Ultherapy®

Ulthera Singapore – Non Surgical Face Lift

 

Non-surgical ultrasound to tighten, firm and lift the face and neck.

 

 

What is Ultherapy®?

 

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tone loose skin without any downtime. Effective, quick and with no healing time required, this is the preferred treatment for the busy individual to achieve firmer, tighter and lifted skin.
 

How does Ultherapy® work?

 

Ultherapy® delivers focused ultrasound (a form of heat energy) below the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural renewal of existing collagen and creation of new collagen. Ultherapy® targets the deep tissues - the same tissues that are addressed in a surgical facelift - without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This results in a toning and visible lifting of the skin over time.

 

How is Ultherapy® different from lasers?

 
Lasers typically address issues in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). Ultherapy® addresses the deep skin layer and the foundational layer (also called the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) that lifts and lends support to the skin.
 

Can Ultherapy® replace a face lift?

 

Ultherapy® is an "uplift" not a "facelift." While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a good option for those not ready for a facelift or those seeking a safe and effective non-surgical lifting treatment.

 

How do I know if Ultherapy® is the right treatment for me?

 

A good candidate for Ultherapy® is someone with mild to moderate loose skin e.g. the jawline is starting to loosen, jowls are appearing, or the brow is beginning to droop, and the skin is generally feeling less firm. Typically, those in their thirties begin to show mild laxity.

 

What kind of results can I expect from Ultherapy®?

 

By reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy® will lift the brow, open up the eyes, tighten the jawline, and give a more refreshed look overall.

Clients also report firmer and more toned skin in other areas of the face and neck. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many who desire some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically.

 

What happens during an Ultherapy® treatment?

 

First the skin is thoroughly cleansed. Then anaesthesia cream is applied. Once ready, the ultrasound applicator is applied to the pre-marked areas of the face and neck, this gently heats up the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Finally, a Gentlewaves®LED treatment to improve the skin's healing process finishes the treatment.
 

How long does each treatment last?

 

A full face-and-neck treatment takes 45-60 minutes, and a partial face treatment can take around 30-minutes—neither with any downtime.
 

Is Ultherapy® painful?

 

Although pain thresholds vary with each individual, expect to feel tolerable discomfort (akin to an electrical tingling) while the energy is being delivered. This is temporary and can be well-managed with topical anaesthesia. Please be assured that the IYAC team is committed to ensuring that your Ultherapy® experience is as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.

 

Are there any side effects? What can I expect after an Ultherapy® treatment?

 

After an Ultherapy® treatment, there is rarely any visible effect beyond mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. Since there is no wound or injury to the skin, makeup can be applied straight away. Clients can immediately resume their regular daily activities. No specific care is needed after treatment, although you may be asked to avoid sun and some skin products for a period of time after the treatment.

 

Ultherapy® treatments are simple and straightforward. Expect lifting and toning over the next 2-3 months, as tired collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a single treatment.

 

How do I prepare my skin for Ultherapy® treatments?

 

Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before the treatment. Avoid the use of Retin A or other irritating skin products for three days prior to the treatment.

 

How many treatments will I need?

 

Most individuals only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on the degree of skin laxity they have).
