My Son was admitted with a very rare autoimmune illness in April this year. The care he was given was superb Prof Dheda, Prof Louw and their team of specialists covered every possibility , diagnosed efficiently and treated effectively. There was time taken to explain everything. The Hospital Matron made allowances for me to spend as much as possible time with my son and also allowed for frequent visits from close family. Mr Daniel Mathew the Hospital General manager is very approachable and interested . The staff was friendly and helpful. Basically every one from reception through admin to ICU was friendly and helpful. I Highly recommend this hospital

Ultherapy is an FDA-approved non-invasive skin tightening treatment. Known as the non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery, Ultherapy uses a focused ultrasound beam to boost collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. Collagen is a natural protein that comes in numerous different types. It gives firmness and tightness to your skin. As we grow old, collagen loses its strength and firmness and shows laxity. This procedure gives collagen its strength back.
While a facelift offers more obvious results, it leaves scars and has other associated risks such as nerve damage and clot formation. Ultherapy, on the other hand, requires plenty of time to make its effects visible. Also, more sessions are needed to maintain its effects. It strengthens the loose skin of your face and neck and nullifies the effects of ageing on your face. It has the advantage that there is no downtime for it. You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure. This procedure needs to be repeated every six months or a year.
Ultherapy tightens and strengthens your loose skin without giving incisions and stitches. Instead, a focused ultrasound beam is used to lift your skin. Before going through the therapy, you have a lower eyebrow line, droopy lower eyelid, flat saggy cheeks, and loose skin of the neck. After Ultherapy, your skin looks glowing and rejuvenated, cheeks look healthy and plumped, and eyelids look lifted.
The procedure begins with cleaning your skin with an alcohol swab to kill any germs present at the spot. A specialized gel is applied to your skin. The focused ultrasound beam is used to produce thermal effects in the deeper layers of skin. The device is pressed firmly on to the skin of areas that needs strengthening. This induces new collagen production in these layers and gives firmness to the previous one. Ultrasound rays are applied over the areas where skin tightening is intended, such as the face and the neck. The time of procedure varies with the areas which are to be treated. It produces thermal effects which can be the cause of discomfort during the process. It lasts for a small period of time when the energy is being delivered into skin layers. This slight discomfort is a sign that the collagen-boosting process has been started.
Ultherapy takes 1 to 1.5 hours or more depending upon the dimensions of the area which is being treated. Since it is an outpatient procedure, you can leave for home on the same day of the treatment. However, you should plan to stay in South Africa for at least 5 days after your procedure. This will allow for the initial recovery and follow-up check-ups. Slight swelling and discomfort are normal during your stay. However, if it aggravates, there might be something wrong. Your health conditions are monitored during this duration.
As there is no downtime, you need not take any day off from work. You can get back to work immediately after the therapy. Minimal bruising is reported at the sites of Ultherapy where bones are present. This discomfort is for a small period of time. There might be tenderness and swelling in your skin which can last for one month after the procedure. 3 to 6 months are required for the results to become evident. Keep in mind that everyone continues to age and no process or treatment can stop aging. Therefore, the effects of Ultherapy subsides after a few years. Touch up treatments help to maintain its effects.
After going through Ultherapy, take care of the following points to look after you:
This therapy is almost always successful. Results vary and their time of appearance varies. Some people show more positive results while others show a moderate difference in their physical appearance. But it works on all. According to a study, 65% of the patients reported improvement in their skin quality after 2 to 8 months. While 67% seemed very satisfied with the results after only 3 months. The success of Ultherapy depends upon your genes and other factors too.
The following are some alternatives to Ultherapy:
All the techniques mentioned above are minimally invasive with almost no downtime, pain and incisions.
Overall, you will look younger than your actual age. But its effects last for only 12 to 15 months, after which you will need touch ups.
