Hifu works for the face and neck lifting, skin tightening, wrinkles, V-face shaping, jowl line lifting, double chin reduction, cheeks, and skin tone improvement.
What is HIFU?
Hifu is a non-surgical treatment that uses HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) technology to tighten and lift facial and body skin. This micro-focused ultrasound treatment can effectively combat signs of aging and troublesome skin laxity to create a youthful appearance on the face and body.
How does the HIFU work?
HIFU effectively treats the superficial and deeper skin layers, as well as the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) with a triple layer lifting effect. The treatment heats up and stimulates existing collagen fibres, causing them to thicken and shorting giving you a long-term tightening and lifting effect.
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is currently the only non-invasive medical device that allows the deepest penetration of energy, targeting depths of 1.5mm, 3mm and 4.5mm, for skin lifting and tightening.
At this depth, the High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound is able to lighten pigmentation and brighten the skin. The amount of melanin in the skin will reduce by a fair amount.
At 3mm, the heating of skin tissue is targeted mainly at skin tightening. Radiofrequency procedures, like Thermage and the Venus Viva Nanofractional RF, are often used for skin tightening via heating the skin. The HIFU is also able target this depth, where structural collagen is situated, and deliver precise energy to stimulate collagen production.
4.5mm is where the lifting effect takes place. The Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) is usually situated at this depth. This is the layer surgeons tighten when performing a surgical face lift. This means stimulation and tightening of the SMAS layer with the HIFU will provide excellent lifting results.
What is the procedure like?
The Hifu is a comfortable procedure. Patients might feel a mild ache along bony areas, like the jawline. This is due to the ultrasound energy reflecting off the facial contours.
Hifu takes approximately 60 minutes and has minimal downtime. Your skin may appear slightly flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness will subside within a few hours.
Where can HIFU be applied on?
Why do HIFU with us?
At most clinics, skin tightening and facial lifts are standardised procedures. We believe that facial rejuvenation needs to be individualised, from laser procedures to HIFU face lifts. What would be an ideal approach for one patient is not necessarily the same for someone else. During consultation, our Dermal clinician will perform a close examination of your face, to help you better understand which areas of the face can benefit most from HIFU.
Choose the right HIFU
There are only a handful of HSA (Health Science Authority)-approved HIFU procedures that are certified to be operated by trained clinicians. Although many beauty salons also offer ‘HIFU’ procedures, these procedures or machines are not medical grade or HSA-approved for medical use by a trained professional. A HIFU procedure performed at beauty salons might not only yield unsatisfactory results, but could also cause more damage than benefits if performed incorrectly.
The HIFU procedure in our clinic is done with a Second Generation U-One Device and Vmax . Pure skin + Clinic preference for using this HIFU stems down to its effectiveness, safety and it being the most popular HIFU procedure in the world.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS - HIFU
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF HIFU?
Hifu is completely non-invasive treatment to actually lift skin. It is much less painful compared to other lifting machines it is also much more affordable.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
The jawline, nasolabial folds, neck fold and general fine lines and wrinkles on the face are the most popular treatment areas. The Hifu machine can also be used on the body. The area above the knee, arm skin, thighs and abdominal skin laxity are also treatable.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT?
This non-invasive procedure is associated with no downtime, allowing patients to return to daily activities immediately after treatment. Some patients experience some tenderness and tingling in the treated areas but these side effects resolve quickly.
IS HIFU TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Discomfort levels vary from person to person. Most of patients tolerate the procedure well without anesthesia or sedation while the energy is being delivered. Pain and discomfort associated with procedure are temporary that lasts usually only during the procedure. We recommend patients take paracetamol 30 minutes prior to treatment.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
Patients may see some effect almost immediately. True results develop over time as old collagen is regenerated with new collagen. As this collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after the initial treatment patients see continuing improvement over time. We recommend 2 treatments 3-6 months apart.
HOW DOES HIFU WORK?
Hifu delivers (High intensity focused ultrasound) energy below the skin. HIFU effects three layers of the superficial and dermis along with SMAS, which is the same layer of tissue that surgeons pull tight in a face lift. As a thermal energy safely heats this tissue, it contracts resulting in tightening of the skin and formation of new collagen, which provides a longer-term tightening effect.
WHAT IS SMAS LAYER AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT ?
SMAS is Superficial Musculo-aponeurotic System which is the same layer of tissue that surgeons pull tight in a face lift. As Hifu treatment thermal energy safely heats this tissue, it contract resulting in immediately tighten of that skin. Over time this becomes in a noticeable lift. That’s because Hifu treatment continue to stimulate the grow the new collagen protein then build up the skin structure.
ARE MEN GOOD CANDIDATES FOR A HIFU TREATMENT?
Men are very good candidates for our Hifu treatment since it doesn’t need any significant recovery time. Over time men loose laxity in their skin just as women do, however fillers and other treatments can often result in a less masculine looking result. Hifu simply tightens what is already their rather than altering the shape of volume of the face of any of its structures.
HOW LONG DOES AN HIFU TREATMENT TAKE?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure usually takes 45~60 minutes.
IS HIFU TREATMENT SAFE?
Hifu has been used safely in over 200,000 treatments worldwide.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
You might see redness and/or swelling at first, might feel some tingling or loss of sensation. These will disappear within hours. It signals that beneficial process of collagen regeneration has begun. HIFU skin tightening is clinically proven to be safe, with natural and gradual rejuvenation effects. Some patients may experience bruising or tingling for a longer period of time, this is normal and will self resolve.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The majority of patients only need one to two treatments. At Pure skin + clinic we recommend 2 treatment to make a significant impact. Experts agree that dramatic clinical outcomes can be achieved with Hifu, and improvements will be visible up to 6 months after the initial procedure. Touch-up treatments could be performed in 1 year intervals, depending in the degree of lifting and tightening that needs to be addressed.
