An Overview of Common Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift Myths in Singapore.

I wrote this article in response to some of the most frequently asked questions in my practice about Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment. There is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding about Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift and I hope this article will help you answer some of your concerns.

Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment uses microfocused ultrasound energy to stimulate the body in renewing and replacing existing collagen under the skin. This non-invasive ultrasound treatment, if used correctly by trained doctors, can effectively lift and tighten loose and saggy skin areas such as the cheeks, jowls, jawline, brows and neck area. Here are some of the facts about Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment:

  • FDA approved skin tightening treatment
  • Totally non-invasive
  • Works for women and men
  • Minimal to zero downtime
  • 1 treatment produces results
  • Results last for 12-18 months
  • Good safety profile
Myth 1: Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift will melt my fillers

There are no clinical studies that show that Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift dissolves fillers. On the contrary, in my experience, fillers such as PCL Collagen Bio-Stimulator and CaHA Collagen bio-stimulator work synergistically with Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift to stimulate collagen production.

Ultrasound energy from Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift works at an optimal temperature of approximately 60-70°C. To put things in perspective, the sterilization process of hyaluronic acid gel requires a temperature of approximately 120°C. Even at a high temperature of 120°C, filler gel remains solid and intact. So how would a temperature of 60-70°C melt your fillers?  

Furthermore, Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift has a real-time visualisation screen that allows us doctors to see in detail the structure of the skin, fat and muscles, and the exact location of the fillers. An experienced or well trained doctor will be able to deliver the energy precisely into the correct layers of your skin and avoid touching the fillers in the process.

Myth 2: Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift will melt my fat and make my face look sunken

There are no clinical studies that show that Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift can melt away fat. Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift, if done correctly by experienced doctors, should not have any impact on fat cells. 

However, in theory, if the person performing the treatment is not well trained or not meticulous with the treatment, the continuous ultrasound heat energy delivery into the same spot repeatedly can generate high enough temperature to destroy fat cells. 

Therefore, it is important to get Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift done by a doctor who has been trained to perform Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift correctly and safely.

Myth 3: Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment is very painful

When Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift was first introduced in 2007, it was indeed a painful treatment, hence the stigmatisation. 

However, since then, technology has progressed significantly and  many improvements have been made. The newer batch of Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift machines are able to deliver much more comfortable and precise ultrasound energy that produces wonderful results.

In my practice, with adequate pain management protocol, all my patients are able to undergo Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment comfortably.

Myth 4: Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatments are the same everywhere because everyone uses the same treatment protocol

Being a trained Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift expert, I get very disappointed when I hear this statement from patients. The fact of the matter is, Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift equipment is uniquely designed for women and men with different facial anatomies. In my practice, every single patient is treated with customized protocols based on their gender, age, ethnicity, facial anatomy, skin type and concerned areas. It is not just about the number of shots and the energy level. Customizing the treatment protocol is a complicated process that takes into account many factors after a thorough facial assessment is done. 

I do not deny that a lot of people out there treat every patient with the same protocol. The reason they do so is because they do not have a clear understanding of human anatomy and are not properly trained to handle the equipment. Sometimes, it is just because it is less time consuming. If you choose to receive Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment in a medical spa or by poorly trained professionals just because the price is lower, then you will get what you paid for.

Myth 5: The more shots I receive, the better results I get.

Recently, there is a trend going around where patients specifically ask about the number of Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift shots given, and choose to go for places that offer the most number of shots. Ironically, some of these places that offer the most number of shots also offer ridiculously low prices. 

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, an effective and safe Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment is not just about the number of shots. The more important thing to look out for is whether or not the place uses authentic Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift equipment, and if the person performing Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment is a well trained doctor. In my practice, every patient is treated with customized protocols taking into account multiple factors after a thorough assessment. 

Myth 6: Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift result only lasts for 6 months

Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift stimulates production and regeneration of collagen, which takes about 3 months to mature and get strong enough to provide visible support to the skin structure. After that, results can last for 12 – 18 months. Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment produces long lasting results after one single treatment.

Myth 7: Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift can only be done on the face

Besides face and neck, Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift treatment can be used on various parts of the body to tighten the skin. Some of the areas that can be treated by Non-Surgical Ultrasound Facelift are: Chest, butt, arm, under butt, above knee, abdomen, double chin.
