What is HIFU?

HIFU (High Density Focused Ultrasound) is a technology that destroys fat cells with a strong force by concentrating the thermal energy of ultrasound at a specific point. The high-frequency beams used in HIFU devices can help it to reach beneath the layers of the skin, all without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface. Thermal energy can be passed through skin to the target area without damaging the skin by adjusting the desired frequency of ultrasonic wave. The target area may be heated up to 50°C, where fats break down.

How It Works

ULTRAcel Q+ (HIFU) is a non-surgical face lift treatment with fast procedure. Ultrasound energy has wavelengths that can precisely penetrate deep into the deep tissues with higher temperature compared to other treatments. The resulting heat from HIFU device will increase blood and lymphatic circulation as well as the natural healing process, which in turn will stimulate growth of collagen and elastin. The result is firmer skin, less sagging, and fewer wrinkles. The lift-up effect can be felt immediately right after the treatment. At our affiliated clinic, HIFU can be done within 10 to 15 mins. This treatment is recommended for the ones who are concerned about sagging skin on the face as well as the ones with double chin and excess fat in the neck area.


This device is able to help lift sagging skin non-surgically using the ultrasound technology. There are 3 types of dedicated cartridges enabling a more focused and targeted treatment:
· 1.5mm cartridge treats the superficial dermis layer
· 3.0mm cartridge treats the deep dermis layer
· 4.5mm cartridge treats SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system), the layer between subcutaneous fat and muscle

You can see the results immediately after treatment, and there are no side effects such as redness or scabbing.

HIFU Tight

HIFU Tight at our affiliated clinic is a non-surgical lifting treatment that also uses the ULTRAcel Q+, but only with a specific cartridge, which is the 2.0 mm cartridge. It is suitable for those with a higher degree of sagging skin, and treatment areas include the cheeks, nasolabial fold, around the eyes and eyelids. For HIFU Tight, maintenance session can be done once a month, a shorter interval compared to the normal HIFU treatment.

Treatment Procedure

1. Target areas will be cleaned.
2. Local anesthesia may be applied if needed (requires 20 mins extra).
3. An ultrasound gel will be applied.
4. HIFU device will be placed against the skin treatment area.
5. The device will be adjusted to the right setting, after which ultrasound energy will be delivered to the treatment areas in short pulses.

Advantages and Limitations of HIFU

· Stimulates natural collagen production
· No cuts to the skin
· No recovery time
· Noticeable results after just one treatment
· Clinically proven

· Minor redness may occur for a few hours

HIFU Precautions

HIFU system is contraindicated for patients with:
· Open wounds or lesions on the face / neck
· Severe or cystic acne
· Pacemakers and electronic device implants in treated area
· Heart Conditions
· An active systemic or local skin disease that may alter wound healing
· Herpes
· Autoimmune disease
· Diabetes
· Epilepsy


Q1: How many sessions of HIFU will I need?
A1: Most people only need 1 session. However, some prefer to attend a yearly touch-up session. Our affiliated clinic recommends an interval of once every 6 months.

Q2: How is HIFU different from laser procedure?
A2: Unlike laser treatment that relies on light energy, HIFU uses sound energy which has unique properties to allow the energy to bypass the surface of your skin to deep foundational layer not matched by any other cosmetic device.

Q3: Will I be able to resume normal routine immediately?
A3: Yes, you may resume your normal activities immediately after. HIFU treatment has no downtime.

Q4: Will it hurt?
A4: No, it will not. However, comfort levels may vary from person to person, but usually the sensation will last only throughout the procedure.

Q5: I started having loose skin on my neck, will this work for me?
A5: Yes. A good candidate for HIFU is a person with mild to moderate skin laxity where your skin is less firm. This includes loose skin on the neck, sagginess under the chin, wrinkles and fine lines on the chest and a few others.
