What Is HIFU

What is HIFU ?

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) applies focused Ultrasound energy to a depth of 2~5 mm locally targeting deeper tissues in the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), dermis and Subcutaneous tissue layers reinforcing tissues to renewal through thermal tissue ablation. The new tissues synthesis may occur within a few months, to strengthening the skin’s elasticity and structure naturally from within.

HIFU Therapy is a non-invasive, non surgical treatment that uses Focused Ultrasound Technology to create a micro-injury in the deep dermal and Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer. HIFU helps stimulates the cells, encouraging tissue rejuvenation in the SMAS layer and collagen production – resulting in lifting and tightening of skin naturally.

How does it work?

E-Clip+ HIFU™ energy penetrates deep into the SMAS layer without damaging the skin surface – unlike lasers and Radio Frequency (RF), resulting in skin tightening and lifting.

Is there any downtime?

Unlike Lasers, IPL, needling or surgery, there is no downtime following HIFU treatment. Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment. Normal activities can be resumed post treatment.

Does it hurt?

E-Clip+ HIFU treatment is relatively painless.

When will I see the results?

Treatments by the E-Clip+ HIFU, results will gradually develop overtime. Initial effects will take place in between 1 to 3 months. The body’s healing process continually responds naturally to the treatment for up to 6 months afterwards. Future touch-up treatments can help with the ageing process, which varies by individual.

How many E-Clip+ HIFU Therapy Treatments are required?

We recommend 2 treatments to begin with, spaced 3-6 months apart. Maintenance treatments are recommend every 6 months to 1 year.
