HIFU-Non Surgical Facelift
If you don't want to go under the knife and would like to look youthful in the most natural way possible then this is the option for you. High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound is the best non surgical procedure currently on the market to reduce the signs of ageing without surgery or injectables. This technology breakthrough in anti-ageing is the only FDA approved treatment with the specific intention of tightening the jawline and neck, and reducing wrinkles and lines
Our HIFU machine can shoot 11 lines rather than 1 line like most treatments on the market. Our 11 line handles mean that we have better precision and can focus more accurately to your chosen treatment area.
HIFU treats areas of the face, neck and decolletage. The skin will look plumper, fresher and more youthful. Unlike a surgical facelift, there is no down time, no incisions, no recovery time and no hugely expensive costs.
The science behind it..
HIFU (High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound) is the only non surgical cosmetic procedure that can target the deep structural layers of the skin using ultrasound to lift and tighten the face, neck and décolletage areas.
The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive facial treatments. SMAS is the same layer which is tightened during traditional facelift surgery. The ultrasound energy is able to target the deep layers of the skin and kick start the body’s healing response. The levels of collagen in the tissues then naturally increase, as the collagen increases, this leads to a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin. The process can take 12-24 weeks to see the full benefits, as this process takes place your skin will be plumper, fresher and smoother.
This procedure allows your own natural collagen to do the work of looking youthful in a more natural and healthier way. You will be amazed at the results.
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. For a reputable HIFU machine the average amount of lines shot for a Full Facelift is around 900 and takes around 2 hours.. 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. It is important to choose the right clinic based on the quality of their equipment before handing your face over!

Frequently asked questions
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?
Lower face to include lasonabial folds
How long does it take?
Anything from 30 minutes to 2 hours. It depends on what areas you are having treated.
How many treatments will i need?
One treatment is enough to have excellent results and most people do not need a further treatment for 12 months.
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. You will be given an aftercare leaflet to take with you and a contact number to call should you have any questions after your treatment.
Do not expose your skin to the sun or sunbeds for at least 24 hours.
No facials for 48 hours
Use plenty of moisturiser
use a hydrating facemask every couple of days.
Drink plenty of water to keep your skin fully hydrated.
When will i see a change?
You will see a difference immediately in the tightening of your muscles but the full effects will not be apparent for 12 - 18 weeks. This is the time it takes for the natural collagen in your skin to work its magic.
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 for anyone who has got to a certain age and has mild to moderate skin laxity. We recommend that you be at least 30 years old to see benefits from the treatment. Anyone experiencing lowered brows, jowls, sagging skin on the neck, lines on the face and chest are all perfect candidates for this treatment. The best way to find out is to book a consultation and we will advise if you are suitable.
What is the difference between your 3D 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.
If you do a home visit, will my neighbours know?
Not unless you tell them! We do not have branded vehicles for this very reason, so when we arrive at your home nobody knows who we are. Your neighbours will notice you starting to look younger though! It's up to you if you tell them the reason.
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.
Why are you cheaper/more expensive than other companies?
You will find treatments on the market more expensive and cheaper than our treatments.
How do i know where your clinics will be?
Jo offers treatmens in her private clinic in Marple, Cheshire and also carry out satellite clinics in salons around the country. Depending on the treatments you have and where you are located, we can also offer a home visit.
We are a salon and would like to book a clinic.
