Face Lifting / Skin Tightening by Ulthera
What is Ulthera® HIFU
Ulthera utilises HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) energy, and is a US FDA approved system. It is the gold standard for non-surgical, non-invasive and no downtime facelift to prevent and lift saggy & droopy skin. The results of Ulthera is a lifted face, bringing you back 5 years ago to how you previously looked.
Ulthera HIFU treatment is known to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, chest and on the eyebrow through harnessing the power of ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production as the skin’s foundational layer, which is typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Ultrasound energy essentially triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ulthera HIFU has been established as safe and effective in numerous clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ulthera® HIFU Results & Safety Profile
Most patients see an immediate noticeable lift right after one treatment, but the real ultimate results appear over 2 to 3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.
Although most patients only need one treatment to see a difference, your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help you keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
With Ulthera HIFU, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.
So just ONE non-invasive Ultherapy® HIFU treatment is clinically proven to help counteract the effects of time, gravity and sun exposure without downtime – why not try it now!
How it Works
Builds New Collagen - The Ultherapy® HIFU procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
No Toxins or Needles - Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy HIFU bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jump starting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
No Downtime. Natural Results - Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ulthera HIFU won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Which is better – Thermage or Ulthera?
We have both the Thermage & Ultherapy treatments in Singapore because in reality, Thermage and Ulthera treats different things. Thermage removes the wrinkles from your skin. On the other hand, Ulthera solves the problem of saggy and droopy skin by giving the skin a lifting effect. Thermage and Ulthera thus work together, hand in hand to give a holistic 3D Face Lift by removing wrinkles and lifting saggy / droopy skin.

Ulthera / Ultherapy HIFU FAQs
What is Ultherapy HIFU?
Ultherapy HIFU is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
What is unique about Ultherapy HIFU?
Ultherapy HIFU is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial.
With the addition of the new Ultherapy® Décolletage Treatment, Ultherapy is also now the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Can Ultherapy HIFU replace an invasive surgical face lift?
Almost but not yet. Ultherapy HIFU treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won't duplicate the results of an invasive surgical facelift. Ultherapy HIFU is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for invasive surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How does Ultherapy HIFU differ from laser treatments?
Ultherapy HIFU uses sound energy - tried-and-true ultrasound - which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device.
Ultherapy HIFU ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat and rejuvinate superficial skin.
Nonetheless, since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they're actually very compatible.
How does Ultherapy HIFU stimulate the creation of collagen?
Ultherapy HIFU deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn't involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
How long does an Ultherapy® HIFU treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Will I need to take time off?
With Ultherapy HIFU, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
What does the Ultherapy® HIFU treatment feel like?
As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
When will I see results? How long do they last?
After your Ultherapy® HIFU Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you.
The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
How many Ultherapy® HIFU treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments.
Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
Are there any side effects?
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy HIFU?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you're an Ultherapy HIFU candidate is to come and have a consultation with our doctors.
