A firmer, youthful face with HIFU Sygmalift
HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is one of the newest, revolutionary treatments for non-surgical facelifts in the world. Once a very painful surgical experience, with a long downtime – HIFY Sygmalift has entirely transformed facelifts into a painless, injection-free, and surgical-free experience.
The Clifford Clinic is one of the first clinics in Singapore offering one of the latest and most advanced HIFU technology – Sygmalift. Sygmalift therapy has transformed the traditional view of a face lift – providing versatility, ease-of-use and extremely satisfactory results!
Why HIFU Sygmalift?
- Long-term results
Looking to reduce wrinkles for a firmer, youthful face?
HIFU uses beams of ultrasound energy with extreme precision, targeting connective tissues and heating the dermis to stimulate collagen production. It is perfect for reducing:
- Saggy Cheeks
- Crow’s feet
- Jowl Reduction
- Laugh lines
Sygmalift is perfect for:
- Facial Rejuvenation
- Wrinkle Reduction
- Facial Remodeling
HIFU for Age Prevention
Our collagen production starts to slow as we age, and the elastic fibres across the skin start to become less dense. HIFU jumpstarts the collagen production by heating up and stimulating existing collagen fibres. This causes them to thicken, resulting in a long-term tightening and lifting effect!
Due to the high energy emitted by the ultrasound lasers, it is also used to melt facial fats providing a very welcome side-effect! This not only results in more youthful skin, but a tighter, and smaller facial size as well! The first HIFU technology with the ability to not only tighten the skin, but also to melt fats! Now who would not want a slimmer jaw line, a reduced double chin as well as reduced jowls.
Sygma Body for Fat & Cellulite
Sygma Body is an effective solution for body shaping treatments – effective against fats and cellulite on the abdomen, hips and legs. Patients have reported proven results from practical tape measurements and peer reviews. Sygma Body is a recommended complementary procedure to complete your facelift with HIFU.
Sygmalift Therapy is the perfect treatment for patients who do not want surgical rejuvenation.
It is an overall comfortable and painless procedure. However you may feel a very slight ache as the ultrasound works off the facial contours. The procedure takes about 1 hour and has no downtime for most patients.
Yes! It is a suitable procedure for anyone of any age. It is safe for all skin types as well. If your case of sagging skin is severe, several rounds of treatment may be required for noticeable results.
It is not only a good treatment for those who already have wrinkles or sagging skin. It is also perfect for younger persons looking to have a more v-line, sharper or smaller face shape. HIFU Sygmalift can be used to lift cheeks and jawline, resulting in a sharper and more defined lower face.
We recommend it done on a monthly basis as an anti-aging maintenance. After the procedure, it is best to complement the treatment with anti-aging products with peptides to maintain a healthy skin regeneration cycle.
Depending on the areas of treatment, here are the positive results you can expect from the procedure.
– Reduced wrinklesand fine lines
– Sharper V-line
– Tighter and smoother skin
– Pore reduction
– Double chin reduction
– Skin tone improvement
– Lifted neck
Thermage uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen growth deep within the soft tissue as well as the Superficial Muscular Aponeutotic layer (SMAS). This concept is based on the ability of radiofrequency waves to cause collagen contraction and skin tightening due to tissue resistance and heating of the fibrous septa.
HIFU on the other hand uses high intensity focal ultrasound to stimulate this collagen contraction also resulting in similar tightening.
So one might ask what is the difference between the 2? The main difference is in the treatment duration and treatment protocol. Thermage can be done every 6 months or once a year depending on the lift required. Also Thermage is slightly more painful as compared to the HIFU Sygmalift.
The main difference is the pain. HIFU Symalift uses fractionated HIFU which is literally painless. This is the first machine in the market to apply fractionated technology in HIFU. Traditional HIFUs have always been using very focus large beams that penetrate at precise depths in the skin causing alot of pain during the treatment. With the HIFU Sygmalift, 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 resulting in skin tightening.
