HIFU emits focused ultrasound below the surface of your skin to stimulate the generation of collagen. This lifts and tones skin.

Our Benefits page provides more information about the positive effects of the HIFU beauty technique. 

Yes, although it can have other applications. Our ULTRAISER P1 device and ULTRAISER eHM15 clinic device have been designed for use on the face for the purpose of lifting and tightening facial skin. Unlike surgical facelift procedures, HIFU is a non-invasive treatment that requires no recovery period.

Collagen makes up about 75% of your skin and is the most abundant natural protein in your body. Collagen keeps skin firmed, toned and elastic, however, as we age, it can lose some of its elasticity. This is where treatments such as HIFU come in – they stimulate the generation of more collagen in the skin.

HIFU is considered the safest treatment for skin tightening and lifting following clinical studies as well as the results of tens of thousands of treatments performed worldwide. Our ULTRAISER products have been extensively tested in the UK and South Korea.

Extremely well. Comparison information against other treatments is available on our Benefits page.

The healthline.com website, in its 2019 article about HIFU wrote: “If you’re looking for a treatment that is quick, painless, and noninvasive, HIFU is an excellent option compared to a surgical facelift.” 

No, it doesn’t which is one of the reasons we were able to develop the ULTRAISER product for home use outside of clinics. HIFU has been called the ‘Lunchtime Facelift’ because of its relatively quick application (approx. 20 - 30 minutes) and zero downtime afterwards. Now you can use anytime you want at home (maximum twice a week).

Yes. Our ULTRAISER P1 product comes with full, easy-to-understand instructions. Our Certification page also provides CE and other certification for the ULTRAISER device.

The P1 device is lightweight and compact and is about the same size as an electric razor. It weighs only 260g and easily fits into a handbag or pouch bag. Apart from the power supply which is plugged in to charge the device, the unit is completely self-contained for easy storage.

Results in terms of skin lifting and tightening results are typically expected after 2-3 treatments although in some cases, results are seen after the first treatment.

For best results, it is advisable to use the ULTRAISER P1 device every one or two weeks.

There may be a warming sensation of the skin while the device is in use and some parts of the face may feel more painful than others although this should be tolerable. If you experience severe pain you should stop immediately and refer back to the instructions.

There are two types of cartridge and we provide the 2mm cartridge (and gel) as standard with our ULRAISER P1 device. The 2mm cartridge can be used on most areas of the face. The 4mm cartridge provides deeper penetration so should only be used on the cheeks, nasolabial folds and under the chin.

We recommend using the ULTRAISER Gel but you can use other cosmetic ultrasound gels if our gel is not immediately available.
