Our skin inevitably shows signs of ageing through wrinkles, fine lines, and a gradual loss of elasticity and firmness. This natural ageing process is influenced by genetics, lifestyle, and environmental exposures.

Visible signs of ageing can affect one’s confidence and self-perception. In response to the desire to maintain a youthful appearance, medical and cosmetic advancements develop treatments aimed at reversing these signs.

Among these is Ultherapy, a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound waves to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. This targets the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and achieve long-lasting, visible results in skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Advantage of Ultherapy in Singapore

Ultherapy - skin tightening

Ultherapy stands out as a revolutionary treatment in Singapore’s climate by offering benefits that directly counter the environmental stresses faced by the skin.

Combat Sun Damage

Ultherapy effectively targets the deeper skin layers, promotes collagen production to reduce fine lines, sagging skin and improves overall skin elasticity.

By tightening and lifting loose skin, Ultherapy offers a solution to achieve a more defined facial contour and a sharper jawline.

Subtle Yet Noticeable Results

Contrary to the drastic results of cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy provides a natural-looking improvement. It is able to deliver subtle but noticeable results that complement Asian features without altering the fundamental essence of one’s appearance.

Advantage of Ultherapy in Singapore

Ultherapy treatment at Lux Medical Aesthetic Clinic in Singapore starts with a consultation to understand the patient’s skin concerns and to tailor the treatment to their specific needs. If Ultherapy is deemed suitable for the patient, the medical procedure will follow.


During the consultation phase at Lux Medical Aesthetic Clinic, an in-depth analysis of the patient’s skin condition and a discussion of their aesthetic goals are conducted. The doctor will assess the patient’s skin type, level of skin laxity and any underlying medical conditions that may affect the treatment.

Who is suitable to undergo this treatment? Anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity who wants a lift and firm skin without undergoing surgery. Those in their 30s and above will benefit from this procedure. However, younger patients may also choose Ultherapy to prevent signs of ageing and maintain youthful skin.

Prospective patients will learn about how Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production beneath the skin, leading to a non-invasive lifting and tightening effect. The doctor will outline what the procedure involves, its duration, the sensation experienced during treatment, and what to expect in results and recovery time. This session is an opportunity for patients to discuss their concerns or questions so that they can be fully informed and comfortable with the procedure before proceeding.

How many treatments will I need? One treatment session is sufficient to achieve significant results. However, patients with high or moderate skin laxity and those who want to lift and firm more may choose more than one treatment session. Treatments can be done after every nine to twelve months to maintain the results.

During the Ultherapy Treatment

After determining suitability for the Ultherapy treatment, the patient’s skin is first cleansed, and a numbing cream will be applied for 20-30 minutes to ensure the procedure is comfortable.

The numbing cream will then be washed off and replaced with a special ultrasound gel. The Ultherapy device is placed against the treated area’s skin, and there will be precise ultrasound visualisation of the layers of skin tissue through ultrasound imaging. This ensures precise energy delivery to where it is most beneficial.

The Ultherapy transducers come with different depths. For the face area, there are usually 3 different depths used. Mainly the 4.5mm, 3.0mm, 1.5mm. Different depths can be used in different areas depending on skin concerns. The number of shots, intensity of each shot, and depth used will be customised according to each patient’s skin  and their concerns.

What happens during treatment sessions? The device emits micro-focused ultrasound energy to the deeper layers of the skin, the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). These ultrasound waves stimulate natural collagen production, which is a key component in lifting, toning, and tightening the skin.

Patients might experience sensations of heat and tingling during the application of ultrasound energy; these indicate that the collagen-building process has been initiated. The whole procedure lasts about 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the individual skin-tightening treatment plan.


After the Ultherapy Treatment

The beauty of Ultherapy is its non-invasive nature, which contrasts sharply with surgical facelifts, offering a significant advantage through its minimal recovery period. If patients experience slight swelling or redness, these are temporary and should subside within a few hours after the procedure.

Regular follow-ups and maintenance treatments every 9-12 months can help to optimise the results and longevity of the ultherapy treatment.

Can I resume my daily activities right after the treatment? Yes. Ultherapy doesn’t affect the skin’s surface, allowing you to resume your regular activities immediately post-procedure.

Are there any side effects? Most patients experience no downtime. However, it’s not uncommon for treated areas to exhibit slight swelling and redness.

Will I see results immediately? You may notice lifting right after the procedure, but the full effects take three to six months to appear. This is the time when your body produces new collagen and elastin for your skin to appear more youthful and firmer.

How long will the effects of the therapy last? Effects vary on individuals and their skin ageing process. The newly laid down collagen slowly depletes via the natural skin ageing process over time, typically in 1-2 years.
