HIFU, or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is the latest non-surgical face-lifting beauty trend to hit Hong Kong. The procedure is painless, non-invasive and FDA-cleared so it's been established as 100% safe - which is why I was excited to give it a go. The HIFU Magic V Lift at Princessbrows is an advanced form of HIFU that uses focused ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the layers of the dermis, lifting and tightening the face and neck. How it works is, the stimulation promotes the growth of new collagen, which results in a firmer and more toned appearance. The best part? The results develop over 2-4 months, with continued improvement for up to 6 months and lasting approx. 2 years.
Rebecca Chung, the super sweet founder of Princessbrows, was there when I arrived and she explained in depth how the machine worked. I told her I wanted to target the sides of my cheeks under my lips, where there's a more noticeable sagging. She did mention how people nowadays (e.g. me lol) are always glued to their phones, so constantly looking down at your device can speed up the skin's natural inclination to sag, especially around the jaw/chin.
The procedure took around 30-45 minutes - and I didn't feel anything, considering the machine actually heats up the inner tissue to 60-100 degrees celsius. Ultrasound gel is first spread on your face, and the machine is rolled from the bottom of your chin to your temple in long strokes. I did my cheeks, neck and sides of my nose (yes, you can do that too). The results are immediate, very akin to having a botox or face lift treatment without the pain or risks involved. Princessbrows offers an awesome rate for the first time trial (so you can test it out first and see the results for yourself without fear of getting ripped off), so call +85221171786 or Whatsapp +85298168387 (Olympian City branch) for more details.
Aftercare. Did you know Princessbrows has its own line of cosmetic products too? I took home the "Life Changing Biocellulose Repairing Mask" and "Rebecca Sylvester Life Changing Serum", and use the serum twice everyday.
This pic was taken a week or so after HIFU Magic V Lift. The area around my lips are a lot more defined and tightened!
