Updated: Dec 13, 2020
The Lunchtime lift at Dr Nasser Madi Medicine Esthetique
If you are like me and you prefer beauty procedures that will allow you to keep your beauty the most natural way, then you must read this article to the end.
I have been recently invited to Nasser Madi Medicine Esthetique to explorer what kind of treatments I could try to create more youthful look. Doctor Nasser Madi has a tremendous knowledge about his métier and his clinic offers some state-of-the-art treatments including revolutionary Ultharepy by Merz Aesthetics. When I heard about the “non-surgical facelift” I knew straight away that it's the treatment that I would like to try.
But most of your will ask first....
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy it's not so well-know treatment, but it's already loved by many, like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jenniffer Aniston or Vanessa Williams and more and more women in the world are fans of it. This treatments is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that helps to fights the effects of gravity on the skin. It is an alternative to a facelift. It uses body’s response to gently and over the time lift skin on the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck or on the décolletage. Ultherapy stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deep layers of the skin through microfocused ultrasound energy. There is a thermal effect created under the skin, the heat is aimed at different depths, affecting muscle, skin and superficial wrinkles.
The energy delivered by the ultrasounds from the inside to the outside allows the energy to pass through the surface of the skin without damaging it. Ulthrasound reaches depth of 4.5 mm (much more than lasers and radiofrequency) to create more youthful look. There is no surgery or downtown, the effect is gradual and Results are long-lasting .This Technology is FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved.
My experience and the whole procedure.
Before I arrived to Dr Nasser Madi's clinic I was asked to take inflammatory table 1 hour before. When I arrived the doctor's assistant removed my make-up, took pictures in the mini studio for before and after part and applied a numbing cream on my chin, jaw and upper neck area.
Later doctor showed me a diagram which explains areas of my face will be treated and told me how to manage the pain. Procedure started with the scanning and I was able to see everything on the monitor. My face was treated on 2 levels: 3 mm and 4,5mm, which I was told that will be first one to start as the deeper layer is more painful.
Every person has a different level of pain and during this treatment I have realized that I am very sensitive to the pain and I needed an additional pain-relief injection and nitrous oxygen mask. Doctor explained to me that this is very individual part and many patients don't need so much support, in some cases pain-killers and numbing cream is enough. Which is your pain level you will most likely find out during the procedure, but as I always say, women can take a lot to be beautiful, and with all the pain-relief support, pain was manageable.
It took between 60-90 min, so it's very standard time, I would say it's a lunchtime treatment.
During the procedure, both doctor and the nurse were very helpful and explained everything to me. I could also see the progress of the treatment on the screen just next to me. First, ultrasound gel was applied and then the Ultherapy applicator was placed against my skin, and doctor was using ultrasound imaging viewer to see deep within. As my skin is very sensitive, in order to calm it down a face mask was applied as the last step of the procedure. I felt a great deal of relief after it the cooling mask and I have also been instructed what I can expect within next few days and how to treat my skin. Doctor Nasser Madi was also very kind and offered me a cooling mask so I could apply at home generously, which later on was my life-saver.
After the treatment. I had a mild redness and tingling just after I left the treatment room, but it was not to visible so I get on with my activities as usual. The next day I have notices a swelling and more tenderness in the treated areas and these effects I could see on my skin for about 1 week.
That's the most important part of any treatment, but what is different in case of Ultherapy is that it takes time to see the results. However I must say that I have notice already a positive difference in my skin after a week, I have also received many complements saying that I look younger and I am giving this credits to Ultherepy. Having said that, the real results will be visible 1 to 3 months after the treatment. Then I will also have a control and reaped the pictures and upload them over here, so you could see before and after difference. What is amazing about results of this treatment is that they are gradual, subtle and refined. They will give natural look and not over-done and over-corrected. Looking as natural as possible is most important for me. Results of Ultherapy are permanent, of course skin will be aging, but it will be much slower process than it would be without this treatment.
You are surely thinking about this part since the beginning for the article, such a revolutionary treatment, that gives natural results and all celebrities love it, can't surely be cheap. You are right, it's a bit more pricey treatment, but it's totally worth it. Price start from 900 Chf (1 part) to 3800 chf for the full face.
It's always so important to know that you are in the good hands when it comes to the beauty treatments, that is why I came to Dr Nasser Madi's clinic. Many of my friends already has their treatments done in his clinic and they strongly recommended him as a professional, compassionate and friendly doctor. Philosophy of his practice is: "to focus on non-invasive (nonsurgical) aesthetic medicine, that is part of medical and technological advances, also patience want to go to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, with the least possible social downtime. Dr Nasser MADI and his team wished to have a place on a human scale, where the most requested non-invasive aesthetic treatments could be offered in a professional setting with a personalized welcome."
They have a wide range of treatments apart of Ultherapy, for example hyaluronic acid and botulinum toxin injections, PRP, mesotherapy, laser treatmetns, radifrequeny, but also famous Parisian brand's Biologique Recherche treatments.
Was Ultherapy worth it? YES. I already see results after only 1 week of treatment, my face is more contoured and lifted. I will upload before and after pictures in around 2 or 3 months, so you could see the difference.
The procedure is recommended for all skin types, and there’s no preparation required before the procedure. All you need to do is to arrange a consultation with Dr Nasser Madi to find out if Ultherapy is the perfect treatment for you and wait to see natural and gradual results and prolonging our beauty and aging slower.
