Ultrasound skin tightening is here to help you get that young and fresh skin! Improve your skin laxity through Ultherapy, our very own HIFU skin tightening treatment!


Fresh New Look with HIFU Skin Tightening!

As time goes by and every time you look into the mirror, you see more and more lines and wrinkles added onto your facial areas, decreasing that youthful appearance that you wish to keep forever. Your facial skin starts to sag, giving a mental note that these are the early signs of a natural aging process.

Sagging skin is certainly not listed in our bucket list of growing up. Undeniably, we wish to stay young forever, not worrying about any saggy skin or our skin condition generally. But as we add our age day by day, our body grows too and may temper with our skin laxity, resulting in loose skin as natural aging process takes place. Our superficial skin has faced a lot of factors that contributed to some skin issues that are common to dermal therapists, such as skin toning, treatment plan for facial muscles and even to check the skin on the neck.

This natural process does raise some eyebrows when we check ourselves in the mirror. Why do we have loose skin? Do I really need to book additional treatments for skin lifting? Is facial rejuvenation necessary for my own skin laxity? There are so many questions in mind regarding this topic, hence, let's take a look into how sagging skin happens.

Sagging Skin

Most patients do experience sagging skin as they grow of age, but young people with different skin types are still possible to be a victim of this phenomenon. A lot of skin care treatments and routines have been embedded into our daily life, but the chances of obtaining lines and wrinkles are still at all-time high, making us all perplexed and at a dead end. How does this happen to us?


As age progresses, our skin layers, or scientifically known as our dermis layers, lose two types of proteins that are originally manufactured in our skin itself - elastin and collagen.

Elastin, as it goes by its name, gives elasticity to our skin. It provides a firm and bounce to our skin, and as time goes by, resulting in moderate skin laxity and losing the magic of the bouncy and healthy skin.

In our skin, collagen production is there to keep our skin firm and to maintain its structure. Collagen production is also important as it is important to keep our skin strong as it helps fibroblasts to form in the dermis, replacing dead skin cells and even help in blood clotting for cuts.

Other than aging, these two proteins may also be degenerate due to other factors such as harmful UV exposure, pollutants from surroundings such as cigarette smoke, and lifestyle choices (poor health and bad drinking habits).


As mothers take care of their growing babies in the womb, the skin on the belly stretches to give way for the body to adapt with the pregnancy period for 9 months.

Mothers carry extra weight on their body, and it may give a damaging effect towards elastin and collagen production. Maternal age may also be a contributing factor for skin sags.

Weight Loss

When losing weight, the original elastin and collagen factory might be damaged due to excessive weight carried before losing weight. Saggy skin is more likely to happen when there is rapid weight loss such as undergoing any cosmetic procedure such as bariatric surgery. These cosmetic surgery procedures may cause the skin to hang and sag from the body.


In a few rare cases, illness gives contributing factors towards sagging skin such as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, also referred to as granulomatous slack skin. People who have this ailment will notice a very gradual loosening of the skin of their elbows and knees over time. Granulomatous slack skin, the underlying cause of sagging skin, often does not react positively to treatment.

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), a rare connective tissue ailment that is hereditary, is another condition that can cause sagging skin. EDS is a genetic condition. People who have EDS have a deficiency in the creation of collagen, which causes their skin to become loose and doughy, most noticeably on the face.

It is important for one to know the reason behind sagging skin to save some time from wondering if a certain skin care product will totally eliminate the skin wrinkles and start considering other alternatives to stimulate collagen for our own skin. It is understandable that surgical facelift or any aesthetic plastic surgery may be a bit intimidating for one to consider to undergo skin tightening, hence, seeking non invasive procedures to have a firm and healthy skin with little to no recovery time. Let's take a look at what dermatology technology has to offer for us.



Skin Tightening Treatments

What is HIFU Skin Treatment?

HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, or commonly known as HIFU treatments is one of the safe and noninvasive skin tightening treatment plans for skin lifting and as a substitute for cosmetic surgery.

HIFU for skin tightening treatment uses ultrasound skin tightening method on specific treatment areas by using ultrasound waves to promote the production of new collagen for a firmer skin. HIFU treatments use focused ultrasound energy to target the dermis layers and result in the rapid heating of the tissues in the layer. The treated area will then reach a certain temperature, causing a brief cellular damage that will then give out a signal for the skin layers to produce new collagen for giving a tighter and structured skin.

This skin tightening HIFU procedure will not cause any damage to the upper layers of the skin as the high-frequency ultrasound energy only penetrates and focuses on a specific tissue underneath the surface of the skin. Generally, this technique is suitable for those who are 30 and older, and having mild to moderate skin laxity.

HIFU treatment offers a wide variety of beneficial aesthetic effects such as reduction of wrinkles, tightening of the sags on the skin on the neck, as a surgical face lift substitute, and smoothing the skin. Without the use of any anti wrinkle injections, HIFU treatments is a non-invasive treatment that offers no recovery time, without any repeated procedures and may continue doing normal activities immediately. Nonetheless, some HIFU patients have reported experiencing mild redness or tiny electric pulses during the treatment, but nothing too serious so worries assured!

RF Skin Tightening

Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, also known as radiofrequency skin tightening, is a form of skin tightening that does not include surgery.

The dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, will be heated as part of the treatment, which will involve the use of energy waves. Because of the heat, the creation of collagen is increased. As was discussed earlier in this article, collagen is the most prevalent type of protein found in the human body. It helps form the framework of your skin and is responsible for the hardness of your skin. Your cells create less collagen as you get older, which is a contributing factor in the development of wrinkles and drooping skin. When the quantity and quality of your collagen starts to decline around the age of 35 to 40, you will begin to experience skin laxity.

RF treatment uses radiofrequency waves which is also a type of safe radiation as it releases about 1 billion times lesser energy compared to X-rays. It helps in combating sun damage on the skin caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays, face and body contouring, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles as well as face slimming.

However, receiving such treatment may also provide small side effects such as numbness, redness and slight swelling. A correct technique with a good use of the equipment is needed to avoid any burning or other consequences.

Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift

Tired of having saggy and not attractive skin? Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face Lift is here to save the day! Similar to HIFU treatments, Ultherapy uses a micro-focused ultrasound (MFU) to penetrate deep into the SMAS layer of the skin to promote the production of collagen in the skin.

Worrying about the time consumption? Afraid not! This type of treatment lasts for 12 months after a single 2 hour session and provides no recovery time at all! Without using any dermal fillers and using new ultrasound techniques, MFU technology sends ultrasound energy pulses to seven different facial areas of the skin to help stimulate collagen production for a natural looking facelift.

Before starting, patients will undergo a skin analysis performed by our experienced therapist in order to obtain a deeper comprehension of the skin's hydration level, pore size, degree of sagging and more, in order to pinpoint the exact areas that need to be addressed. Then, the aesthetician will cleanse the client's face in order to do a patch test. In the meantime, our therapist will pay great attention to the skin of the customer and how they react to the treatment in order to strike a balance between the customer's comfort and the treatment's effectiveness.

Using a HIFU device and by utilising ultrasound imaging, our therapist is able to instantly modify the wavelengths of the ultrasound to correspond with the conditions and temperature of the patient's skin. After the therapy is complete, we will make sure that all of your requirements have been met by following up on the results.



What To Expect After a HIFU Treatment?

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) will give you instant face lift as many people try facial massages in the hope of achieving a momentary face lift rather than focusing on the skin deep effects of anti-aging treatments. In contrast to massages, Ultherapy can successfully lift and tighten the face by employing MFU technology to reach 4.5 mm into the skin and stimulate the SMAS layer. This helps you obtain a lift that appears more natural and gives your face a more youthful appearance. Plus, lifting the face can redefine your jawline, so say hello to sharp jawlines!

Some areas of the skin will sag owing to a lack of collagen, which will cause the skin to appear uneven in addition to the wrinkles that are created by the natural ageing process. In addition to being able to lift the face, Ultherapy also has the ability to replump the face by promoting the synthesis of collagen, which can make you look ten years younger. In addition, Ultherapy is a facelift that does not require any incisions or stitches. The treatment involves heating the surface of the skin in a way that is meant to be painless in order to encourage collagen formation in the SMAS layer. However, the degree of comfort experienced by each person may differ.

What is the difference between Ultherapy and other cosmetic surgery?

Hyaluronic acid injections, Botox, and PLLA are just a few examples of the injectables and fillers that are currently available on the market for use in face lifting procedures. Because of the intrusive nature of these procedures, even though the outcomes could be extremely obvious, there are also hazards associated with them. Ultherapy is a non-invasive alternative to injectable treatments that uses MFU to stimulate collagen creation beneath the skin rather than injectables.

What does it feel like?

In order to alleviate any pain that may be experienced as a result of the treatment, our therapist will apply local anaesthetics to the affected areas. It is possible to feel pulses as the ultrasonic energy is administered, and there may be some mild discomfort when treating locations that are close to the bones; however, neither of these sensations will be intolerable nor long-lasting.

I have saggy skin, can I use this treatment?

Of course, you can! The Ultherapy treatment is appropriate for anyone who is experiencing a loss of collagen and sagging in the face. In most people, the loss of collagen begins when they reach their thirties. However, because the process of skin ageing can be affected by a variety of circumstances, age is not the only issue that should be considered.
