FDA-APPROVED HIFU for LIFTING
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment programme for face and neck lifting.
THE GOLD STANDARD IN NON-INVASIVE LIFTING AND TIGHTENING
Ultrasound energy has long been associated with radiation-free medical imaging but did you know it can also have applications in skin tightening? Ultherapy® by Merz is the only FDA-approved High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment programme for face and neck lifting.
Focused ultrasound waves are delivered to physician-directed layers of the face – skin, fat or muscular aponeurosis to regenerate new collagen and tighten the areas. Ultherapy® is the gold-standard in non-invasive reduction of jowls, lifting of the lower face and cheeks and reducing loose skin in the neck (double chin).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the treatment process?
First, a thorough assessment and consultation will be done by your doctor. Numbing cream will be applied to the face and / or neck. Your doctor might recommend the use of other supplementary painkillers including a nerve block of the sensory nerves of the face. Removable skin markings may be made on the treatment areas if necessary. The procedure is done by a team of doctor and therapist – the physician will be using the Ultherapy® probe and monitor to deliver precise shots of ultrasound energy to the desired layers of the face, while the therapist will be aiding the process by generously applying ultrasound gel.
