I’ve tried quite a few aesthetic facial treatments and this is by far, the treatment that has delivered the best and most obvious results. HIFU Ultraformer 3 is a non-invasive treatment that lifts and tightens the skin. The technology uses ultrasound energy to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
I did this treatment at Sozo Aesthetic Clinic in August last year and I’m still enjoying the effects of it now. In fact, the results from HIFU show up the best about 3 months after treatment (collagen takes time to rebuild) and can last for about a year. It’s recommended to do the treatment once every year to maintain the effect. A number of problem areas can be treated by HIFU, such as the chin, jawline, eyelids, neck, and other face regions that are wrinkling or sagging.
My experience with Dr Justin at Sozo Aesthetic Clinic:
Dr Justin was very knowledgable in the field of anti-ageing / skin lifting and gave a thorough explanation of what to expect during treatment and the results that I should see. Numbing cream was applied before the treatment and allowed to sit for about 30 mins. The HIFU treatment lasted for about 20 – 30 minutes and I have to admit that it was painful (but definitely bearable!), especially around the boney areas of the face such as the jawline and cheeks. I hear that HIFU is already less painful compared to other skin lifting treatments such as Ultherapy (although I’ve not done Ultherapy before so I can’t say for sure). It definitely helped that Dr Justin was very patient and gentle throughout the treatment. He definitely made the discomfort a lot more bearable!
I saw obvious face lifting results around the 2nd – 3rd-month mark. My face droops a bit more on the right side, so Dr Justin concentrated more on that area during treatment. The droopiness has improved tremendously, even up to today. Overall, I think that I look fresher, less tired for sure and my skin looks firmer and face more V-shaped. I’m really happy with the results and would definitely do this treatment once a year. After all, there’s no harm in stimulating more collagen production I’m sure!
Results (Front): Face looks obviously lifted, especially on the right side + smile lines less obvious. Face shape looks more V overall and more even as well.
Results (Side): Face looks more lifted + smile lines less obvious + a happy me who’s overall very pleased with the results!
