Getting a Lift With Ultherapy

Say goodbye to saggy skin with the beauty of ultrasound at Halley Medical Aesthetics.


Technological advances have enabled man to escape the pull of earth’s gravity. We’re able to simulate weightlessness and even manipulate the force of gravity which has lead to milestone achievements, for example, in flight and space travel. But still as with everything else, gravity always wins.

When it comes to our skin, sagging to a certain extent is often seen as the effects of gravity’s pull. The main cause of sagging skin is aging. With age, the skin loses collagen and elastin. Elastin is the skin’s supportive connective tissue which is responsible for its soft and youthful appearance. Prolonged exposure to the sun is a main factor behind the loss of this elasticity. Facial muscles weaken with age as well, leading to a saggy and aged appearance.

Facelifts have been the choice treatment and most times offers the only hope for many plagued with sagging skin. Though it is an effective solution, choosing the right facelift procedure will determine whether you’ll achieve your desired outcome or end up looking worse off than before you began. There are plenty of facelifts gone awry stories and examples on the internet; especially those involving celebrities and other famous people.

Here’s how botched facelifts can ruin lives…




Donatella Versace, Jocelyn Wildenstein and Latoya Jackson are just some examples of going a little too over enthusiastic with facelifts. The men are not spared as well, just look at Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson, Mickey Rourke and Las Vegas superstar Wayne Newton. Facelifts are supposed to help tighten the skin, leaving a natural uplifted look but clearly in the examples given, they seem to end up on the other end of the natural-looking spectrum.

Irene, a beautiful beauty blogger from Moonberry recently underwent Ultherapy. She said, “I'm too young for a facelift, but no longer young to have naturally taut tight skin. I sometimes notice the shadow of what's going to eventually become marionette lines (lines that run straight downwards from the corners of the mouth) and while people commonly use fillers to correct that, there's surely a more effective and longer-lasting solution than fillers?”


Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone and tighten loose skin. The treatment differs from conventional lasers as it bypasses the surface of the skin and delivers energy to the deepest layers of the skin. This renders Ultherapy a more attractive option in the treatment of sagging skin issues.
