HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) uses focused ultrasound energy to target skin layers just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up quickly. It then applies the focused Ultrasound energy to a depth of 2~5 mm locally targeting deeper tissues in the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), dermis and subcutaneous tissue layers reinforcing tissues to renewal through thermal tissue ablation. The new tissue synthesis may occur within a few months to strengthening the skin’s elasticity and structure naturally from within.
HIFU is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses Focused Ultrasound Technology to create a micro-injury in the deep dermal and Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer. HIFU stimulates the cells, encouraging tissue rejuvenation in the SMAS layer and collagen production – resulting in lifting and tightening of skin naturally.
HIFU works best on people aged 30 and above with mild-to-moderate skin looseness. Skin that is photodamaged or has a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.
Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin looseness, or very saggy skin on the neck are not well recommended and may need surgery.
HIFU is not recommended for people with infections and open skin injury/wounds at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.
A 2017 study involving 32 Korean people showed that HIFU significantly improved skin elasticity of the cheeks, lower abdomen, and thighs after 12 weeks. People treated with HIFU has seen an improvement in the appearance of their face and neck after 90 days.
HIFU benefits include:
– Elimination of wrinkles and fine lines.
– Better and more prominent jawline.
– Smoother skin.
– Lifted eyelids, cheeks, and eyebrows.
– Tightened skin (especially at saggy areas like the neck)
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel the little amount of energy being transported to specific depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is delivered.
You may experience slight discomfort during a HIFU treatment. Some people describe it as tiny electric pulses or a slight prickly sensation.
If you are worried about pain, you may ask the therapist to apply numbing cream before treatment.

People with photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin looseness, or very saggy skin on the neck are not recommended and may need plasma treatment of surgery procedure.
HIFU is not recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.
If active acne is present, it is recommended to perform the treatment only after the acne is treated with no signs of infection or inflammation.
Most sensitive skin types are suitable. However, those with active inflammatory eczema or allergies will require proper treatments first before doing the HIFU Treatment.
After the first HIFU treatment, you may see some initial effects. A course of 3 sessions once a month is highly recommended to achieve the maximum results that can last 1 year to 1.5 years. The ultimate results will usually take place over 2-3 months as new collagen is regenerated. This collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after the initial treatment.
Since the procedure stimulates collagen production, how long the results last depend on your lifestyle. HIFU treatment results typically last for 12 months.
HIFU is a non-invasive treatment creating a facelift and v-shape without the need for surgery or needles.
