What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only no downtime, non-invasive skin lifting and tightening treatment approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It uses micro-focused ultrasound to trigger the body’s natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.
Our skin’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting — or shifting — of the skin back into its more youthful position and form-fitting shape.
Benefits of Ultherapy
The Ulthera device is highly versatile and is effective for lifting, contouring, and shaping the face.
1. Lift droopy eyelids
2. Smoothen wrinkles
3. Reduce the appearance of eye bags and dark eye circles
4. Tighten sagging skin on the cheeks, neck, and eye areas
5. Enhance and sharpen certain facial features and the overall shape of the face
Is Ultherapy effective?
Ultherapy can be applied with precision so doctors can tighten soft tissue and skin with pinpoint accuracy. Micro-focused ultrasound energy is directed 1.5mm, 3.0mm, and 4.5mm underneath the skin without disrupting the surface. Hence it can target and treat the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), a layer of fibrous tissue beneath the surface that helps give the face its shape. The body’s regenerative response is then triggered, rejuvenating collagen and resulting in a tighter, firmer appearance.
What makes Ultherapy different from other facelifting treatments in Singapore is its visualiser with real-time imaging. The visualiser allows doctors to see different anatomical layers of the skin that are being treated and know exactly where to deliver the micro-focused ultrasound energy to yield the most benefits for your skin, and avoid bones, nerves and blood vessels to reduce your discomfort.
Halley Medical Aesthetics is a medical clinic that carries the full range of Ultherapy transducers in Singapore. This ensures that the areas of the face that are more difficult to reach with the typical larger transducers can also be treated properly without compromise.
800-line Ultherapy with Halley Medical Aesthetics
With the most updated Ultherapy treatment protocol in Singapore, 800 lines or ‘shots’ of micro-focused ultrasound energy is given during full face and upper-neck Ultherapy treatment instead of the previous protocol of 500 lines. By delivering a higher density of pulses, we can expect an even more intense tightening and more volumising lift of the treated area.
To ensure that you receive the correct number of Ultherapy lines for optimal skin lifting and firming, all Ultherapy patients at Halley Medical Aesthetics will receive a personalised Ultherapy patient record after their treatment. You will know exactly how many Ultherapy lines you received on each treated area.
Who is suitable for Ultherapy?
As the signs of ageing start setting in from our 20s, it is never too early to start maintaining good skin. In our 30s and beyond, bone resorption kicks in, where bone tissue is absorbed by the body. With the bone mass that props up our flesh and skin shrinking, facial drooping sets in. Photo-ageing also contributes to the wrinkles, folds, and loose skin that start to show on our faces in the jowls, brow, and undereye areas.
Where can Ultherapy be used?
• Eye bags and undereye area
What to expect during Ultherapy treatment?
Your doctor will first assess your skin thoroughly to check if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. There is no need for any special preparation pre-treatment, but you can opt for numbing cream and oral medications to enhance your comfort level during the Ultherapy treatment.
After cleansing your skin, your doctor will plan the Ultherapy treatment by marking out the treatment areas on your skin before applying the ultrasound gel. With the real-time imaging visualiser, your doctor is able to treat different areas on your skin with different transducers to ensure that the ultrasound energy reaches the correct depth for optimal results. The treatment is highly customised since every one of us is unique. With Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging, your doctor can see and plan the best course of treatment for you.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive, no-downtime facelifting treatment and therefore, you can return to your daily tasks immediately after that. No special post-treatment care is required. Some of us may experience a little flushing, slight swelling, or tenderness, but they are temporary and will go away quickly.
How long do Ultherapy results last?
Ultherapy stimulates the production of our collagen and how long the results can last varies from one to another. The majority of our patients sees a firming and lifting effect over a period of three months, and it can last for around a year, or even longer, depending on the individual.
It is recommended that patients have an Ultherapy treatment done once a year for maintenance.
