The Artisan Clinic promises to show the way to a V-shape face! We were recently to try out their signature HIFU Treatment by Dual Hi HIFU – a non-invasive treatment that can be done within the hour and allows clients to get back into their daily routines without any interruptions or much special precautions.
Our first session was a consultation with Dr Hoe Ying Ming – the ‘Snow White Queen Doctor’, known for her dewy fair skin. Dr Hoe holds a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from NUS Yong Loo Lin School of medicine. She specialises in all non-invasive procedures ranging from chemical peels and injectables to non-surgical lifting procedures and minimally invasive facial thread lifts.
Now onto the treatment
During our first consultation, we were advised by Dr Hoe to try the HIFU treatment which was the best solution to melt the fats in the chubby cheeks. The stubborn baby fats that won’t go away despite regular gym exercise and dieting.
Hence, we were really looking forward to The Artisan Clinic’s Dual Hi HIFU. The HIFU treatment is a non-surgical firming treatment that harnesses the power of ultrasound to remodel and rejuvenate ageing collagen and to stimulate depleted “tissue glue”. The most commonly treated areas are the cheeks (for loss of firmness or sagging) and double chin – we opted for both. After opting for the 20 minutes of numbing with topical numbing cream prior to Dual Hi HIFU.
Topical numbing cream was applied for 20 minutes prior to Dual Hi HIFU to mitigate any discomfort. It is a strange sensation on the face as it is our first time doing any aesthetic treatments.
HIFU is the newest treatment system to burn tissue by heating energy of high intensity focused ultrasound. It is based on the same principle of how a magnifying glass can burn paper with a focused concentration of sun ray. While this may sound scary at first, I actually found out from the aesthetician that HIFU technology is actually non-invasive and does not damage your skin!
In addition, they also provide another type of technology helmed as DUAL HI where a dual transducer is used. This dual transducer makes the shot speed faster, giving you less pain and also makes the treatment process comfortable with the reduced time of the procedure.
Moreover, DUAL HI is good for maximising the effect of lifting and tightening through the optimized MHz, reducing the wrinkles on your face. Compared to its facial cartridge, DUAL HI’s body cartridge is equipped with a wider transducer that is optimized for fat reduction and body contouring.
Sag-free jowl, vamoosh.
Immediately after the treatment, we saw a more defined jawline, less of the laugh lines and a V-shaped chin. The treatment was painless except some warm sensation, do we would recommend it to anyone who wants to lose the stubborn chubby fats to a firmer V-shaped face. And the best is yet to come, the optimal effect of the Dual Hi HIFU will become more visible 2-3 months after the HIFU treatment as the repair and rejuvenative process does its magic over the next few weeks. We can’t wait to see the chiselled jawline!
