HIFU is short for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (超声刀). It is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that emits ultrasound energy into superficial, deep dermis and SMAS layer of the skin for an effective triple layer lifting effect on the targeted areas.
HIFU is commonly performed for Non Surgical Face Lifting for ageing sagging face, for Fat Cheeks Removal or Double Chin Removal to achieve a V Shape Face.
✅ Tightening Sagging Skin

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.
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. Double chin, saggy jowls and chubby cheeks can be reduced to enhance jawline and facial contour to achieve a V Shaped Face.
HIFU is a good option for tackling wrinkles and fine lines. This non-invasive treatment stimulates collagen production, reducing wrinkles and providing natural-looking results. Its precision targeting ensures safety and long-lasting effects without downtime. Say
For those dealing with a double chin concern, HIFU offers an ideal solution. HIFU can help melt double chin fats by targeting the underlying fat cells and tightens the skin, effectively reducing the appearance of a double chin.
HIFU precisely targets the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and providing a natural lift to the cheeks. As collagen levels increase, the skin becomes firmer and tighter.
HIFU’s targeted energy reaches the deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin tightening. The increased collagen leads to a lifted and rejuvenated appearance for sagging jowls, brows, and eyelids.
As we age, the production of collagen naturally decreases, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles- forehead wrinkles, frown lines, smile lines, crow’s feets and neck lines.
HIFU can stimulate collagen production, so the skin gradually regains its firmness and elasticity, resulting in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. The renewed collagen also helps to lift and tighten the underlying tissues, which contributes to an overall more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Over time, when collagen production declines, it leads to visible signs of aging like sagging skin.
HIFU provides a non-invasive lifting solution by stimulating collagen production. The rejuvenated collagen actively lifts and tightens the underlying tissues, resulting in a more youthful and revitalized look for saggy jowls, brows, and eyelids.
HIFU’s precise energy penetrates deep into the skin, effectively melting away excess fat cells in the double chin area and cheeks. Simultaneously, HIFU stimulates collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and firmness.
As a result, the skin tightens, giving the face a lifted and contoured look, while the reduction in double chin and cheek fats creates a more sculpted and youthful appearance.
HIFU face lifting and skin tightening treatment can offer a number of benefits, including enhancing the jawline. This non-invasive procedure uses ultrasound energy to target specific areas of the face, resulting in a more youthful appearance. This can give the face a more youthful appearance by helping to define the contours of the face.
If you are looking for a treatment to help tighten sagging skin, HIFU Face Lifting and Skin Tightening Treatment may be the right option for you. This treatment can help to improve the appearance of sagging skin by stimulating collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin.
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.
HIFU precisely targets three key layers in the skin: the Epidermis, Deep Dermis, and the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), akin to the facial muscles addressed during a traditional facelift.
At a depth of 1.5mm, HIFU reaches the superficial dermis, effectively reducing melanin to lighten pigmentation and promote skin brightening.
Delving to a depth of 3mm, the energy targets the deep dermis, resulting in stimulation of collagen production, leading to a skin tightening effect.
Finally, at a depth of 4.5mm, HIFU reaches the SMAS, producing a skin lifting effect, providing visible and rejuvenating results.
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.
In general, it is normal to experience minimal side effects after a HIFU facial, which usually subside within a few hours. Although some individuals might report temporary sensations such as mild swelling, numbness, redness, bruising, or a purple rash, these effects are considered part of the normal process and typically resolve on their own. A South Korean study (1) also confirmed that there were no serious side effects associated with the treatment.
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.
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.
HIFU has minimal downtime and pain, unlike surgical facelift which requires 3-4 weeks recovery time. You can return to your normal activities immediately after HIFU.
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.
There is little evidence to show which HIFU treatment is better or more superior than another, the differences lies in the Practitioner and technical detail which aims to treat the same concerns. When it comes to choosing the right HIFU treatment in Singapore, you need to take into account a few things that makes you comfortable to proceed with the treatment.
Trust in the doctor’s expertise, proper and holistic care of the diagnosed condition is the most important thing to look out for.
Results from HIFU treatments are usually visible after a few sessions. However, individual results may vary depending on skin type, concerns, and the body’s natural healing process.
Improvement in pigmentation, texture, and overall skin appearance can often be seen within a few weeks of treatment.
