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

    What you need to know about Wrinkle Treatment in South Africa

    Wrinkle Treatment, Before and After

    Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. Currently, it is the only least invasive method approved by the FDA to tighten your loose skin. In this method, a focused ultrasound beam is used to boost collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. Collagen is a natural protein that has different types. It gives firmness and tightness to your skin. As we grow old, this protein loses its strength and firmness and show laxity. This procedure gives its strength back.

    Facelift leaves scars and has other associated risks such as nerve damage, clot formation, etc. However, its results are more obvious. Ultherapy requires plenty of time to make its effects visible. Also, more sessions are needed to maintain its effects. It strengthens loose skin of your face and neck and nullifies the effects of aging on your face. It has an advantage that there is no downtime for it. You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure. This procedure needs to be repeated every 6 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 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.

    What does a Wrinkle Treatment Procedure Involve?

    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 including face and neck, where skin tightening is intended. 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.

    How Long Should I Stay in South Africa for a Wrinkle Treatment Procedure?

    This procedure takes 1 to 1.5 hours or more depending upon the dimensions of the area which is being treated. It is an outpatient procedure. You can leave for home on the same day after the treatment. However, you should plan to stay in South Africa for at least 10 days after your Procedure, this will allow for the initial recovery and follow-up check-ups and etc. Slight swelling and discomfort are normal. However, if it aggravates, there might be something wrong. Your health conditions are monitored during this duration.

    What's the Recovery Time for Wrinkle Treatment Procedures in South Africa?

    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. A person continues to age, no process or treatment can stop aging. Therefore, the effects of Ultherapy subsides after a few years. Maintenance is needed. Touch up treatments help to maintain its effects.

    After going through Ultherapy, take care of the following points to look after you:

    • Avoid contact with direct sunlight for 2 to 3 months after this therapy. At the first place do not go outside in day time. If it is necessary, wear a strong sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful rays of light.

    • Do not massage and rub your skin for at least 1 to 2 weeks. It can aggravate redness and irritation in your skin.
    • Cover yourself properly when going out after the procedure.
    • Moisturize your skin twice or thrice a day. Use a moisturizer prescribed by your doctor.
