Prestige meets with three glamorous patients and their doctors to discuss the power of aesthetic treatments like Ultherapy, the only FDA-cleared non-invasive lift for the neck, chin, brow and décolletage area.
ASTY ANANTA & DR. YULIANA TJUA
“For me, it’s not about looking beautiful all the time, but about being healthy inside as well as outside,” says Asty Ananta, actress, TV host, singer and President Director of Infiny Care Foundation. “Having a glowing skin shows how happy, healthy and radiant we are, and that’s the best makeup ever. It’s important to take care of it, especially in a job where I have to meet a lot of people,”
She says she had rarely had any aesthetic treatments until she met dr. Yuliana Tjua, founder and practitioner of Yua Medical Aesthetic Clinic, who changed her perspective.
Says dr. Tjua: “The first time I met her I saw that she had a natural beauty. When she came to my clinic, I recommended her to have Vitamin C injections to brighten the skin. It took time to convince her because she was afraid of needles!”
Says Asty: “Finally, I agreed because she was very patient and made me feel comfortable.” Since then, Asty has entrusted herself to dr. Tjua for all skin treatments, including Ultherapy. “Both of us love to explore and learn about new things. dr. Tjua keeps updating me on the latest technologies. I was able to start Ultherapy a couple of months ago, and I fell in love with the results. My skin feels tighter, softer and healthier.
“Being so busy I need a safe treatment can help me to stay healthy and fresh, with no downtime. The first time I did the treatment, I went directly to work, hosting a show at one of the national TV stations within an hour.”
“Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin naturally by using ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production. And the treatment is popular because there’s almost no downtime,” explains dr. Tjua.
Since they met in 2016, dr. Tjua and Asty have gone beyond the doctor-patient relationship. “My doctor is my best friend whom I trust with my heart and soul,” Asty says. “She’s a caring person who never gets tired of learning and always gives of her best in what she does.”
For her part, dr. Tjua expresses her gratitude towards the actress. “I have known Asty for a long time. She’s a very detailed person and I have learned a lot from her. She is very supportive. In terms of my work, my patients are my number one priority. My satisfaction comes from making them happy.”
DONNA AGNESIA & DR. OLIVIA ONG
You know that ‘10-Year Challenge’? People commented on my Instagram page: “Why do you look prettier now than you did in 2009?” says Donna Agnesia, a veteran sports host. Sitting beside her is the Founder of Jakarta Aesthetic Clinic and Key Opinion Leader of Ultherapy for Indonesia, dr. Olivia Ong.
Regardless of her schedule, Donna, who is a mother of three and has a business in the insurance sector, always makes her family her number one priority.
At first, Donna was hesitant about getting aesthetic treatments but her trust in dr. Olivia made her feel comfortable. “I consulted with dr. Oliv, who was aware of my unique appearance and made a detailed treatment plan that I needed to undergo. She never forces or suggests a treatment that is unnecessary.”
dr. Olivia, who has guided Jakarta Aesthetic Clinic to winning International Awards for Combination Aesthetic Treatments 2 years in a row and has recently been taking her Master’s degree in Anti-Aging Medicine, feels very affectionate towards her patients. “The first time Donna came
to Jakarta Aesthetic Clinic, for sure people noticed her. I needed to be certain that the treatments were subtle when magnifying her beauty.”
Beforehand, Donna’s husband had told Donna that the treatment result must look natural. He did not want his wife’s face to change. “I wanted her to still look like Donna, but with a younger- looking appearance”. Donna adds, “My face has been a little problematic since pregnancy, also being affected by gravity and the aging process. It really needed some loving attention. I had to ensure that I went to the right clinic equipped with authentic Ultherapy machines and get treated properly by an experienced doctor to achieve optimal results.”
Dr. Olivia explained, “The face is a three- dimensional structure. There are multiple layers all the way to the bone. With Ultherapy, the doctor is able to look for the sources of collagen within the skin. There are different curves in human faces, and not every ‘collagen factory’ is at the same level. So we need to detect the appropriate layer before applying Ultherapy. The ultrasound creates heat and regenerates collagen. The skin will get tighter each month and become more supple.”
Donna is absolutely delighted with all the results. For her, dr. Olivia is her soul-mate when it comes to beauty.
LISA GUNAWAN & DR. LANNY JUNIARTI
“I have never liked having injections when it comes to aesthetic treatment,” says Surabaya-based model and influencer Lisa Gunawan. “Then I met dr. Lanny Juniarti in June 2016, and she introduced me to Ultheraphy.”
Says dr. Juniarti, co-founder and President Director of Miracle Clinic: “I’ve known Lisa for quite a long time and I understand that she is very careful with everything, especially when choosing the right treatments. At her senior age, she prefers minimal or non-invasive treatments.
“Ultherapy is an advanced technology that uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery or downtime. The ultrasound stimulates the collagen and is able to reach layers deep in the skin. The depth is controlled and precise to make the results of the treatment last longer.”
“The procedure is not painful at all because we use anaesthetic cream to make the skin numb. It takes 45 minutes to one hour, depending on the area treated. It’s really suitable for Lisa with her busy schedule because she can continue her daily activities without any side effects, such as redness or swollen. She even can wear makeup afterwards.
“Lisa has had the treatment once a year for three years, plus touch-ups on the eyes, which are her main concern. Ultheraphy is designed for long- term results, so it’s not suitable for those who want instant change. Collagen stimulation takes about two months, which is very natural.”
The results are progressive, and Lisa expresses her satisfaction. “It’s amazing. Overall my skin is getting tight, soft and glowing. The small wrinkles have disappeared. I have made several great decisions in my life, and choosing Ultherapy is one of them.”
Three years ago, Lisa, mother of a daughter and grandmother of two, and dr Juniarti met as patient and doctor. As time went on, they became friends. “dr Lanny is an important person for me,” says Lisa. “She takes care of me very well and is a person I can rely on.”
Says dr. Lanny: “I treatall my patients as more than just someone who asks for treatment. Each of them is precious. When a patient like Bu Lisa feels happy with the results and with herself, then she can continue to spread positivity. For me, Lisa is not just a friend, but also a senior. I have learned a lot from her.”
