Ultherapy in Singapore
Natural Face-Lift from $2000
Ultherapy is a non-invasive US FDA-Approved treatment that counteracts the effects of skin aging.
It triggers your body’s natural collagen production to gradually tighten and lift the skin around the 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 visualise the thickness of your skin before delivering focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in that layer of your skin.

What is Ulthera / Ultherapy
Ultherapy makes use of ultrasound energy to target deep layers of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. It is an FDA-Approved Treatment for the face, chin, neck, and chest. It uses a device allowing your doctor to see underneath the top layers of skin to help them properly treat targeted areas at the proper depth.
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 aging process – this results in the drooping and sagging of skin.
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 aging which is collagen loss at the deep layers of your skin. Collagen loss at the deep layers of your skin manifests as saggy jowls, double chin and droopy eyelids. This deep layer of your skin are 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. In fact, more than 1,250,000 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?
Builds New Collagen
Ultherapy encourages collagen production by using focused ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the skin, without causing any damage to your skin’s surface.
Collagen is a structural protein of the body and it’s what holds your skin in place. 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.
Treats the Deep Layers of Your Skin
Ultherapy delivers ultrasonic energy to the deep layers of your skin to help with the production of collagen at these foundational layers. The device delivers heat in the deep layers of the skin, which heats up the tissues and muscles, 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, chin, neck, and chest. It counteracts skin aging signs such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and drooping brow area. This FDA-cleared technology helps encourage collagen production, which helps maintain or bring back that youthful look. It gives a natural facelift without having to undergo surgical procedures. 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?
Growing older is a privilege, but the aging process 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 lowered brow, 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.
Before Ultherapy treatment, your doctor will perform a detailed medical consultation with facial analysis.. After determining the suitability of Ultherapy treatment and other potentially synergistic treatments (like fillers and lasers), we will proceed with numbing cream for 15-30 minutes.
- During the Ultherapy treatment
The Ultherapy handpiece will be placed over the targeted areas to administer ultrasound waves deep into the skin. These ultrasound energy waves will be delivered to multiple depths of your skin. . This process triggers collagen contraction, which then initiates collagen synthesis. Treatment usually lasts from 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the extent of your treatment areas.
- After the Ultherapy treatment
Since there is little to no downtime with Ultherapy®, you are free to return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment is complete. Some patients appear flushed, or may experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to touch. These side effects are mild and temporary in nature, and are not expected to interfere with your normal activities. 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?
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 aging. Ultherapy has shown favorable results in just one treatment, and more visible improvement at 90 day and 180 day post-treatment.
Tightens and lifts skin on your brows, neck, and under the chin
Ultherapy is the first U.S FDA approved non-invasive brow, neck, and submentum (under-chin) lift – showing 1.7mm lift in the brow area after just one treatment. It stimulates the production of collagen deep within the skin to help lift tissues – this leads to tighter skin after 2-3 months and continued improvement up to 6 months.
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 allows our doctors to deliver ultrasound energy with more precision, which potentially means better skin tightening and lifting results.
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, on the eyebrow and under the chin as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. The CE Mark indications for use include non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the dermis on the upper face, lower face, neck and décolleté.
Is Ultherapy painful?
Ultherapy is tolerated by most patients with numbing cream (topical anesthesia). Pain score is reported to be 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 1,250,000 Ultherapy treatments have been administered 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 condition 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.

The variety of solutions available allows us to customise a personalised treatment plan for you so that you get the results that you seek.

There is minimal to no downtime required. You can immediately get back to your normal routine after undergoing the procedure. There are 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 neocollagenesis process takes place over 2-3 months, so your results will develop over that time. 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.
Note: Individual results will vary.
Ultherapy does not replace facelift surgery.
For individuals with severe amount of saggy skin, the best treatment would be face lift surgery.
The ideal candidate for Ultherapy is one who has 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.
Traditional laser treatment treats the skin’s surface, while Ultherapy treats skin on a much deeper level. This non-invasive treatment targets the foundation level of the skin. It can go about 3.5 to 4.5mm deep – ensuring treatment from the bottom up, which effectively triggers collagen production from deep within the skin.
Laser Treatments target the skin’s surface, which will require the patient some downtime. Ulthera targets the skin from underneath, which isn’t visible. This requires no downtime, and you can immediately get back to your regular routine.
No significant preparations are required prior to the treatment. Some medications may make you more likely to bruise.
During your consultation, please inform your doctor of any medications and supplements that you might be taking. Your doctor may recommend that you temporarily discontinue use of some medications or supplements prior to the treatment.
Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the heating sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered, and is an indication that the procedure is working.
