What is HIFU?

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a medical technology that utilises ultrasound at precise depths for non-surgical tightening and lifting of the skin. It can help to reverse ageing and achieve a lifted and youthful look.

How does HIFU works?

HIFU is a FDA approved treatment in Singapore, using the ultrasound technology to reach different layers of the skin, harmlessly passing through skin without damage to skin surface to deliver focused beams of 60 – 70 degrees Celsius.

The focused beams melt excess fats in the face while stimulating collagen to tighten the skin, allowing an lifting and toning effect on skin.

As a result, our face’s loose skin can be tightened and looks younger and more taut, as it is rejuvenated thanks to the increased synthesis of collagen and elastin.

Why HIFU for Face Lifting and Skin Tightening?

As we age naturally, the structural foundation of our skin loses elastin and collagen, which helps to keep your skin firm, supple and youthful looking.

HIFU treatment helps to reduce signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, double chin and sagging skin, neck, jowls or cheeks.

Besides skin lifting, HIFU also helps to reduce the appearance of dark eye circles and eye wrinkles.

Which skin layers can HIFU target?

Hifu target various layers of your skin, it is a medical procedure that allows the deepest penetration of energy for face lifting and skin tightening. HIFU can provide the same lifting and tightening effect as surgical facelift without having to undergo any surgery!


At 1.5mm depth, it reaches superficial dermis to be able to reduce melanin and lighten pigmentation, to brighten skin around eyes and even skin tone.
At 3mm depth, the energy reaches the deep dermis for a skin tightening effect by controlled heating of skin tissue and stimulation of collagen production.
At 4.5mm depth, it reaches Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) for a skin lifting effect. SMAS layer is where surgeon perform on during a surgical facelift.

What can you expect from HIFU Treatment?

When the ultrasound energy reaches the skin layer, it will stimulate collagen production which will progressively improve over 4 to 6 weeks as your skin continue to generate collagen. Results will differ between individuals as collagen production and maintenance is not the same for all. Visible results can already be seen on the first session. However, in order to see the full effect, it is advisable to wait 2 – 3 months.


How is HIFU different from other non surgical skin tightening procedures?

HIFU is the only medical procedure that reaches the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer for face lifting and skin tightening in the current market.

Compare HIFU to radiofrequency skin tightening, RF uses bulk heating, focuses on epidermal layers and does not go beyond the deep dermis.

Compare HIFU to laser skin tightening, laser focuses on superfical skin layer usually at a depth of 1.5mm, which is great for conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, pigmentations and tattoos.

What is the difference between HIFU and Surgical Facelift?

HIFU has minimal downtime and pain, unlike surgical facelift which requires 3-4 weeks recovery time, HIFU is non-invasive and non-surgical, which eliminates surgical or anaesthesia complications. HIFU procedure is comfortable and bearable to most patients.

HIFU is affordable, treatment produce the same lifting effect at a reasonable price point while surgical facelift can easily costs from $10,000 onwards.

Which areas can be treated with HIFU?

HIFU can be performed on the face and neck to reduce any signs of skin ageing. Common fine line and wrinkles such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feets and neck line can be treated by HIFU.
