Why HIFU Treatment?
Put simply, you can lift & tighten skin for a sharper, younger you with SL Clinic’s HIFU V Sculpting treatment in Singapore!
History of HIFU Treatment in Singapore
In 2009, a new invention in lifting technology took the industry and the world by storm: the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). Compared to other non-invasive skin tightening technologies of the time, HIFU was able to reach deeper for heavier-duty lifting, much like a surgical face lift, but only… without surgery. This ability to fine-tune its focal depth made HIFU a versatile tool 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. With lower costs, reasonable prices and long-lasting effects, HIFU’s popularity in Singapore expanded since 2009.
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 skin. It is the only non-invasive technology cleared by the US FDA to lift the skin on the brow, neck, chin and décolletage.
HIFU V Sculpting focuses a controlled amount of ultrasound energy at a set depth to generate highly localised heat, much like a magnifying glass focusing light rays at a certain point and depth.
When applied to the skin at the suitable depth, this heating of the skin tissue causes an immediate contraction of the tissue and a stimulation of new collagen growth. This helps to promote younger 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 is a versatile procedure with a reasonable price and can treat a range of skin concerns:
➢ Chiefly, it is excellent at lifting and toning loose skin
➢ Elevates sagging skin, especially in the brows
➢ Firms and tightens the neck, double chin
➢ Sharpens the face and burns adipose tissue
➢ Fine lines are also reduced
➢ Able to treat brows, face, double chin, neck, décolletage and even buttocks!
✓ HIFU V Sculpting is highly versatile and can be tailored to suit each patient’s needs, ranging from superficial to deep skin concerns
✓ Ability to perform heavy-duty lifting of the skin
HIFU V Sculpting is very safe. HIFU technology is US FDA approved, and has been in the market since 2009, with over thousands of satisfied patients in Singapore and abroad.
Greater tightening results with HIFU V Sculpting & Thermage
While HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) heats the skin from the inside-out, Thermage CPT heats the face from top-down. The two procedures work synergistically to give a 3-Dimensional non-invasive lift.
But which is better? In fact, both are excellent skin lifting treatments, each one excelling at different aspects.
Due to its top-down heating approach, Thermage CPT addresses concerns in the dermis – skin texture, pore size, wrinkles, firmness. The non-invasive, non-surgical HIFU with its inside-out heating mechanism penetrates deep into the deeper layers (e.g., SMAS or even deep fat layer) to lift skin that’s sagging from gravity, much like a face lift. This is why having both treatments done means you stand to reap maximum results.

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, skin will feel tighter. Additional lifting and toning will naturally occur over 3 to 6 months and possibly even sooner.
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 can last up to a year or more. Results vary by the individual and lifestyle choices.
Patients typically feel some slight aching, especially in shallower areas (e.g., jawline, forehead). This is quite tolerable. Pain-killers are also usually given before treatment. Some patients also opt for additional sedation, though this not necessary.
Because it is non-invasive, there is very 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 and discomfort are rare after the procedure. Occasionally, mild swelling is noticed after the treatment but disappears in two or three days.
HIFU V Sculpting is suitable for anyone desiring a non-invasive method to improve their sagging or aging 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
