Ultherapy is a sophisticated technology designed to tighten and lift various facial regions efficiently, addressing skin laxity and sagging with enduring outcomes.
What sets Ultherapy apart from other techniques is its ability to bypass the skin's surface while delivering targeted ultrasound energy to deep skin layers, including the dermis and the SMAS layer. This process prompts the underlying tissue to contract and tighten while stimulating the production of new collagen fibres.
As a non-invasive procedure approved by US FDA, Ultherapy necessitates no downtime, making it a convenient and effective option for patients.
It is an excellent anti-ageing treatment that reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
It can plump areas of the face where volume has been lost.
It lifts the face for a more youthful appearance.
It adds a sharp definition to the lower face and jawline.
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort while delivering ultrasound energy, but this is temporary and varies based on individual comfort thresholds.
The results of Ultherapy treatment can last for more than a year as it stimulates the production of fresh collagen. However, the ageing process varies for each individual and maintenance treatments in the future may be required to sustain the effects.
Avoid excessive sun exposure a couple of weeks before the treatment to prevent sunburn that can tender the skin.
Moisturise the skin properly a week before the treatment.
Avoid using retinoids, salicylic acid or glycolic acid in the treatment area 3 days before the treatment.
Do not apply any makeup or lotions on the treatment area on the day of the treatment.
Apply sunscreen if there is sun exposure immediately after the treatment.
Avoid taking hot baths until the redness on the treated area subsides.
Refrain from vigorous exercise or any activities that can make you perspire for a few days.
You can see the results right after the treatment, and they gradually improve over the next 3-6 months.
You may experience temporary redness and swelling after the treatment, which can last for 1-2 days. You don't need to take a long time to recover because it's a non-surgical procedure. You can get back to your normal activities right away.
