How Does A Non Surgical Facelift Benefit Me?
Intrigued by facelifts but scared to go under the knife? In case you haven’t heard, it is no longer necessary to undergo surgery to lift and sculpt your face! With the latest technology and treatments at hand, non surgical facelifts are becoming increasingly popular the world over. As we age, the skin on our face starts to loosen up and sag. This is where a non surgical facelift comes in to stimulate collagen production and tighten skin, for a younger and more lifted appearance.
What is a non surgical facelift?
In the simplest of terms a non surgical facelift is one where you don’t undergo surgery. This type of lift makes use of Ultherapy or HIFU, a non-invasive ultrasound treatment that tightens the skin on the face and neck areas. And don’t worry as it is completely safe! The only FDA approved treatment for non-surgical lift in Singapore, Ultherapy is designed for face lifting and tightening.
Too busy to make time for your skin? Ulthera takes only 60 minutes and comes with minimal or no downtime, which means you can walk off to your meeting – right after!
The system used for the therapy, Ulthera uses High Intensity Focussed Ultrasound (HIFU) a type of heat energy to stimulate the production of natural collagen under our skin. Similar to other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator is placed on the skin that projects images onto a screen. This applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect.
What is remarkable is that the process is delivered without any incision or cuts on the face! Heat stimulates the skin to regenerate new collagen that leads to gradual tightening and a firmer, naturally lifted look over time.

Advantages of a non surgical facelift versus a traditional surgical version
Technically speaking, Ultherapy is not a complete substitute for a surgical facelift. While the procedure may give similar results, this non-invasive option cannot replace cases where surgery is imperative. What Ultherapy does is to provide an alternative to traditional surgical facelift WITHOUT the risks of going under the knife. It is considered a much safer, and equally effective lift procedure the world over.
Ultherapy aims to prevent or delay the need for invasive surgical intervention and is not meant just for the ageing population amongst us. With more people adopting a preemptive approach towards skincare, plenty of younger customers are choosing Ultherapy as a means to build collagen from the inside.
That said, do remember that not everyone is cut out for Ulthera. If you have a significant amount of sagging or laxity on your face, a non-surgical option may not give satisfactory results. The best route then is to consult your doctor and find out if Ultherapy is indeed the way forward for you.
Treatment Type and Areas
What doctors (and their patients) love about Ultherapy is its versatility. Treatments can be customised to what you want and expect out of them. So, if it’s your face and neck that need focus or specifically the forehead, temples, lower face or jaw line – simply let your doctor know and they can treat it with Ulthera’s magic wand.
Common problems that are treated include saggy cheeks and jowls, drooping eyebrows, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and sagging skin in the neck and chin. Particularly helpful for those looking to improve the area around their eyes, Ultherapy can lift eyebrows to reduce droopiness on the eyelids, smoothen out crows’ feet and give an overall refreshed look to the eyes.
When it comes to sagging skin on the cheeks, tightening and lifting of the area affects more than just the buccal region. Folds from the nose to your mouth, mouth to the jawline and drooping corners of the mouth are all improved giving way to a fresher, younger appearance.

How can Ultherapy or a nonsurgical facelift benefit me?
Those that are serious about skin care will probably question how much merit there is in Ultherapy vs. a laser treatment. Lasers typically target the superficial skin on our face and take away signs of ageing – wrinkles, lines and pigmentation. Ultherapy works deeper down. By going far into the skin’s tissues, Ultherapy uses the body’s own mechanism to regenerate collagen levels and is often seen as a pre-emptive approach to ageing.
In an FDA clinical trial, nine out of ten patients noticed a significant lift of the brow line. They also observed firmer and tighter skin on the face as well as the neck. With 95% of patients stating they were satisfied one year after the treatment, you too should consider Ultherapy if long lasting results are what you’re after.
Will you see a difference right away? The regenerative process is initiated immediately after an Ultherapy treatment and some users are able to notice lifting of the skin instantly. However, the full effect of it will only build gradually and over a few months.
And of course, as with any treatment your skin will continue its natural aging process, so you may have to go in for additional top up’s to maintain these amazing results.
Ultherapy is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ultrasound to image and treat the skin. This ability to utilize an established technology and treat skin with great precision is what delivers safe, satisfying results.
