What is HIFU Facelift?
Our High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment is able to provide a powerful lifting and tightening effect in the skin that is highly sought after. Such effects include Brow, Face and Neck lifts.
All of these options are NON-SURGICAL and require NO DOWNTIME. Our technology is also able to give the face the desired V-shape, with reported effects that can last up to 1 year! Our Ultrasound Machine specifically targets deep layers of the skin (Dermis) and the Superficial Muscular Aponeurosis System (SMAS). It is one of the latest technologies in aesthetic medicine!
Mechanism of Action
The ultrasound energy can target 2 layers:
– Deep skin layer (Dermis): For collagen stimulation, tightening and firming
– SMAS: For Face-lifting
How is the HIFU Facelift procedure performed?
Your face will be cleansed and ultrasound gel will then be applied in preparation for the treatment. The HIFU device which delivers the ultrasound energy will be held over the treatment area. You may experience slight warmth or prickling sensation on your skin during the procedure.
The HIFU Facelift procedure takes about 60-90 minutes, and NO DOWNTIME is required.
How long can it last?
This varies as each person’s skin condition is different. On average, the results can last for 18 – 24 months.
Is it a safe procedure? What are the side effects?
You may see slight reddening of the skin on the treated area, but it should subside in a few hours. Your skin may also experience mild soreness.
Who is suitable for HIFU Facelift?
HIFU Facelift is suitable for all skin types but is not advisable if you have an active skin infection or inflammation.
