While powerful skincare ingredients were the most sought-after features of a facial in the past, more and more skincare enthusiasts are looking towards skincare technology that helps make their treatments work harder for them.
Among them, the LED light therapy, radiofrequency (RF) therapy, and ultrasound therapy are probably the most popular because they have a proven track record in delivering wrinkle-reducing, firming, and lifting benefits. These three technologies can be found in many popular aesthetics treatments.
While these aren’t new technologies, what we were surprised by is a new facial treatment in town is able to combine all three technologies within one session. What this essentially means is that we can enjoy all their benefits within a shorter period of time, compared to going for each treatment individually.
We’re talking about the SonoLift Ultra 3-in-1 treatment, which can be used to target signs of skin ageing such as dull and uneven skin tone, pigmentation, skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles.
And the best part? While therapies like ultrasound can be rather painful, this unique treatment is said to be virtually painless.
It sounds too good to be true, and we just had to give it a try to find out if it’s the real deal or just a hype.

Skin Repair SonoLift Ultra 3-in-1 treatment review: What it is like
SonoLift Ultra 3-in-1 treatment is available at Skin Repair, which runs a number of beauty centres in Singapore that are dedicated to customised skincare solutions administered by expert aestheticians and specialists.
Committed to innovation and quality, Skin Repair shared that the SonoLift Ultra 3-in-1 treatment delivers results that are comparable to the popular HIFU treatment. Just like HIFU, it offers a range of benefits and you can instantly see visible results.
After cleansing my skin thoroughly, the therapist prepped my skin with a gel and then started applying the probe onto my face.
The probe, with its unique design, is able to emit red and white LED light, RF waves, and ultrasound waves (also known as sonic waves) at the same time. For the uninitiated, here are what these technologies can help your skin with:
Red LED: It stimulates skin cells to produce collagen so skin can look firmer and smoother.
White LED: This is great for skin rejuvenation and brightening.
Radiofrequency: RF offers multiple benefits, including wrinkle reduction, skin tightening and firming, eye contour lift, and reduction of fine lines.
Ultrasound: This improves the elasticity of skin and stimulates collagen production.
The probe emits heat energy which is rather comfortable on skin. In fact, it is so comfortable that I could almost doze off from the process. However, take note that it may feel warmer on areas where skin is thinner and more sensitive. But don’t worry – the temperature can be easily adjusted by the therapist so you can be sure that it’ll remain at a level that you’re comfortable with.
After going over my entire face with the probe, with special attention given to troubled areas such as the eye area, laugh lines, and jawline, a mask is applied to help soothe skin and hydrate it.
This is a unique hydrating silk mask – a signature treatment created by Skin Repair. It is infused with high concentration of hyaluronic acid, hydrolysed collagen, and other proven anti-ageing ingredients to help enhance the results of the SonoLift treatment.
The masking process was coupled with a pampering shoulder massage that completed the facial treatment on a relaxing note.
Skin Repair SonoLift Ultra 3-in-1 treatment review: Did I like it?
I am familiar with aesthetic treatments that offer firming benefits so I know how some of them can be painful and leave a tingling sensation on the face even after the treatment was over. This was why I was surprised that the SonoLift treatment was relatively painless and has zero downtime.
I didn’t experience any redness nor discomfort during and after the treatment and was able to go about my regular activities right after the session.
More importantly, instant results can be observed. I felt that my jawline looked sharper, double chin less obvious, and signs of ageing such as laugh lines are less visible compared to before. I could also feel that my skin was firmer and more elastic.
And these were experienced just within one session!
I was told that while the treatment is highly effective, it is gentle enough to be done once a week if needed. And the good thing about it is that its benefits will continue to get more obvious with each session, because the technology is able to help skin produce more collagen naturally over time.
This is certainly a facial treatment to consider if you’re looking for an effective anti-ageing treatment with instant results, multiple benefits, and that doesn’t take too long to complete.
