Ulthera
Ulthera
Indications

1. cheek sagging
2. Nasolabial folds / cheek meat / ptosis of labial angle
3. mandible lines flaccid
4. ptosis of eyebrow / Ptosis
5. Chest wrinkles
6. Neck flaccid

Action Principle

Commonly known as “Ultherapy”, it uses High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to reach the SMAS layer of the traditional surgical skin lift. It has an action depth of 4.5mm and turns the focused energy into a fine “hot spot” to make it work under the skin. The temperature can reach 65℃~70℃, causing immediate contraction. After the dermis of the skin is heated, it stimulates the body’s self-renewal mechanism, stimulates the proliferation and reorganization of collagen, and achieves firming and lifting effects.

 

The key to treatment is: depth and temperature, Ulthera takes care of both!

Advantages of the instrument

The first non-invasive energy system to obtain the indication of “Lifting”, approved by the United States, Europe, and Asia Health Bureau.

1. Good clinical results, most patients can achieve consistent and accurate lifting results
2. Non-invasive treatment, no knife, short repair period
3. Accurate treatment depth, through the skin directly to SMAS
4. Technological imaging system, clearly see the location of treatment
5. Immediate results in one treatment
6. Can be used with other micro plastic surgery with good results

Case Studies

Q&A

The effect can be divided into immediate and long-term:

 

The first stage is immediate. The skin collagen and SMAS layer will shrink immediately, so you can feel an immediate firming and lifting sensation right after the treatment.

When you touch the skin with your hands, there will be a firm feeling, and the facial lines will become more obvious.

 

The second stage is long-term. Collagen will regenerate and reorganize after being exposed to heat. This part will be different due to personal physique and the time it takes to grow collagen. Most people will appear after 2 to 3 months after treatment. The effect is most obvious 3 to 6 months after treatment. You can see the firmness and contour lines are more obvious, the skin texture will be improved and the skin will feel lifted.

 

The effect of the treatment and the recovery time vary from person to person.

The advantage of Ulthera is that it has a screen that can be visualized immediately, allowing doctors to accurately treat the fascia layer, so the risk of temporary numbness due to nerve irritation is very low.

Ulthera treatment depth is accurate to the SMAS layer and is non-invasive treatment, so there will be no wounds on the skin surface. The doctor will evaluate the skin condition to determine the next treatment item and time!

Thermage and Ultherapy are non-surgical treatments.

The main difference between Thermage and Ultherapy is the type of energy each uses to restore collagen production.

 

Ultherapy targets areas beneath the skin with focused ultrasound energy, using the right temperature to support collagen regeneration.

Thermage uses radio frequency technology to heat the deeper layers of your skin that are rich in collagen. The applied heat then causes collagen to contract and encourages new collagen to grow.

 

It is recommended that the doctor evaluate your skin condition and customize the lifting treatment that is most suitable for you.

This treatment is not painful, but you may experience a warm sensation beneath the surface of the skin due to collagen stimulation. However, before your treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to completely remove any chances of discomfort.

 

After the course of treatment, if there is redness, bruising or temporary numbness in the treated area, it is normal and will gradually fade away.

Before Treatment
  • If you have the following conditions, please inform in advance and consult a physician to confirm whether treatment can be carried out:
    • People with photosensitive dermatitis, keloid, hives.
    • Patients with a viral infection, lesion, abnormal blood or immune system at the treatment site.
    • People who have had herpes labialis, because it may stimulate the recurrence of herpes labialis.
    • If you have a major illness, take special drugs, or drug allergies, you should inform in advance.
    • If you are having Isotretinoin you need to discuss the stopping time with the doctor, which depends on the time and dose you had it .
    • Chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, please keep it within the normal range.
  • If there are the following conditions, it is not recommended to perform Ulthera:
    • There are active implants (e.g. pacemakers or defibrillators) or metal implants in the body
    • Pregnant women.
  • One week before treatment, stop using retinoic acid. In addition, do not use alpha hydroxy acids or other treatments such as exfoliating and skin peeling.
  • Please refrain from excessive sun exposure, SPA or sunbathing before 1 month.

Postoperative care

  • After the treatment, it might have some temporary redness, local edema, muscle or jawline tenderness, and slight soreness, these are normal reactions after Ulthera therapy. Moisturizing and sun protection of the treated area should be strengthened after the operation
  • Avoid baths, saunas, steam spa, swimming, hot springs, etc. within two weeks
  • Avoid using irritating maintenance products containing whitening, alcohol, acid or exfoliating on the treated area to avoid skin discomfort and allergies.
  • Rarely: Do not move the head arbitrarily during the course of treatment to avoid blisters or linear edema. You can apply ice after the operation and follow the doctor’s instructions.
