Ulthera Press Release

The Alternative To Facelift Without Surgery

Singapore, March 2013 - Ulthera has made headlines by becoming the first FDA approved non-invasive skin lift procedure that now targets the brow, neck and under the chin areas. This is the second lift indication that the system has received. Ulthera was first cleared as a facial treatment with a specific indication for non-invasive eyebrow lift back in 2009. Ulthera aims to promote the bodyʼs natural healing process by stimulating new collagen growth that is created by the ultrasound waves that contract upon reaching the cells underneath our skin. Ultrasound treatments are done by dermatologists using a hand held applicator that lifts and tightens facial skin and muscle with no downtime. The procedure that usually last for 45-60 minutes per session can be done in-office. Patients can also expect to see a more chiseled and sculpted face after the treatment. “Ultheraʼs focused-ultrasound energy can also be used to tighten the connective tissue around the fat pads. When the connective tissues around the fat pads shrink, the fat pads also shrink. This became an ideal non-invasive and non-surgical treatment for chubby and fat faces. Gradually over the years, it has almost completely replaced liposuction for the face and neck,” said Dr David Loh, one of the pioneer dermatologists that use Ultherapy in Singapore. Patients can expect a slight tingling sensation during the session and tenderness to the skin afterwards. It usually take a full month before patients get to see the full benefits of the treatment and this will usually last for three to six months depending on the individual. "Ulthera is a safe and non-invasive procedure that has produced reliable results. It can also be used as a facial sculpting tool for younger patients," added Dr Loh. Priced at $1500 onwards to about $7000 for a full-face treatment, many clinics in Singapore are already adopting this new aesthetical treatment. This treatment is a popular alternative to the regular surgery, as many patients may not prefer to go under the knife just yet.
