Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to lift skin on the neck, chin and brow. This cosmetic treatment in Singapore uses focused ultrasound to trigger the face’s natural healing and restorative processes. In the process, the outer layer of skin is not damaged, as the ultrasound directly targets the layer underneath. The result is lifted, toned, and tightened skin on the face.
Common areas that are treated by Ultherapy includes the eyebrows, jawlines, and jowls.
If the procedure is targeting the eyebrows, expect to see a reduced droopiness on the eyelids, smoothened crows’ feet, and an overall refreshed look.
If the procedure is targeting the jawline, cheeks’ sagging skin can be tightened and lifted, improving the folds between the nose and the jaw. Benefits after the treatment include a more defined jaw line, evenness of the skin colour, and an overall improvement in skin texture.
How does Ultherapy work?
Similar to a pregnancy sonogram, a smooth applicator is placed on the skin, projecting an image onto the screen. The same machine is then used to deliver ultrasound energy at a precise depth below the skin.
The ultrasound energy, in essence, is low-levels of focused heat. It is safe and effective for medical use, with about 50 years of history as a tool in the medical field.
During the procedure, no anesthetic is required. Patients have reflected feeling a warm and prickly sensation under the skin where the ultrasound is delivered.
With the energy delivered to your skin, the body responds by jumpstarting a regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
Most patients see the results of ultherapy after 1 or 2 treatments, with effects sometimes visible after the treatment is completed. The natural process of creating new collagen builds over time, so expect to see the results unfold over the course of 2 to 3 months, although some have reported continued improvement for up to six months.
The procedure will take a total of about 60 minutes. There is no downtime after the procedure, meaning patients are able to resume their everyday life immediately after their visit to the clinic.
While ultherapy will not duplicate the results of a facelift, it is a great non-invasive and clinically-proven alternative for patients who would like to lift and tighten their skin. Ultherapy also received great reviews from Singapore patients.
