Fighting off the ravages of ageing is the hardest, especially when you are a busy working woman who’s constantly on the go. As much as we want to spend lots of time and effort on lengthy skincare regimes and weekly facials to maintain healthy and youthful-looking skin, it is not always possible. So a little help from aesthetic procedures is an option you can explore to achieve great results.
Enter one of the most advanced aesthetic treatments on the market right now. Currently a very in-demand procedure in Korea, HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound and it uses precise medical ultrasound for non-surgical tightening and lifting of the skin. The award-winning Ultraformer HIFU is designed to help lift and tone your visage on multiple levels – including face and neck lifting, skin tightening, V-face shaping, jowl / double chin reduction – by melting excess/displaced fat, and inducing collagen rejuvenation within the skin.
HIFU Ultraformer’s effectiveness comes from the focused ultrasound waves which are able to target the different depths of the skin – 3 mm for collagen remodelling, and the SMAS layer at 4.5 mm, which is the layer surgeons target during a surgical face lift!
The result? Collagen production is stimulated and skin is tightened over time to give you a contoured look.
The Ultraformer HIFU procedure which takes approximately 60 mins (for lower face) and is made comfortable with ample numbing. As it has minimal downtime, you can go about your day without worry after the treatment. Prices start at $750 for double chin and $1,500 for the lower face. Prices and procedure length vary for treatments of different areas on the face.
REVITALISE AND REJUVENATE
For a safe and quick way to revitalise your skin, try this treatment which combines the technology of lasers with Hydrafacial Vortex Infusion to combat skin imperfections like pigmentation and acne. A cooling infusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid from the Vortex Infusion helps to brighten and renew skin texture, giving you a smoother, softer visage.
If your skin is in need of some rejuvenation, try the Rejuran Healer which is an injectable polynucleotide (PN) skin booster. Polynucleotide chains are DNA fragments that repair damaged dermal (skin) cells and assist in collagen stimulation. The treatment helps improve skin elasticity, rejuvenate and smoothen skin texture and slow the skin’s ageing.
