As you grow older, your skin tends to lose its natural glow. You start to notice wrinkles and sagging. And you probably are wondering how you can restore that youthful-looking skin.
If you’re not comfortable with going under the knife, is there a cosmetic treatment that you can consider? In Singapore, you may look into Ultherapy treatment.
Ultherapy is popular as it’s safe and FDA-approved. It tightens, tones, and lifts sagging skin without the need for incisions. It effectively improves the appearance of the skin on your cheeks, neck and even the eye bag area.
It also does have a downtime – you can get back to your daily routine after receiving the treatment. The procedure is also performed with high accuracy, thanks to its advanced ultrasound imaging system.
How Ultherapy Works
The Ultherapy device targets the layer under the skin called subcutaneous musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), which is responsible for producing collagen.
As we age, the amount of collagen in this layer decreases. With Ultherapy, it can produce new collagen without the need for surgical cuts.
The device uses precise ultrasound energy that delivers a thermal effect under the skin. The process of producing new collagen can take around 90 days, but the tightening in the skin continues even after that period.
You may notice redness, tenderness or swelling after the procedure, but these are normal and should subside within a few hours. You do not have to take a day off from work and the procedure also does not leave wounds or cuts on your skin.
You can even schedule your appointment during lunch and head back to work afterward!
Is Ultherapy Safe?
Ultherapy is proven safe to lift and tighten the skin without surgery. It has a real-time visualization that helps your doctor avoid big blood vessels, which then prevents bruising.
The visualisation is done before the procedure to ensure that the ultrasound energy is delivered at the right depth. Your doctor will also orient you on safety protocols before, during, and after your treatment.
You may find similar systems in salons, but it is wiser to go to a Certified Treatment Provider.
You can take comfort in knowing that you’re working with a medical professional and that the device they’re using is safe and efficient.
How Long Does it Take to See Results?
You may see an instant lift on your face after your treatment. Once the swelling goes down, you will notice a tighter skin as collagen production is further stimulated.
Reduced fine lines, less sagginess, and tighter skin – all these await you after your Ultherapy treatment. Hang on and after 3 months, you’ll see the full results. Your skin needs time to produce fresh, new collagen. But with just one session, you’ll be able to see lasting results.
Ultherapy is ideal for patients who are not comfortable with or are not fit for a surgical cosmetic procedure. There are other options available for you at trusted aesthetic centers, and your doctor will be able to recommend which one is most appropriate for you.
Start with an initial consultation so you can compare treatment providers and the rates for their services. Be on your way to a younger-looking skin!
