There comes a time when you start noticing wrinkles, fine lines, and skin sagging issues and are unsatisfied with your appearance. Though facelifting is a good option, it involves surgery and is quite expensive too. In such cases, you might look for an option that is pain-free and involves no surgery.
Ultherapy is an excellent non-surgical option that uses non-invasive ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen regeneration against the skin ageing process. This advanced technology is offered by Retens Medical, located centrally in TsimShaTsui, Hongkong.

How does it work?
The treatment targets the areas to reach the deepest layers of your skin with focused ultrasound energy that uses the right temperature to support collagen reproduction. It is used for lifting and firming the skin on the neck, face, chest, and eyebrows.
The ulthera probehelps the skin tissues get heated up to a critical temperature of about 60 degrees Centigrade to 70 degrees centigrade. As the heat energy enters the skin, the weakened collagen first breaks down and then stimulates the growth of fresh collagen in the body. Skin tightening continues for about 3 months after the process and finally, the results become visible.
The treatment is one of the safest and fastest ways to restore smooth, firm, and youthful skin.

Risks or side effects
The focused ultrasound in the 超聲刀 treatment is delivered perfectly into the skin for heating the skin tissues. Due to this, short-term sensations including tingling, swelling, and tenderness are experienced that subside soon after the process.
The part of the skin that is treated can sometimes become red or flushed within hours after the procedure. At times, there can be some bruises or numbness, but all this goes away within a few days.
Number of treatments
Ageing is a natural process but the results of this treatment are not permanent. With some patients, the results last as long as three years but many patients have found the problems reappearing after one year.
You can select a personalized treatment plan at the clinic that will include a maintenance appointment within 6 months and 1 year after the first procedure. It is advisable to seek treatment almost once a year to keep your skin looking the best.
The number of treatments depends on your requirements. Since it is safe to perform in multiple areas, you can consult with the doctor and go for frequent treatments to achieve and maintain good results.
