What is HIFU
What is HIFU?
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This is a quantum leap in technology harnessing focused Ultrasound heat energy to lift and tighten the facial and neck skin.
It is the latest non-invasive medical technology that has transformed how facelifts are performed today! HIFU is designed to perform non-invasive facelifts which are non-invasive with minimal downtime, maximum results and high safety profile.
How Does HIFU works?
HIFU accurately targets the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System(SMAS), deeper and superficial layers of the skin. This safe treatment protects the superficial skin layer(epidermis) while allowing deep and uniform penetration of heat into the skin at various depths of 4.5mm, 3.0mm and 1.5mm to stimulate collagen tightening, thickening & remodelling, and collagen formation. This progressively leads to a firm scaffolding matrix in the SMAS resulting in facial tightening, lifting and firming. This device also melts unwanted fat and is suitable for reducing double chin and lower face fats.

To ensure you experience a comfortable treatment process, a layer of numbing cream is applied on your face for half hour. After cleansing the face, HIFU treatment is applied. Patients will experience a warm and tingling sensation during the treatment. The face maybe mildly flushed post-treatment. This mild flush generally disappears within the day. As HIFU treatment has minimal downtime, you may return to work immediately after application of skincare and sunblock
