High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU Facelift is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment procedure that tightens and lifts the skin using ultrasound energy.

It is taken to be a safe and effective procedure for tightening the facial skin.

HIFU was initially used in the treatment of tumors up until 2008 when its importance in skin treatment was discovered and approved in 2014.

Since then, it has been used to improve lines and wrinkles of the upper chest region and the neckline.

It also removes excess skin from the face, tightens the tissues under the skin while repositioning the face and neck skin.

1. Treatment Regions

HIFU can be done for the full face as well as the neck.

However, it is common for professionals to break down the treatments into smaller treatments for smaller areas like "eye region" and "lower face."

What type of treatment you get is dependent on the extremity of the condition. The smaller the region, the lesser the cost.

2. Doctor's Skill & Experience

This also affects the costs as well-trained, and experienced doctors may use specialized techniques that will achieve better results.

These specialized techniques will definitely come at extra costs too.

It is a fact that, in most cases, skilled and experienced doctors will charge more than inexperienced doctors.

3. Brand of HIFU

Although there is no guarantee that one HIFU device is better than the other, some of them cost more than the others.

The cost of the device will definitely reflect on the cost of the treatment. 

4. Number of Shots

Although there are standard protocols for the number of HIFU shots to each region of the face, some clinics choose to customize these protocols.

The customized protocols will reflect on the cost of the treatment too.

5. Location and Consultation Fees

Clinics situated in prime areas will definitely cost more, so you can expect to pay for the prime location and the posh clinic interiors should you choose to get treated there.

Consultation fees and clinic overheads are generally not included in the listed prices for treatments.


Tips to Avoid Getting Overpriced HIFU Treatment


One of the ways to avoid overpaying for a HIFU treatment is to determine if you need full or partial coverage.

There is no need to pay for full coverage when you need only partial coverage.

It all depends on the severity of what you intend to correct.

The other way is to determine the number of shots that you need for the treatment.

Inquiring about the type of devices will help you figure out the number of shots that are required for the treatment you need.
