HIFU FOR SKIN TIGHTENING
HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the
deep foundation below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery
without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually
see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and ensure the
energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to
contract the facial layer as well as stimulate the body’s creation of
new collagen. As a result, the skin will actually begin to lift and tone
over the course of 60-90 days
HIFU is considered to be ONE OF the safest techniques known for
tightening and lifting the face skin. The procedure has been cleared
after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of
treatments have been performed safely worldwide
Being a totally non-invasive procedure, HIFU doesn’t have any
downtime. Soon after the treatment, you can return to your daily life
without worrying about anything.

Patients who are in their 40s and 50s are the most common age group who
can have this treatment. The treatment is also suitable for those aged
60+ provided the degree of laxity is not too much. HIFU can also be done
on people who have already gone through surgery for a facelift and are
not quite happy with the results, HIFU will help in prolonging the
effects of surgical facelifts.
Most people find results last 1-2years, although yearly touch-up
treatments are recommended to stay ahead of the ageing process.
