HIFU Treatment Cost
What is the cost of HIFU Treatment?
High-intensity focused ultrasound [HIFU] is a relatively new aesthetic skin treatment on the high street and is the best non surgical face lift treatment that uses waves of sound to tighten skin and lift sagging or ageing skin.
HIFU works by encouraging collagen production, which leads to firmer lifted skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face or other body areas.
This non-invasive alternative treatment to surgery is becoming more popular because not only does it work fast, its minimally invasive, unlike going under the knife or cosmetics surgery so there’s no downtime in comparison.
However, when looking at the cost of HIFU skin treatments, two main factors need to be taken into account before having a non invasive HIFU treatment.
In this article will briefly explain the two main factors, how it works and the benefits of having a non surgical facelift to improve sagging skin in just one treatment.

How much does HIFU treatment cost?
HIFU Face treatment costs depend on two main factors:
- The layers of skin the ultrasound energy is required to reach to improve skin laxity
- The size of the area you want treating.
As an example, a HIFU Neck Lift treatment will cost more than a HIFU Eye lift treatment.
A skin tightening treatment, similar to radiofrequency uses a single layer of micro-energy will cost less than a neck and jawline lift as this treatment requires 3-layers of micro energy.
How does HIFU Face Treatment work?
A single layer of micro energy is for instant skin tightening and plumping similar to radio frequency and the multi layering of the micro energy penetrates deeper into layers of the skin to reach down past the dermis layer to the smas layer to a pinpoint which will lift the skin and create the longer-lasting lift and firmness.
Price of HIFU Face Treatment
When calculating the cost of a HIFU Treatment, the cost of the different depth cartridges are the same, the number of shots from each cartridge has the same, the cost to the clinic owner of the device to deliver the energy is the same.
Further, the skin products used to remove the gel and treat the skin will be the same regardless of the depth or surface area to be treated.
The variable in the HIFU treatment cost is calculated based on the number of shots required to produce different desired outcomes and the time it takes to complete the treatments.
In summary, the cost of HIFU face treatment will vary depending on how deep and the layering of the energy you need for the desired result.
If you want skin tightening it will be a single layer of micro energy, but if you want to lift your skin this requires 3 layers of micro energy to create the structure, tone and firmness.
The more energy required, the higher your shot count will be and therefore the higher the cost of HIFU treatment.
For example, for a non-surgical eye lift treatment, to smooth the skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area and lift the brow, this is a very delicate area, and the skin is thinner than your jawline, so there will only require a single layer of the micro-ultrasound energy.
A half-face jawline treatment, which needs more layers of energy to lift sagging skin, will cost more per treatment in any skin clinic.
The deepest layer focuses down to the smas layer of skin, the next layer stimulates collagen production plumping and targets the hypodermis layer, then to complete the treatment, a top layer of energy is required in the epidermis to tighten and firm the skin.
The next factor is the size of the area you want to treat.
How many shots are required for HIFU Treatment?
For the HIFU face-lift treatment, commonly, the focus is under the chin and up the jawline, or it might be the entire neck area that concerns you the most.
So as an example, individually, these areas require 3 layers of energy and would use approx. 500-600 shots in total to produce the skin lift and new collagen.
HIFU eye lift is a smaller focus area and can only take a single layer of energy due to the delicate nerves and fat pad tissue. So this would commonly only take 300 shots and would have less recovery time.
Alternatively, you have all those areas done in one single treatment, and this you create a shot count of up to 1200 shots
The non surgical facelift HIFU treatment cost depends on the depth of the energy and the size of the area you want to treat. Small areas such as eyes, just under chin or forehead would cost less than a jawline and cheeks [medium area]. So if you want you under the chin, jawline, cheeks, and eyes, that will be a large area and will cost you more.
The results from the non surgical HIFU face treatment will take time to be felt, approx 12 weeks for the lift as the energy is penetrated deep into the layers of the skin, where as the skin tightening treatment which is ideal for fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet around the eyes and is a fantastic alternative to invasive cosmetic surgical procedure such as dermal fillers as this treatment is non invasive and there is no downtime, with long lasting results compared botox and filler.
The results can be felt after just one treatment and are long-lasting up to six months, depending on the quality of your skin laxity and collagen levels.
