Dr. Terence Tan answers the top Ultherapy concerns, a non-invasive facelift treatment approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in the video.
Most of us are familiar with ultrasound, a medical technology that allows doctors to use high frequency sound waves to track the health and progress of a foetus in their mother’s body. The origin of acoustics or the science of sound is said to date back to the 6th century BC with the first application of ultrasound in 1917 when it was used to detect submarines.
Fast forward to the 21st century and doctors are now leveraging this tried-and-tested, age-old technology to help people rejuvenate and firm up loose, sagging skin on their face through Ultherapy. The beauty of this no downtime, non-invasive treatment is that it jumpstarts our body’s ability to generate collagen, which as you know, is the protein that helps your skin look firm and smooth. It also helps our skin cells renewing and repairing normally.
