Ultherapy – Non-Invasive Skin Lifting & Tightening

May 18, 2016

The Non-Invasive Face Lift

The New Generation Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a safe and effective, non-surgical face lifting procedure that uses proven ultrasound energy penetrating deep into the skin’s layers causing collagen production which results to visible skin tightening over time.

Ultherapy in Singapore is the only US FDA-cleared non-invasive lifting procedure that uses time-tested focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow, to your face and jawline, to your chest.

The safety and effectiveness of Ultherapy has been established worldwide through clinical studies as well as 680,000 procedures performed internationally. Ultherapy is US FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the decollete.

Ultherapy has also received the European CE mark for non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the upper face, lower face, neck and decollete.

Just a Single Treatment

With just one treatment, Ultherapy® helps counteract the aging effects caused by time, gravity and sun exposure resulting to firmer and more youthful skin.

The treatment takes between 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area. As an effective treatment, Ulthera can be slightly uncomfortable for some patients which we manage through topical anaesthesia.

And because Ultherapy® is non-invasive, there are no special preparations or skincare regimens needed before the procedure. This is also a safe and effective alternative for those individuals who are not ready for surgery and it can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

How It Works

Ulthera (the system) stimulates collagen production by delivering focused and precise ultrasound energy to the foundational layer of the skin typically addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.

Ulthera bypasses the skin’s surface to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.

Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real and significant results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smoothen skin on the chest.

The Ulthera-Exilis Combination: ‘Evidence-based Treatments’ for Collagen-building

At Cutis Medical Laser Clinics, we combined Ulthera with BTL Exilis Elite which are the two well known evidenced-based treatments for collagen-building that provides significant skin tightening benefits resulting to an improvement in the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

Similar to Ulthera®, BTL Exilis is also a non-invasive procedure that also works at the deeper layers of the skin. Exilis is a US FDA cleared non-surgical procedure that uses focused, continuous monopolar radio-frequency RF) that stimulate collagen, contours tissue, tightens skin, and improves the skin’s appearance without discomfort and downtime.

The RF energy from Exilis safely heats up the skin, causing collagen support tissues to remodel, tighten and firm. It has quickly established itself as a safe and effective treatment for reducing wrinkles and improving skin laxity of the face, neck as well as other parts of the body, ideal for any patients who prefer a non-surgical solution.

The Ulthera and Exilis Combination gives synergistic collagen building results because they stimulate the fibroblasts with different mechanisms. Furthermore, the Ulthera-Exilis Combination gives assurance to our patients that they will receive evidence-based treatments of skin tightening with visible and proven results.

Each procedure will be delivered in optimal areas where they will be the most beneficial, resulting in targeted collagen growth where it matters most and creating that natural lifting effect.

We would like to invite you for a consultation to know if Ultherapy is the suitable treatment for your skin concerns.
