SYGMALIFT - HIFU
What is SygmaLift HIFU?
SygmaLift is a novel non-invasive, anti-aging face lifting treatment using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound technology or HIFU, developed and patented by MedixSysteme (Nime, France). Newly launched in Singapore, Acclaro Clinic is one of the first few clinics to offer the Sygmalift HIFU Therapy to our patients. This treatment is is ideal for patients desiring a more V-Shaped face with more definition along the neck and jawline, skin tightening and rejuvenation, as well as reduction in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead and mouth.
How does it work?
The SygmaLift treatment has 3 parts to it, the first two parts harnessing the HIFU technology. It is pain free as compared to other ultrasound systems due to its exclusive use of ultrasound lines in fractionated mode. Results can be seen instantly as the high intensity focal ultrasound works non-invasively from the inside-out. With the combination of the Cold Laser, it further increases rate of collagen synthesis.
PART I: Exclusive Focal Lines of Ultrasound for Facial Remodeling and Lifting
SygmaLift is able to focus at precise depths ranging from 2mm, 4mm, 4.5mm to 5mm. It is not just a facial lifting system, but also a facial remodeling system due to its depth at 5mm. When each individual beam of focused ultrasound passes through the tissue, it creates a progressive thermal effect down to the adi pose tissue to stimulate the breakdown of the fats at the chin and cheek areas.
PART II: Tri-Micro Focal Ultrasound For Skin Rejuvenation and Collagen Stimulation
Tri-Micro Focal Ultrasound targets mainly on the eyes, forehead and mouth where the skin is thinner and more delicate. It is able to stimulate bioactivity at various depths at 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm for remodelling of collagen fibres , promoting oxygenation of the tissues, and regenerating the tissue from the inside-out.
PART III: Cold Laser 635 nm for Bio-stimulation, Improvement of Skin Tone and Enhance Skin Glow
When combined with Cold Laser 635 nm, it enhances the skin glow as it increases rate of collagen synthesis and growth factor production via vasodilation, sending the necessary nutrients to the skin tissue. Cold Laser Therapy can help to calm redness and inflammation, accelerate skin repair, even skin tone and texture, and stimulate circulation and lymphatic system.
Who is the SygmaLift HIFU for?
The SygmaLift treatment is suitable for patients from 25 to 60 years of age, whether used to correct the signs of skin aging, or for prevention of fine lines and laxity around the eyes, mouth, lips and jawline. As the large handpiece helps to remodel and breakdown fat, it is also suitable for patients who are concerned with having the appearance of a double chin.
How fast can I see results, and how long do the results last?
You will notice immediate visible skin tightening and lifting after the treatment and progressively within 40 days as your skin continues to generate collagen, allowing you to have more youthful skin day by day.
For a start, we recommend you to have one treatment per week, in the span of 3-6 weeks, depending on your age and skin condition. After the first course of treatment, the results can be seen progressively within 40 days and will continue to improve and effects can last up to 12 months.
How long does each session take?
The treatment usually takes about 15 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the areas treated. Acclaro’s recommended treatment protocol takes about 1 hour to complete, and is completed over 3 sessions. We will discuss with you on the areas you are most concerned with, and to focus on.
Is there any downtime?
No. Unlike other ultrasound treatment or treatments for face lifting, SygmaLift is painless as the ultrasound energy is emitted in a fractionated mode. It gives great comfort to you and there is no need for painkillers or application of numbing cream.
There is no downtime for this treatment. This is an in-office procedure, allowing you to return to your normal routine immediately after treatment. No special aftercare is required.
Why CHOOSE SygmaLift?
This innovative and patented HIFU technology is able to deposit ultrasound energy in fractionated mode, making this treatment ideal for patients who are afraid of pain, or who are new to aesthetic procedures. The entire process is pleasant and painless, without a need for numbing or anaesthetic cream. The combination of the cold laser therapy means that results are seen as soon as 40 days.
Sygmalift represents a great alternative to other methods of face lifting such as surgical interventions, neurotoxin injections (Botox or Dysport), or dermal fillers.
