How does it work?
HIFU is a treatment that applies heat to specific depths of the skin using high intensity focused ultrasound energy without damaging the skin surface and its surrounding tissues. It induces selective thermal coagulative zones on skin layers like dermis, subcutaneous fat, or SMAS layer to burn fat, stimulate collagen & elastin production, and muscle contraction. These are also the same area tightened during a surgical facelift. As the collagen and elastin gradually restored over time, the skin starts reconditioning from within. This natural and gradual skin lifting & tightening improvement will promise an overall noticeable younger-looking contour that is firmer, tighter, and chiseled than before. As an all-rounder collagen stimulant treatment, HIFU also associated with a variety of positive skin changes that help freshen the tired face and reduce the signs of aging. A gradual improvement in the skin tone and texture will make your skin naturally plump, glowing, and more supple. The folds get shallower along with the reduction of fine lines & deep-set wrinkles continue to improve day by day over the next several months. HIFU is also an effective treatment for subcutaneous fat reduction. It helps to improve the face contour by burning excessive subcutaneous fat and maintain the skin tighten for a visible and contouring effect.
Why HIFU for Face & Neck?
As the years go by, our skin gradually loses its plump and firmness over time due to aging, sun damage, or significant weight loss. Collagen and elastin are essential for keeping our skin looking both young, firmed and toned. When our skin elasticity slacken, and collagen begins to deplete, our skin loses its suppleness. Consequently, the visible signs of aging like loss of facial volume, wrinkled skin, skin texture changed, or sagging skin at the cheeks, jawline, and neck can start to appear. HIFU is also an effective treatment for subcutaneous fat reduction. It helps in face slimming and double chin reduction to give you a more chiseled look.

HIFU vs. Others Skin Lifting Treatment
HIFU able to penetrates at deeper depths and higher temperatures than other skin tightening modalities such as Radio Frequency (RF), IPL, or Laser.

Laser and HIFU treatment may share some similar benefits, but in nature, they are considered a different type of treatment. They complement one another in achieving optimal results.
Laser generally address the superficial layers of skin problems such as counteract fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation.
