Ultherapy

Q: At a family gathering last weekend, my 3-year old niece candidly pointed out that my face was as round as the Chinese pork bun we were eating! I was caught off-guard and began thinking whether my business partners and subordinates thought the same whenever I would invite them out to eat Chinese food for our lunch meetings. Do you have any recommendations to lessen the roundness of my face?

A: Yes. One of your options is to go for Ultherapy, a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to tighten loose skin on the face, neck or chest. It uses an FDA-approved ultrasound device to reach the deep layers of the skin without physically penetrating the skin’s surface, stimulating the production of collagen that would enable the skin to naturally regain its elasticity and achieve a more toned look.

It can be used for facial contouring, such as in your case, when you want to achieve a less round face. It can also tighten skin to address mild to moderate skin looseness caused by old age, and to remove the appearance of a double chin.


Q: It sounds like facelift to me. How different is it?

A: Through ultrasound imaging, the device allows the doctor to see the deep areas in the skin that are to be treated. At the same time that it shows such image, the device also deposits small amounts of ultrasound energy to said areas. Thus, it gives the effect of a subtle facelift without any need for surgery or any minimally-invasive procedure, such as facelifts done through filler injection.


Q: Can I avail of this treatment without disrupting my busy schedule?

A: Absolutely. The procedure normally takes around 30-60 minutes to complete, with no special preparation or post-treatment measures required. Thus, you can expect no downtime to hinder your activities, although mild redness and/or swelling are possible but normal after-effects that will go away within a few hours.


Q: When can I start seeing results?

A: Minimal results may be seen immediately after the procedure, but it is only through 2-3 months that you will see the real magic of Ultherapy. Over this period, collagen production will be stimulated progressively, allowing the treated skin to regain its youthful and more toned look. As collagen continues to be produced, improvements can further be observed to appear even 6 months from the treatment.


Q: Will these effects last for long?

A: For a fairly long period, yes. Normally, the freshly produced collagen would last even after one year, but as you age, you can get follow-up treatments to address the natural effects of aging on your skin.
