HIFU – Sygmalift
Keen on facial rejuvenation and lifting saggy skin but unable to afford any downtime? Done Ulthera or HIFU before but unable to tolerate the pain and discomfort?
Whoever said the cost of beauty is pain most certainly did not know where to look! Looking good does not mean having to endure discomfort just to see results.
Introducing the revolutionary HIFU Sygmalift. Painless, Zero downtime and Effective lifting and firming.
What is Sygmalift
This is the latest pain free, skin tightening and lifting technology. Sygmalift HIFU uses fractionated ultrasound beams which are sent intermittently over 2.5 seconds exposure time. To treat the eyes or forehead, Sygmalift HIFU uses a special Tri-Micro Focal Ultrasound for skin rejuvenation and collagen stimulation. The procedure is completed with a Cold Laser 635nm treatment which induces bio-stimulation to improve skin tone and enhance skin glow.
Say goodbye to numbing creams. This unique technology makes the procedure absolutely comfortable and painless. Relax and enjoy each session while the machine does its work of tightening and lifting.
Utilizing a combination of HIFU and laser, Sygmalift brings new dimensions to non-invasive face lifting. Sygmalift targets the loose skin, sculpts the jawline and contours the face. It is not just a facial lifting system, but also a facial remodelling system. HIFU can disrupt fat cells through thermal and mechanical stimulation. This is especially useful for treating the unwanted double chin. The cold laser applied after HIFU offers deep biostimulation and accelerates the skin’s healing process. This means results can be seen much earlier compared to the traditional HIFU machines. The cold laser also enhances the glow of the skin and smoothens the fine lines. The Trimicro Focal Ultrasound hand piece stimulates new collagen growth within the skin.
What is HIFU
HIFU, also known as high intensity focused ultrasound, uses the latest technology to target and lift the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer in the skin. HIFU is a safe, non-surgical treatment that uses the body’s own regenerative response to gradually lift the skin over targeted areas such as the face and neck. HIFU helps in fat remodeling, targeting difficult to treat areas such as the double chin and helps with facial contouring to achieve the V-shaped face.
WHAT IS THE SMAS LAYER
The superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS) layer is a layer of tissue deep within the skin. It is one of the most important support structures for the face. With age, the SMAS layer loses its elasticity. This results in sagging skin, jowls and deepening of the nasolabial folds. It is this exact SMAS layer that a surgical face lift would target in order to create lifting of the face. Manipulation of this layer lifts and rejuvenates, thereby reducing signs of aging.
HOW IS IT DONE
A layer of gel is first applied to the skin. The Sygmalift HIFU hand piece is then placed over the area of skin identified for treatment. There are no needles involved and the skin barrier is not breached in this process. The Sygmalift HIFU is completely comfortable and most patients can actually fall asleep during the procedure. Common areas to be treated include the face and neck. The treatment will take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. After treatment, patients can immediately resume their daily activities as this procedure is associated with zero downtime. Usual skin care and make up products can be applied immediately post Sygmalift treatment.
Some patients may experience a slight lift immediately after the procedure. In most cases, the full extent of the lifting effect will be experienced 1-2 months after treatment.
As the SMAS layer is tightened, one can expect a more lifted mid-face, which in turn translates to improvements in sagging skin, jowls, laugh lines and the jaw line. HIFU can also help in tightening loose skin and fat under the chin and jawline.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED
It is recommended to have the procedure done once a week for 3-6 weeks. This however, depends on the degree of skin laxity and one’s biological collagen response to the treatment. Hence, some patients may benefit from additional sessions.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST
The Sygmalift HIFU treatment stimulates collagen production to produce natural lifting results. How long the results last depend on each individual’s natural aging process. Typically, results can last about 1 year. A touch up or maintenance session can be done once every 9 to 12 months. While a Sygmalift HIFU face lift will not duplicate the results from a surgical face lift, it is still a viable alternative for patients who are not keen on surgery due to the downtime or surgical risks involved.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS
The Sygmalift HIFU treatment is a safe, painless procedure with zero downtime. This allows patients to resume their activities immediately after treatment. Some possible side effects include slight redness, swelling or tingling post procedure, but these usually resolve quickly.
Sygmalift – HIFU (for lower face and neck ) price starts at $2000* ( not available)
