WHAT IS HIFU?

HIFU is short for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, HIFU is a non-surgical HIFU facelifting treatment that lifts and tightens the skin.

HIFU uses concentrated waves of ultrasound energy to precisely target deeper layers of tissue, leaving the skin surface undamaged. The technology induces an tissue coagulation that triggers wound healing and contraction, followed by a tighter and more uniform buildup of collagen fibers. Ultrasound energy can also target subcutaneous fat layers, reducing the prominence of areas with unwanted fat buildup.

How Long does HIFU treatment last?

Your Face Lift Solution

HIFU treatment lasts up to 1 year. Our thorough guide takes you through the typical duration of HIFU treatments, highlighting how this non-invasive approach can yield benefits that endure for up to 1 year.

Explore the factors that contribute to the one-year longevity of HIFU results, providing you with valuable insights for the months following the treatment.

IT ALL STARTS FROM THE DEEPEST SKIN LAYER - SMAS LAYER

Similar to surgical face lifts, HIFU targets the SMAS layer, a key structural layer often addressed in cosmetic surgery. However, it's important to note that HIFU offers a non-surgical approach. While both HIFU and surgical face lifts interact with the SMAS layer, they do so in different ways. HIFU uses ultrasound energy to target this layer, aiming to stimulate collagen production non-invasively. In contrast, surgical face lifts involve direct surgical alteration of the SMAS layer.

The outcomes, recovery times, and overall effects of these two treatments can differ significantly. HIFU is designed to offer a less invasive option with its own unique set of benefits.

HOW DOES HIFU FACE LIFT WORK?

HIFU FACE LIFT WORKS BY TARGETING THE SMAS LAYER

HIFU Face Lift works by using focused ultrasound energy, or heat energy to coagulate temperatures to the deeper layers of skin. This happens at between 60 – 70 degrees Celsius and contracts the existing collagen fibres that support your skin. Deepest penetration of energy in the market! HIFU targets up to 4.5mm beneath the skin.

HIFU FACE LIFT TREATMENT BEFORE & AFTER

BEFORE

A numbing cream will be applied prior to treatment to minimise any potential discomfort. There can be a pulling or tingling sensation every time energy is delivered, which will vary according to the depth of tissue and area of the face being treated.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING HIFU TREATMENT?

DURING TREATMENT

During the treatment proper, ultrasound gel is applied to allow the handpiece to glide and ensure adequate contact for transmission of the ultrasound waves. The ultrasound energy is applied line by line, using different handpieces to target the appropriate depths. The total number of lines or shots required will depend on the areas being treated, size of the face, and the condition of the skin.

Each patient's experience during treatment can vary, and our team will be there to guide you through each step.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER HIFU FACE LIFT THEREAPY?

AFTER

Following the procedure, there may be some transient redness or swelling but this will often resolve on its own within a few minutes to an hour. Minimal downtime and patients can resume their normal activities immediately thereafter. Makeup, usual skincare, and appropriate sun protection can all be resumed post-treatment.

FAQ

You will feel an immediate tightening of your skin in the treated area, as the heat from the Micro-Focused Ultrasound contracts the network of collagen fibres. The strands of protein that make up collagen shrink when exposed to the levels of heat used in HIFU Skin Lifting treatment.

HIFU Skin Lifting treatment is suitable for both men and womenCandidates in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin seeking improvement in:

(1) EYE AREA & CROW’S FEET
(2) FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
(3) SAGGING JOWL

A full-face treatment takes 30 to 45 minutes.

The procedure is well tolerated. The procedure might be associated with some mild discomfort that usually disappears immediately after the session.

No. It does not have any effect on the treatment, but it is recommended to schedule the BTX and fillers procedure after the Ultraformer session.

Patients may see some effect almost immediately. True results develop over time as old collagen is regenerated with new collagen. As this collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after the initial treatment patients see continuing improvement over time.

The results of HIFU treatment can be seen immediately, although the full effects may take several months to become apparent as collagen production continues. The treatment is generally considered safe, with few side effects, and does not require any downtime or recovery period.
