What is Hifu

Apr 4

Hifu is a cancer treatment that uses high-frequency sound waves to heat up and destroy tumours. You have HIFU as an outpatient at hospital and usually go home the same day. You might have an MRI scan before the treatment to find out the exact location of the tumour.

During the Hifu Singapore treatment, a hand-held device is placed on your skin and emits ultrasound waves. The waves penetrate the surface of your skin and heat up the deeper layers. This triggers new collagen growth and tightens your skin. You might feel a slight tingling during the procedure, but this sensation usually disappears quickly. You might also experience some bruising.

The HIFU treatment does not make any cuts on the face, unlike surgical facelifts. This technology stimulates collagen production, resulting in a more youthful and vibrant complexion. It is effective in treating loose sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines around the face, neck, and chest. It also treats enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and texture, and brown spots due to excessive sun exposure. HIFU can also reduce the appearance of double chin and improve the contour of your face, enhancing your v-shaped jawline.

It is also used to treat prostate cancer, particularly for men with early stage or localised disease. Research shows it can lower erectile problems and bladder control issues, and improve biochemical disease free rates (the chances of your cancer coming back). HIFU is also safer than surgery and less likely to cause nerve damage or incontinence.

However, it’s important to only have HIFU from a registered practitioner who has a good understanding of your health and history. Your practitioner should also explain the benefits and risks of HIFU before you agree to have it. You should not try a DIY HIFU machine bought from an online seller as they may not be safe and could result in serious side effects.

HIFU is generally well tolerated, with few side effects. You might feel some bruising or a mild discomfort from the HIFU treatment, but it does not normally last long. You might also have some numbness in the area of your face after the treatment, but this should quickly subside. Some patients may experience fatigue, but this is only for a few weeks.

You can get a non-surgical HIFU facelift in Singapore by booking an appointment with a reputable practitioner. Look for a practitioner that has trained in using the Ultraformer III, a world-leading HIFU device. They should also offer a free consultation to check that you are suitable for the treatment. It’s best to book a consultation at least a week before your treatment. During the consultation, your practitioner will evaluate whether HIFU is right for you and advise on how many sessions you should have. You can expect a noticeable difference after the first few treatments, with results lasting up to 6 months. You can maintain the results by having regular HIFU maintenance sessions. You can even combine HIFU with other skincare treatments for more visible and long-lasting results.
