Ultherapy treatments from $1800.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive US FDA-Approved treatment that counteracts the effects of skin sagging,ageing and laxity.
Using heat and ultrasound technology, Ultherapy triggers your body’s natural collagen production to gradually tighten and lift the skin around the lower face, eyebrows, neck and chin. This treatment also improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Visualisation gives Precision. Ultherapy is the only ultrasound skin tightening device that allows doctors to directly visualise the thickness of your skin before delivering focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in that layer of your skin.
Better precision in terms of treatment will allow us to achieve better results in terms of skin lifting and skin tightening.

What is Ulthera / Ultherapy
Why Is Collagen Production important?
Collagen is a protein that holds the skin in place. It forms a fibrous network of cells in the dermis called fibroblasts, where new cells can grow to replace and restore dead skin cells. Collagen production naturally reduces as part of the ageing process – this results in the drooping and sagging of skin.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to heat up tissues and muscles in the deep layers of the skin. This helps to stimulate the production of collagen and leads to skin regeneration called neocollagenesis. It triggers the body’s natural healing process which causes us to use our own collagen to rebuild the skin’s framework. While results are seen 2 to 3 months after treatments, the new collagen cells are what restores your drooping skin to a firmer shape.

What are the benefits of Ultherapy treatment?
Treats Collagen Loss in the Deep Layers of Your Skin – Ultherapy targets one of the most challenging signs of facial ageing which is collagen loss.
Collagen loss at the deep layers of your skin manifests as saggy jowls, double chin and droopy eyelids. This affected deep layer of your skin is known as the SMAS layer (superficial musculo-aponeurotic system). The SMAS layer is the same layer of skin that plastic surgeons tighten in a face lift surgery.
Non-Invasive Treatment – Under ultrasound guidance, Ultherapy treatment directs micro-focused ultrasound energy precisely into the deep layers of your skin to encourage collagen production.
With minimal to no recovery time, you can go about your normal routine. Depending on where you are treated, the procedure can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Some patients see an immediate result, but you should expect to see the final results appear gradually and naturally over 2-3 months, or even up to 6 months post-treatment.
Research Backed – With more than 100 research papers and more than 10 years of clinical use since US FDA approval in 2008, Ultherapy is a trusted brand for non-surgical skin tightening treatments. It is widely popular in more than 75 countries around the world. In fact, more than 1,500,000 Ultherapy treatments have been performed around the world since.
Standardised Protocols – We use the official Amplify 2 protocol for Ultherapy. The Amplify 2 protocol is the updated protocol that enhances the skin tightening and face lifting effects of the treatment using more ultrasound shots with more optimal energy levels. The strict standardisation of protocol means that you are getting the same treatment that has benefited numerous patients around the globe.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
1. Stimulates New Collagen
Ultherapy stimulates collagen production by using focused ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the skin, without causing any damage to your skin’s surface.
Collagen is an important component of our skin that helps maintain a supple and youthful appearance. A healthy amount of collagen in the body helps maintain your skin’s elasticity and firmness. But as we age, collagen production gradually decreases. This causes the cheeks, jawline, neck and eyebrow area to droop and sag.
2. Treatment that targets the Deep Layers of Your Skin
Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy to the deep layers of your skin to stimulate the production of collagen at these foundational layers. The device delivers heat energy that is targeted at the deep layers of the skin. The targeted layers get heated up, stimulating the production of collagen. This skin regeneration process is called neocollagenesis – wherein the body uses its own collagen to help heal and rebuild the skin’s structure. This leads to the lifting and tightening of sagging skin and improvement of fine lines and wrinkles on the chest.
What Can Ultherapy Treat?
The main treatment areas of this procedure are the brows, cheek, jawline, neck, and chest. It counteracts skin ageing signs such as sagging skin, double chin and droopy brows.
This FDA-cleared technology helps stimulate natural collagen production, which helps maintain or bring back that youthful look. Effects build gradually over a few months as collagen is replenished with stronger collagen.

What is the Treatment Process?
Am I a Candidate for Ultherapy?
As part of the ageing process, collagen loss is inevitable, which may leave you longing for your younger skin. A good Ultherapy® candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look less firm or tight. Examples include a sagging of the cheeks, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
Ultherapy® results in a gradual, natural looking lift, leaving patients looking refreshed. However, Ultherapy® cannot achieve as drastic results as a surgical facelift. Therefore, Ultherapy® is a great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking for maintenance to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Before Ultherapy treatment, it is important to get a detailed medical consultation with facial analysis with your doctor.
Your suitability for Ultherapy treatment will be assessed, as well as other potentially synergistic treatments (like fillers and lasers) will be recommended if suitable.
Next, we will proceed with numbing cream for 30 minutes before the procedure is performed.
During the Ultherapy treatment
The Ultherapy handpiece will be placed over the targeted treatment areas where ultrasound waves are administered deep into the skin.
These ultrasound energy waves are delivered to multiple depths of your skin to stimulate collagen in the different skin layers. This process triggers collagen contraction, which then initiates collagen synthesis.
Treatment usually lasts from 30 – 90 minutes, depending on your treatment areas.
After the Ultherapy treatment
One benefit of the Ultherapy® treatment is that there is no downtime after the treatment. You are free to return to your regular activities immediately after your treatment is complete.
Some patients may experience slight skin redness, swelling or soreness after the treatment. These side effects are expected and are usually mild and temporary.
As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will explain during your consultation.
What results can I expect with Ultherapy?
Tightens and lifts skin on your cheeks, jawline, lower face, double chin and neck
Ultherapy is the first U.S FDA approved non-invasive natural face lifting treatment. It stimulates the production of collagen deep within the skin to help lift tissues – resulting to tighter skin after 2-3 months and best results achieved after 6 months.
Improved contouring of the jowls and jawline
As the Ultherapy treatment uses heat and ultrasound technology to target different depths of the skin, the tightening and lifting also helps to enhance the contours of the lower face and jawline. This can help women achieve their desired slim or V shaped face with improved contours and jawline definition.
Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the Décolletage
Many patients neglect treating wrinkles and creases on their décolletage, not realizing immediately that it can be a visible sign of skin ageing. Ultherapy has shown favourable results in just one treatment, and more visible improvement at 90 day and 180 day post-treatment.
Difference between Ultherapy, HIFU and Thermage
Ultherapy VS Thermage
Ultherapy VS HIFU
Both Ultherapy and Ultraformer 3 HIFU use ultrasound energy to target problem areas. However, only Ultherapy has the capability of imaging
Ultherapy offers Precision with Real-time visualisation.
This also means extra safety. Ultrasound visualisation enables our doctors to control exactly where energy will be delivered, and to avoid structures such as bone and blood vessels.
The non-invasive Ultherapy® procedure is U.S. FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, upper and lower face, under the chin as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. The CE Mark indications for use include non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the dermis on the upper face, lower face, neck and décolletage.
Is Ultherapy painful?
Numbing cream will be applied prior to the Ultherapy treatment. This is tolerated by most patients, with a reported pain score of around 2-4/10 depending on the individual’s pain tolerance.
We also offer oral painkillers and nerve block injections, if required.
Compared to facelift surgery, the pain and recovery process of Ultherapy is minimal.
More than 1,500,000 Ultherapy treatments have been administered in more than 75 countries all over the world. This treatment is proven to be safe and effective. It can improve sagging cheeks, smoothen forehead skin, tighten saggy skin under the neck, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and chest area.
We emphasise that individual results will vary with Ultherapy. This is because everyone has different skin conditions and severity of skin ageing. In addition, your body’s ability to produce collagen in response to Ultherapy will also differ.
This is why every Ultherapy treatment starts with a medical consult to determine if Ultherapy is suitable for you and whether you need other treatments like fillers and lasers to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
A good Ultherapy® candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look less firm or tight.
Examples include lower face sagging, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy® results in a gradual, natural looking lift, leaving patients looking refreshed.
However, Ultherapy® will not have as drastic results as a surgical facelift. Therefore, Ultherapy® is a great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
There is minimal to no downtime required. You can immediately get back to your normal routine after undergoing the procedure. There is no lasting discomfort and no special post-treatment instructions to follow.
Note: Individual results, side-effects and recovery times will vary.
The number of treatments a patient needs will depend on our skin’s laxity and how your body responds to the treatment..
If you have more skin laxity, you may need 2 treatments spaced 6-12 months apart. Collagen takes time to develop. Waiting this long will help you see how much your skin has improved, which will make you decide whether to have another procedure or not.
You will notice slight improvements within a couple of weeks following a procedure. Your skin will continuously improve for the next 3-6 months, leaving your skin firmer.
Note: Individual results will vary.
The initial results of this treatment usually come after the first 2 or 3 months after the procedure. Gradual skin tightening and lifting will happen on the treated areas.
Fine lines and wrinkles will eventually improve in appearance as they’re filled with new, stronger collagen.
Once the maximum results have been achieved, the ageing process will continue as collagen levels start to decrease. Lifestyle changes can help the results to last longer.
Maintenance treatment with regular Ultherapy treatment once a year can help to enhance the results as well.
Hundreds of thousands of Ultherapy treatments have been performed safely and successfully. Some patients may experience mild side effects that are not long-lasting.
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 of other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
Ultherapy does not replace facelift surgery.
For individuals with severe amounts of saggy skin, the best treatment would be face lift surgery.
The ideal candidate for Ultherapy is one who has a mild to moderate amount of saggy skin and collagen loss.
The heat generated by Ultherapy will stimulate your skin to encourage collagen production. The collagen fills up targeted areas and results in firmer and healthier skin.
Ultherapy treatments are used to delay the need for face-lift surgery as well as maintenance post-face lift surgery.
