The New Face of HIFU Facelifts – Doublo Gold HIFU

hifu face lift

The skin is the largest organ of the body and it can also, unfortunately, lose its elasticity very quickly. As we age, our skin starts to sag be it due to age, the sun or a host of other reasons. Keeping our skin supple and youthful is not just because of cosmetic reasons but can sometimes be for medical concerns too. Fortunately, there is now a large range of non-invasive treatments that can be found in clinics to help rejuvenate your face again and one of these methods of treatment can be found in Cambridge Medical with Doublo Gold HIFU which we will dive into later on.

The Advantages of Non-Surgical Facelifts

There are many obvious advantages to opting for non-surgical facelifts. Some of which are that they do not require open surgery, the treatments are quick, offer little to no discomfort and allow you to try a new look without it being permanent. These advantages make non-surgical facelifts a rather attractive alternative. 

Types of Non-Surgical Facelifts

Dermal Fillers

A treatment that is very commonly offered across the world, dermal fillers are a smooth-gel injectible consisting of Hyaluronic Acid that will immediately give volume to areas of the face such as the cheeks, temples, lips and under the eyes. By giving volume to areas that are sunken, dark shadows can be eliminated, giving the skin instant youthful vibrancy. Fillers can give the skin definition and smooth tissues to give a wrinkle-free appearance. [1]

This type of treatment will last from six months to over a year and will require regular maintenance.


Neurotoxins are a non-invasive treatment you’ve most likely already heard of and for a good reason. This is one of the best non-invasive treatments to reduce wrinkles on the face. Often used on the forehead, frown lines and crow’s feet, this treatment is popular for those whose main concern is ageing and wrinkles. 

By relaxing targeted muscles, neurotoxins help to smoothen the lines on your face giving immediate wrinkle relief. Results for this treatment can be seen within one to two weeks.

Fat Injections

Fat injections are a treatment that is semi-invasive. By using fatty tissue extracted from another part of the body, fat cells are processed and then reinjected into the face to enhance facial volume. These cells will then integrate with existing tissues, giving the face youthful contours for many years. 

Needleless Treatments

If needles scare you and you’re looking for a treatment that does not involve being injected or punctured in any way, needleless treatments are a worthy alternative. Chemical peels are one such treatment that can not only shrink large pores and improve general skin quality but is also possible to do at home. 

Chemical peels also help to exfoliate the skin, by getting rid of dry and damaged tissue. But this might not work for everyone and it depends on the type of skin you have. 

Besides chemical peels, there are other treatments such as Doublo Gold HIFU, which we offer, that delivers a natural yet noticeable difference to sagging skin. Within a few sessions, individuals can experience their skin appearing firmer and tauter. 

The Disadvantages of Non-Surgical Facelifts

As non-surgical facelifts are only temporary solutions to what you seek, they need to be maintained and repeated every few months to maintain what the treatments have given you. But the more you repeat the treatments, the less you actually have to go back to maintain the new youthful look you now have. 

For example, with dermal fillers, the treatment actually helps boost collagen production in the skin. This helps to create a sturdier layer beneath the skin which means your existing wrinkles are smoother and less visible with more treatments and fewer syringes of fillers will be needed in the future. 

However, nothing can stop ageing and as we grow older, our skin will show signs of ageing that we may not like. However, by sticking to a regular skincare routine and opting for facelift treatments, we might just be able to slow down the visible signs of ageing.

Doublo Gold HIFU Treatment

Using the latest technology, the Doublo Gold HIFU Treatment uses ultrasonic energy to help elevate the skin laxity in the face and neck. Highly popular from the HIFU treatment that was pioneered in South Korea, the treatment has been upgraded to give a faster shot speed of 300 shots per 8 minutes with its two-way round shooting technique. [2]

This treatment will help to tighten your skin through heat energy to stimulate collagen and elastin regeneration. To create lasting results, the HIFU treatment reaches the depths of the skin right through to the muscle layer to focus its regeneration there.

Benefits of Doublo Gold HIFU:

  • A quick treatment that you can do during lunch
  • Safe and tested
  • Comfortable
  • No pain or discomfort 
  • No bleeding
  • No downtime
  • Long-lasting results

With the improvement of the original HIFU treatment in South Korea, Doublo Gold HIFU technology halves the time needed to complete the treatment saving you time and giving you quicker results – all without the compromise of what you’d like to achieve. 

How is Doublo Gold HIFU Treatment Administered?

Using a handheld device, it sits on the surface of the skin with four different types of cartridges. These three different types of cartridges will be used as a combination that will help to achieve your skin goals from your conversation in the consultation prior to treatment.

The three different cartridges are:

  • 1.5mm – This size will be able to improve pore size and skin tone through the targeting of the upper dermis using a wound-healing effect. This helps to boost collagen and rebuild the skin’s fibroblast.
  • 3.0mm – This reaches the subcutaneous fat layer (almost before the muscle layer) and the derma layer to increase collagen production and elasticity.
  • 4.5mm – This helps to reach the deepest layer, the SMAS (found just before the muscle layer) and uses thermal energy to tighten the skin and give it a lifting effect to minimise wrinkles.

These are the effects that the Doublo Gold HIFU Treatment can achieve:

  • Jowl lift
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Reduction of pore size
  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • Nasolabial fold reduction
  • Double chin reduction
  • Facelift
  • Smoothen neck wrinkles

How Often Should I Go For HIFU Treatments:

For visible results, we would recommend one to two sessions with a follow-up session four to six months after. However, one session will also be enough for some though results vary from individuals. 

The results usually last for a year and results after treatment are most visible after ten weeks. While some patients might see immediate results, it is usually after three to six months that results will appear most noticeably. 

Who Is The Treatment Meant For?

We recommend this treatment for those aged 30 years old and above but also for those with mild to moderate skin laxity. This treatment can also be used with other treatments that you might already be going for but it is best to consult your doctor especially if you have sensitive skin.
