A Non-Invasive Skin Tightening & Lifting Procedure
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the first FDA – approved device that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy for non-invasive facelift and tightening lax skin. Using the same type of ultrasound used for pregnant women, it is safe and non-invasive. This non-surgical facelift procedure requires no needles, no cutting and therefore no downtime.
How does Ultherapy work?
When the smooth hand-piece is placed on the skin, an ultrasound imaging of the skin tissue is projected onto a screen. Upon identifying the collagen-rich SMAS tissue layer in the skin, focused ultrasonic thermal energy is precisely delivered to this target area, without harming the superficial layers of the skin. In response to the energy, there is initiation of formation of new firmer collagen. Over time, a gradual tightening occurs, resulting in a natural facelift. Improvement in the skin develops gradually following treatment, with optimal facelift results seen from 3rd month onwards
Anyone can undergo the treatment as it is safe for all skin types. This non-surgical facelift procedure is suitable for treating entire face and neck of all skin types, including:
Mild to moderate sagging of the eye brows
Lax loose skin on the cheeks
Poorly defined jaw line
Drooping corners of the mouth
Mild to moderate nasolabial folds and jowl lines
Frequently Asked Questions
Ultrasound energy is used for the Ultherapy Treatment. This is already used in medical imaging and therapeutics for more than 50 years of practices. Moreover, the safety of Ultherapy is confirmed in clinical studies. Our doctors will also highlight on the medical procedure and general safety considerations before treatment.
There is no downtime for this facelift procedure, so the patient can return to normal activities straight away.
No special care required. Some patients may experience slight flushing of the skin immediately after the treatment,
but it should disappear in a few hours.
When the ultrasonic thermal energy is delivered into the skin, it feels like a series of prickling/vibrations
beneath the skin. It is generally well-tolerated by patients. Typically, local anesthetic cream is applied to the skin
before the treatment. If required, pain medication and anti-anxiety medications can be prescribed.
