MED: HIFU Ultra 7D

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) treatment has become one of the most sought-after lifting treatments for face, neck & body without going under the knife.

MED: HIFU Ultra 7D is the latest non-surgical technology using High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and Micro-Macro Focused Ultrasound (MMFU) to deliver a non-invasive face, neck and body lifting treatment. HIFU Ultra 7D is not only good for skin lifting and tightening; it also helps with lines, wrinkles, pores, skin tone, and laxity. Just one session can tighten and lift the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin tone, providing visible results that will last up to 3 years.

The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments. ​​The SMAS layer is the same area tightened during conventional surgery, however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no downtime.

RT Aesthetics is the only clinic in the North of England to offer MED: HIFU Ultra 7D facial treatments. MED: HIFU Ultra 7D results are 92% more effective with an increase rate of 97% client satisfaction and all have their own serial number for safety.

MED: HIFU Ultra 7D Treatment

MED: HIFU Ultra 7D is medical grade and has proven success across the UK. Results last between 18 months and 3 years which is great and a lot more effective than standard. HIFU treatment is a highly precise medical procedure using high intensity focused ultrasound MFU technology to heat and destroy pathogenic tissue rapidly. While normal HIFU devices fire 1 line into the skin, MED: HIFU Ultra 7D uses the latest . This allows more energy to penetrate the skin, thus offering better tightening effects. The MED: HIFU Ultra 7D cartridges is guaranteed to tighten more skin in one session than standard HIFU devices. With advanced sensors and ultrasound map scanning we can produce better results with less discomfort and side effects.

HIFU was first developed and widespread for the treatment of prostate cancer. Scientist seen that the men’s genitals were starting to firm & tighten. This was then developed into tightening and lifting the face, neck and décolletage. HIFU was approved to lift skin on the neck, jowls, eyebrow, chin, décolletage and proven to improve lines and wrinkles in 2009 and 2012.

HIFU individually targets face, brow, jowl and neck lifting, as well as overall skin tightening, rejuvenation and deeper fat cells. The technology is unique in its ability to penetrate the dermis and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer, which is deeper than all other non-invasive treatments. The SMAS layer is the same area tightened during conventional surgery, however, unlike surgery, HIFU is more affordable and requires no downtime.

HIFU fires ultrasound waves that cause micro injuries deep under the surface of the skin, this results in an increase production of collagen and leads to a firmer and tighter skin. HIFU treatment for the body uses deeper levels of HIFU, this effectively breaks down the fat cells whilst also firming & tightening the skin. HIFU face-lifting can be used for blurred jawlines, nasal folds, sagging eyelids, loose neck folds, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone or texture and large pores. RT Aesthetics HIFU machines have many different cartridges, these can treat various problem areas at the same time.

more information

MED: HIFU Ultra 7D 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*


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Is HIFU like a facelift?

    MED: HIFU Ultra procedures treats the deep foundational layer that is addressed during cosmetic surgery, but will not duplicate results of a facelift. MED: HIFU Ultra is a great alternative to having surgery and is one the last procedures you can have before looking to have surgery to treat a problem area. However, many clients do not want to have surgery, or for those clients that want to extend the effects of pre/post cosmetic surgery, then HIFU treatment may be an option for you.

  • Is HIFU Treatment Safe?

    Certificated by the FDA and CE cleared for eyebrow lifting this high-intensity focused ultrasosund (HIFU) device also achieve excellent aesthetic outcomes in jowl lifting, nasolabial fold reduction, periobital wrinkle reduction and overall skin tightening and rejuvenation in targeted areas. Ultra therapy has been used safely in over 200,000 treatments worldwide.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Do men have 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
