What is RF Microneedling and how does it differ from normal Microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure that uses very fine sterile needles that penetrate the skin causing micro-wounds that stimulate wound healing. RF Microneedling combines microneedling with radiofrequency heat energy to amplify collagen and elastin production. Results are considerably improved using RF Microneedling.
What is HIFU?
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. HIFU lifts, firms and tightens skin and targets fine lines and wrinkles. The device has the ability to reach the SMAS layer of the skin giving fantastic results - this is the layer usually tightened by plastic surgeons during aesthetic surgery!
HFIU is completely non-invasive with very little downtime - hence its rapidly increasing popularity.
A combination of both RF Microneedling and HIFU provides an extremely effective rejuvenation to the skin’s appearance, its lift and a markedly tightened elasticity.
With Focus Dual we can treat:
- Ageing skin (Wrinkles and fine lines, including smoker lines and pigmentation)
- Acne and surgical scars
- Loose, sagging and crepey skin (this includes lax skin around the eyebrow)
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Milia (bumps on the skin)
- Large pores
- Loss of facial volume
- Dull and lacklustre skin
- Fat reduction
- Body sculpting including jawline definition

Utilising microneedles to puncture the skins surface we can help to improve a variety of different skin concerns such as: textural and ageing concerns such as acne scars, skin laxity, stretch marks, open pores, and wrinkles. Radiofrequency microneedling helps to improve the overall appearance and rejuvenation of skin, through the delivery of heat to the deeper layers of skin, causes the collagen structures within these layers to tighten.
The radiofrequency energy, directs heat to the more superficial dermis and epidermis, simulating the production of collagen and elastin. The heat zones created helps with collagen induction, which begins to remodel and strengthen collagen cells to tighten the skin. By inducing thermal trauma to stimulate neocollagenesis (collagen production) in deep layers of the skin, creates stronger, firmer, and more lifted skin to help with concerns such as wrinkles and laxity.
Unlike other devices the Focus Dual truly uses super fine ‘micro’ needles for safe, precise, and more comfortable treatments. With Focus Dual we can treat ALL skin types through the ability to adjust not only needle depth but also the power of radio frequency energy delivered in your treatment. This technology enables us to deliver effective treatments suitable to your different skin concerns, for all skin types.
Deep in the skin is the SMAS layer, this is the layer a surgeon will physically lift in a facelift, being so deep it’s difficult to target with non-surgical treatments- until now! Focus Dual HIFU face lift creates deep focus points of coagulative necrosis, in the SMAS layer through heat zones. These heat zones kickstart the production of collagen and elastin, natural proteins needed for youthful looking skin.
The SMAS layer is immediately contracted without damage to the skin surface or surrounding tissues, this creates immediate tightening and lifting. As the skin’s wound healing response is triggered the skin naturally lifts, firms, and tightens over time. You will see that results continue to improve up to 12 weeks post treatment. Our HIFU technology can be adjusted to a range a depths, depending on your level of concern to reduce lines and wrinkles, crepeyness, laxity and excess fat.
In terms of results you can expect real changes that lift, firm and tighten jawlines, sculpt cheekbones, reduce under eye bags and lift brow areas. All in all, there is nothing better to give your skin back it’s SNAP!
Additionally, this innovative device utilises focused ultrasound waves to define, sculpt and reduce. This non-surgical fat reduction and skin tightening treatment focuses energy at specific depths into the subcutaneous fat layer, to disrupt stubborn fat cells without damaging non-targeted areas. The treated cells are then flushed away via the body’s natural detoxification processes. Furthermore, the heat generated during the treatment tightens the skin from the inside out. Focus Dual is the ideal treatment if you are looking to target multiple concerns with virtually no downtime. Focus Dual HIFU treatment should be used to complement a healthy lifestyle.
Safety Assist Transducers (SAT), unique to the Focus Dual, emit high intensity ultrasound waves in a unique pattern that allows for safer and more comfortable treatments for ALL skin types.

- Prior to treatment you will be invited in for a complimentary consultation, with one of aesthetic practitioners to discuss the areas you would like to treat, and the reasons for doing so. During this time, we will explain the treatment/ treatment plan in detail ensuring you fully understand the procedure.
- If you wish to go ahead with the treatment, we will double cleanse the treatment area
- The handpiece will then be placed on the skin in the target area directly on the skin. If you select to undergo HIFU treatment, the area will be marked in order to define the areas for treatment.
- Once the treatment is complete, post-treatment serum Light Soothe and Light Protect SPF 50 is applied to help soothe the skin and aid its recovery.
- Full results can be seen 12 weeks after the final treatment
