Face, Body & Skin Aesthetic – Ultherapy Review

Ultherapy is considered by many doctors to be the gold standard in non-invasive skin tightening and lifting. It uses highly focused ultrasound to deeply penetrate the skin layers and stimulate collagen production and remodelling. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and eyebrow, as well as treat lines on the décolletage area. 
Ultrasound has been used in medical technology for over 50 years and has been proven to be safe. Ultherapy produces long lasting,natural looking results with no downtime.
As we aged, the sagging of the skin and losing the elasticity is inevitable. Dr. Chiam recommended Ultherapy as he felt that it would benefit me. Having done my threadlift in Feb and June 2016, this would complement the effects. 
There had been various feedbacks on this treatment. I would say to consult a good aesthetic doctor to determine if this would work for you. 
The below photos taken were a before and a right after treatment photo. You could see a visible tightening of the skin and my eyes were lifted without botox. Overall, few years were taken off my face after the treatment. My brows were and face was visibly lifted.
I came an hour earlier to have painkillers first. According to them, about 90% would prefer to do Ultherapy under sedation as there is certain discomfort during the process. I chose the 10% option which was to keep sober so that I would be aware of what was done to my face.
This was a clean, no makeup face except for false lashes before the start of the treatment. I was quite happy with the RF face contour and brightening light laser that I did a week back which improved my face texture and brighten my skin even without any makeup.

Numbing cream was left for 20 mins on my face before Dr. Chiam came in and drew some markings on my face using the numbing cream. There was ultrasound gel applied on the face and reapplied at intervals.

Dr. Chiam further explained that this screen aid in the precision when administering the shots using the visual skin ultrasound.

There was a programmed number of shots that were required for each area. 3 rounds were required and the focus were on the different layers of the skin.

Dr. Chiam was busy at monitor the machine while I was also curious about the whole process and asking questions.

It was normal to have a bit of swollen on the face. It will last about 3 to 7 days depending on individuals. This was how I look while the nurse helped to remove the cream off my face. There was a little redness that would go off in a few hours. The process took about an hour. I would recommend sedation if you have a low pain threshold. I was holding on to a stress ball provided as the shots became more unbearable as it goes nearer to the area with more bones like the forehead and below the chin.

Ultherapy costs $3,500 and if you need sedation would be another $1,500. I was able to continue with my daily activities after the treatment so you do not have to worry about any downtime at all.  So if you are looking for non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any downtime, then Ultherapy is your answer.

It will lasts for about 12 to 18 months depending on individual.

However, I would still advise you to speak to Dr. Chiam first before proceeding. He is a very professional doctor and the best person to advise on what is the best treatment for you.
