Ultherapy

As we reach our 20’s, collagen production starts to decline, with our bodies producing 1% less collagen each year thereafter. In turn, this leads to a decrease in skin laxity, and eventually, we experience visibly saggier skin, wrinkles and fine lines.

Saggy skin is often associated with ageing, but this doesn’t have to be the case. There are various treatments available that help reverse signs of ageing by encouraging the natural formation of collagen and elastin. Introducing: Ultherapy.

Cambridge Medical Group is one of the few clinics in Singapore authorised to perform authentic Ultherapy treatments.


The ageing process



What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive medical-grade treatment that helps lift the face, tighten loose skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles using ultrasound technology.

Benefits:

  • Non-invasive alternative to facelifts
  • Tightens sagging skin
  • Contours the jawline
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tones the face

How does Ultherapy work?

Ultherapy’s technology is based on the idea of neocollagenesis, which is a process that occurs in the human body as a natural part of wound repair.

Without breaking the surface of the skin, Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound waves to treat skin laxity by delivering targeted heat to deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production to promote gradual tightening.

Ultherapy can target not only the dermis (upper layer of the skin), but also the deeper superficial muscular aponeurotic (SMAS) layer of the skin, which is where skin laxity begins. This allows it to tighten even the fibromuscular tissue encasing the muscles of the face/body, effectively lifting the saggy skin.

The new collagen and elastin will strengthen the structure of your skin for a refreshed, and well-sculpted appearance.


How long does Ultherapy last?

The effects of Ultherapy are generally long-lasting and can last between 1-2 years.

What areas can Ultherapy treat?

Typically, Ultherapy is used in areas that tend to have more wrinkles or sag over time, such as:

  • Around the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Mouth
  • Forehead

Ultherapy is also effective in treating other areas in the body such as:

  • Dècolettage
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

What to expect during an Ultherapy procedure

A topical anaesthetic is first applied to the target areas to ensure a comfortable and pain-free procedure.

Your aesthetic doctor will then pass a handheld device (ultrasound transducer) across the target areas. This device emits ultrasound waves into the skin at precise amounts and depths, controlled by your doctor. An ultrasound imaging system allows your aesthetic doctor to analyse your skin and discern which areas require what amount and at which depths to administer the ultrasound energy.

During the procedure, you may feel mild heat and a tingling sensation just below your skin’s surface, but this is completely normal.

The treatment session lasts for about 30 to 90 minutes.


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I avoid after Ultherapy?

At least 3 days after the treatment, avoid harsh scrubs and skincare products containing ingredients with vitamin A compounds, such as Retin-A and retinoids. Other exfoliating products and bleaching creams should also be avoided. Opt for a creamy facial cleanser and very light moisturiser instead.
Try to avoid prolonged sun-exposure and other treatments that may cause any inflammation on the skin, such as laser procedures and other radiofrequency treatments.

Are there any side effects to Ultherapy?

Right after the treatment, your skin may appear slightly reddened for a few hours. However, there is generally minimal to no downtime after an Ultherapy procedure, and you can return to your daily routine after.

How long until I see Ultherapy results?

Results for Ultherapy develop over time as the neocollagenesis process happens. Most patients see improvements after 2-3 months, with skin improvements continuing up to 6 months after treatment.

What is the ideal age for Ultherapy?

There is no “right age” for Ultherapy, but it is most recommended for those who still have a moderate amount of elasticity in their skin. These are usually patients around the ages of 30-50 years old.

How many Ultherapy sessions should I go for?

The number of sessions required is ultimately dependent on each patient’s skin condition and desired outcome. How your body responds to ultrasound and the collagen-building process are also determining factors.
We recommend Ultherapy to be done once a year. But if required, your doctor may advise you to repeat the procedure after 6 months.

Is Ultherapy FDA-approved?

Yes, Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, medical-grade treatment. It is the only ultrasound energy-based treatment for lifting that is approved by FDA.
