Here’s some information for you to understand more about the procedure:
HIFU stands for High Intensity Focused Ultrasound. HIFU is a machine based treatment that uses ultrasound energy to stimulate the production of collagen in the body. It is a non-invasive and safe treatment with little to no downtime. HIFU can be used to target sagginess of the face, neck, body or droopiness of the eyelids. It helps to smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Before the treatment, our doctor will go through a consultation with you to understand your medical history, your desired results, and to go through any questions you may have.
The procedure is performed by our doctor under sterile conditions and takes about 15 – 60 minutes, depending on the area(s) treated. Prior to the procedure, you may choose to numb the areas treated so you will be comfortable during the treatment (topical anaesthesia). During the treatment, you may feel some tingling sensation. Immediately after, you may experience some mild temporary swelling. Otherwise, you may return back to most normal activities.
The ultrasound energy results in some immediate tightening effect, so that the skin feels firmer. Following that, your body will undergo a natural and gradual healing process whereby more collagen is stimulated. This will result in smoother and firmer skin that lasts for weeks to months. Depending on individual skin quality and maintenance, one may choose to undergo the treatment every few months or years.
The cost for the procedure depends on the areas treated, starting from $550 onwards. (Prices quoted are before GST)
For those who do not know, HIFU stands for High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, an advanced cosmetic technology that significantly tightens and lifts several areas of the face. It also reduces signs of aging and improves the tone of the skin in a single session.
HIFU Facelift is a long-lasting, non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin.
Here are some of its benefits of taking the HIFU Facelift treatment:
⦁ Reduces wrinkles and tightens saggy skin
⦁ Lifts the cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids
⦁ Defines the jawline and tightens the décolletage
⦁ Natural looking and long-lasting results
⦁ No downtime, safe and effective
The HIFU Facelift was developed a little over a decade ago. It involves using ultrasound energy or laser beams to trigger the production of natural collagen in the body.
This production of collagen then makes the skin around the face tighter and more supple.
One of the reasons why it is so popular is that it leverages on the body’s natural resources.
This means that there is no need for surgery and so there is no need for healing and recovery. In addition, it is a natural procedure. The client has to return every two to three years. The HIFU V Sculpting Treatment helps to eliminate unwanted fat cells to tighten & lift the skin by using a High Intensity Focused Ultrasonic (HIFU) technology to target the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS), a layer of tissue deep within the skin. By triggering the body’s own regenerative response, the skin is gradually lifted giving the V Sculpt facial contour.

SonoQueen is the newest generation of the multidimensional high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) technology used for non-invasive, non-surgical facelift treatment.
The procedure promotes collagenesis, regeneration of collagen fibers, as well as contraction of tissues for multidimensional firming. For the results, this treatment provides permanent rejuvenating effect that is activated within deep skin layers.
As in the HIFU name, it uses ultrasound energy that helps to stimulate collagen production by delivering the optimal temperature. The high-frequency beams used in HIFU devices can help it to reach beneath the layers of the skin, all without disrupting or damaging the skin’s surface.
SonoQueen is a non-invasive device that uses HIFU technology to penetrate the skin up to 1.5 to 4mm depth. These ultrasound waves will heat the skin tissue beneath the layers that in turn will induce regeneration process – new collagen fibers will form, which means the skin will have an increase in elasticity and reduction of wrinkles.
SonoQueen has a technology that guarantees an accurate and effective treatment without damaging the surface of the skin. It also has the smallest tip for use around the eye and lips area.
1. Target areas will be cleaned.
2. Local anaesthesia may be applied if needed (require 20 minutes extra).
3. An ultrasound gel will be applied.
4. HIFU device will be placed against the skin treatment area.
5. The device will be adjusted to the right setting, after which ultrasound energy is delivered to the treatment areas in short pulses.
Most people only need 1 session with touch-up sessions depending on the their condition
Unlike laser treatment that relies on light energy, HIFU uses sound energy which has unique properties to allow the energy to bypass the surface of your skin to deep foundational layer not matched by any other cosmetic device.
