Common Questions and Answers about Ultherapy
Q: What makes it different from other skin-tightening procedures?
A: Ultherapy uses sound energy, as different from the light and heat used by almost all other procedures in tackling the problem of weak collagen. Yes, you heard it right; it uses Ultrasound to reach skin depths that other procedures cannot get to. As soon as the sound energy reaches the very foundations of the skin, it helps the collagen to regenerate right from the tissues. The effect is also better because as soon as the tissues heal, new collagen is formed and the skin looks brand new over a three months period.
Q: I know that it does not involve any incision on my skin, but is it still a painful process?
A: Your anxiety is understandable. It is true that you may feel a mild sensation on your skin, but immediately the sound energy gets to the deepest layer of your skin, you are completely fine. The whole process can take as little as 7 minutes. Since each one’s tolerance level is different, the mild sensation is not common to everyone.
Q: Can I trust the process?
A: Yes, it is not just practiced in Singapore but in some 60 other countries. So far, over a million patients have been treated successfully without any case of damaged skin. In the medical industry, the use of ultrasound has spanned some five decades.
Q: How exactly does Ultherapy improve the skin?
A: It helps the collagen in your skin regenerate. The collagen is responsible for one-third of the protein synthesized in your body. It is also responsible for the tenacity or firmness of the skin, thus giving humans that youthful look and freshness. As humans grow older, the collagen becomes weak and breaks down. The skin, in turn, loses its strength and firmness. That becomes evident as saggy skin either of the face, breasts, stomach, arms or laps. Ultherapy applies sound energy under the skin to start new production of collagen. The result is a toned and firm skin.
Q: What are the side effects?
A: There may be redness of the skin which may be visible but only for a couple of hours after the procedure.
