Ultherapy in Singapore: How to Choose an Ultherapy Clinic?
With so many clinics offering Ultherapy in Singapore, how do we know which clinic to choose?
When we look good, we feel good. A healthy lifestyle and a good anti-ageing skincare regime help us look fresh and radiant, but with age, we may need a little bit of help from aesthetic doctors to prevent our skin from sagging, and to keep it firm and supple.
Cutting-edge technologies today help us lift and firm our skin without going under the knife, and Ultherapy is one of the most popular skin firming and skin lifting treatments in Singapore. It is both safe and effective, and it is also a non-surgical treatment that has no downtime. A huge plus point for busy adults!
With so many clinics offering Ultherapy, how do we know which clinic to choose? Here are some important points to consider before booking your Ultherapy appointment:
1. Authentic devices
The success of Ultherapy has led to counterfeit devices popping up in the market and these devices may do more harm than good. For the treatment to be effective, ultrasound energy needs to be delivered to the correct depths under your skin, and counterfeit devices may not be able to be as precise as the authentic Ultherapy machines, and that can result in burns or less-than-desirable results.
Therefore, it is important to ask to see the Ultherapy Certificate of Authenticity, and check for the Ultherapy Seal of Authenticity on the machine just to be sure!
2. Full range of transducers
The authentic Ultherapy device comes with a visualiser with real-time imaging so that doctors can see each individual’s unique skin layers and plan their treatments using different Ultherapy transducers. These transducers treat our skin at three different depths—superficial dermis at 1.5mm, deep dermis at 3mm, and SMAS layer at 4.5mm.
However, to achieve optimal results, it is recommended to find an Ultherapy clinic that carries the full range of Ultherapy transducers. Using the correct transducer will ensure that the treatment can be administered effectively even in hard-to-reach areas.
3. Transparent in the number of Ultherapy lines you are receiving
Always ask your doctor how many lines you will be receiving for your Ultherapy treatment to avoid getting short-changed.
In the early days, the treatment protocol of Ultherapy was for the doctor to deliver 500 lines, or 500 shots, of microfocused ultrasound energy to lift and firm the skin. Ultherapy has since updated its protocol and recommends 800 lines for a more dramatic lift. Besides an improvement in results, there is definitely a price difference between a 500-line Ultherapy treatment and an 800-line Ultherapy treatment. Therefore, it is important for you to know how many Ultherapy lines or shots you will be receiving for the price you are paying.
All Ultherapy patients at Halley Medical Aesthetics will get a personalised Ultherapy Patient Record following their procedure to make sure they get the right number of lines. You will be able to see the Ultherapy lines that were administered to each area of your face.
4. Ultherapy SPT-certified clinic
Ultherapy established the See Plan Treat treatment protocol, an upgrade to the previous protocol to provide micro-focused ultrasound energy to the ideal depth in our skin for optimal results.
The good news is, Halley Medical Aesthetics is now an Ultherapy SPT-Certified aesthetics facility in Singapore. Our doctors have undergone training for the new Ultherapy SPT protocol, and you can be sure that your Ultherapy treatment at Halley is highly personalised for you.
5. Experienced doctors
Our doctors have a lot of experience with Ultherapy treatments, and Halley Medical Aesthetics was awarded “Golden Record Awards” for five consecutive years by Merz Aesthetics, the pharmaceutical company behind Ultherapy.
You can trust Halley to take good care of you during your treatment.
6. Pain management
We often hear about the pain that comes together with Ultherapy. Check with the clinic on their pain management protocol for Ultherapy treatment. At Halley, patients are given pain medications, and numbing cream is applied before the treatment to make the Ultherapy session a more comfortable one. Most patients experience some discomfort, but it is generally quite bearable.
7. A doctor who is willing to listen
A good experience at an aesthetics clinic always involves good communication between the doctor and the patient. You should let your doctor know your skin concerns and if there are any particular areas that you want them to focus on to get the best out of your treatment.
Choosing the right clinic for your Ultherapy treatment in Singapore can save you unnecessary worry, and having a personalised treatment will ensure that you achieve effective results for your skin concerns.
