HIFU Treatment in Singapore

A Painless & Effective Non-Invasive Treatment for Skin Lifting and Face Tightening.

What is the HIFU Skin Lifting Treatment?

The HIFU Skin Lift is one of the most effective treatments available in Singapore. A non-invasive anti-aging face lift procedure designed to lift the skin and give it a youthful appearance by using the latest technology and methods. This treatment uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound technology (HIFU) to give discerning people an attractive, desirable V-shaped face. Apart from helping to add more definition to the neck and jawline, this treatment is used in skin tightening and rejuvenation regimens. This non-surgical treatment is comfortable and can also minimise the fine lines and wrinkles that form around the eyes, forehead and mouth.

How Does the HIFU Skin-Lifting Procedure Work?

The SygmaLift treatment is spread over 3 parts, with the HIFU machine and technology deployed in the first two parts. Compared to other ultrasound-based treatments, the HIFU procedure is pain free because it specifically uses ultrasound lines in the fractionated mode, which simply means  that the high-intensity focal ultrasound operates in a non-invasive manner, from the inside-out. Without affecting the skin and its surrounding tissues, the HIFU procedure selectively creates thermal coagulative zones over the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer to reduce skin laxity, and fat cells. The skin surface remains undamaged as the typical temperatures reached during the treatment range between 60 and 70 degrees Celsius.

PART I:  Facial Remodeling and Lifting achieved with exclusive ultrasound focal lines

SygmaLift is capable of focusing at depths of 2mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, and  5mm. Its ability to operate at 5mm depths, equips the technology to perform facial remodeling processes, in addition to being a facial lifting system. Each focused beam of ultrasound traversing through the tissue, transmits a progressive thermal effect to the adipose tissue, which in turn, stimulates fat breakdown in the chin and cheek areas

PART II:  Skin Rejuvenation and Collagen Stimulation with Tri-Micro focal ultrasound

Tri-Micro Focal Ultrasound primarily targets areas on the face, such as the eyes, forehead and mouth, where the skin is more delicate, and thinner. The ultrasound can stimulate bioactivity at depths of 1mm, 1.5mm, and 2mm, essential for remodeling of collagen fibres, oxygenation of the tissues, and tissue regeneration from the inside-out.

PART III:  Skin tone improvement and glowing skin

HIFU Skin Lift treatment also contributes to enhanced skin glow, because it boosts collagen synthesis rates, apart from growth factor production by way of vasodilation, transporting essential nutrients, directly to the skin tissue. It also helps in reducing redness,  and soothing inflammation, while speeding up skin repair, give an even tone and texture to skin, and boosting circulation and the lymphatic system.

What are the Benefits of HIFU Sygmalift versus the other HIFUs in the Market?

The main difference between the HIFU SygmaLift machine and other HIFU treatments is the amount of pain involved. By using fractionated HIFU, SygmaLift is painless because the beams are broken up in fractions, bypassing the skin's surface and penetrating precisely where they're needed.

Another popular HIFU brand that is effective is called Ulthera. Unlike Sgymalift, this HIFU modality uses focused large beams to penetrate the depths of the skin. As it extends slightly deeper onto the muscle, patient might feel a slight discomfort while undergoing the treatment. 

Both of these treatments are suitable for all skin types especially for patient who is looking to reverse their maturing skin. As both of these treatments helps to stimulate collagen production, resulting in a tighter and lifted skin. Results are usually visible after the first or second treatment with Ultherapy. To maximize the results, the doctor will usually advise the patient to have follow-up visits. Whereas, HIFU Sygmalift is ideally used as a monthly maintenance treatment to promote a healthy skin regeneration. 

Our Skin Tightening and Lifting program is a three-dimensional skin treatment that relies upon Sygmalift technology, to stimulate collagen production through deep dermal heating, leaving you with smoother skin.

This completely non-invasive medical technology is suitable for lifting the skin, as well as smoothing wrinkles, and tightening the skin.

The following specific procedures have been clinically proven safe and effective for treating the symptoms of photo damage and skin ageing:

  1. Skin Tightening & Lifting works on lax, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles forming in visible areas such as the cheeks, jowls, eyes, and neck.
  2. Skin Resurfacing & Tightening revives skin from the outside in, significantly enhancing skin tone and texture, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  3. Achieve a slimmer or 'V' shape face.
  4. SygmaLift Eyes, is a non-surgical eye-lift procedure that reduces fine wrinkles and tightens the lax skin in areas around the eye.

Who can opt for the HIFU Treatment?

While it is safe for all ages and skin types, HIFU SygmaLift is ideal for people who wish to correct their saggy skin. From people in their 40s and 50s, and considering a face lift, to people in their late 20s and beyond,  desirous of a sharper V-line, HIFU is the answer. 

The ultrasound energy beams are used with precision, to target connective tissues, thus heating the dermis to boost collagen production. HIFU technology machine is perfect for reducing:

  • Sagging Cheeks
  • Crow’s feet
  • Heavy and sagging jowls 
  • Laugh lines
  • Facial wear and tear
  • Wrinkles
  • Facial inconsistencies and anomalies

HIFU for Slowing Down Aging Effects

As our body’s collagen production begins to slacken with the onset of age, the elastic fibres across the skin begin to lose their density. As a result of the heat application of the HIFU machine, the existing collagen fibres are stimulated, which accelerates the production of new collagen. The heat effect causes thickening of the collagen fibres, leading to long-term tightening and lifting of the facial skin.

Another positive effect of HIFU is that the high levels of energy emitted by the ultrasound lasers are also useful for melting away facial fats in the submental zone. Consequently, your skin looks younger, feels tighter, and your face appears smaller, resulting in a slimmer jaw line, reduced double chin, and smaller jowls.

Doctor’s Advice & Recommendation for HIFU Lifting

HIFU treatment in Singapore has different types of modalities available for your needs and Sygmalift is one of our recommended options.

1. Why choose Sygmalift?

With its innovative and patented technology, HIFU can deliver ultrasound energy fractionatedly, making it the perfect option for people who want to look good, but are afraid of pain or unsure about aesthetic procedures. This HIFU face lifting treatment is comfortable and painless and does not require numbing or anaesthetic creams.

The treatment can either be used alone or combined with lasers to achieve maximum results. SygmaLift offers a viable alternative to traditional methods used for face lifting, such as dermal fillers, surgical interventions, and neurotoxin injections.

2. Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime involved in SygmaLift procedures. As it is an in-office procedure, you can resume your normal routine, almost immediately after undergoing the treatment. You also don’t require any kind of special aftercare.
