High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU)

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Treatment

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment is a breakthrough in technology that offers effective non-invasive facelift and skin tightening. This uses ultrasound energy that helps encourage the production of collagen, which then leads to tighter, firmer skin. The high-frequency beams used by HIFU treatment allows it to focus below the skin’s surface, avoiding damages to the upper layers. Unlike surgical facelifts, HIFU has no scarring, incisions, and no required recovery time.

HIFU treatment can potentially give the same results as a surgical facelift, but without cutting and disrupting your skin’s surface. Instead, the ultrasound energy used precisely penetrates deep into the skin layers with higher temperature compared to other treatments.

Number of problem areas can be treated by HIFU treatment such as the chin, jawline, eyelids, neck, and other face regions that are wrinkling or sagging.

Similar radiofrequency like Thermage, the energy delivered to the deep layers of skin stimulate collagen and elastin production. This results in natural skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation over time.

Treatment areas

HIFU may be used for…
  • Lifting of the lower face and jaw line

  • Neck lifting and tightening

  • Brow lifting

  • Improvement of hooded eyelids

  • Improvement of nasal labial folds

  • Double chin and turkey neck

  • Lifting of jowls

Frequently Asked Questions

What is sonoQueen?

sonoQueen is, Non-invasive face lifting system using HIFU technology with a self-developed transducer. HIFU is delivered to the dermal layer and to the SMAS layer. The 60℃~70℃ heat creates thermal coagulation, which is to rejuvenate tired collagen and induce neocollagenesis.

What is Queen Therapy?

Queen Therapy is a non-invasive face lifting system using HIGU technology. HIFU is delivered to the dermal layer and to the SMAS of the skin. The optimal heat(60-70 °C) creates thermal coagulation, which is the rejuvenate tired collagen and induce neo-collagenesis

Is it safe?

Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in medical imaging for over 50 years. In addition, the procedure has been approved by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies.

Does it hurt?

Comfort thresholds vary from patient, but it has minimized pain scale comparing to laser treatment as HIFU delivers focused energy without skin damages. Furthermore, it is free from anesthesia cream.

How long does result last?

Patients treated with sonoQueen still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Yearly touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process.

Is there any downtime after treatment?

Slight redness for a few hours following the treatment can occur. Some patientd may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch for a few days but these are typically mild and temporary in nature.
