3D Multidimensional Face Lift Programme is a facial slimming, skin tightening and skin lifting treatment specially designed to combine the best of both worlds – a high intensity focused ultrasound treatment, followed by fractional radiofrequency energy treatment.
Ultherapy and Genius: Combination therapy for maximum results
Both treatment modalities work to tighten and lift the skin by using heat to stimulate collagen, albeit in different ways.
Ultherapy is a FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses focused ultrasound to lift, tone and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, chin and décolletage. The procedure targets the deep layers of the skin under the fat layer (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, or SMAS, at the 4.5mm tissue depth) to produce skin contraction for lifting, and collagen production for long term anti-ageing effects.
On the other hand, Genius is a micro-needling treatment which harnesses radiofrequency energy to produce controlled volumetric tissue coagulation. It is an energy-based device that also accurately and safely volumizes by stimulating the patient’s own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid levels at the same time, instead of having to use traditional injectables. Hence it is very suitable for patients who desire more volume in their face but are not keen for fillers.
Both treatments are mutually complementary, as Ultherapy seeks to rejuvenate and lift the skin from deep within (4.5mm, 3.0mm, 1.5mm) while Genius further enhances this improvement by volumizing and tightening the skin further at the more superficial skin layers.
What can you expect from the treatment?
Improvement can be seen in the first few days, but will continue to be most evident at the 3- month mark, when the collagen stimulation process is complete.
What are the side effects and downtime?
Side effects of the treatment are usually mild in nature. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that does not break the skin. You may feel some heat during the treatment. If your skin is sensitive, you may experience some mild redness and swelling. These side effects should resolve on its own within 24 hours.
You may experience pinpoint bleeding with some bruising after Genius treatment. If your skin is sensitive, you may experience some swelling for up to 2 weeks. Most people should notice the side effects to subside within 3 to 4 days.
