HIFU Face Lift Treatment

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-surgical face lifting treatment to counter skin laxity. HIFU delivers ultrasound energy deep into the skin and muscle layer to encourage collagen stimulation for an effective natural lifting effect.

HIFU is the most common alternative for surgical facelifts as it allows high-frequency beams to penetrate with precision deep below the skin’s surface without damaging the surrounding skin tissue, requiring no incisions and no prolonged recovery time.

With natural ageing, the skin loses collagen and elastin in the dermis, resulting in saggy skin and wrinkles. HIFU is effective in addressing skin laxity as it kickstarts collagen and elastin production in skin to keep it firm and tight. Many have chosen HIFU for the removal of double chin or cheek fats to achieve a V Shape Face too.  

HIFU Face Lift gives similar results as a surgical facelift without invasive surgeries, downtime and complications. After the HIFU procedure, you can resume back to normal activities.

How does HIFU work?

HIFU utilises medical-grade ultrasound energy which penetrate deep into the skin at precise depths for effective skin tightening to achieve a lifted youthful appearance.

The ultrasound energy heats up the tissue below the skin’s surface, reaching 60-70 degrees celsius to trigger new collagen growth and promote effective healing and tissue repair, which eventually improves skin tone and texture. The heat generated also melts fats under the skin, making it effective for double chin removal.

HIFU Face Lift Treatment is FDA approved in Singapore for improving wrinkles and lifting skin. The process does not hurt the surrounding skin as it targets only the tissue that is present below the surface of your skin.

How deep does HIFU go?

HIFU targets three key layers: Epidermis, Deep Dermis and the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, which are facial muscles normally worked on by cosmetic surgeons for a traditional facelift.

At 1.5mm depth, it reaches the superficial dermis to be able to reduce melanin to lighten pigmentation and brighten skin.

At 3mm depth, the energy reaches the deep dermis for a skin tightening effect by controlled heating of skin tissue and stimulation of collagen production

At 4.5mm depth, it reaches the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) for a skin lifting effect.

What areas can be treated with HIFU?

HIFU is effective in reducing signs of ageing on the face and neck. Common fine lines and wrinkles such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines, smile lines and neck lines can be treated by HIFU. To achieve V Shape Face, HIFU can remove double chin, saggy jowls and chubby cheeks for a more defined jawline.
