Singapore (PRWEB) August 6, 2009 -- Last season, research in German laser aftercare produced Korean BB creams whilst glaucoma medication unearthed {!lash-lengthening solutions. | latisse} Today, a breakthrough in non-ablative aesthetic care stems from tumor cells treatment. Ultherapy? is an ultrasonic intelligence to push technological boundaries, allowing us to achieve long lasting lifting effects of the skin through ultrasound.

With real time imaging, patients can now view the actual progress on the display while clinicians deliver a safe and precise deposition of energy through a singular energy source that images (sees) and treats the skin and its underlying support structures. Engaging thermal injury to stimulate the wound healing process, intervening healthy tissue from the epidermis down to the point of treatment is mercifully spared, leaving the surface skin virtually free from any possible side-effects. Pain levels have also been greatly reduced compared to its predecessor - Radiofrequency (RF) treatments for collagen. Due to Ulthera's ability to adjust treatment depth with unparalleled accuracy, effective treatment of individual patients, independent of skin colour or thickness, despite variations in facial structure is now possible.

"Presently, with only 150 machines released worldwide, The Sloane Clinic is proud to announce the availability of Ulthera for the first time in Singapore, exclusively at our clinic," says Dr Low Chai Ling. "We strive continually to provide the safest, latest and fastest non-ablative aesthetic treatments for our patients," adds Dr Kenneth Lee.

From a single 30 to 60 minutes full-face treatment, results can last up to four or five years. Recommended follow-up treatments every six months to a year are dependent on individual demands. Normal activity can be resumed immediately after treatment. Patients may follow Ultherapy with Thermage or Fraxel treatments for a more superficial tightening. Due to overwhelming patient demand, Ulthera will only be available exclusively to its existing patients in the interim.

Ulthera answers to the natural evolution in response to the growing demand for safer, more effective modalities with minimized invasiveness and downtime.
