Advantages of HiFU (Highly focused Ultrasound)
HiFU has become an extremely popular nonsurgical option for skin tightening. It represents a real alternative to surgery for the patients with the right expectations and skin condition. When performed correctly by trained hands it is only mildly uncomfortable but delivers excellent result for a procedure that does not require any cutting or needles. It is the perfect treatment for the needle phobic patient who wants tangible results.

The face is cleaned and marked. Important Nerves are marked as an area not to treat. The treatment head is the placed on the skin and the treatment commenced. It usually takes 30-45 minutes perform and there is slight discomfort as the energy levels are raised until they are just about tolerable. Once the treatment is over a soothing cream is placed and you are free to leave. The skin will feel a little tingly and slightly flushed but you will be presentable.

Usually around 90 days.
The changes will never be as dramatic as surgery but as a non surgical technique it delivers a noticeable natural change.
No, you may return back to normal activities the next day.
There is temporary discomfort but nothing more.
Usually between 12-18 months.

I can’t recommend EA clinic enough. I have had several procedures there now (vaser liposuction, mole removal and peels) and between Gill and Dr Anthony I have been so well looked after. They are consistently professional, passionate and clear in the options they provide you. Whether it is consultation, procedure or aftercare Dr Anthony always has so much time to make you feel at ease and fully informed. Both Gill and Dr Anthony are also friendly which is so lovely and welcoming as a patient. Overall I feel so much happier and confident since seeing the team at EA Clinic.
