High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a technique that helps to tighten and rejuvenate skin; it stimulates the production of collagen in the skin via ultrasound energy. The Ulthera provides a non-invasive treatment to improve skin aesthetics. Premier Clinic’s Ultherapy skin tightening treatments offer noticeable results minus the discomfort.
The Ulthera machine utilises ultrasound technology for this non-invasive procedure and is a safe and effective technique. Ultrasound energy bypasses the skin’s surface without causing damage at just the right depth and temperature. This triggers a response from the skin which then naturally produces fresh collagen which is needed to regain and retain its elasticity. In addition, it also makes use of ultrasound imaging which helps doctors to view the tissue layers of the patient, ensuring that the areas in need of most treatment will be attended to for optimum results.
Only one treatment session is required to rejuvenate your skin; you may notice an immediate improvement in your skin after the session. Although, it is more likely that the progressive results will become more apparent over the next few months. This gives the collagen time to take effect over your skin, tightening it to reduce wrinkles and signs of aging in the areas treated.
Ultherapy is on the trending skin tightening treatment in Malaysia that promote noticeable skin rejuvenation without having surgery. The outcome of Ultherapy treatment is both natural and long-lasting. It is designed to lift, tighten and tone sagging skin on the face and around the eyes as well as on the neck and chest. The ultrasound imaging allows the doctor to visualise the lower layer of the skin which helps the doctor target the heat directly to the precise locations that are in most need of improvement.

As you age, the collagen that binds your skin together will begin decreasing. This results in skin drooping and becoming saggy, losing its plumpness. The effects of the sun and gravity on your skin will also be more apparent to the naked eye as your facial muscles lose its strength. This comes about as a result of the loss of collagen and elastin – the key component needed to maintain your skin’s structure.
Ultherapy skin tightening treatment will trigger collagen and elastin production. The skin will gradually lift and tighten loose skin leaving firmer and younger-looking.
Eye bags and under-eye wrinkles or dark circles are a natural part of aging, and is very common among individuals over the age of 20. One of the reasons eye bags begin to develop is simply down to genetics – this cannot be prevented and will occur naturally after a certain age.
Other common factors that contribute to eye bags and under-eye imperfections include a lack of sleep and exercise, a diet high in salt and excessive water retention. This stretches the skin beneath your eyes and leads to the formation of wrinkles or dark circles. In addition, fat in the face is held together by ligaments and muscles, but they weaken with age, leading to sagging which makes the fat more visible.
Besides helping with sagging on the face, Ultherapy also helps diminish the appearance of eye bags or wrinkles under the eyes. By tightening the skin under the eyes, the eye bags become less noticeable. Combining this Hifu treatment with dermal fillers gives even better results for eyebags.

Creases and folds in the skin tend to develop as you age. It is a natural, unavoidable process due to the skin losing collagen. Other factors that contribute to this include facial expressions, sun damage or dehydration. The lack of collagen lessens the skin’s elasticity, resulting in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Ultherapy skin lifting treatment will trigger a repair process that strengthens existing and new produces collagen. New collagen formation deep below the skin’s surface will improve lines and wrinkles by providing more volume to the skin.
