A Firmer, Youthful Face With HIFU

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary treatment, allowing patients to acquire a face lift without surgery. HIFU uses precise beams of ultrasound energy to tighten the skin’s connective tissues, thus lifting the skin. By heating up and stimulating existing collagen fibers, the fibres thicken, resulting in a long-term tightening and lifting effect. HIFU is also effective for age prevention and reversing sagging skin. Our collagen production begins to slow as we age, and the skin’s elastic fibers become less dense. HIFU treatment can help to push up your collagen production by stimulating dermal collagen production, you gain a more youthful appearance.

The earlier generation machines gave an extremely painful experience. Now, with the aid of advanced technology, we have different types of new HIFU machines, the Ensoul Q+ and Sygmalift. The Symalift solves the problem by using gold ceramic oscillator at 1,000 Hz, to deliver its Ultrasound energy via fractionated technology without causing pain. We can now be able to carry out a non-surgical facelift in a painless, injection-free way, resulting in a comfortable experience. Ensoul Q+ is the next generation HIFU with linear shot technology, it works greatly for patients with mature and sagging skin. This technology has been clinically tested and proven to aid patients in effectively tightening and lifting sagging jowls, eye brow areas and reduce double chin. This procedure may cause slight redness after the treatment, but will subside after a couple of hours. Different strength levels can be adjusted to cater to patient's tolerance for discomfort. 

The new HIFU technology not only tightens the skin, but also melts fat. Hence, it is perfect modality for reducing sagging cheeks, droopy jowls, laugh lines, crow’s feet, eye bags and forehead lines. Both the new HIFU modalities can give a tighter, smaller, sharper and well defined facial shape, as well as a slimmer jaw line and a reduced double chin. It is a suitable procedure for patients of any age and is safe for all skin types. For a more severe sagging skin, we recommend Ensoul Q+ for best results.

Some patients can see results immediately after the first treatment. While other patients began to notice the results after 2 months when the body starts to produce collagen and elastin. Optimal results can be seen after 6 months.

Due to the omittance of pain and downtime, the new HIFU therapy has surpassed the traditional HIFU technology. The new HIFU technology is ideal for facial remodeling, wrinkle reduction, skin rejuvenation and neck lifting. An extremely satisfactory procedure that produce long-term results without surgery.
