Ulthera Singapore – Non Surgical Face Lift

 

Ultherapy for Eyes

 

 

What is Ultherapy®?

 

Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tone loose skin. It is the preferred treatment for the busy individual to achieve firmer, tighter skin around the eyes.
 

How does Ultherapy® work?

 

To understand how Ultherapy works, you must first understand the role collagen plays in the skin. Collagen is a tough, connective protein that provides the skin with strength, resiliency and
elasticity. As we age, our skin produces less and less collagen causing skin to lose volume and moisture. Skin starts to thin, which especially shows around the eyes, as this is some of the thinnest skin on the entire body to begin with.

 

Ultherapy delivers High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (a form of heat energy) into the skin to stimulate the body to produce collagen. Ultherapy targets collagen in 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.

 

 

What areas of the eye can be treated?

 
Ultherapy can tighten and lift the areas under and above the eyebrows.
 

How do I know if I’m a good candidate?

 

Good candidates have mild to moderate skin laxity around the eyes or early signs of one or both eyebrows beginning to sag. Mild skin laxity typically starts when people reach their 30s.

 

Is there any downtime?

 

Ultherapy penetrates the deep layers of the skin while leaving the epidermis completely unharmed. It works sub-dermally (under the skin) so there is no resulting downtime or disruption to your social schedule. Makeup can be applied straight away.

 

What results can I expect?

 

By reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy lifts the skin, open up the eyes and provides a fresher overall look. Results are visible two to three months after a treatment when collagen has had time to rebuild and regenerate itself. As the collagen-building process continues, further improvements appear up to six months following a single treatment. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the effect lasts depends on you and the rate at which your body produces and maintains collagen.

 

Can Ultherapy replace a face lift?

 

Ultherapy is an "uplift", not a "facelift." While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is an alternative for those who are not ready or who do not desire surgery for mental, financial or logistical reasons.
 

What happens during an Ultherapy treatment?

 

The skin is thoroughly cleansed, and anesthesic cream is applied. The ultrasound applicator is applied to pre-marked areas of the face and neck. At the treatment’s conclusion, a Gentlewaves LED treatment is provided to improve the healing process. The actual treatment takes around 30 minutes.
 

Is it painful?

 

Although pain thresholds vary from person to person, expect to feel tolerable discomfort (akin to electrical tingling) while the energy is being delivered. This is temporary and well managed with topical anesthesia. The IYAC team is committed to providing you with an experience that is as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.

 

How many treatments will I need?

 

Most individuals need one treatment. Depending on the degree of skin laxity, your body’s response to ultrasound energy and the skin’s ability to rebuild and maintain collagen, some may benefit from two or more treatments.
