What happens to our face when we age?

As we age, skin loses elasticity and tension.

Soft tissue descends due to a combination of ligament laxity and gravity.

All these contribute to sagginess in our laugh lines, jawlines and eyelids.

What is Korean HIFU vs Ulthera vs Thermage?

HIFU refers to high intensity focused ultrasound. It is a cutting edge KFDA approved device for non surgical facelifting, perfected in the land of Cosmetic Surgery, South Korea.

Ulthera is FDA approved for non surgical facelifting. It is a time test device from the US but can be rather painful and costly.

Thermage is FDA approved for skin tightening. Also from the US, its principle is radiofrequency. This too can be painful and costly.

In my clinical experience, patient satisfaction rate for the Korean HIFU is 85%. The key is patient selection. Patients with fair and realistic expectations tend to find the treatment worth it.

What is the cost of Korean HIFU vs Ulthera vs Thermage in Singapore?

In experienced hands, for face treatment, depending on the number of shots as it is shot count dependent, prices start from

HIFU – $2188

ULTHERAPY, HIFU VS THREADLIFT? | WHICH IS BETTER?

  1. Threadlift works faster but may have temporary downtime. It is suitable for people who are open to injections. And for those who want a non surgical face-lift.
  2. Ultherapy, HIFU and Thermage have zero downtime, are injection-free, but peak results occur in 3 months. |
  3. In some patients, I use an individualised programme combining HIFU with Thermage for enhanced results.
  4. Certain patients lack facial volume. In this case, using a collagen stimulator, for example, Sculptra is essential to augment the collagen boosting results.
  5. In my clinical opinion, in certain faces, it is best to combine all modalities to achieve peak state.

HOW does HIFU WORK?

HIFU – high intensity focused ultrasound delivered onto the SMAS layer to lift, firm and tighten.Collagen stimulation and growth over the next 3 months for increased efficacy.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT INTERVAL?

3 sessions a year for optimum results.

HOW DOES HIFU FEEL?

During treatment, some patients do feel the discomfort, some patients describe a ‘sharp’ sensation, as if little hot toothpicks are pricking them. Your physician will customise a programme to reduce this pain sensation.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF HIFU? 

  1. Softening of the jawline, nasolabial fold, double chin.
  2. Lifting of midface and eyebrow.
  3. Tightening and firming of face.

KEY CONCEPT:

  1. Understand YOUR skin health and COMMIT to a consistent skincare regime in order to enhance and maintain results.
  2. The procedure delivers focused ultrasound energy at precise depths and temperature to initiate neocollagenesis, without disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy jump-starts the new collagen building process. (4.5mm to the SMAS/platysma, 3mm to the deep dermis and 1.5mm to the superficial dermis)
  3. In some cases, we can combine HIFU with Sculptra | Dermal fillers and Threadlift and you get even better results. Results are significantly better when your skin has a lot of healthy collagen and elastin.
