Looking to lift sagging skin?
Want to look more refreshed and turn back the hands of time? Ultherapy is the answer to your woes. At Lux Medical Aesthetic Clinic, our Ultherapy in Singapore builds new collagen, lifts and tightens loose skin without any surgery or downtime.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy and Ulthera are one of the same facelift treatment. It is a US FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approved, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens your skin. It is the gold standard for non-invasive skin lifting.
Ulthera utilises ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen within the skin. The body’s own natural healing process is used in this treatment to lift and tighten loose skin.
The result is the re-positioning of your skin back to its more youthful position, creating a more refreshed appearance.
How does Ultherapy work?
By delivering focused ultrasound energy, Ulthera targets the SMAS layer to boost collagen deep within the skin without disturbing the surface of the skin.
The ultrasound energy triggers a natural response form the body and jumpstarts the regenerative process to produce new, fresh collagen. No needles, cuts or injections are required for this procedure.
How is Ulthera different from other HIFU treatments available?
Ultherapy is equipped with an ultrasound visual imaging system. This allows the doctor to apply the ultrasound energy at the exact and precise layer within the skin for maximal benefit, tightening and lifting.
This ultrasound visual imaging system allows us to deliver effective results while minimizing any treatment risk.
Most patients experience zero downtime with Ultherapy treatment although some may experience slight redness, swelling, tenderness post treatment.
These side effects are usually mild and transient.
Ultherapy can lift and tighten, both the upper and lower face, neck, double chin area and brow.
The treatment can enhance the appearance of nasolabial folds (also known as laugh lines), jowls, fine lines, jawline appearance, reduce the double chin appearance and tighten loose skin around the neck.
Anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity who wishes to lift and firm their skin without having to undergo surgery is a good candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and above will benefit from Ulthera.
There are also younger patients who may choose to have the procedure done as an aesthetic maintenance.
The full effects of an Ultherapy treatment will take about 3 months to come into effect although some initial lifting may be noticed immediately post procedure.
After a consultation with our doctor to determine your suitability for the treatment, a specially formulated numbing cream will be applied to your skin to make the procedure more comfortable.
After 30 minutes, the numbing cream will be washed off and replaced with gel. This allows for effective contact between the skin and the transducer.
Ultrasound visual imaging will be used to visualise the exact layer to deposit the ultrasound energy. The duration of the treatment depends on the area that’s being treated.
A full face and neck treatment may take up to 45-60 minutes.
Our Ulthera skin tightening treatment uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen growth within the skin.
How long the effects last may vary from individual to individual. Our body’s own natural ageing process will slowly deplete the newly laid down collagen over time and this translates into visible changes from the outside.
Absolutely! The Ultherapy treatment does not affect the surface of the skin, hence you will be able to resume your regular activities immediately post procedure.
It’s a great lunch time procedure as make up can also be applied immediately after treatment and you can go back to work right away after your session, usually without anyone noticing.
Ultherapy will not be able to replace the results of a surgical facelift. However, it is a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those who are not ready to undergo surgery.
Ultherapy treatment creates natural lifted results and does not make one appear stiff or unnatural.
Typically, one treatment is sufficient. Those with a higher degree of skin laxity or those who may want to lift and firm more, may opt for more than 1 treatment.
The Ulthera Therapy treatment can be repeated every 9-12 months for maintenance.
