HiFirm HIFU is a unique anti-aging treatment that revolutionized non-invasive skin lifting procedures with the use of a patented 2nd generation High Intensity Focused Ultrasound or HIFU technology that radically transformed facial lifting into a virtually painless experience without needles and sans scalpel.

This treatment is ideal for patients seeking out the much coveted V-Shaped face, with skin tightening and improved contours of the neck and jawline, reduction in prominence of double chin, diminished fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth as well as overall skin rejuvenation.

How Does HiFirm HiFU Work?

In Sw1 Clinic, there are 2 components to a complete HiFirm HIFU treatment for a longer and more intense ultrasound effect. This new generation system can concentrate up to 1000 intersecting beams of ultrasound energy, delivering them with extreme precision to pre-calibrated depth of the treated areas, creating a progressive thermal and mechanical action that works from inside out.

PHASE I: Focal lines of patented HIFU energy for facial lifting and remodeling

HiFirm HIFU deposits ultrasound energy in focal lines instead of dots, allowing large areas to be treated at a faster rate with maximum precision of energy placement to the targeted tissues. The ability to reach a depth of 5mm makes this not just a facial lifting system, but a facial remodeling system as well. Additionally, the ultrasound beams create a progressive thermal effect to stimulate the breakdown of fats commonly deposited around the chin and cheek areas –  tackling and improving upon the appearance of double chin, chubby cheeks and jowls.

PHASE II: Tri-micro focal ultrasound for collagen regeneration and remodeling

Tri-micro focal ultrasound energy emitted in triple focal pulsed mode stimulates bioactivity for tissue regeneration at various depths of 1, 1.5 and 2mm, mainly targeting on delicate areas around the eyes, forehead and mouth to smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines for more youthful and vibrant looking skin. In addition, it helps in the remodeling of collagen fibres, promotes tissue oxygenation and regenerates the skin from the inside-out.

What Are The Benefits of HiFirm HIFU?

“The main difference is in the PAIN. HiFirm HIFU uses fractionated HIFU technology which is virtually painless. Though effective, traditional HIFU systems have always been using very focused large beams that cause a lot of discomfort. With HiFirm HIFU, these beams are now broken up into many different fractions, allowing them to bypass the surface of the skin and penetrate at very precise depths to stimulate and remodel collagen, achieving effective skin tightening without paying the price of unbearable pain.”

HiFirm HIFU delivers the combination of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and 635mm laser into the hands of physicians pursuing powerful and painless non-invasive re-contouring of the face, neck and jawline. This system may offer an ideal avenue to success for crafting the popular, proportional V-shaped face highly sought among Asian women.

HiFirm HIFU is a non-invasive facial skin lifting alternative that reshapes and restores one’s facial harmony without needles and sans scalpel. This is an excellent choice for those with a very low pain threshold or prefer a more relaxing treatment option. It is not only good for those who already have wrinkles or sagging skin, but work equally well for younger persons who desire a more defined v-line, sharper or smaller face shape. Some of its outstanding skin benefits are as follows:

✓ Improves the appearance of both superficial fine lines and deep wrinkles with enhanced skin tone and effective skin tightening of face and neck.

✓ Lifts cheeks and sagging jawline for a sharper and more defined lower face.

✓ Reshapes and improves the contours of the chin/jawline via lipolysis.

✓ Improves fine lines and laxity around the eyes, mouth and lips with the tri-micro focal ultrasound probe that spurs collagen growth.

✓ Accelerates skin’s natural healing process for smoother, clearer and more vibrant looking skin.

How Is The Procedure Like?

HiFirm HIFU is painless as the ultrasound energy is emitted in a fractionated mode so there is no need for painkillers or application of numbing cream which incredibly reduces preparation time. The HiFirm HIFU treatment is exceedingly comfortable, often described as a mildly warm sensation. A special conducting gel is applied to the face to allow the probes to glide better for enhanced penetration of the ultrasound beams.

What Kind Of Downtime Do I Expect?

Truly a lunchtime beauty fix that can be done within an hour, HiFirm HIFU has absolutely no downtime and allows you to return to your normal routine immediately after treatment. You can continue with your usual skincare regime and no special aftercare is required.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

You will appreciate visible skin tightening and lifting immediately after treatment, with progressive improvement over the next 4 to 6 weeks as your skin continues to generate collagen, allowing you to have more youthful looking skin with each passing day.

Each person’s skin is unique, but clinical studies suggest that patients will benefit most after 3 sessions done consecutively at monthly intervals. It is recommended to follow this primary course of treatment with regular maintenance sessions at 3-monthly intervals to prolong and upkeep the positive effects of HiFirm HIFU. You can consider our Luxe Lift Program or Trinity Facelift Program which harnesses the synergistic effect of HiFirm HIFUwith technologies such as Light Lift to uncover an overall youthful visage.
