HIFU Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening HIFU treatment is a non-invasive treatment that tightens and lifts the skin with ultrasound waves. It rejuvenates the skin from within!

Why should you try the HIFU treatment?


HIFU has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of sagging skin around the face, jowl and neck.


    HIFU’s ultrasound technology penetrates into the deeper skin layers without damaging the skin surface. No irritation or downtime!


      The 3rd generation HIFU device Ultraformer III offers durable results at an affordable price.

        HIFU vs other Rejuvenation treatments

        Laser, Stellar M22 OPT (Optima IPL), RF and HIFU are different technologies to rejuvenate the skin. Laser, Stellar M22 OPT (Optima IPL) and RF address the more superficial layers of the skin whereas HIFU reaches the deeper skin layer that lifts and supports the skin. The main difference is the depth of reach.

        Proven Results

        Ultraformer III is the 3rd generation skin lifting ultrasound device that is currently very popular in Korea. It uses HIFU technology and here’s how it works:

        • The safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound (HIFU) is micro-focused to create powerful energy.
        • Energy targets the deep structural support layers of the skin at depths of 2 mm, 3mm and 4.5mm, for skin lifting.
        • It stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift (SMAS), without disturbing the surface of the skin.
        • Collagen production improves to strengthen, tone and tighten the skin from within.

        Frequently Asked Questions about HIFU Skin Tightening

        What happens during the procedure?

        The treatment takes about an hour to an hour and a half. Your face will be cleansed before the ultrasound gel is applied. Dr Wong then adjusts the Ultraformer HIFU settings and begins treatment.

        Is it Painful?

        During the treatment, you will feel warm to hot pulses of ultrasound energy deep in your skin. This causes skin layers to contract. Patients describe this as slightly uncomfortable, mildly stinging or even moderately painful. While the new HIFU machine is generally more comfortable, the level of discomfort depends on your personal pain tolerance and the area being treated. Dr Wong will try to make every treatment as comfortable as possible and will administer local anaesthesia on the treated area if needed.

        When will you see the results?

        Immediately after the treatment, your face will look slightly puffier which will resolve in 2 to 4 days. However ideal results come 60 to 100 days after treatment when the collagen regeneration becomes noticeable, whereby the skin will look fresher & rejuvenated.

        How many sessions will you need?

        One to two treatments per year, depending on your age and the severity of skin sagging. The second treatment is usually scheduled 5 to 7 months later. Results usually last about a year or two and you may decide to have further treatment when the results start to wear off.
