One of the most common issues that people face as they age is sagging skin. It is a condition that can occur as we age, due to a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. This can cause the skin to become loose and saggy.
While there are a number of surgical options available to correct this problem, there are also some non-surgical options such as Ultherapy® that can help to improve the appearance of your skin.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen production slows down. This can cause the skin to sag, especially in areas where there is less supportive tissue, such as the face, neck, breasts, and upper arms. There are several reasons why this happens:
Sun damage: One of the most significant factors in skin ageing. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can damage the collagen and elastin in the skin, causing it to become thinner, less elastic, and more wrinkled.
Smoking: Smoking also accelerates skin ageing. The chemicals in tobacco smoke damage the collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, making it less elastic and more prone to wrinkling.
Age: As we age, our skin naturally becomes less elastic and more likely to sag. This is due to a decrease in collagen production and the effects of gravity.
Ultherapy® is used worldwide to counteract the effects of gravity on the skin non surgically.
Ultherapy® is a brand of a HIFU machine that is used to treat signs of ageing and skin laxity. It is a FDA-approved HIFU machine that lifts and tightens face and neck without surgical risks.
Ultherapy uses nonsurgical ultrasound technology to delivered heat energy through the skin at the same depth that surgical facelifts address BUT without injuring the superficial skin.
The process triggers body’s natural response to undergo repair and rebuild – kick starting collagen and elastin production to naturally lifts and tightens skin.
Collagen is a protein that provides structure and support to the skin. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. By stimulating the production of collagen, Ultherapy can help to improve the appearance of the skin.
Ultherapy uses the DeepSEE technology, a visual aid to visualise the layer of skin that is targeted at for precise energy delivery.
After identifying the specific treatment areas, an ultrasound gel will be applied for the probe to easily glide on the treatment area.
You may return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should subside within 24 hours. Some may experience slight swelling, tingling, or mild tenderness to the touch that are temporary.
Progressive improvement of the result is visible in the next 3 months, depending on your body’s ability to produce new collagen.
The face and neck, which are frequently the first and worst-affected parts of the body when it comes to ageing, are the primary targets of ultherapy treatment for cosmetic skin issues.
Most frequently, Ultherapy is applied to treat lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin in places like:

Suitable for mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look less firm or tight, such as lowered brow, loose skin on the neck, sagging under chin, lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy® is a great alternative for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy is an extremely safe and effective alternative to more invasive conventional treatments for face lifting and skin tightening. The treatment does not use surgical techniques, needles, injections, or abrasive exfoliants to help you achieve a more youthful appearance.
After the treatment, there can be a small amount of redness, but it usually goes away within a few hours. Some patients may experience moderate and transient swelling, tingling, or discomfort to the touch.
Ultherapy® results in a gradual, natural looking lift, leaving patients looking refreshed, but will not have as drastic results as a surgical facelift.
Results will vary with every individual, most patients notice immediate subtle effects right after the procedure. Optimal results is visible in the next 2 – 3 months and the results from Ultherapy® generally last two years.
Visible results can already be seen on the first session. However, in order to see the full effect, it is advisable to wait 2 – 3 months. For longer-lasting results, maintenance treatments is required, which will be recommended by doctors. Usually once yearly.
Depending on the severity of your skin condition, a thorough assessment and diagnosis of your condition is required for our accredited doctors to advise on the number of sessions required.
