What is Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting?

 Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting uses focused ultrasound energy to target skin layers just below the surface. The ultrasound energy causes the tissue to heat up quickly. It then applies the focused Ultrasound energy to a depth of 2~5 mm locally targeting deeper tissues in the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), dermis and subcutaneous tissue layers reinforcing tissues to renewal through thermal tissue ablation. The new tissue synthesis may occur within a few months to strengthening the skin’s elasticity and structure naturally from within.

Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses Focused Ultrasound Technology to create a micro-injury in the deep dermal and Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) layer. HIFU stimulates the cells, encouraging tissue rejuvenation in the SMAS layer and collagen production – resulting in lifting and tightening of skin naturally.

Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting works best on people aged 30 and above with mild-to-moderate skin looseness. Skin that is photodamaged or has a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.

Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin looseness, or very saggy skin on the neck are not well recommended and may need surgery.

Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting is not recommended for people with infections and open skin injury/wounds at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.


1. What are the benefits?

A 2017 study involving 32 Korean people showed that Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting significantly improved skin elasticity of the cheeks, lower abdomen, and thighs after 12 weeks. People treated with Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting has seen an improvement in the appearance of their face and neck after 90 days. 

Benefits include:
– Elimination of wrinkles and fine lines.
– Better and more prominent jawline.
– Smoother skin.
– Lifted eyelids, cheeks, and eyebrows.
– Tightened skin (especially at saggy areas like the neck)

2.What would I experience during the treatment?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel the little amount of energy being transported to specific depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is delivered.

You may experience slight discomfort during a Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting treatment. Some people describe it as tiny electric pulses or a slight prickly sensation.

If you are worried about pain, you may ask the therapist to apply numbing cream before treatment. 

3.Is Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting painful?

Our machine is from the biggest and most famous HIFU manufacturer in Korea, developing fast and virtually painless technology in ultrasound delivery. Most customers find the sensation bearable and understand the better benefits without numb anesthesia. However, if you prefer to be numb before the treatment, do raise it to our aestheticians.

4. Is there any downtime for this treatment?

Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting treatment has no downtime, and you can continue your work or daily activities right after this treatment. It is non-invasive and does not create cuts. Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling, gradually reducing over the next 2 – 4 hours. 

However, some may experience an aching feeling after Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting treatment, which may last up to 1 week.

5. What are the side effects?

Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting is very safe if performed by a trained aesthetician. Some slight redness or swelling may occur, but it should subside quickly. A light tingling sensation of the treated area may remain for a week.

There are no known side effects; however, some may experience an aching feeling after Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting treatment, which may last up to 1 week.

6.What type of skin is suitable for this treatment?

Ageing Skin
Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting is the perfect solution for any skin aging issues. Skin for the mid-30’s to 50’s, when it starts to appear unsightly due to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging. To regain a younger-looking and radiant skin, most people will consider getting the Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting treatment.

People with photodamaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results.Older people with more extensive photo-aging, severe skin looseness, or very saggy skin on the neck are not recommended and may need plasma treatment of surgery procedure.

Acne Skin
Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting is not recommended for people with infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe or cystic acne, and metallic implants in the treatment area.

If active acne is present, it is recommended to perform the treatment only after the acne is treated with no signs of infection or inflammation.

 Sensitive Skin
Most sensitive skin types are suitable. However, those with active inflammatory eczema or allergies will require proper treatments first before doing the Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting Treatment.

7. Do I see result in one session? How long can the effect last?

After the first Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting treatment, you may see some initial effects. A course of 3 sessions once a month is highly recommended to achieve the maximum results that can last 1 year to 1.5 years. The ultimate results will usually take place over 2-3 months as new collagen is regenerated. This collagen regeneration process continues up to 6 months after the initial treatment.

Since the procedure stimulates collagen production, how long the results last depend on your lifestyle. HIFU treatment results typically last for 12 months. 

8. Is Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting invasive?

Focused Ultrasound Face Lifting is a non-invasive treatment creating a facelift and v-shape without the need for surgery or needles.

This is an relaxing facial treatment. Sherlyn is very professional with profound knowledge on skincare and skin conditions. Korea facial establishments are known for their innovative and effective treatment and I am glad to have found Cheongdam Korean skin management for a busy individual like me.

Highly recommend Cheongdam to everyone! 💕 I have tried out several other skincare places and never seen such improvement to my skin despite spending thousands there (on lasers, facials, etc.). I have been with Cheongdam for almost a year and have seen and experienced a great improvement to my skin. My pimple outbreaks have become less frequent and I’m mostly left with scars to deal with now. Joanne (TP) will personalise my treatment each time based on the skin conditions of that day. Not only does she recommend and administer effective treatments, she also provides facial massage sometimes 😍 She takes pride in her work and does not push her customers to get packages / treatments by hard selling. Thumbs up! 👍🏻
