High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a type of skin treatment that is painless and non-surgical. It makes use of ultrasound energy in producing collagen- an important skin protein that makes the skin tight.

What is HIFU Facelift?

HIFU was initially used in the treatment of tumors up until 2008 when its importance in skin treatment was discovered and approved in 2014. Since then, it has been used to improve lines and wrinkles of the upper chest region and the neckline. It also removes excess skin from the face, tightens the tissues under the skin while repositioning the face and neck skin.

Is HIFU Facelift Safe?

HIFU has been found to be safe and effective as it does not involve any surgical process, and results are seen a few months after the treatment. It is a popular treatment for face lifting and face tightening, especially for people who don't want to go through the risk of surgery and the time involved in recovering from surgery. Sadly, HIFU will not work for people with severe cases of sagging skin.

How HIFU Facelift Works

HIFU facelift devices uses focused ultrasound energy to target a specific region of the tissues under the skin. This energy heats these tissues causing cellular damage and stimulating a high production of collagen. Collagen is a type of protein that gives the skin its shape. This increase in collagen synthesis leads to tighter, firmer skin.

People with photodamaged skin and those with a high degree of skin loss may require several treatments before they begin to see results. It's also not suitable for people with infection and open lesions at the target site.


HIFU Facelift vs Surgical Facelift

A lot of people who want to look better are often torn between these two options. Let's look at the major differences between each procedure:


  Invasive Recovery Risks Efficacy Long-term Effects
HIFU Does not need incision None Redness and swelling of skin Very efficient. Improvement in skin lifting within 3 months Long-lasting but as natural aging continues additional HIFU treatment may be needed.
Surgical Facelift It requires incisions and sutures 2-4 weeks
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Pain or scarring
  • Hair loss at point of incision
It is very efficient with improvement after one year The effect is long lasting as it takes a long time before the natural aging process takes a toll.


HIFU can be used to treat jaws, chin, wrinkles, and saggy skin. It is popular with most people because it is non-invasive and cheaper when compared to traditional facelift procedures.

The Ultrasound wave is first emitted to a depth of 3.0-4.5mm with a fractional shape, which creates heat and damage to specific layers of the skin. This immediately causes skin tightening and lifting effects. Overtime, you can also expect progressive improvements over the next few months.

RF Face LegacyLIFT

The Legacy lift is used for treatment in areas that are difficult to reach, such as the eye and along the jowls. It makes use of (MP)2 technology combined with VariPulse technology to give the neck and face a tighter, more sculpted appearance. 

The RF Legacylift features a 4D technology which combines 4 important technologies to deliver visible result. The four technologies combined include: Multi-Polar Radio Frequency (RF); Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF); VariPulse Technology (VF) and RealTime Thermal Feedback.

When the RF Legacy lift is applied to the skin, it produces a radiofrequency which produces a uniform thermal reaction at a precise depth within the skin tissue, producing natural collagen and hence help to lift, tighten and improve the texture of the skin.

HIFU Facelift Side Effects

The major side effect of the HIFU facelift is the reddening of the skin during the procedure. However, this will disappear within a few hours. Other side effects include slight swelling, slight bruising, and numbness.
