Lift your skin today!

By Unknown - Saturday, June 30, 2018



Our skin has always been at the mercy of the many forces such as the sun, the harsh weather and bad habits like drinking and smoking, tho some may be heredity.  So in short our lifestyle affects the age of our skin, now I regret not listening to my mom when she says ‘sleep early’ ‘ put on your sunblock’ ! Everyday new products are put on the retail  shelves, each and every product claims to give us tighter skin, fairer skin, smoother skin, younger skin firmer skin, lifted skin and so on, some work some don't. It all depends. I don't know about you but for me as I age, the more concern I am  with the condition of my skin especially when I can see it sagging. Oh no!

We are all aware that collagen is one of the most well-known when it comes to the skin. Collagen has the ability to promote glowing, vibrant skin. This essential protein provides elasticity to the skin, helping it to appear more youthful and healthy. But as you get older and collagen production declines, fine lines, loose skin, and dryness can occur.What is the right amount of collagen? Consuming collagen powder, supplements and ‘shots’ sufficient? Personally, I saw that it helps. I have been consuming them for a very long time, but as we continue aging we lose more. What's the best way to maintain enough collagen? Well, anything that your body can produce is enough for your body. Lol. You should know by now I love aesthetics so I searched high and low for a aesthetic procedure that could lift and tighten the skin which also means stimulating the production of collagen since collagen will hold the skin together and I came across a procedure called ‘ultherapy’ which is able to lift and tighten the skin. This is also a non invasive procedure. This treatment also last for a year or more. Let's go into more details. The doctor performing this procedure for me is Dr. Kee from Premier Clinic.

Ultherapy 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. There is also no downtime with this procedure.

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. There is also no downtime with this procedure. Ultherapy 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. I'm sure you've heard of laser treatments, so what's the difference? Well Ultherapy 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 ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin's foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months while lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin such as acne and scars or minor skin issues. Laser fights from the outside while Ultherapy fights from the inside. This is what I mean by inside out. Lol. Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they're actually very compatible


Ultherapy  or Facelift? As great as Ultherapy is, it cannot replace a facelift. Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won't duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery like me. Lol




Ultherapy 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. That's why i said what the body produces should be enough for the body.  Lol. The procedure can be lengthy or short depending on the treated area. My lower face took about 30 mins for full face and neck might take 60-90 mins.




Immediately after the procedure, there is some initial effect  however the ultimate results can only be seen over 2-3 months. Over this period your body naturally regenerates collagen. This procedure produces new collagen on the inside but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. 




How did it feel? Well, I have a very low pain threshold. So the doctor actually offered to do a nerve block, as there are 3 different transducer which is the 4.5mm, 3mm and 1.5mm. For me the just the numbing cream would be sufficient for the 1.5mm and 3mm, but i didn’t wanna take the risk with the 4.5mm transducer  so I took up the offer of the ‘nerve block’ lol. With the nerve block some shots felt stronger than the other but it is overall comfortable. This is also the reason why I'll always opt for Premier Clinic when it comes to aesthetic procedures like this. The doctors are certified and not just any other beautician. These doctors can perform ‘nerve blocks’ and also mild sedation. I wouldn't want a beautician to block the wrong nerve and get me semi paralyzed do I? Lol

So Are you a suitable candidate for Ultherapy? 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 is to make an appointment with Premier Clinic and let the professionals suggest the best aesthetic treatment suited for you. Premier clinic is also having a promotion package for Ultherapy which is really worth it. Check out Their social media to check out the promotion.
