HIFU (High Intensity focused ultrasound)

HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) treatment is a non-invasive face and neck skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound technology and the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten the skin without significant downtime.

  • How does it work?

    HIFU works by delivering intense ultrasound waves into the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the skin tissue and surface. Through the thermal effect of this treatment which uses a temperature up to 70 degrees Celsius to trigger neocollagenesis.

    This process involves the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS). Going through blood coagulation and collagen shelving helps to address the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.

  • How long is the treatment?

    The entire treatment will take approximately 15~30 minutes.

  • Is the treatment painful?

    Topical numbing is applied prior to the treatment for maximize comfort. During the procedure, patients may experience slight aching and tingling sensations on the treated areas which is well-tolerated.

    It can be treated on the jawline, nasolabial folds, neck fold, eyes, mouth and areas with loose and saggy skin.

  • What can I expect after my Ultraformer treatment?

    Immediate tightening of skin in treated area, as heat for the micro-focused ultrasound contracts the network of collagen fibers. This will continue to improve over time resulting in rejuvenation of the skin as the support structure is filled out.
