HIFU targets the body to rid small pockets of fat and tightens loose sagging skin.



HIFU Body treatments are the latest in non-invasive technology to target specific focused areas of fat and loose skin in the quickest way possible.

MED: HIFU Body is very effective for tightening the skin and offering a small amount of fat reduction. HIFU Body is the latest technology to target a fat and tighten the skin. It works by firing focused ultrasound energy into the skin that destroys fat cells and tightens the skin at the SMAS layer. This is the muscle layer of the skin and the same layer targeted during surgery. The heat caused from the treatment effectively destroys the fat cells and tightens the surface of the skin.

HIFU Body is very effective for tightening loose sagging skin on the stomach, arms and legs.

Prior to your MED: HIFU Ultra Body treatment the following advice is recommended, this will ensure you gain the best possible results from the treatment and prevent any adverse reactions. The pre-care advice is as follows:

  • Increase water intake by at least 1.5 litres
  • It’s recommended that male clients come to their appointment clean shaven
  • Avoid any exfoliation or chemical peels for 7 days prior to your treatment
  • Avoid alcohol consumption for minimal of 48 hours prior to your appointment
  • Allow 2 weeks before IPL treatments in the area that you wish to have treated
  • Avoid sun-beds or direct UV exposure for a minimal of 1 week prior to your appointment
  • Avoid any exfoliating products 5 days pre and post treatment
  • If you have any open sores, acne, infection or skin sensitivity in the area we cannot treat with HIFU

We would recommend that you take some painkillers before your appointment as this can help reduce any pain from the treatment. Paracetamol is the one we would recommend, and we would advise to take this 1 hour before your HIFU appointment.

After your MED: HIFU Ultra treatment the following advice is recommended, this will ensure you gain the best possible results from the treatment and prevent any adverse reactions. The aftercare advice is as follows:

  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water daily, keep a large bottle with you at all times and infuse with lemons and limes for flavour, this will flush out the lipids (dead fat cells) out of your body through the lymphatic system
  • Exercise minimum of 1 hour per week as this will assist in the metabolism of the dead fat cells and contribute to healthy lifestyle
  • Follow a healthy eating diet plan (we offer these on our website, head over and click ‘Shop’ and then ‘Healthy Eating Plans’) and reduce your intake of alcohol, carbohydrates and caffeine during the treatment program
  • Regular body brushing at home, this is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells, do this twice daily for 2 minutes
  • Use the RT Organics Body Sculpt Oil daily when body brushing to help assist the removal of dead fat cells and promote good blood flow
  • Take 2 scoops off RT Aesthetics 20:80 inulin powder daily, mix with any liquid or food
  • Avoid hot baths or showers, steam or heat treatments for 24 hours
  • Avoid Aspirin and Ibuprofen during the treatment program
  • Lymphatic massage will accelerate the process of removing the fat cells
  • Avoid sun-beds or direct UV exposure for a minimum of 1 week
  • Apply an SPF or SPF moisturiser daily to keep the skin hydrated and protected from UV rays
  • Allow 2 weeks before/after IPL treatments in the area that you wish to have treated

* 3 – 6 months is the estimated time to see the maximum results, however we have had clients report good results after only 4 – 6 weeks.

  • Ultrasound gel is then applied to the face, this is to ensure that no heat is felt on the skin surface of the skin and to allow the HIFU energy to be absorbed effectively into the desired skin layers
  • You will feel a sensation of heat, small pin pricks and movement under the skin, this is not painful but can be uncomfortable for some clients
  • Please do not worry, we will ensure you’re comfortable on the day of your treatment and the paracetamol taken before the treatment will help
  • At the end of the treatment the Aesthetic Practitioner will clean the face and remove any excess gel and apply a cooling gel

HIFU Science

HIFU creates a focal point of energy exposing adipocytes at 13mm or 7mm to temperatures of 60-65ºC. Exposing the fat cell to these high temperatures for just one second causes rapid cell death by coagulative necrosis. The fat cells are unable to reproduce themselves and are naturally passed out through the body.

Recommended HIFU Body Clients

HIFU Body is recommended for clients who have loose skin and a smaller pocket of fat that cannot be treated with MED: Cryolipolysis. This is because Cryolipolysis is more effective for larger areas of fat as these treatments are clinically proven to work more effectively in these body shapes. The treatment is used more for skin tightening and therefore clients who have loose skin will see better results.

HIFU is ideal for body contouring post pregnancy tummy, abdomen fat, bingo wings, thighs and under the buttocks; for a non-surgical bum lifting effect. It can even tighten the skin on the knees and arms, helping to improve the ‘crepey’ look. HIFU is a very effective treatment for both inch loss and fat loss – at the same time tightening the skin!

more information

MED: HIFU Ultra 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 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.

An immediate effect can be seen following HIFU treatment, with clients facial contours, skin tone and texture, and wrinkles showing improvement within 8 weeks post-treatment. The effects of HIFU treatment continues to work for up to 6 months as the collagen fibres reorganises and restructure themselves. Clients will notice further improvements, such as skin firming and tightening over the 3 – 6 month period. Results from one treatment will last between 12 - 36 months depending on client’s current skin laxity and age. Our aesthetic practitioner will go through this during the consultation and design a treatment plan design around your own individual goals and needs.

HIFU Results
Clients will see a 20% result immediately with the remaining 80% appearing over the next 2-3 months. In the majority of cases only one treatment per year will be needed, however, if you feel you would like more further treatments, this can be done at 6 monthly intervals. Generally, only one or two sessions are required. Benefits from HIFU treatment can be seen within 4 weeks, with further gains being reported for up to six months*


  • HIFU Treatment Side Effects?

    After the MED: HIFU Ultra treatment the skin may appear ‘flushed’ at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours post-treatment. Some clients experience light swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, however, these are temporary and will fade within 7 – 10 days post-treatment. Less common side effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, there are the possibility for rarer side effects, which your aesthetic practitioner will review with you during your face-to-face consultation.

  • Do Men Have The HIFU Treatment?

    Men are very good candidates for the MED: HIFU Ultra Facelift treatment since there is no recovery time needed, allowing men to immediately return to their daily activities. The MED: HIFU Ultra treatment is great for both men and women. We see many men at our clinic who opt to have the HIFU treatment to help lift jowls, tighten skin and help turn back the years.

  • How Does HIFU Treatment Work?

    MED: HIFU Ultra (high intensity focused ultrasound) energy is beamed below the skin in 3 different layers. HIFU effects three layers of the superficial and dermis along with SMAS, which is the same layer of tissue that surgeons pull tight in a face lift. As a thermal energy safely heats this tissue, the skin contracts resulting in tightening of the skin and formation of new collagen, which provides a longer-term tightening effect.

  • How Painful Is HIFU?

    The MED: HIFU Ultra treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure with no downtime, allowing clients to resume daily activities immediately after treatment. The MED: HIFU Ultra discomfort levels vary from client to client, while most clients tolerating the procedure well. However, clients who have a lower pain threshold can take paracetamol to help ease any discomfort. Any pain or discomfort associated with the MED: HIFU Ultra treatment are only temporary and will only last during the procedure.

  • How Many HIFU Treatments Are Needed?

    Many clients only need one treatment of MED: HIFU Ultra. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the clients collagen-building process, some clients benefit from additional treatment after 8 – 12 weeks. Results from HIFU treatment can be seen within 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 – 3 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 ageing process.

  • Treatment Areas For HIFU?

    The MED: HIFU Ultra facelift treatment is perfect for treating and targeting signs of ageing around the eyes, mouth and neck. HIFU treatment can also target the neck, jawline and décolletage. This helps to reduce signs of double chins, sagging neck and jawlines, resulting in a tighter, firmer and more defined neck and jawline. HIFU treatment can treat the following areas: Forehead, Frown Lines, Eyebrows, Crow’s Feet, Cheeks, Double Chins, Sagging Neck, Jowls, Décolletage and Face.

  • What Does HIFU Feel Like?

    The HIFU treatment is not a painful procedure. As the high-intensity focused ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths within the skin. This is an indication that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Most clients describe feeling either pin pricks sensation or a feeling of heat. Comfort levels vary from client to client, however, this sensation is only temporary and last while the ultrasound energy is administered. Some clients take paracetamol before the procedure to ease any discomfort., although this is not necessary.

  • What To Expect After The HIFU Treatment?

    Clients may develop redness, swelling or tingling of the face following from the HIFU facial treatment. These symptoms are not permanent and will usually fade within hours after treatment. RT Aesthetics do provide a cream prior to you leaving the clinic, this helps settle the skin and is available for you to buy to take home and use. During this time the effects of the MED: HIFU Ultra treatment will signal the production of new collagen and the process of regeneration. MED: HIFU Ultra skin tightening treatment are clinically proven to be safe and effective, with natural and gradual rejuvenation effects.

  • When Will I See Results From HIFU?

    After your MED: HIFU Ultra treatment, many clients see some initial results, such as toning and feel tight around the face and neck straight after the treatment. However, the results take place over 3 – 6 months, as your body naturally starts the production of collagen and regenerates the skin tissue. As the production of new collagen begins, how long the results last really depends on the clients’ own natural ageing process. The MED: HIFU Ultra treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the natural ageing process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the inside. Results can list for up to 2 – 3 years, however, clients that look after their skin can look forward to long-lasting effects from just one treatment.

  • Is HIFU Treatment Safe?
