MED: HIFU – Commonly Asked Questions

Estimated reading time 4 minutes

Are you looking for a non-invasive, effective way to rejuvenate your skin and turn back the clock on aging?

Look no further than MED:HIFU Ultra+, a high-intensity focused ultrasound treatment that works wonders on various areas of the body.

Let’s delve into the world of MED:HIFU and explore its benefits, the treatment process, and what you can expect.

How Does MED:HIFU Treatment Work?

MED:HIFU Ultra+ operates by delivering high-intensity focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin across three different layers.

This energy targets not only the superficial and dermal layers but also the SMAS layer – the same layer surgeons tighten during a facelift.

As the thermal energy safely heats the tissues, it triggers skin contraction and the formation of new collagen, resulting in long-term skin tightening effects.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

MED:HIFU isn’t just for the face; it can work its magic on the abdomen, hips, buttocks, inner thighs, outer thighs, and inner arms, offering a versatile solution to address various body concerns.

What to Expect After MED:HIFU Treatment?

Following a MED:HIFU body treatment, clients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or tingling.

Fear not – these symptoms usually fade within hours.

RT Aesthetics provides a soothing cream to settle the skin, and it’s available for purchase to continue the care at home.

The treatments effects signal the production of new collagen and initiate the regeneration process, offering clinically proven, safe, and effective results.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

While many clients achieve desired results after just one MED: HIFU Ultra+ Body treatment, some may opt for additional sessions based on skin laxity and individual responses.

Results can be seen within 12 weeks, with continued improvement for up to 6 months.

The long-lasting effects can persist for 2 – 3 years, and occasional touch-ups may help combat the natural aging process.

Is MED:HIFU Like a Facelift?

MED:HIFU Ultra+ treats the deep foundational layers addressed in cosmetic surgery but doesn’t replicate a facelift’s results.

It serves as a fantastic alternative to surgery and complements pre/post-cosmetic surgery effects, making it an attractive option for those who prefer non-surgical interventions.

Is MED:HIFU Treatment Safe?

Certified by the FDA and CE cleared for eyebrow lifting, MED:HIFU Ultra+ has a stellar safety record with over 1,00,000 treatments worldwide.

It effectively addresses jowl lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periorbital wrinkle reduction, and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation in targeted areas.

When Will I See Results from MED:HIFU?

Results begin to manifest after the MED: HIFU Ultra+ Body treatment, with visible toning and tightening.

However, the full effects unfold over 3 – 6 months as your body naturally produces collagen and regenerates skin tissue.

What Does MED:HIFU Feel Like?

Described as a painless procedure, MED:HIFU delivers tiny amounts of energy to precise depths within the skin, initiating the collagen-building process.

Sensations vary from pinpricks to heat, and discomfort is temporary.

Some clients take paracetamol before the procedure, though it’s generally not necessary.

Do Men Have MED:HIFU Treatment?


MED:HIFU Ultra+ is suitable for both men and women, offering an effective solution for lifting jowls, tightening skin, and reversing the signs of aging without any downtime.

MED:HIFU Treatment Side Effects?

Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, tingling, or tenderness.

These fade within days, and rarer side effects are discussed during a face-to-face consultation with your aesthetic practitioner.

How Painful Is MED:HIFU?

The MED:HIFU Ultra+ Body treatment is non-invasive with no downtime, and discomfort levels vary.

Most clients tolerate the procedure well, and any temporary discomfort can be managed with paracetamol if needed.

In conclusion, MED:HIFU Ultra+ emerges as a safe, effective, and convenient solution for those seeking a non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation.

Experience the magic of MED:HIFU – your key to timeless, radiant skin!
