Non surgical lifting and fat reduction
“Ultra-lift Uses time tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery or down time.”
The Ultra-lift procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Saggy and droopy are one hallmark of facial aging.
One sign of aging is when your skin starts to droop and sag. This happens because, over time, our skin and soft tissues are pulled down by gravity. You might notice changes such as your once-high baby-like cheeks moving lower. This can make under-eye bags look bigger, smile lines appear deeper, and the soft part of your cheeks sag down to cover your jawline, which changes the look of your once strong and firm jawline to a saggy one.
Non surgical face lifting : a non invasive answering
For people who wish to avoid undergoing a face and neck lift, perhaps to prevent surgical complications such as scarring and infection, non-surgical facelift procedures are the ideal solution for treating and preventing skin laxity and drooping issues without the need for surgery.
Ultrasound lifting how does it work ?
Ultrasound lifting works by sending ultrasound energy beneath your skin, targeting the same layer that plastic surgeons typically cut and sew during a facelift procedure. However, in non-surgical facelifts with ultrasound energy, there is no cutting or sewing. Instead, ultrasound energy is directed to create thousands of tiny injuries in that layer. When your body recognizes these minor injuries, the healing process begins, leading to the production of new collagen. As a result, your skin becomes firmer and lifted due to the new collagen.
Unlike filler, thread lifting or botulinum toxin, Ultra-lift creates one’s own new collagen and elastin naturally, safety, effectively and is longer lasting.
The machine we use:
In the market, there are different types of machines for facelifts. At Revival Clinic, we prefer using ultrasound lifting because it can deliver energy effectively to the deeper skin layers we target without harming the top skin layer. This is unlike other methods like RF (radio frequency), which heats the skin from the top down and may potentially damage the surface before reaching the deeper layers needed for collagen production.In addition to being an effective method, we also focus on your comfort. That's why we've invested in the latest machine to ensure the best results with as little discomfort as possible.
The treatment offers more than just facial lifting. It also enhances skin tone, facial contours, and alleviates subjective symptoms like skin tightness or tension.
• Improves skin firmness in the jawline, cheek, peri-oral area, and neck.
• Reduces fat under the chin and tightens the area.
• Creates a firmer jawline and well-defined facial contours.
• Reduces naso-labial folds and enhances under-eye profiles.
• Proactively prevents facial sagging caused by gravity and collagen degeneration.
Gentlemen, kindly ensure a clean shave of your facial and neck beard, ensuring it is as close to your skin as possible.
Contraindications for the treatment:
Ultrasound lifting is generally suitable for everyone, as we all experience the effects of gravity, which can lead to varying degrees of skin sagging. However, there are some individuals who should avoid this treatment, including:
• Pregnant individuals: While ultrasound is a localized treatment, it hasn't been extensively studied in pregnant people. Therefore, we recommend waiting until after delivery.
• Individuals with open wounds in the treatment area.
• Individuals with metal implants in the treatment area.

After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, The doctor will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 30-40 minutes.
Our Secret to Success: Achieving Better Results with No Risk
Each treatment comprises three critical components that significantly influence the attainment of optimal results.
We meticulously craft our treatment guidelines and emphasize to all our customers the importance of collaborative efforts in achieving desired results.
1. Machine Selection: We carefully choose a type of energy that penetrates deep into the smaz layer, coupled with an effective cooling method. This not only shields your skin from excessive heat but also minimizes any discomfort.
2. Treatment Guideline: Our doctors have been trained using the same detailed treatment guideline that is designed for optimal results in both the short term and long term. The number of shots and energy settings will be customized to help you achieve the most effective outcome while preserving your youthful facial volume. Our focus is on elevating the midface to enhance the under-eye area and reduce smile lines, as well as contouring the jawline to create a strong and firm profile while minimizing under-chin fat. When treating the neck, we take special care to avoid the thyroid gland to safeguard its proper function.
3. Patient Factors: The fundamental idea behind non-surgical facelifts is to trigger the production of your body's own new collagen. Therefore, aftercare plays a vital role in influencing the results. Picture two individuals receiving the same treatment, using the same machine and energy. If one person has poor health, inadequate nutrition, heavy smoking, and a high level of skin damage due to sun exposure, they will naturally achieve less favorable results than the person who maintains good nutrition and overall health. How you take care of yourself after the treatment is crucial and will directly impact the outcome. After each treatment session, the process of generating new collagen will persist for a minimum of 6 months. To enhance this process, please follow these tips:
How often should I undergo ultrasound lifting
We generally recommend undergoing this treatment 1-2 times per year, depending on your skin quality and lifestyle. Additionally, you can opt for a top-up treatment before a significant event, given its immediate effectiveness. Our approach is always customized to address both short-term beauty needs and long-term safety, aiming to preserve your youthful facial fat and delay skin laxity.
Tips to Boost Collagen Production After Treatment:
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is essential for synthesizing hyaluronic acid, a key component for skin health. Without sufficient vitamin C, your body won't fully benefit from foods containing hyaluronic acid. Boost your vitamin C intake by consuming foods like oranges, red peppers, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and strawberries. You can also consider vitamin C supplements.
Collagen Supplements: Taking collagen supplements can internally promote collagen production. When collagen is broken down into collagen peptides, your body can absorb it more effectively. These peptides stimulate fibroblasts, which support collagen and elastin production. Clinical trials show that collagen supplements enhance skin elasticity and hydration.
Limit Refined Carbohydrates: Refined carbohydrates are quickly metabolized into sugar in the body. Excess sugar damages collagen fibers, making them challenging to repair. This process leads to the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), contributing to premature skin aging.
Protect from UV Radiation: Excessive UV radiation is harmful to your skin. UV rays generate free radicals that can interfere with collagen properties. This extensive damage leads to wrinkles and skin laxity due to impaired skin cell responses.
Quit Smoking: Smoking negatively impacts collagen through the immune system. Tobacco smoke reduces the immune response and triggers an enzyme called metalloproteinase, which breaks down collagen. This damage affects both collagen and elastin, leading to loose and sagging skin.
Get Adequate Sleep: Quality sleep is crucial for healthy skin. Sleep deprivation increases oxidative stress, reduces antioxidant defenses, and raises cortisol (stress hormone) levels, which can break down collagen.
Add Antioxidants: Incorporate more antioxidants to protect your collagen-producing cells and prevent skin aging. You can do this through oral supplements, increased consumption of vegetables, or high-dose antioxidant IV therapy.
How long for the down time?
When I can see the result?
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Part of the fun of having Ultra-lift is waiting for the results to appear. Although you’re likely not to see a dramatic or noticeable change right away, plenty of people do notice a subtle improvement in their skin’s laxity and firmness a day or so after treatment.
Otherwise, many patients describe the process of waiting for results to appear as watching the hands of a clock turn backward. It can take as long as four months before the final results from Ultra-lift appear. Each day that you wake up, or every week or so, you might glance in the mirror and notice that one area looks a little more toned or a little firmer.
It takes a while for final results to appear after treatment because your body is working to produce more collagen. The ultrasound energy kick-starts the production of collagen, which naturally diminishes with age. As more and more of the protein is produced, the skin has more support and sagging diminishes.
How long for the down time?
When I can see the result?
Collagen production resulting from the treatment can offer long-term benefits. However, the aging process is inevitable as time goes on. The duration of these benefits is closely tied to your lifestyle choices. A healthy lifestyle, characterized by lower stress levels, sufficient sleep, a well-rounded diet, and the avoidance of strong UV exposure and smoking, can significantly extend the longevity of these results. We advise considering an ultrasound lifting procedure every 6 months to a year for optimal maintenance.
