It is said that a man’s prime is in his thirties. Ironically, it is also around our thirties when we start noticing the visible effects of lost youth on our faces largely due to the fact that collagen production starts declining at an accelerated rate once we hit 21. Scrutinising yourself in your bathroom mirror, you spot fine lines around the orbital region that were never there. Your jowls are noticeably saggier and skin is less taut than before. The bad news is, if you’ve never had a proper skincare regimen and use SPF religiously, chances are, the effects of aging might be more pronounced on you than people who do. On the flip side, while we might not be able to rewind the damage that has been done. You can salvage what’s lost and mitigate further damage from aging. All you need is a quick trip to the aesthetic clinic during your lunch break.
The Ultra V HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) facelift, offered by The Wellness Clinic, is a brand new, non-surgical approach to a facelift designed to tackle early signs of aging and slow down the process. It works by pulsing ultrasound energy deep within the dermal and subdermal layers of the skin to promote collagen synthesis. The collagen fibres respond to the energy by shortening and organising itself which in turn tightens and lifts skin, giving you a noticeably younger and firmer visage.
The treatment is unique as it delivers the energy through a moving probe which completely mitigates the pain that you might get from traditional radiofrequency treatments such as the Ulthera and Thermage. Both treatments employ stamping or face mapping to target the whole face simultaneously thus explaining the discomfort if your pain threshold is low.
Struggle with a chronic double chin? The emitted energy from Ultra V HIFU also helps melt any stubborn facial fats so that your facial contours become more prominent. The promise of visible firming and lifting results upon your first treatment (sans the downtime) is very much fulfilled when you come back from lunch looking like you’ve gone back in time 5 years ago.
