Non-invasive treatment to smooth wrinkles and firming face
We all know working mummies like us are very time starved and how the whole shebang of work pressures and family duties can take the energy – and youth – out of us. Fortunately for us, the Ultherapy treatment can restore what time has done to us and in a jiffy.
I was with Dr Soh Lea Sar from Healthsprings Laser and Aesthetic Clinic – director and founder of Healthsprings Laser and Aesthetic Clinic – to review the Ultherapy treatment that promises great results.
The Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive treatment and stimulates collagen growth by using the Ultherapy Ultrasound energy to reach deep below the surface of our skin – micro-focused ultrasound with visualization at the precise depths and temperature to gradually lift skin on the neck, chin and brow, and smooth wrinkles on the décolleté with no downtime (YAY! We can do this during our lunch break and no one will know we had Ultherapy done!).
I was hesitant at first as I was told the treatment can be really painful but knowing I am in the good hands of Dr Soh, I felt encouraged to give the Ultherapy a go. The anesthetic cream was first administered to help numb the skin before the ultrasound was used. The ultrasound energy delivered on my face felt was bearable and felt like little ants crawling all over my face.
I was unhappy with my double chin and one treatment with a little enhancement firmed the jawline and the double chin is less visible!
The Ultherapy treatment can improve your confidence especially if you feel your face is saggy. Some people may see the initial effect right after treatment like I did but I was told the real results appear 2 – 3 months later as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck – with optimal results in 6 months the results can last for 1 to 2 years.
While the Ultherapy treatment does not have the same results of a facelift, the treatments promises a safer alternative for those who are not ready to go under the knife. Thanks to Healthsprings Laser and Aesthetic Clinic I could do a quick treatment and still head back to work after.
While I was at the clinic I also picked up the AH-MAZING Healthsprings Crystal White Gel ($88) which replicates the effects of the Crystal Tomato skincare at a marginally more affordable price. Using the Healthsprings Crystal White Gel really complement the Ultherapy treatment for a fairer radiant looking skin.
