What is HIFU?
HIFU, or high-intensity focused ultrasound uses ultrasound energy to help stimulate collagen production, leading to tighter, firmer skin. HIFU treatment in Singapore is often used for face lifting without the need for surgical procedures.
How does HIFU work?
With the use of focused ultrasound energy, HIFU treatment reaches different layers of the skin without harming the upper surface. As the energy heats the tissue down below, it causes cell damage prompting the body to repair them by releasing collagen. An improved amount of collagen – a substance that forms the skin’s structure and elasticity.
At our aesthetic clinic
