Laser skin tightening is a non-surgical and minimally invasive way to firm skin on the body and can be done on any part of the body. The most popular areas for patients are the face, neck, and stomach. Laser skin tightening can decrease skin laxity (looseness) and smooth wrinkles from any part of the body. Besides laser, HIFU can also be used for skin tightening. Keep reading to find out how our laser and HIFU facelift in Singapore works.
How does laser skin tightening work?
Laser skin tightening works by using an infrared light laser to penetrate beneath the skin. The laser heats up the collagen under the skin, causing the collagen to constrict and the skin to look firmer. It can penetrate to the deep dermis due to its longer wavelength. At Eeva, we use both laser and Hifu synergistically for skin tightening. Eeva’s Ultracel Q+ LinearFirm Technology is a 4th Generation HIFU that delivers excellent face lifting results of conventional HIFU but without the pain!
The Ultracel Q+ LinearFirm Technology is the world’s only linear, and fastest HIFU. HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is a painless and non-invasive way of face lifting that does not require any numb cream. HIFU is an abbreviation for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. This is a quantum leap in medical aesthetic technology that uses targeted ultrasound thermal radiation to lift and tighten the skin of the face and neck to generate a more defined and youthful smoother facial contour. Ulthera and traditional HIFU technology have long been related to discomfort in order to produce effective outcomes. Ultracel Q+ LinearFirm delivers results with no pain, and in a much shorter time.
The 4th Gen HIFU has both linear and dot settings which make its lifting effects both immediate and long-lasting, as compared to conventional HIFU which requires 1-3 months to see visible effects. Ultracel Q+ is both FDA and CE approved, providing great additional benefits such as skin brightening, V Face+Fat Reduction, pore reduction, and brow lift.
Ultracel Q+ LinearFirm vs Other Treatments
Compared to other skin tightening treatments like traditional ultrasound therapy, radiofrequency, and radiofrequency micro-needling, the Ultracel Q+LinearFirm Technology is superior in both time, cost, and result effectiveness.
On the other hand, RF micro-needling does not provide as lasting and deep results for skin tightening, as it focuses on the superficial layers of the skin. It may also require more sessions compared to HIFU.
RF skin tightening treatment usually works more on the superficial levels of the skin so it helps improve skin texture, wrinkles and fine lines. Ultracel Q+ works at different depths creating multiple layers of lifting and superficial skin tightening – in addition, it can also do HIFU toning and skin brightening. It is suitable for skin sagging, lifting, and tightening.
Compared to conventional ultrasound treatments like ultherapy and HIFU, Ultracel Q+ results are more visible immediately, whereas conventional HIFU results take around 1-3 months to emerge. Conventional HIFU usually takes around 1 hour for the full face, whereas Ultracel Q+ takes only around half an hour.
How does Eeva Ultracel Q+ LinearFirm Facelift work?
When compared to certain traditional face lifting treatments, our painless 4th Gen works faster and more comprehensively. HIFU is no longer what it used to be as a result of this technological advancement. HIFU precisely targets the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), as well as the deeper and superficial layers of skin.
The SMAS, or Subcutaneous Musculo-Aponeurotic System, is a connective tissue supporting system found immediately beneath the skin that helps hold support and facial features in place. The SMAS is an important factor in the ageing process. The SMAS loses support as it ages, as its ability to support the muscles, fat, and skin of the face deteriorate. When gravity and environmental factors combine, the face, eyelids, jowls, and neck sag and lose their youthful energy.
This non-invasive treatment protects the superficial skin layer (epidermis) while permitting deep and uniform heat penetration into the skin at 4.5mm, 3.0mm, and 2.0mm depths to induce collagen tightening, thickening & remodelling, and collagen production. This gradually results in a strong scaffolding matrix in the SMAS, which results in facial tightening, lifting, and firming. This device melts undesirable fat and is ideal for decreasing double chins and lower face fats.
