The Science of (Good) Skin

With the advent of technology, today’s facial treatments are reminiscent of Science lessons – with the added bonus of good skin!

Start your anti aging regime early to maintain good skin.

It’s been said that anti-aging treatments should start even before the face starts to show signs of sagging, in order to “preserve” one’s youthfulness. The Ultra V HIFU Facelift is suitable as early intervention to prevent the signs of aging for those in their 20s to 30s. It is also suitable as a form of maintenance for those in their 40s and 50s – if Ulthera and Thermage are deemed too pricy or painful!

The Ultra V HIFU Facelift is the latest non-surgical, clinically proven technology, for lifting and tightening the face, neck and body. Ultra V HIFU treatment works by penetrating the skin with ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deep dermal and subdermal levels. As the skin structure responds to treatment, collagen fibres organise and shorten, resulting in a tightening and lifting effect, and skin that looks younger and more refreshed.

“Through its patented, innovative continuous motion energy delivery technology, the Ultra V HIFU system is unique in its ability to deliver skin tightening energy quickly, precisely, and most importantly – painlessly into the skin to create instant results, making it one of the most popular and sought after lifting treatments for face and neck,” said Dr Ram Nath, Director, Aesthetic and Medical Services, The Wellness Clinic.

Eager to try this revolutionary treatment and see the results for myself, I booked my appointment and arrived at The Wellness Clinic’s new location at Wheelock Place.

After cleansing my face, a cool gel was applied to one side before Dr Ram started the treatment. He used different settings for my face – a 3 for the fleshier regions and 1.5 for bonier areas with thinner skin like my undereye sockets and forehead.

The procedure felt very comfortable like a massage, and I felt no heat at all. While doing my treatment, I chatted with Dr Ram who believes that sometimes we should get to the root of the problem and treat it instead. He likens HIFU to a skin gym where you strengthen and tone for healthier skin, which in turn will make your skin more resilient to problems like pigmentation, which is a sign of aging skin.

As no numbing skin was applied, the treatment process was over in less than 30 minutes making this an excellent lunchtime skin treat. I left the clinic with rejuvenated skin and slightly more pronounced V-shape jawline – ready for my next meeting or a ball!
