what is it?
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a completely non-surgical treatment that has two different setting options and results:
1. Lift, rejuvenate & tighten the skin
2. Permanent fat loss treatment
This procedure is your next best thing to a surgical face & body lift or fat reduction without a knife in sight.

ABOUT THE TREATMENT
HIFU therapy uses ‘ultrasound energy’, which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Lasers, on the other hand, rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature – so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin.
*Every HIFU treatment includes a complimentary LED facial 2-3 months after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a completely non-surgical treatment that has two different options:
1. FOR REJUVENATION (LIFT, TIGHTEN, REJUVENATE): During treatment, ultrasound is micro-focused below the skin’s surface to cause cellular friction and precise, pinpoint heating. Like a magnifying glass focusing sunlight, heat is only generated at the focal point, leaving the skin’s surface and intervening tissue unaffected. The tissue at the focal point is heated to around 65 degrees Celsius, causing immediate collagen contraction and denaturation, which initiates superior collagen synthesis.
2. FOR FAT LOSS (PERMANENT FAT LOSS IN ARES WITH UNWANTED FAT): The setting specifically designed for fat loss creates heat that destroys fat cells in the target area. You will feel warmth and vibration from the handpiece. In some cases, the treatment may feel slightly uncomfortable. However, most clients report it to be tolerable.
For rejuvenation: This results in an instant lift. The optimal lifting and toning outcome will occur over the following 2-3 months when the new collagen stimulation starts. During this time, old collagen is replaced with new collagen with a higher level of elasticity. The effects usually last 9-12 months.
For fat loss: Results can be seen from 2 - 4 months post-treatment. The fat reduction depends on the treatment area, how your body responds to the treatment and varies from person to person. Results are permanent if you maintain your normal weight, diet, and exercise.

The girls at Skinlux Booragoon are very friendly, caring and flexible. I also appreciate their honesty and level of knowledge with the treatments they offer. Their store can get busy, yet they always look relaxed and willing to help, never stressed or rushed. It is also very easy to get in touch with them to change appointments or ask post-treatment questions. I feel well taken care of!Claudia Bernedo
I have become a regular client of Skinlux since moving to the suburb in 2019. My favourite skin specialist consultant is Narelle. I am old school, I prefer the hands on touch to technology. Narelle has introduced me to treatments which combine both and still allow me to leave feeling nurtured and nourished. My most favourite treatment is the Deluxe Signature Facial. What I appreciate the most is the consistency of excellent service, attention to detail and friendly efficient manner in which all treatments are carried out with care. The second thing I love about this place is that it is situated outside of the Garden City, so that I do not have to enter the shopping centre but have the choice of whether I would like to peruse the shops or not either before or after or not at all.Sorelle Miller
