Skin-tightening treatment using Ultrasound technology
Smoother and tighter skin
Face, neck, chest
30 – 90 minutes
Ultherapy treats skin that has become wrinkly and saggy as a result of ageing and sun damage. It is suitable for the following areas:
Upper face, including eye brows
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 made up of low-levels of focused heat. It is known to tighten your skin without having to undergo surgery.
With the energy delivered to your skin, the body responds to the Ultherapy treatment by jumpstarting a regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. The treatment does not involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it simply relies on your body’s own collagen-building process to produce natural and visible results.
The entire treatment will take a total of about 60 minutes.
The treatment area is cleaned and numbing cream is applied.
Ultrasound gel is applied and the transducer is placed against the skin.
As ultrasound energy is delivered, a mild poking/warm discomfort may be experienced which is reportedly acceptable to most patients.
Treatment time is typically 60 minutes, depending on the site of treatment.
Mild swelling, redness and soreness can be expected right after treatment. But there should be no problems resuming normal activities.
Some people experience immediate tightening of the skin while most people will experience improvement in the texture and firmness of the skin 2 – 3 months post treatment.
As regeneration of collagen occurs in the treated sites, the skin is tightened and fine lines are softened and smoothened out, resulting in firm, rejuvenated and more youthful skin.
Depending on the severity of the signs of ageing, individual results may vary.
Ultherapy is suitable for people of all ages
For consistent outcomes, treatments are repeated annually.
While tackling the signs of ageing, Ultherapy is popularly complemented by Thermage and other modalities of anti-ageing such as thread lift, fillers and dermalift to achieve 3D facial rejuvenation.
