Midcheek and nasolabial fold lift

Giving the face a more youthful appearance through HIFU, our mid-cheek and nasolabial fold lift is a non-surgical method of tightening and rejuvenating the skin. Lynton is the only manufacturer used by the NHS and has proven results. Achieving a youthful facial look is made possible with our non-surgical mid-cheek and nasolabial fold lift, utilising HIFU technology for skin tightening and rejuvenation. Our approach effectively targets these areas. Treatment sessions typically span 40 minutes to an hour, and achieving desired results may necessitate multiple sessions.


On the day of treatment


  • We will go through your consent form, which will have been emailed before the session to you, and you will then be asked to sign a physical copy.
  • The doctor will then cleanse your skin so that he can assess it.
  • During his assessment, he will look at skin thickness and quality along with the underlying muscles to determine the injection points needed.
  • An Ultrasound probe will be used to administer heat to the SMAS layer of connective tissue to tighten and lift the face.

Our Process

HIFU uses ultrasound technology to heat up the connective tissue layer below the dermis called the SMAS. 3 Ultrasound probes, each administering 20 degrees of heat, meet each other 3-4.5mm below the skin’s surface. This combined temperature of 60 degrees stimulates the SMAS to produce fibroblasts as a protective measure. These fibroblasts stimulate collagen production which tightens the SMAS. As the SMAS is connected to the fat pads above it, when it tightens the skin tightens. This results in a lifting effect across the entire treatment area.

As we age, our midcheek loses volume and our superficial fat pads sink to create a deep nasolabial fold. To counter this effect and achieve a more youthful appearance, we employ HIFU technology to tighten the skin. These treatment sessions typically take between 30-40 minutes. Results are apparent after 1-2 months and 1-2 treatments are required yearly to maintain collagen levels.


  • Avoid sun exposure: Shield the treated area from direct sunlight and use sunscreen with high SPF.
  • Gentle cleansing: Cleanse the area with moisturiser to maintain skin hydration. 
  • Avoid strenuous activities: Refrain from intense workouts or activities that may cause excessive sweating for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid hot baths and saunas for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid abrasive products: Stay away from harsh scrubs or exfoliants on the treated area for a while.
  • Follow-up care: Adhere to scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any concerns.
