Kuala Lumpur, 2 May 2013 – Malaysians can now “defy gravity” without having to resort to surgery. Ultherapy® – a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin on the brow, neck and chin – was introduced to Malaysians by Mr. Jimmy Ang, Managing Director NeoAsia (M) Sdn Bhd together with Dr Michael Howard Gold, renowned dermatologist from United States of America.
The Ulthera® System is the first and only energy-based device to receive FDA clearance for a noninvasive aesthetic lift indication. It is used in a face and neck procedure known as Ultherapy®; which utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.
The treatment, which takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes, is suitable for Malaysians aged 30 and above who have sagging skin on the face and neck areas. This non-surgical skin lifting treatment has no downtime thus allowing patients to continue on with their daily activities right after undergoing the treatment.
Patients will be able to see the results of Ultherapy® over the course of two to three months and the improvement will continue for up to six months including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline and on the brow. Furthermore, it has been reported that patients are able to enjoy the results of Ultherapy® for more than a year following the procedure.
According to Dr. Michael Howard Gold, the convenience of Ultherapy® has made it a very popular treatment among his patients back home “I have patients from the age of 30 coming in to my clinics seeking minor skin lifts around their face. Surgery does not appeal to them; they want to look younger without any cutting, time-off work or substantial investment. I am certain that there are Malaysians who share the same sentiment so Ultherapy® is the ideal solution for them. Just think of it as getting a skin lift over your lunch break”.
“The launch of Ultherapy® marks a significant milestone in our local aesthetic and beauty industry. Not only have we launched a breakthrough technology that will help Malaysian women and men achieve younger looking skin but it is also done in a natural and safe way. NeoAsia (M) Sdn Bhd is honoured that Ulthera® has entrusted us to become the sole distributor for Ultherapy® in Malaysia,” said Mr. Jimmy Ang.
As the only FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure available in the market currently, Ultherapy® has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not prepared for surgery.
