Your Guide To HIFU Treatment In Singapore

Why HIFU Treatment?

Put simply, you can lift & tighten skin for a sharper, younger-looking you with SL Aesthetic Clinic’s HIFU V Sculpting treatment in Singapore!

History of HIFU Treatment

Tracing its roots to the 1880s, ultrasound technology has come a long way since. From its first workable adaptation as a surveillance method for submarines in 1915 to therapeutic medical use in 1942.

Today, the HIFU or High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is used to achieve aesthetic results by Lifting and Tightening the skin on the Face and Neck. HIFU is also used to contour the body by reducing waist circumference, flanks, and fat tissues in the human body.

Compared to other non-invasive skin tightening technologies such as Thermage, HIFU is able to reach deeper for heavier-duty lifting, much like a surgical facelift, but without going under the knife. Its ability to fine-tune its focal depth made HIFU useful in targeting various concerns.

Since its invention, HIFU is now used to burn stubborn fat, tighten the SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer, and more. Patients who are averse to the downtime associated with a surgical facelift may find HIFU ideal.

What Is HIFU V Sculpting?

HIFU V Sculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound to lift, tone and tighten loose and saggy skin on the brow, neck, chin and décolletage.

HIFU V Sculpting focuses a controlled amount of ultrasound energy at a set depth to generate localised heat, much like a magnifying glass focusing light rays at a certain point and depth.

When applied to the skin at a suitable depth, this heating of the skin tissue causes a contraction of the tissue and stimulation of new collagen growth. This helps to promote skin rejuvenation. HIFU activates the skin’s regenerative process, and over the next few months, further tightening occurs. This results in the lifting of the treated area and the tightening of the skin.

HIFU V Sculpting Can Treat A Range Of Skin Concerns:  

  • Chiefly, it can help you lift and tone loose skin
  • Elevate sagging skin, especially in the brows
  • Firm and tighten the neck, double chin
  • Sharpen the face

  • Able to treat brows, face, double chin, neck, décolletage and even buttocks!


  • HIFU V Sculpting can meet various patient needs, from superficial to deep skin concerns.
  • Ability to perform heavy-duty lifting of the skin


HIFU is a non-invasive procedure that has been researched on and developed by scientists for over a decade., It is generally safe and effective when performed by a trained professional. Always speak to a certified doctor to know more about how HIFU can help you achieve your goals. Contact us now.

Is HIFU V Sculpting Painful?

There is some discomfort during the treatment but it is definitely not unbearable.

Our strategies to reduce discomfort include the use of numbing cream, prescribing oral painkillers, providing vibration for distraction and playing light music in the background. While these may seem like a lot, we want you to have the most comfortable experience during the treatment because skin tightening treatments are very important in combating saggy skin. 

Many customers have commented that doing HIFU with us was more comfortable than doing the same treatment at other clinics.

HIFU V Sculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin lifting treatment that uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. It is able to focus the ultrasound at various depths: dermis, hypodermis and subcutaneous tissues, as well as the SMAS layer (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) to generate skin lifting.

HIFU V Sculpting is able to treat many deep skin concerns – sagginess, stubborn fat, droopiness and more.

HIF V Sculpting can be used to treat sagginess on many areas of the face and body:

  • Full face, including brows
  • Jawline
  • Double chin
  • Neck
  • Décolletage

HIFU technology has been around for over a decade and used in various applications. Plus, as a non-invasive procedure, the risks involved are comparatively lower.

Depending on your skin condition, most patients see tighter more lifted skin, and renewed facial contours. Once droopy brows are strengthened for a refreshed, more youthful appearance.

Immediately after a single HIFU V Sculpting treatment, your skin may feel tighter, though not necessarily visibly tighter. However, the results will continue to improve as additional lifting and toning will naturally occur over 3 to 6 months and possibly even sooner.

Note that risks, results, and recovery will vary by the individual.

After assessing your needs, the doctor can perform the treatment in approximately an hour for a treatment of the face (longer for the body), subject to the doctor’s schedule. Otherwise, a later appointment can be made for the procedure itself.

HIFU V Sculpting results vary by individual lifestyles and genetics. Factors that can affect the longevity of the results include smoking habits, sleep patterns, diet, exercise, stress, genetical predispositions, etc.

Some patients report results lasting a year or more, while others report results lasting less than a year. Speak to our doctor to know a more personalised answer.

Because it is non-invasive, there is little downtime with HIFU V Sculpting. You are free to return to daily activities immediately after treatment. Makeup can be applied immediately after the treatment session.

Skin redness is seen in some patients after treatment but generally disappears within several hours. Bruising, though rare, can occur after treatment. Occasionally, mild swelling is noticed after the treatment but disappears in two or three days.

Note that the above are just commonly reported, and the exact downtime, if any, will vary by the individual.

HIFU V Sculpting is suitable for anyone desiring a non-invasive method to improve their sagging or ageing skin. The procedure is suitable for all skin types, and for both men and women. As with all medical procedures, you should be sure to disclose all of your medical history and current habits such as smoking and use of blood-thinners, medications, birth control pills, or supplements.

HIFU V Sculpting may be unsuitable in the following circumstances:

  • Patients with unrealistic expectations, such as those who seek to reverse skin ageing and return to their younger self
  • Patients using a cardiac pacemaker or other active implants
  • Pregnant women
  • Treatment areas with open wounds, infections, skin irritation, active acne, and hypersensitivityExtra care will be taken in the cases of keloids, implants, permanent dermal fillers.

Pre-care: Ensure that you’re in a good state of health and not recovering from a bacterial or viral infection. Please ensure that you’re well hydrated before the procedure.

Post-care: Avoid the consumption of alcohol, swimming, strenuous exercise and going to a sauna for a day.

From our late twenties, our skin starts to lose collagen and elastin.

his also means most people start to look more saggy, especially for ladies and after childbirth. By starting treatments early, we start to bank in more collagen to the skin via skin tightening treatments.

Starting once you notice sagginess will go a long way in preventing and treating saggy skin.

When you stop treatments, you will not look more saggy than before. In fact, you will look better than someone of the same age who has not done any treatments. 

With age, gravity and cumulative UV exposure, our skin will certainly become more saggy. Making skin tightening treatments a routine will slow down the process of sagging.

So you will not suddenly look more saggy if you decide to stop. But you will look better than someone of your age who has neglected their skin in the time that you have done skin tightening treatments. This is because your skin would have more collagen and elastin due to the treatments.
