
Do I need to be in the medical profession?
This course is open to complete beginners or existing therapists, no previous massage experience required to attend.
