HIFU uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production to tighten and firm-up skin. This procedure requires no downtime and the results can last up to six months. Since the ultrasound beams are focused on a specific tissue site below the skin’s surface, there is no damage to the upper layers of the skin and adjacent tissues. Aesthetic benefits of this procedure include: Reduction of wrinkles, tightening of skin on the neck, lifting of cheeks, enhancing jawline definition, tightening of the décolletage, smoothening of the skin
The target area is cleaned thoroughly. All make-up and skin care products are removed.
A topical anaesthetic cream may be applied.
Ultrasound gel is applied and the HIFU device is placed against the skin.
Using an ultrasound viewer, the device is adjusted to the right setting after which the ultrasound energy is delivered to the target area in short pulses of a specified duration.
You might feel a bit of heat and tingling while the ultrasound is being applied.
The device is removed and the area is cleaned.
This procedure may not be appropriate for everyone. It works best on people above the age of thirty, who have mild to moderate skin laxity. HIFU won’t work as well for people with more severe cases of sagging skin. People with photo-damaged skin or a high degree of loose skin may need several treatments before seeing results. Avoid sun exposure and sunless tanning. The HIFU procedure can not be done on sunburned and tanned skin. Any and all skin irritants must be stopped on the target area (including glycolic/salicylic acids, retinol products, vitamin C, etc).
In case of post treatment pain, avoid using an ice pack on the treated area. Waxing, tweezing and depilatory creams can be resumed three days after the treatment. Avoid hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms and exercise for at least 3 days post treatment. A non-exfoliant cleanser and a light moisturiser can be used on the day of the treatment. Your normal skincare routine can resume 24 hours post treatment. All skin irritants (including glycolic/salicylic acids, retinol products, vitamin C, etc) can be resumed three days after the procedure. Follow the post procedure protocol instructed by our doctors/aestheticians and apply a broad spectrum sunscreen/sunblock daily to maximise results and minimise irritation. Avoid clinical treatments like wrinkle relaxers, fillers, chemical peels for at least one week post the HIFU treatment.
Slight redness or swelling may occur which should subside quickly. A light, tingling sensation at the treated area may persist for a few weeks. In rare cases, one might experience temporary numbness or bruising which will go away after a few days.
You are older with more extensive photo-ageing, severe skin laxity or extremely sagging skin on the neck. You may need to look at other treatment/procedure options. You have infections and open skin lesions at the target area, severe acne and metallic implants in the treatment area. You have photosensitive skin. If the photosensitivity is due to certain medication, then the HIFU treatment may be possible two weeks or so after completion of the medication. You have active cold sores or skin infections. Treatment will be given once the cold sores have healed and the infection is gone.

It has been a great clinic service experience in Bodycraft. The doctors have helped me a lot from giving best consultation to the best results as well. Very satisfied.
I visited this place for microblading for eyebrows. Met with the consultant and doctor. The doctor was very patient and attentive, he tells you what to expect honestly. The consultant was super sweet and helped with managing my appointment and helped give the best care and treatment. If you ever need any services like wrinkle relaxers, filler or eyebrows I would 100% recommend Bodycraft.
I was skeptical about injections. But I was also worried about my chin. The doctors at Bodycraft assured me for getting fillers and it made a huge difference. Very happy with the results.
