I'm Still in My 20s... Is Ultherapy for Me?
I see signs of aging creeping up on my face. Not wrinkled and gaunt like an old lady, but fine lines on the eye area, dark eye circles, and mild sagginess of what used to be cute baby cheeks—the early signs of aging of a woman in her 20s.

We often think that chasing after collagen is something that only the middle-aged can relate to. It is so easy to ignore all those talks on anti-aging creams and laser treatments in the pantry just because we can still confidently say that we are too young for that. Is that true? Should we start taking care of our skin only when we are much older?
A poll was carried out among our readers on whether Ultherapy is only meant for people 50 years and above. Here are the results:
Thankfully, our readers are a well-informed lot. Although anti-aging treatments, like Ultherapy, is great for the older age group to tighten loose skin, it is also a great maintenance tool for the younger ones in their 20s and 30s. Using focused ultrasound, Ultherapy is the only non-invasive and no downtime US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) therapy used to treat skin laxity and encourage collagen production to slow down the aging process. In fact, it is never too early to start a maintenance strategy to extend your youthful looks by looking at ways to generate collagen growth. And what’s more, Ultherapy can be used for spot treatments, treating specific areas that are starting to show signs of aging or which are bothering you. For instance, Ultherapy can be used for a brow lift as well as treat:
– Crows’ feet
– Wrinkles and sagging skin around their eyes
– Drooping jowls
Ultherapy for the 20s and 30s
Always consult a doctor before carrying out any treatment, and make sure that a qualified medical expert is doing the treatment for you. Although Ultherapy is suitable for both the young and the old, the area that a doctor decides to treat may be different. For a lady in her 40s and above, a doctor may suggest a full face Ultherapy for overall lifting. But for a young adult in her 20s or 30s, a doctor may just want to target the eye bags, jawline, or jowls. For audience both young and mature, Ultherapy can also be paired with other complementary therapies to achieve more dramatic results. For instance, Botox can be paired with Ultherapy brow lift for longer, lasting effect.
“Many people think of Ultherapy as a skin tightening treatment for the whole face but they don’t realize that this therapy is great for targeted treatment to address small problematic areas on the face,” says Dr. Terence Tan, Director of Halley Medical Aesthetics.
