High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) delivers precise, focused energy at greater depths below the skin surface, to produce a thermal coagulation points to sub-dermal connective tissue, as well as the superficial dermis, to encourage the generation of more collagen. This deeper wound healing response generates collagen production at multiple levels.

The HIFU Level 4 Course carries 9 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material.

Our Level 4 is suitable for Medical professionals and Aesthetic practitioners and includes a substantial theory component and a three-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams.

In the course, we will cover how to prepare for and carry out HIFU treatments safely, covering necessary legislation, core knowledge and science behind the treatment as well as how best to handle the equipment and maximise treatment results.

In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare.
