Ageing is unavoidable and no matter which lotion or potion you apply on your face, unless you take professional help you are most likely to develop the signs of ageing. The ‘magical’ creams and lotions that claim to make you look almost a decade younger do not do much except delay the ageing slightly. According to the best dermatologists of India, regular application of sunscreen does help in delaying ageing and preventing skin cancer. So, now the question is, if you want to reverse the ageing and look young again in a very short time, is there any magic wand to do so? The answer is yes! Today, there are various treatments available that not only make you look younger in a very short time but also do not interfere with your busy life. One such treatment that is available in India today is Ultherapy which is a HIFU treatment.
What is HIFU?
The term HIFU is an abbreviation for High Intensity focused Ultrasound. HIFU has changed the cosmetic medicine forever. It is considered to be a breakthrough in non- surgical face lift procedures as focused ultrasound waves can reach far deeper inside the layer of skin thereby producing radical results which were previously believed to be only possible with surgery. HIFU goes beyond the dermis and the waves penetrate the skin at higher temperature. As the tissues are heated in a HIFU treatment, collagen production is stimulated along with healing of the damaged tissues. Therefore, amazing progressive results are observed even after 90 days of undergoing HIFU.
What are the difference types of HIFU treatments available today?
- Doublo: – Doublo is a non- invasive skin rejuvenation system which utilizes HIFU technology. It has the capacity to reach very deep into the skin without causing any irritation in the process. As the focused ultrasound waves pass through several skin layers, tissue contraction is caused due to creation of thermal coagulation zones within the skin. The energy get deposited in such pockets which trigger’s body’s response towards regeneration and healing.
- HIFU-Pro: – It is non – surgical face lift and rejuvenation system that can decrease the treatment time by half. Making use of HIFU, the HIFU- Pro can reach the superficial muscular aponeurotic system and dermis to precisely reach the tissues which are in need for rejuvenation. HIFU- Pro system carries very minor scope of error because it can be pre- programmed with specific parameters making the entire treatment absolutely safe.
- Sygmalift: – One of the latest inventions which have taken the anti- ageing treatment scenario by storm is Sygmalift. Sygmalift combines HIFU with laser making it one of the most potent treatment options available today. The transducer in Sygmalift is linear which allows it to emit linear waves which are able to hit the target much more deeply. Because of the shape of the transducer, the energy is also accumulated in a linear pattern in the skin tissues. Skin tissues begin to regenerate themselves in less than a month.
- Ultherapy: –Ultherapy is an anti- ageing treatment which is non surgical and completely non- invasive. Ultherapy practically has zero recovery down time and utilizes ultrasound frequency to treat those nasty wrinkles and fine lines on your face and neck. The Ultherapy treatment involves the basic principle of tissue regeneration which is the response of human body in case it senses degeneration of tissues due to external factors. Skin rejuvenation treatment by Ultherapy boosts the production of collagen in skin. The ultrasound frequency that is used in Ultherapy treatment is completely controllable and therefore the exact amount of the frequency that needs to be controlled for each layer of skin tissues is decide by the doctor performing the treatment. During the Ultherapy treatment the doctor is able to see in real time whether the targeted tissues are getting the adequate amount of radiation or not. Since the treatment by Ultherapy is a non- surgical one, you should not expect radical results from this treatment like one would expect from a surgical face lift. However, the results from Ultherapy are wonderful because the patient’s own skin gets rejuvenated due to boosted production of collagen.
Are Ultherapy and laser treatment of skin the same thing?
The Ultherapy treatment may sound similar to laser treatment however there is a difference between the two. Ultherapy uses ultrasound frequencies while laser uses laser light. Ultherapy can reach through deeper layers of skin which is not possible by laser treatment. In Ultherapy there is no need for any gel or creams.
What is the duration of one session of Ultherapy?
A single session of treatment by Ultherapy for the complete face and the neck may take between an hour and half.
When will the results become visible after the treatment?
You will be able to see minor changes in the skin immediately after the treatment; however, the full set of changes may be visible after around two months.
Things to know before getting Ultherapy treatment in India:-
Ultherapy surely is one the best non invasive treatments ever but as we mentioned earlier this treatment is done by using controlled amounts of ultrasound frequency on the body. Though the Ultherapy treatment is simple it still has the potential to go horribly wrong because if the amount of ultrasound frequency is not controlled it can damage the skin tissues forever. In India, Ultherapy is now a common procedure and performed in cosmetic clinics in all major cities like Mumbai. But the services provided even by some the best cosmetic clinics in Mumbai are questionable. One of the top reasons of the patient dissatisfaction in Mumbai is lack of any result after the Ultherapy treatment. Many patients in Mumbai have complained that even after several sessions of Ultherapy treatment there were no noticeable changes in the skin. Similarly, patients from the rest of India are also complaining about the ineffectiveness of Ultherapy. One very important thing to know is that there is no problem in the Ultherapy technique but in its execution in India. In India, untrained people are carrying out this procedure on innocent patients and therefore the exact results are not being obtained by the Ultherapy treatment. Therefore, most of the clinics in Mumbai which have Ultherapy treatment do not cure as many patients as are treated by Dr. Shome. Dr. Shome is the head of The Esthetic Clinics in Mumbai each of which is dedicated to cosmetic specialty. His ideas and concept for bringing about a medical revolution in India have led him into making his clinics the most superiorly equipped and medically advanced cosmetic clinics in India. In Mumbai, he annually treats hundreds of people including celebrities as well who want to undo the effects of ageing from their faces and neck. Ultherapy is an affordable procedure and because of its effect and the cost it is becoming increasingly popular in India. Dr. Shome personally ensures that all the equipment which is used for doing Ultherapy in his Mumbai clinics are in the top order so that his patients can get the best results from the treatment. India is now one of the top markets for anti- ageing treatments as well as cosmetic products and this is the reason why more and more anti- ageing techniques are being brought to India. Dr. Shome constantly tries to get the best developments from the world of cosmetology to India so that all of his patients from Mumbai and the rest of India do not feel the need to go anywhere else to get the latest treatments. His clinics in Mumbai have the state-of-the- art machinery and best facilities and every patient at his Mumbai clinics is treated like nothing less than a celebrity. The changing face of cosmetic treatment in Mumbai is because of Dr. Shome. He is a trailblazer in the world of cosmetic medicine and because of him all the patients from India now can get the top Ultherapy treatment in Mumbai itself. Best and affordable healthcare for all is the top agenda of Dr. Shome and his work in Mumbai and other parts if the country is a proof of how motivated he is towards his top goal. Mumbai is his base and soon he has plans to take his best endeavors outside of Mumbai as well.
