Did you know that sound can be used for beauty enhancement?
Well, you can check it out at your nearest BENCH Skin Expert branch where Ultherapy, the newest addition to the modern Filipina’s arsenal in the fight against skin aging, is now available.
Together with fellow beauty and lifestyle bloggers, I was invited to attend the launch of Ultherapy held at Glorietta branch of BENCH Skin Expert. The event was graced by the clinic’s celebrity endorsers which include Ashley Sandrine-Yap (daughter of actor Richard Yap) and 80’s star Yayo Aguila.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses focused ultrasound. It is the only non-invasive procedure cleared by the US FDA to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and above the eyebrow, as well as improve lines and wrinkles on the decollete. The system basically helps users achieve a fresher and more youthful look with which to face the world with confidence.
Ultherapy targets the same foundational layer as cosmetic surgeons, but instead of cutting or disrupting the skin’s surface, it sends focused ultrasound energy that creates micro-wounds. This action initiates the body’s natural response to spur the growth of fresh, new collagen while strengthening weak collagen.
While other trending non-invasive procedures such as lasers and radio frequency penetrate only up to the skin’s most superficial layer, Ultherapy actually bypasses the skin’s surface and delivers ultrasound energy at the optimal depth, temperature and precision. In fact, the dermatologist administering the procedure can actually use ultrasound imaging to visualize the skin tissue during treatment.
If you’re worried that after Ultherapy, you will be out of commission for a long time, fret not. It is actually considered a lunch-break procedure. Depending on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan, Ultherapy usually takes 60 to 90 minutes for a face and neck procedure and around 30 minutes for a chest treatment.
After the procedure, you can go about your usual activities without having to follow stringent post-operation measures.
And while you will be able to detect some initial effects immediately after the procedure, the full effects will be apparent after two to three months. That is when tired collagen is replaced by the growth of new collagen. You will then be able to enjoy the resulting youthful, lifted and tightened appearance for a year.
So if you’re interested in getting this treatment, head on to your nearest BENCH Skin Expert branch.
