HIFU - Focus Dual: 2-In-1 Multi System
A unique combination of two clinically proven technologies- Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling, using ultra-fine needles and a unique vacuum system, and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) - to lift, firm and tighten the skin.
How does Focus Dual work?
Radio Frequency Micro-Needling
RF Microneedling uses ultra-fine, sterilised needles to deliver heat directly to specific layers of the skin to improve skin elasticity, wrinkles, acne scarring, as well as lifting the skin. The needles stimulate a wound healing response, in a controlled manner, leading to the production of new collagen and elastin. Results are natural and get better and better over time.
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
This non-surgical face lift works on the SMAS layer, deep below the skin. This is the area that surgeon’s tighten for face and neck lifts. The HIFU offers a non-surgical alternative using ultrasound technology to radiate energy to the SMAS layer to tighten, lift and plump the skin.
Duration of treatment – From 45 minutes – 2 hours depending on the treatment and the areas treated.
Anaesthesia required – Most patients are comfortable during the procedures, but application of topical anaesthetic can be used if having the Micro needling Radio Frequency.
Downtime – Slight swelling, redness and tingling post treatment.
Final results – RF Microneedling: Results are natural and continue to improve over time, peaking 12 weeks following the final treatment.
Final results – HIFU - Results can be seen immediately and will continue to 12 weeks post-treatment.
Suitable for – All skin types.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatments take between 45 minutes and 2 hours depending on the areas being treated and procedure carried out.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
RF Microneedling results:
Most patients see an improvement 2-3 weeks after the first treatment. Results are natural and get better over time, peaking 12 weeks following the final treatment.
Results can be seen immediately, and will continue to 12 weeks post-treatment.
DOES THE TREATMENT HURT AND HAVE ANY DOWNTIME?
RF Microneedling: It can cause a prickling sensation and feeling of heat. Slight swelling and redness are present immediately post-treatment. There’s a possibility of some micro crusting following the
HIFU: Due to the non-invasive nature of HIFU treatments, there is usually virtually no downtime. You may experience slight redness following the treatment, and a small percentage experience minor swelling, tingling or tenderness. These symptoms are mild and temporary..
WHO IS THIS TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR?
RF Microneedling: Those with Scarring, a need to improve Skin Texture, Fine lines and wrinkles and Stretch Marks.
HIFU: High Intensity Focused Ultrasound may not be appropriate for everyone. In general, the procedure works best on those with mild-to-moderate skin laxity, to help lift and tighten Jowls, Neck, Cheeks.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
RF Microneedling: Results can be seen after just one session. However, a minimum of 2 and up to 6 treatments, at 4-week intervals, deliver the best results, depending on the skin concern.
HIFU: 1-3 sessions may be required to lift and tighten the skin. Best results are achieved by combining HIFU with Radio Frequency Micro-needling.
We expect results to last 1-2 years, but this can be dependent on other factors, such as lifestyle and maintenance treatments.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED
RF Microneedling: Face, Eyes, Mouth, Stretch Marks, Scarring.
HIFU: Face and neck, areas of the body
