Ultherapy, which has come to be known as Hollywood’s beauty secret, has become a big hit in the UAE, what with having a face lift without surgery, downtime or scarring; and your face getting firmer and firmer with each passing month.
Ultherapy in Dubai uses the power of sound to shave years off your face and other areas, without even a nip or a tuck. The technique uses ultrasound energy to tighten and lift loose skin around the jowls, chin, brows, cheeks and décolleté. It is meant to drastically improve the appearance of wrinkles with time.
The ultrasound energy used by Ultherapy targets the deep layers of the skin, where it triggers the regeneration of more collagen. This process is known as neocollagenesis, which is basically a fancy word for new collagen production.
Ultherapy is considered a natural process of anti-aging because it does not require any creams, fillers or other alien materials to be put inside your body during the treatment. It uses your own body to trigger a process of building new collagen, which also gives discernible results.
Since it is not an invasive procedure, most people would wonder how long the procedure takes. Well, according to Dr Juan Tadeo Krogulec – Specialist Plastic Surgeon at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, the length of the treatment depends on how big the area you want to treat is. If you want to lift your entire face and neck included, the treatment will take a minimum of 60 minutes and a maximum of 90 minutes. If you include your décolleté – which means the chest area by the way, then you should add another 30 minutes. This is the reason it is termed as a lunch hour procedure, because you can pop in over your lunch hour then go back to work afterwards. Just remember to book a free consultation first.
I am sure by now you are wondering if the procedure is painful. Well, sorry to disappoint you, but fortunately, it is not painful at all. The only thing you will feel is the energy waves being deposited to the inner layers of your skin, and triggering collagen production. But since we are all different, and what Jane feels might not be what Dick feels, then maybe, a numbing cream can be applied on your face. But all that depends on you.
According to our Dr Juan, who is by the way one of the best plastic surgeons in Dubai, one session is enough to lift your skin. On the other hand, if your skin is too lax, then a touch-up session might be needed after two months.
Results start to be seen clearly after two to three months, but you might notice some difference immediately after the treatment. The skin continues to produce collagen naturally, but due to the natural aging process, a touch up here and there after two years might be needed.
Also, depending on your skin type, you might experience a bit of redness immediately after the treatment, but this will disappear after a couple of hours. You might experience some tenderness and tingling but it will also disappear.
