What is it?
For us at Clever Contours, we believe that HIFU truly is the best non surgical procedure on the market. This technology breakthrough in anti-ageing and skin tightening is the only FDA approved treatment with the specific intention of tightening loose skin and toning.
HIFU for the body works slightly different from the face as the depth for the face lift is for tightening and collagen stimulation. For the body, it is for fat reduction and tightening. We use a combination of 6mm, 10mm, 13mm and 16mm depth of Ultrasound.
This treatment is particularly effective for treating sagging and lax skin. Often a combination of Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing, HIFU and HyperTone EMS is effective for your desired outcome if there is also fat. For only skin tightening, HIFU is the perfect solution.
Let's talk science.
The high frequency of the ultrasound results in the rapid heating of the area 8mm, 10mm, 13mm and 16mm below the skin leaving the surface totally unaffected. This energy increases in temperature as it gets deeper below the outer skin due to the energy of the HIFU, which then causes cellular friction. These fat cells are then exposed to the high temperature causing rapid cell death (necrosis).
We currently treat the inner and outer thighs, upper legs, tummy, flanks and arms with our HIFU Advanced Body Treatment. The high frequency of ultrasound heats below the surface of the skin, effectively destroying the fat cells and tightening the skin in the area. These damaged cells are then flushed away through a natural removal process through the lymphatic drainage system over 3 months.
State of the art technology.
Our HIFU machine differs from most being used within salons currently. It shoots 11 lines as opposed to the one. This means that the targeted areas receive a more focussed level of ultrasound and we can ensure that the face or body has the optimum level of shots in the correct order. This also means that you receive more shots of Ultrasound in less time.
Our owner and founder of Clever Contours carries out all HIFU treatments. Jo is a specialist and trainer in this treatment and has referrals from Cosmetic Surgeons who have performed surgical face lifts and recommend HIFU for achieving longevity with their surgery.
Jo has resounding success in the HIFU treatment and is considered a leader in her field. Her reputation in this treatment is unrivaled. It is important to choose the right clinic based on the quality of their training, experience and equipment before handing your face over!

Does HIFU really work?
Yes! It absolutely works. It is also FDA Approved and has been vigorously tried and tested in order to receive the accreditation. In addition to having FDA approval, we can honestly say that we have never seen results like it from such a simple and non invasive procedure.
What areas can i have treated?
Upper Legs back
How long does it take?
The treatment usually takes around 1 hour
How many treatments will i need?
What will i feel during the treatment?
You can certainly feel the treatment but it is by no means painful or unbearable. You will feel heat and a slight tingling sensation. It is a strange sensation as the treatment is working below the skin and you can feel the ulstrasound. All of our clients happily chat through the whole treament.
What happens after the treatment and are there any side effects?
Your consultant will go through all of the potential side effects with you prior to your treatment and answer any questions you have.
When will i see a change?
The treatment takes up to 12 weeks for the full results to show themselves but you will generally start seeing results within 4 weeks.
What is the downtime after the treatment?
None whatsoever. You are even able to have the treatment in your lunch break and head back to work.
Is the treatment suitable for everyone?
The treatment is suitable ffor anyone who has sagging skin. We do not recommend this treatment if you have more than 3-4 stone in weight to lose.
What is the difference between your 4D HIFU and regular HIFU?
Our machine is the latest version of HIFU. Most machines will shoot one line of ultrasound at a time and the practitioner will move the handle along the face to shoot further lines. Our handles are able to shoot up to eleven lines at a time without moving the handle, meaning that is it more precise and has more accuracy at targetting the chosen area. Your treatment time will be much shorter.
Do i have to have before and after pictures?
Yes. These are purely for our treatment records and will never be shared for marketing unless you give your written permission.
