Is it for you? Why should you get it?

Important Questions on Ulthera

Trust that for every new innovation in dermatology and cosmetic surgery, there will be a ton of questions. It’s a good norm. A discerning client pushes doctors to create better solutions and opportunities for growth. 

Here in the Philippines, the Belo Medical Group pioneers Ulthera. A new way to improve on your features and to do away with imperfections, you might want to consider this next time you drop by a Belo clinic near you. 

We get it though, you may have some hesitation. So we put together a guide to let you know all about Ulthera. 

What can Ulthera do for me?

The primary goal of Ulthera is to get rid of the fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging in the face, and upper neck. It defines your cheeks, jawline, and brow area.

How does it go? Is it a form of surgery?

Ulthera is a non-surgical procedure. That’s a plus point especially if you’re the type who opts not to go under the knife. 

What does it use then to smooth out my fine lines?

It uses MFU-V Micro Focused Ultrasound with Visualization. An ultrasound applicator is utilized, emitting sound waves through your skin. It is precise as it targets exactly what you want it to tighten and lift. 

The sound waves contracts collagen and elastin by about thirty percent. 

What’s the use of collagen and elastin? 

Collagen and elastin are naturally occurring proteins in the body. 

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your system. It makes up most of the muscles, skin, blood, bones, cartilage, and ligaments. It provides structure and gives that plump and healthy appearance. 

Elastin is the protein that helps your skin go back to its form when it pinched. Lack of elastin is the reason behind the wrinkles and lack of structure on your skin. 

Your body produces collagen and elastin regularly. 

The production of these proteins goes down with age. Ulthera helps with this. It delivers a treatment that stimulates the collagen and elastin.

Is it safe? 

Yes. Ulthera is a technology that is US FDA approved. It is performed in over 60 countries, satisfying over 1 million clients. 

How long is one session?

Belo Medical Group offers Ulthera for 45 minutes a session. You can easily schedule it despite a busy day! 

Expected downtime? 

Good news: There is little downtime. Regular activities can be done immediately after the session. 

Sounds too good to be true. What should I observe after an appointment? 

Just be aware of the minimal redness, swelling, and soreness on the treated area. Don’t worry! It’s perfectly normal and expected. It will quickly fade. 

How long before I see results?

Immediately. After two to three months, the difference is noticeable but it doesn’t look unnatural. It’s just you, only smoother and looking better!

Should I get one?
