“Youth comes but once in a lifetime” said Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Everyone experiences youth only once in our lives. It often forms the best period of one’s life. Hence, we are always trying to find ways to extend our youth for as long as we can.

Many of us try to find the elixir of youth to prevent aging, yet many do not want to undergo plastic surgery. For one, plastic surgery is expensive. Secondly, plastic surgery carries some surgical risks. Thirdly, results of plastic surgery can sometimes look unnatural.

When non-surgical skin tightening treatments were first launched in the market, they faced several limitations. In the earlier days, treatments were ineffective because the waves could not penetrate deep into the tissue. There were also short-lasting treatments that had to be repeated too regularly for an effective lift.

We speak with Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics to understand what effective treatments are available to prolong youth.


Ultherapy Skin Lifting is the only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for the purpose of skin lifting. It uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to tighten and lift sagging skin on the brow, neck, and décolletage.

Ultherapy emits HIFU of up to 4.5mm deep into the skin to heat up the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS). Ultherapy is an effective non-invasive skin lifting treatment because the ultrasound waves target the SMAS layer, which is the same layer that plastic surgeons work on when they perform a surgical facelift.

It works by delivering consistent heat of up to 70°C to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. By doing so, the treatment encourages natural skin lifting effects through all of its layers naturally.

Because the treatment works by stimulating your own body to produce more collagen and elastin fibers, full results can only be seen after 2-3 months after the treatment.

Alternatively, there is also another skin lifting treatment that uses HIFU technology to lifting sagging skin.


In the last few years, non-surgical facelift treatments have surged in popularity because of its visible results and convenience to undergo the treatment.

These threads used in non-surgical facelift treatments are absorbable and compatible with the human body. They are lined with barbs or anchors to lift sagging skin. For example, Silhouette Soft Thread Lift uses threads that are made of Polylactic Acid monofilament. It is a key material for surgical sutures drug delivery systems. On the other hand, PDO Thread Lift uses threads that are made of Polydioxanone.

Because of its short treatment time, thread lifts are commonly referred to as ‘lunchtime facelift’. You can be in and out of the doctor’s office in about 90 minutes – looking refresher and rejuvenated.

Non-surgical facelift treatments achieve two beneficial outcomes:

• Visibly lifting the skin to achieve a sharper, V-shaped face
• Stimulation of collagen and elastin fibers to restore lost volume and plump up the face

As with all treatments at Radium Medical Aesthetics, they are carefully designed by Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, to make the results even more outstanding.
