High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive procedure that has gained popularity in the cosmetic industry for its ability to tighten and lift sagging skin.
During a HIFU treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver focused ultrasound energy deep into the skin layers without damaging the surface of the skin. The ultrasound energy is concentrated on specific points, generating heat in the targeted tissues. This thermal energy stimulates collagen production and triggers a natural healing response in the skin.
The production of new collagen helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. Over time, the treated area may show visible improvements, including reduced sagging and a more lifted appearance.
What can High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treat?
HIFU is commonly used to address sagging skin on the face and neck. It can target various areas, such as the forehead, cheeks, jowls, chin and neck. Engineered with endless capabilities offering combinations of treatment regimens, HIFU is suitable for patients with the following concerns:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Saggy mid-face
- Loose & sagging skin
- Signs of ageing
- Decrease in skin elasticity
- V-Line contouring
Advantages of HIFU
High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive procedure and does not require incisions or surgery. It is typically well-tolerated by patients, and there is minimal downtime associated with the procedure. Some people may experience mild discomfort or a sensation of heat during the treatment, but it is generally considered tolerable.
Results of HIFU
The results of HIFU can vary depending on factors such as the individual’s skin condition, the severity of sagging, and the number of treatments received. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. The longevity of the results can also vary, and maintenance treatments may be recommended over time.
If you are considering High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) or any non-surgical skin tightening procedure, it is advisable to schedule a consultation with Dr Donald Ng who can assess your specific needs, discuss the potential benefits and risks, and determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
