Non-Surgical Facelift

A Non-Invasive, Anti-Ageing Treatment for Skin Lifting and Tightening

What is HIFU?

HIFU, short for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a relatively new non-invasive and non-surgical alternative to face lifts which uses ultrasound energy to encourage the production of collagen, resulting in firmer skin.

At Astute, we utilise 10THERA 2-line simultaneous irradiation HIFU laser to non-invasively deliver ultrasonic heat energy to the dermal and SMAS layers of the skin.

It helps to promote collagen and elastic fiber productions which assists in full-face lifting, tightening, collagen regeneration and skin tone improvement.

How does HIFU work?

HIFU utilises ultrasound energy which heats up the tissue below the skin's surface, reaching 60-70 degrees celcius to trigger new collagen growth and promote effective healing and tissue reapair.

It targets 3 key layers: Epidermis, Deep Dermis and Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System.

At 1.5mm depth, it reaches the superficial dermis to be able to reduce melanin to lighten pigmentation and brighten skin.


At 3mm depth, the energy reaches the deep dermis for a skin tightening effect by controlled heating of skin tissue and stimulation of collagen production


At 4.5mm depth, it reaches the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) for a skin lifting effect.


Benefits of HIFU

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses a special ultrasound device to create heat at a deep level within the skin, damaging targeted skin cells to encourage and stimulate the body’s natural healing response.


This allows collagen to be produced to aid cell in cell regrowth. The increase in collagen results in tighter, firmer skin with fewer wrinkles.


Some of the benefits include:

  • Wrinkle reduction

  • Tightening sagging skin on the neck (sometimes called turkey neck)

  • Lifting the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids

  • Enhancing jawline definition

  • Tightening of the décolletage

  • Smoothing the skin

Treatment Areas

Forehead, Eyelids & Eyebrows

Overactivity and repeated brow lifting could cause frown lines and forehead wrinkles to emerge on the face.

Nasolabial Folds

Also known as laugh lines due to the loss of facial bone density, collagen loss, sagging skin, and the fall of face fat pads, the nasolabial folds could get deeper with time.


Sagging of the jawline occurs as a result of worsening jowls and collagen loss (too much skin heaviness and folds on either side of your lower face).

Saggy Cheeks

We have a lot of fat pads beneath the cheeks. When we become older, parts of the fat pads droop, making the cheeks look sagging.

Neck Lines & Neck

Ageing, sun damage, and a lack of moisture, and care may all make the neck skin become drier, less elastic, and thinner.

  • What skin type is Multi-Action Cream suitable for?
    Skin types showing signs of significant aging: loss of elasticity and facial definition, puffiness, decreased skin density, pigmentation It is not recommended for patients with acne-prone skin. It is a corrective treatment, not a moisturizer. Added moisturizer could be required, or use CALECIM® Professional Restorative Hydration Cream after application.
  • What skin type is Restorative Hydration Cream suitable for
    Skin types showing signs of dehydration: fine lines with dull texture and uneven skin tone. Premature-aging due to dryness or environmental exposure It is not recommended for patients with acne-prone skin. When used in conjunction with CALECIM® Professional Multi-Action Cream, skin is ensured of the optimal hydration levels required for healthy self-healing and rejuvenation.
  • I have oily/acne-prone skin, is CALECIM® Professional suitable for me?"
    We recommend that you treat the acne before using CALECIM® Professional products.
  • Can I apply CALECIM® Professional Serum and Multi-Action Cream together?
    Yes you can. Apply Professional Serum after cleansing and toner, followed by Multi-Action Cream onto the face, up to hairline, around eye contour area, extending to the neck and décolleté. Restorative Hydration Cream can be used after as a moisturizer We find that improvement is most obvious around the eye, cheek and jowl area, hence it is important to remind patients to apply the cream to a level below the jawline.
  • Does Multi-Action Cream act as a moisturizer?
    Multi-Action Cream is mildly moisturising. For those with oily skin, Multi-Action Cream is sufficiently moisturizing without additional application of moisturizer. For other skin types (dry or combination skin), we recommend that you apply your own moisturiser after Multi-Action Cream, or use Restorative Hydration Cream.
  • Can I apply Multi-Action Cream around my eyes?
    Yes you can. For the upper eyelids, restrict application to the area just under the eyebrows. Please ensure Multi-Action Cream does not enter eyes as it may be mildly irritating.
  • Does CALECIM® Professional products contain preservatives?
    Yes they contain proprietary preservatives.
  • Why is Multi-Action Cream consistency different in this bottle?
    CALECIM® Professional is made as naturally as possible. It is a biological product that is derived from stem cells. The consistency of the creams may vary from batch to batch, however, this will not affect the efficacy of the product.
  • Have you heard of any bad reactions to this product?
    We have had thousands of patients use our products which have been dispensed by doctors around the world. We have not received news of any significant adverse reactions. Should there be any adverse reaction, the patient should stop using the product, and this is recommended for any cosmetic product.
