High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound treatment (HIFU) is a non-invasive and mostly painless treatment that is considered by many to be a replacement for facelifts. HIFU helps to firm and tighten the skin, but it also helps with contouring. It uses a high energy ultrasound focusing treatment position to create heat at a deep level in the skin and lift the skin via high-speed friction cells to stimulate collagen remodelling and elastin fibre contraction, overall resulting in firmer and more youthful skin.

 Such heat will not harm the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) because the treatment is quick and has direct access to the treatment site within 0-0.5 seconds, without touching the surrounding tissue and can be passed directly to the superficial tendon membrane system (SMAS), so it can be done to firm the skin while pulling the muscle layer.




SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) is a layer of connective tissue membrane that is widely covered under the dermis which connects fat and facial superficial muscle, extends and consolidates the bone of the face, closely connects epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue together, and these layers structures form the facial contour supports the integrity of skin, muscles and bone.

There are no incisions, no scarring, and only a 1 week required rest or recovery time. It is also far less expensive than a facelift.

This treatment is mainly used for overall skin sagging, wrinkles, too much skin ageing, reshaping the facial curve, effectively improving the eye region and neck tissue relaxation, and ptosis.

Skin rejuvenation: deep wrinkles folds, forehead lines, nasolabial lift, lip wrinkles, forehead wrinkles, double chin, face lifting & tightening, to eliminate double chin, narrow face.

The HIFU procedure has a temporary slight swelling phenomenon that is completely normal.

Important note: one week after the procedure, avoid high-temperature saunas, yoga or other high-temperature environments. Do not use very hot water to cleanse the skin and recommended to use a face mask 3 times per week. (avoid spicy food, alcohol, soy sauce.)

Unsuitable for people who:

  • Have implanted cardiac pacemakers or other similar electronic devices
  • Pregnant women
  • Over the past nine months of taking oral isotretinoin treatment, Accutane, Roaccutane 1 Oratane
  • Patients with advanced cancer
  • People with unrealistic fantasies

Instant result will be visible from the second to the ninth month, good result will last 2-3 years.

If you’re looking for a treatment that is quick, painless, and noninvasive, HIFU is an excellent option compared to a surgical facelift. The procedure is best suited for patients with mild-to-moderate skin ageing.

As with any treatment, it is important to have healthy expectations.

No procedure will instantly make you look 10 years younger. They are intended to treat various issues, not make them go away entirely. It is important to pick the treatment that is right for you, every treatment has different purposes and is intended to aid with those goals. Consult with a professional on what would be the right treatment for you.
