What Is HIFU?

HIFU facelift treatment is a non-invasive modality for skin tightening, lifting and enhancing elasticity. High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU treatment) has established itself as one of several treatment options for treating wrinkles and skin laxity worldwide.

How does HIFU Facelift Treatment work?

HIFU can penetrate to greater depths within the skin

HIFU facelift treatment uses high-intensity focused ultrasound beams to target specific areas underneath the skin.

This non-invasive method of delivery energy induces small hot spots (microcoagulation zones) from the dermis to the deeper superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). Subsequently, this leads to collagen and elastin contraction and remodelling. 

Without damaging surface skin (epidermis) and surrounding tissues, HIFU is associated with lower downtime and recovery.

How is the HIFU procedure done?

HIFU procedure (for illustration only)

A medical consultation and assessment will be conducted to assess your skin and areas of concern. 

A customised plan is developed based on the areas of concern, and recommendations of the type of transducers to be used during the HIFU facelift treatment procedure.

Prior to your HIFU treatment, the skin is cleansed and numbing cream is applied to ensure your comfort. During the HIFU treatment, ultrasound gel is applied gently on your skin. The transducer delivers precise high-intensity focused ultrasound energy to the targeted areas.
