With the COVID-19 pandemic, masks have become a daily necessity.
When you take off your mask... "My facial wrinkles have become more noticeable," "I am concerned about my double chin," "I feel old...," etc. Many of you might be feeling a change in your appearance.
If this is how you feel, then we recommend "Lift-up without cutting! It is called the "HIFU Facial," which is said to be a "lift-up without cutting!
What is HIFU?
It tackles the root cause of sagging, the SMAS layer, which could only be achieved previously with surgery! HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, a procedure that focuses ultrasound waves on a single point to deliver heat energy with pinpoint accuracy to deep areas, improving facial sagging caused by heat-induced tissue contraction effect.
Heat energy is delivered not only to the shallow layers of the dermis (around the eyes and forehead), under the chin and neck, but also to the SMAS layer (fascia), which has previously only been accessible by surgical procedures through scalpel insertion, and thus allowing for a high lifting effect.
When the sagging SMAS layer fascia shrinks, the entire face is lifted! The HIFU treatment can lift the entire face as the sagging fascia in the SMAS layer shrinks when heat is applied to pinpointed areas of the skin.
Furthermore, since collagen is actively produced to regenerate the skin one to two months after the treatment, beautiful skin effects such as firmness and luster can be expected.

By lifting the face with HIFU, the appearance of your face will be dramatically changed. You will feel the firmness of your face as if it were lifted from the inside! Your skin becomes one tone brighter with a finer texture! Regular treatment will lead you to your ideal skin. (*Effects may vary from person to person.)
How many days after the treatment does the effect of HIFU start?
The peak effect is 2 weeks after the treatment!
New collagen is produced for about 1-2 months after the treatment.
The duration of the effect of HIFU varies from person to person, but many patients feel the lift-up immediately after the treatment. The dryness of the skin settles down after 2 weeks of the treatment, and you will feel the best results. New collagen is produced for about one to two months after the treatment, so the skin will continue to be firm and luminous during that period.
When to take a HIFU according to your schedule
We recommend that you have the treatment 2 weeks prior to your appointment to feel the best results.
Since there is almost no downtime with HIFU, there is no problem if you have it the day before your appointment.
However, in rare cases, the effects of the procedure may vary from person to person, such as swelling the day after the procedure, so we recommend that first-time HIFU patients have the procedure about one week before their appointment just to be safe. Many people want to have the treatment in time for their wedding or pre-shoots, but we recommend having the treatment 2 weeks prior to the wedding for the best results.
How long does the effect of HIFU last?
The lifting, firmness, and luminosity of the HIFU treatment lasts for about 2 months after the treatment.
Therefore, if you want to see long-lasting results, we recommend that you have a treatment once every two months for better and longer-lasting results.
