Lifting Equipment at Korean Skin Clinic

What are Lifting pieces of equipment?

Lifting pieces of equipment are often associated with the terms gym, health, and fitness. These exercises involve lifting heavy equipment to trigger the muscles in our body. However, did you know that lifting equipment is also utilized in aesthetics? Yes, surgical doctors and licensed medical practitioners use devices like Ulthera and HIFU for lifting procedures that adhere to skin laxity issues. When you were young, did you always jokingly tease your parents or grandparents about their sagging skin or prominent wrinkles? That’s completely normal because these manifestations are part of growing up, and little did you know that it will happen to you too. Fortunately,  when you age, you may now treat these skin issues through non-surgical and non-invasive procedures, such as HIFU Doublo Gold, Ultherapy, Accusculp lasers, Thermage, and other treatments with RF needling plasma lasers.

HIFU Doublo Gold

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), or MRgFUS (MRI-guided Focused Ultrasound) and FUS (Focused Ultrasound Surgery), is known for treating a variety of tumors, cancer, and malignant diseases. It uses an ultrasound transducer to generate heat for a particular body part to destroy the targeted tissues. Additionally, it is repeated until none of the targeted tissues exist. However, researchers found significant results and skin improvements from utilizing HIFU for aesthetics.

The Doublo Gold is the new and improved third-generation medical-grade High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) machine from Hironic, which pioneered the utilization of HIFU in South Korea. It is the upgraded version of the original Doublo HIFU, for it has a faster shot speed of 300 in only 8 minutes, with over a million clinical cases conducted since 2011. Compared to other devices, the Doublo Gold HIFU machine penetrates deeper into the skin, for it can reach the deeper SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer under the fat in a short period. The Doublo Gold HIFU is quicker as it uses a two-way round shooting compared to the one-way shot of Ultherapy. It is also less painful and expensive. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive aesthetic cosmetic procedure that tightens the skin like facelifts, without the painful surgery, fear of needles, and aftermath. The transducer radiates 65-75Cº of High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy to the skin. It creates thermal coagulation to the targeted layers of skin tissue with no damage to the skin’s surface. Then, the body reacts by producing new collagen that helps the rejuvenation. Since HIFU targets a specific tissue in the procedure, it has no adverse effects on the upper layers of the skin. Instead, it revamps the skin’s texture and texture and brightens it.


Ulthera is a device used in the treatment called Ultherapy, and the term came from the combination of Ulthera and therapy. In other words, Ultherapy translates to the application of Ulthera as a therapy. It is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that uses focused ultrasound energy to administer lifting and tightening on the skin, especially in the face, neck, and chest.

Ultherapy focuses ultrasound waves to a specific point beneath the skin and deep within and showcases the individual layers of the skin on the device to help the surgical doctor aim for particular areas beneath the skin with high precision. Then, it produces thermal energy that stimulates the formation of collagen and thus, resulting in skin lifting and tightening. Like the HIFU doublo gold, the Ultherapy targets the SMAS layer of the skin and there is no downtime. With this, you may immediately go back to your usual routine without any hindrances. 



Like HIFU Doublo Gold and Ultherapy, Thermage is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure. However, unlike both, Thermage uses radiofrequency (RF) waves to help with tightening and lifting effects. The RF waves transmit heat into the skin by treating the outer layer and extending inward. Additionally, unlike HIFU and Ultherapy, which focuses on specific areas, Thermage can treat larger and broader parts. It does not have downtime, so you can instantly return to your day. 


Accusculpt Laser and RF needling

RF needling (radiofrequency) is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles and RF waves to aid skin tightening and rejuvenation. RF needling treatment creates minuscule dermal wounds in the skin that stimulate collagen, capillaries, and elastin production. Subsequently, the radiofrequency waves create additional damage that enhances effects. With this, the skin grows back smoother and firmer and significantly reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and skin scars.          

On the other hand, the AccuSculpt laser is a lipolasty system treatment that removes excess fat or fats through a laser device similar to liposuction. Hence, the name. So, by reducing fats and soft tissues on the face and certain areas of the body, skin laxity can be prevented to achieve a more sculpted facial feature. Additionally, this process generates collagen formation and an increase in skin elasticity. 


Benefits of Skin Lifting devices:

  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive Facelift
  • Jowl Lift
  • Eyebrows
  • Mandibular Areas (Jawline)
  • Diminished pore prominence
  • Double chin reduction
  • Deep penetration
  • Wrinkles


Lifting devices used in aesthetics like HIFU Doublo Gold, Thermage, Ultherapy, RF Needling lasers, and Accusculpt lasers are all FDA-approved and recommended treatments for skin laxity. However, not all of these are suitable for you. Therefore, you must consult your dermatologist or any board-certified surgical doctor firsthand. Additionally, these treatments are for older individuals who suffer from mild to moderate skin laxity brought by aging (intrinsic and extrinsic). Please note that these treatments are only temporary and would not provide the same level of lift brought by surgical facelifts, so you must have realistic expectations about it. However, unlike surgical facelifts, these are non-invasive and non-surgical, which entails no downtime to the treatments. You will also see immediate results after the procedure, but the best results are seen after a few weeks. The longevity of the treatment depends on the type of treatment you will have. Since Seoul is the heart of aesthetic procedures and treatments, rest assured that undergoing these kinds of treatments will give you your physical goals. Additionally, we are living in the digital era, so lifting devices continuously evolve and innovate to address skin issues better without surgery and its risks.
