Ulthera: The Next Generation of the Non- Surgical Facelift?

“The Ulthera™ System has been used only in Europe and USA till today. Now, it is finally available in Singapore.”
The principle for a non- surgical facelift is straightfoward enough: using energy waves to induce the wound healing process and stimulate collagen in the deep layers of the skin.
However, to date, there no aesthetic modality can achieve this goal satisfactorily and consistently. Modalities such as Infrared waves (e.g. Titan) actually induce more skin tightening, rather than a facelift as they do not have enough penetration.
Enter Ultherapy™ 
Ultherapy™ utilises focused ultrasound to penetrate the skin deeper and more accurately than ever possible reaching depths even beyond the skin, into the muscular layer (the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, or SMAS) This exciting technology actually came about when scientists were researching using ultrasound to kill tumour cells. They then started thinking about aesthetics use, i.e. focused ultrasound for skin tighening, and thus, the Ulthera™ System was born. Currently, it is undergoing the final stages of FDA approval.
Results from both the company and our own prelimary treatments have been mouth watering so far, surpassing other non surgical lifting methods. Needless to say, I love performing the treatment on my patients. 

Once in awhile, an exciting new treatment appears which will change the way we practice. This may very well be one of them.
