HIFU Treatment in Singapore

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

What is the HIFU Skin Lifting Treatment?

HIFU Skin Lift is a treatment available in Singapore which uses the latest technology and machine, for lifting the skin and giving it a youthful look. Basically an anti-aging face lift procedure that is non-invasive, 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. Totally painless, this non-surgical treatment 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 Over the Other HIFUs in the Market?

The main differentiator between HIFU SygmaLift machine and other HIFU treatments, is the pain factor. HIFU SygmaLift is literally pain-free because it uses fractionated HIFU. Another popular HIFU brand which is effective is called the Ulthera. This HIFU is equipped with a system that help clinicians to target the areas with precision as they observe the tissue layers being treated. Other conventional HIFU treatments are known to use very focus large beams with penetration taking place very deep in the skin, resulting in unbearable pain to the patient, while undergoing the treatment. However, in the case of HIFU Sygmalift machine, these beams are separated into several different fractions, so that they bypass and penetrate the skin surface, stimulating and remodeling the collagen, which tightens the skin.

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

This completely non-invasive medical technology is perfect for lifting the skin, as it smoothens wrinkles, and tightens 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 cheek, jowl, eye 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 face 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. HIFU machine can stimulates the existing collagen fibres, with heat application, and accelerates collagen production. The heat effect causes thickening of the collagen fibres, leading to  long-term tightening and lifting of the facial skin!

A welcome side-effect of HIFU is that the high levels of energy emitted by the ultrasound lasers, are also useful for melting away facial fats! This not only means that your skin sports a more youthful look, feels tighter, and the size of your face also reduces. This is the first HIFU technology capable of  tightening the skin, as well as melt away fats! Wouldn’t you love  a slimmer jaw line, a much-reduced double chin, and jowls that aren’t so large anymore.

Doctor’s Advice & Recommendation for HIFU Lifting

When it comes to HIFU treatment in Singapore, we have different types of HIFU modalities, with Sygmalift being one of our recommended options.

Why choose Sygmalift?

With an innovative and patented HIFU technology that can deliver ultrasound energy in fractionated mode, this treatment is the perfect solution for people who want to look good but  are afraid of the pain, or if they are unsure about aesthetic procedures. The entire SygmaLift procedure is pleasant and pain-free, without any need of numbing or anaesthetic cream. Moreover, due to combining it with cold laser therapy, results will begin to appear as early as 40 days after the procedure. 

SygmaLift offers a viable alternative to traditional methods used for face lifting, such as dermal fillers, surgical interventions, and neurotoxin injections.

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.
