Gain Without Pain

Yes, it really is possible to achieve a more defined facial contour and younger-looking skin without an invasive procedure.

A state-of-the-art device for non-invasive face lifting and rejuvenation, the Sygmalift treatment does not require injections or incisions — ideal if you want tighter, younger skin without surgery. This device combines ultrasound and laser in a pain-free experience.

How does Sygmalift work?

The device has three handpieces, each with a distinct application:

Exclusive fractionated focal lines of ultrasound for facial remodelling and lifting

The high intensity focal ultrasound (HIFU) concentrates up to 1,000 intersecting beams of ultrasonic energy per second over 2.5 seconds in fractionated emission mode. It’s a painless process — no numbing cream or local anaesthesia is required. Ultrasonic energy is delivered via focal lines, allowing it to target larger surface areas, which brings about more efficient treatments.

The device focuses at precise depths of 2mm, 3mm, 4.5mm and 5mm, ideal for achieving lifting and tightening of the skin. The HIFU also reduces fat by disrupting fat cells via thermal and mechanical actions, with the laser further improving drainage. The specific laser wavelength initiates the opening of transitory pores in fat to allow lipid material to escape. This helps reduce fat volume in stubborn areas, such as the jowls and double chin.

Tri-micro focal ultrasound for skin rejuvenation and collagen stimulation The tri-micro focal ultrasound targets three depths of skin at 1mm, 1.5mm and 2mm. This stimulates the regeneration of skin and tissue, primarily benefiting the thinner skin of the eyelids, forehead and around the mouth. This technology has been clinically proven to be an effective, non-invasive technique for the stimulation of bioactivity. It also supports the oxygenation of tissue and rejuvenation of collagen fibres. The result is wrinkle reduction with tighter, smoother skin.

Cold laser 635nm for bio-stimulation to improve skin tone and enhance skin glow This laser, together with the HIFU, boosts skin glow for a rejuvenated and more youthful look. The red laser passes through at two levels: the surface layer near the epidermis, and the deeper layer between the dermis and subcutaneous fat.

This technology increases the rate of collagen synthesis and growth factor production through the dilatation of blood vessels, transmitting essential nutrients to the skin tissue.

What are the benefits of Sygmalift?

Collagen in our skin diminishes as we get older, causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Sygmalift resolves these problems with the following benefits:

  • Accelerates skin repair
  • Calms redness and inflammation
  • Evens skin tone and texture
  • Increases the extensibility of collagen tissue
  • Regenerates skin collagen from the inside out
  • Enhances hydration levels and moisture retention
  • Lifts and remodels the skin
  • Encourages natural regeneration in less than 40 days
  • Stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage

How often should I go for treatment?

The recommended frequency is once a week over a span of three to six weeks, depending on your age and skin condition. After the first session, results will gradually be visible within 40 days and will continue to progress. A maintenance treatment is suggested every six months.

Am I a good candidate?

Sygmalift is suitable for ages 25–60, either with signs of skin ageing or for maintenance and prevention. It is effective for facial v-shaping and accentuating neck and jawlinecontours by skin lifting and mild fat reduction. Sygmalift is also effective for lifting heavy brows, contouring the eyelids and treating facial lines and laxity, particularly around the eyes, jawline and mouth.
