HIFU Treatment Newcastle
RT Aesthetics offers advanced MED: HIFU Ultra treatments at our Newcastle clinic.
HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, it is the latest non-surgical, non-invasive clinically proven technology for lifting and tightening the face, neck, décolletage and other areas of the body. It works by naturally stimulating the production of new collagen for a natural, textured and younger-looking appearance.*
HIFU treatment also known as HIFU facials, HIFU facelift and Ultherapy® is a revolutionary new technology that has been tried and tested for its benefits. HIFU treatment can lift and tighten the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer of the skin. The SMAS layer is the same layer targeted during conventional surgery.
MED: HIFU Ultra is only used by approved medical clinics like ours – so you know you’ve got the best care with RT Aesthetics in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
Non-Surgical Facelift Newcastle
HIFU treatment has become one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for the face, neck & body, without going under the knife. HIFU is able to reach deep layers of the skin tissues that other anti-aging treatments cannot affect. This makes HIFU treatment a very popular alternative to surgery or more invasive treatments such as thread lifts or injectable toxins and fillers. HIFU treatment can lift and tighten the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer of the skin. The SMAS layer is the same layer targeted during conventional surgery.
Just one session will tighten and lift the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin tone, providing visible results that will last up to 3 years. HIFU has proven effective on sagging jaws/chins, crows feet, forehead frown lines and much more. Treatment time takes between 1 – 3 hours depending on the area we are treating. Plus with no downtime, you can be back at your usual routine immediately after.
RT Aesthetics offers advanced MED: HIFU Ultra treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy that is able to target the SMAS layer (deep structural layers) of the skin. By targeting heat at the specific depths within the skin layers the body undergoes the regenerative process, resulting in the production of new collagen. As new collagen is produced and increased within the treatment area, this leads to gentle lifting and tightening of the skin.
How HIFU Treatment Works
HIFU treatments are based on hyperthermia lifting theory. The HIFU transducer irradiates 65-75Cº of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy into the skin, this then creates thermal coagulation on the target layers of skin tissue with no damage on the skin surface. Following the initial treatment, the skin starts to undergo a wound-healing process that simulates collagen synthesis and regeneration.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other cosmetic procedures, HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths within the skin at the desired temperature. This HIFU energy triggers a natural response under the skin, causing the body to enter into the regenerative process, resulting in the production of new collagen.
RT Aesthetics offers advanced 4D HIFU treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy that is able to target the SMAS layer (deep structural layers) of the skin. By targeting heat at the specific depths within the skin layers the body undergoes the regenerative process, resulting in the production of new collagen. As new collagen is produced and increased within the treatment area, this leads to gentle lifting and tightening of the skin.
HIFU treatment helps to reduce the signs of aging, for a younger, more refreshed appearance. HIFU treatment can also help reduce, uneven and/or untextured skin and areas of excess skin on the body. The treatment is unique in its ability to penetrate beneath the surface of the skin, targeting 3 different layers of the skin, including the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer.

HIFU Treatment Results
Results from HIFU treatment can be seen within 6-12 weeks, with further results being reported for up to 6 months after the initial procedure. Clients who have undergone HIFU treatment can benefit from long-lasting results in excess of 2 years*. Although, as the skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments may be taken by the client yearly, this can help clients keep pace with the body’s natural aging process.
Many clients only need one HIFU treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy, and the client’s collagen-building process, some clients benefit from additional treatment after 4 weeks.
MED: HIFU came out in 2017 and has been used in many salons across the UK. If you want to skip to the latest HIFU then please click here. HIFU is updated yearly and in the last 3 years it has come a long way. The latest HIFU generation is MED: HIFU Ultra.
However, not all clinics will offer this new MED: HIFU Ultra treatment as it requires a specialist aesthetic practitioner to operate the machine. However, this machine is proven to work and we would definitely say this machine is far better than 4D & 5D HIFU. It fires 950,000 more focused ultrasound dots within the skin and is proven to be 92% more effective than 4D & 5D HIFU.

There was another device released in 2018 called 5D HICE ICE, however, this was a cheap Chinese copy of the machine and its effects have been little proven. The device has caused many injuries and severe side effects in the UK.
We would strongly recommend against this technology and going to an approved HIFU clinic.
