High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, also known as ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultherapy’, has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for the face, neck and body. It is a non-surgical revolutionary medical alternative to surgical facelift. Surgical facelift is more expensive, requires much more downtime and is much more painful.
HIFU targets multiple layers of the skin including the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), which is the same layer adjusted by surgeons during a facelift.
Some advantages of HIFU:
- Stimulates natural collagen production
- Stimulates elastin production
- No cuts to the skin
- No recovery time
- Noticeable results after just one treatment
- Results last 1-2 years
- Clinically proven

HIFU lifts and tones the face, neck and eyes resulting in a dramatic yet natural uplift. Results may last up to 2 years. HIFU treatment is rapidly gaining popularity in Islamabad, Pakistan. Though other non-invasive treatments have had promising results, the ability to target multiple layers beneath the skin is what sets HIFU apart. Unlike surgery, high-intensity focused ultrasound is safe, affordable and doesn’t require you to have downtime, following the treatment. You can have HIFU and leave everyone you know, wondering how you keep your skin so tight.
The treatment is able to target deep structural layers of the skin. HIFU uses ultrasound energy to apply thermal energy (heat) to specific depths of the skin, which boosts the body’s healing responses. This naturally increases the production of collagen and elastin in the tissues, helping to reduce the sign of ageing: The result is a younger and more refreshed appearance.

The price depends on the area you wish to treat. The smaller the area that needs treatment, the less the cost.
How It Works
We use a highly advanced High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Depending on the area we need to treat, we can target skin structures at 1.5 mm, 3 mm, 4.5 mm and 13 mm depth. Very few clinics, have this variety in depth adjustments, according to the patients needs.
The machine delivers an ultrasonic energy, which converts into thermal energy, which in turn induces production of elasticity, collagen and tightens the muscles, with a more pronounced effect than any other non-surgical treatment. HIFU truly is a new era in medical facelift, skin treatment, skin tightening and skin rejuvenation.
The thermal energy creates a reaction in the skin that leads to collagen and elastic production. Thereby, rejuvenating the skin the way nature rejuvenates.
Who is suitable for treatment?
HIFU is safe and suitable for most people over 20-25 years of age. Although it is safe, younger patients would normally not require HIFU treatment. Some young patients may need it for double chin treatment or other specific purposes. HIFU will stimulate collagen and elastin production to help lift and tighten the treated area to help delay the ageing process.
