What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive FDA-approved ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin, without any downtime. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift the skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrows, as well as smooth out lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
How Does It Work?
Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin non-surgically, to treat depths of up to 4.5mm under the skin. It has been scientifically proven that ultrasound energy can stimulate collagen production in the skin’s foundation. This results in a clinically significant lift of tissue over time as new collagen works to lift and tighten the skin under the chin, on the eyebrow as well as smooth skin on the chest and neck. In general, ultherapy helps in reducing skin wrinkles.
What’s unique about Ultherapy is the use of traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows doctors to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
It is a comfortable procedure. You may feel a warm prickly sensation beneath the skin when the ultrasound energy is being delivered into the targeted tissue, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. Dr Karen Soh and her team of professionals will take measures to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
Most patients require only one treatment, but it will also depend on the degree of skin laxity, as well as the individual’s biological response to ultrasound energy and collagen-building process. Results after a single session can last up to a year. As skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.
Safety & Side Effects
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s an alternative for those who are looking for a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment used for skin tightening. Ultherapy has been used safely in over 1 million treatments worldwide. Ultherapy has also received the European CE mark for non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the upper face, lower face, neck and décolletage.
*Treatment is conducted by a certified doctor.
