Women have increasingly been flocking to firming treatments that don’t require going under the knife, understandably so, as minimizing complications and recovery time are priorities for leading such hectic lives. With Ultherapy in the country, we can experience the natural yet noticeable lifting effects of the first and only US FDA-approved non-surgical lifting procedure for the brow, under the chin, neck, and décolletage.To break down this beauty breakthrough and why it’s gained a lot of popularity – Ultherapy lifts the skin using ultrasound technology to stimulate the body’s own healing process, treating the deeper layers of the skin without disrupting or cutting the surface.
The treatment is from one of the world’s leading aesthetics companies, the German pharmaceutical company Merz. Ultherapy is another of their many products in the field of aesthetic medicine since creating the world’s first anti-wrinkle cream in 1953.
Since Ultherapy’s US FDA clearance, it has been improving and innovating its technology for patients, while still maintaining its unparalleled safety and efficacy.
“This technology is the first of its kind in that it is able to get to deeper skin layers and treat them without any damage to the outer layers. Lasers, Radiofrequency and other devices on the other hand, treat from the outside going in, and are not US FDA-cleared to lift skin,” explains Merz Asia Pacific Senior Regional Medical Director Dr. Owen Sunga. “The ultrasound technology used in Ultherapy prompts new collagen and elastin formation so the body is able to treat itself.”
With just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effects are gradual as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Results are maximally visible in three months, and further improvements can appear up to six months to one year after a procedure, as the collagen-building process continues.
It didn’t take long before international beauty editors and celebrities took notice and became fans of this breakthrough technology. One of Ultherapy’s biggest believers is the Philippines’ Queen of Talk, Ms. Kris Aquino. The multimedia star says that Ultherapy was the answer to her number one beauty worry.
“I felt that surgery would cause more problems for me than what it would be worth,” says Kris. “I didn’t want anything drastic and high maintenance. I just thought that I’d be happier without a few lines here and there. So, when I was told about this non-surgical lifting procedure that would just take over an hour and needed no downtime, I had to try it.”
“After I started seeing the effects, I became a believer. Because my body causes the lifting and firming from the collagen production, the results looked so natural. I got so many compliments but no one could tell I had anything done. I knew I found my #UltimateBeautySecret,” shares Kris.
Merz Philippines Healthcare, Inc. Marketing Manager Judith Albano says that Ultherapy is a great addition to the country’s beauty and wellness industry. “There is great demand for non-invasive procedures, especially for lifting. Ultherapy answers that call for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity, those who want to ‘stay ahead of the game’ with preventive measures, and even those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.”
She continues, “We want to ensure people of safety and efficacy when they undergo cosmetic treatments. As the only US FDA-cleared lifting procedure for the brow, under the chin, neck, and décolletage, Ultherapy will surely be a top choice for Filipinos who want a natural looking lift, without a single incision.”
