HIFU Treatment in Singapore


HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a technology that uses controlled ultrasound energy to penetrate into different layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. This results in skin lifting and tightening without affecting the surface of the skin.

Ultraformer MPT is a HIFU device in Singapore. Other examples HIFU are Liftera, Ultracel Q+ and Doublo Gold. 

Another example of ultrasound lifting device is Ultherapy which uses microfocused ultrasound with visualisation technology.

How Does HIFU Work?

HIFU such as Ultraformer MPT in Singapore produces ultrasound waves energy that bypasses the surface of the skin to target deeper layers of the skin. 

It delivers precise and controlled energy to the dermis and SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer of the skin. This triggers a cascade of collagen regeneration in the skin resulting in skin lifting and tightening in the treated areas.

Depending on the pre-existing skin condition and the treatment area, HIFU is commonly performed every 4-6 months.
