The ultimate non-invasive aesthetic treatment by a doctor
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive high intensity focused ultrasound that will tighten facial contour, slim the face, bring back firmer and tightened skin and improve lines on the face, chest and arms.
With the DeepSEE technology, ultrasound energy will be directed precisely on the fascia and dermal layer, resulting in tightening and collagen stimulation, creating the best and most natural-looking results that will continue to improve with time. The depth and precision are unmatched by other HIFU machines. With just one treatment, the effect can last from one to two years. There is no downtime and you can resume your daily activity right after the procedure.
What can I expect in my treatment?
Your doctor will perform an assessment to identify the target areas for treatment. Pre-treatment photos will then be taken. Treatment areas will be cleaned to remove any oil or make-up residue. An anaesthetic cream will be applied to the treatment areas and be left on for 20-30 minutes. You may also choose to take additional pain medications to further improve pain control which will be provided by our nurse.
During treatment, the ultherapy device is placed against the skin over a layer of ultrasound gel and ultrasound energy is then delivered to the targeted areas. You might experience quick, intermittent feelings of heat and tingling during treatment. At the end of the procedure, the applicator is removed and post-treatment photos will be taken.
A single procedure can last up to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment. Ultherapy treatment on the chest takes about 30 minutes compared to the face and neck areas which can take 60 to 90 minutes
What are the potential complications?
Treatment areas may exhibit redness immediately after therapy, but this typically resolves within a few hours. Mild swelling may also occur and will usually resolve within a few days. The overlying skin will be dry for about a week after treatment and proper moisturising cream is recommended. Some people may experience mild bruising on the treatment areas and some may rarely have slight discomfort for over a few months. What is the recovery time?
There is usually no downtime associated with Ultherapy. Regular activities such as work, exercise, or socializing can be resumed immediately after treatment.
You can start noticing the first results of Ultherapy within a few days, depending on your body’s ability to produce new collagen. Improvement typically continues for up to three months. The results will last as long as your body continues to produce new collagen and until the natural ageing process takes over again. Based on your skin’s response to Ultherapy, you can decide if additional sessions are necessary.
