BrandedUp in partnership with
Fashion designer and "It" mom Rosanna Ocampo-Rodriguez has always been a certified “no-frills” kind of girl.
A full-time working mom, she constantly juggles taking care of her family, tending to her collections, managing her successful business, and even traveling. But despite her fast-paced lifestyle, she makes sure to dedicate time in prioritizing her health to maintain her youthful glow.
Armed with just a few staples in her self-care and beauty routine, Rosanna doesn’t look a day older than 25, and looks as if she has just breezed into a new decade of her life even after two years of navigating the stresses of the pandemic. Her secret? She performs a once-a-year non-invasive skin procedure — Ultherapy® — that keeps her face lifted and defined for up to a year. As of 2022, two million other patients worldwide trust Ultherapy® for its effective, safe, and long-lasting results.
Rosanna, who just got her fourth Ultherapy® session with Dr. Aivee Teo at The Aivee Clinic in preparation for herd long-awaited and much-needed trip this summer, shares her journey with the procedure, and why she’s committed to this “no-frills” beauty ritual for four years and counting.
How did you first discover Ultherapy® four years ago?
There was a media blast for Ultherapy® happening, and I would see a lot of celebrities and friends getting it done. I got curious about it so I decided to try it myself. I’m a no-frills kind of girl. When it comes to skincare, I never liked the 10-step routine and it’s never been my thing. I’m a full-time working mom so it was always hard for me to commit to a treatment that needed regular maintenance. When Ultherapy® was casually presented to me, it appealed to me immediately because it’s a one-time procedure with no downtime. It’s just a “lunch” procedure, meaning, after 40 minutes I’m out and I’m able to attend my meetings and go back to work right away. And the results would last me really long—about a year minimum. So that was already a no-brainer for me. Once I’ve tried it, I never looked back.
What skin concerns have you faced during the past two years, and how does Ultherapy® address this?
I’m 41 now, and I started trying Ultherapy® before 40. Forty was a number that really scared me—that idea of entering into a new decade. I wanted to take preventive measures without doing anything invasive, and I saw the effects. he first time I tried Ultherapy®, the effects came after a few months. On the second time, the effects came at twp and a half months, which was much faster. And they explained to me that because I already tried Ultherapy® previously, the collagen in my face is already awake so it takes less time to stimulate it. I really missed that during the two-year pandemic, because I didn’t really want to go out of the house or risk myself for a treatment. So I saw the difference of NOT having Ultherapy®, too. I think my gap was about a year and six months — and I really saw that my jawline and my cheeks were starting to sag a bit, so I couldn’t wait for restrictions to lift to do the treatment again. I also noticed that I lost volume on my eyes, and upon consulting with Dr. Aivee Teo, she said that it was normal because I was exercising so much. That’s why now she recommended that I do the procedure under my eye every quarter. I just tried it last month, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results because I’ve never done it that frequently for my undereye.

Out of all the new skin-lifting treatments and devices available out there, why do you stay loyal to Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® allows me that liberty of having a super low maintenance routine. I do it once a year, and the results really stay long. It’s very important for me also, however, to go to a trusted doctor. Even before the pandemic, there were so many unaccredited clinics that were advertising on social media accounts — and they were pricing their treatments about the same (as the real one) or maybe a bit less— but the machines were fake. And because the face is something we all have to take care of, it’s totally important to go to an accredited doctor for this.
How did you feel after seeing the results of the treatment?
I was really surprised with how quickly the effects appeared compared to my first time — that’s almost half the time. I’m leaving (the country) next week, and I timed my treatment really a month before, because I know it kicks in faster now. This is actually my fourth, so I have complete confidence that it’s going to have even better results because I did the undereye, which is a new thing for me.
How important is it to invest in yourself and look your best once again with Ultherapy®?
I’ve recommended this treatment to so many friends already, and they have been very happy with the results, too. Some people are worried, more than anything, that it might be an invasive treatment, and I keep repeating that it’s not. I think a lot of people are still apprehensive of touching their face because they don’t want bad results. But because I’ve posted (treatment) videos, and I still think I look the same (post-procedure) — I was able to convince so many friends as well as family. Even some family members who don’t even live here. When they come, they go straight to the Aivee Clinic for Ultherapy® because they’ve been so amazed by the results. I’m very conscious of my square jawline, and I feel that Ultherapy® really helps make it look slimmer.
What would you advise those who are still looking for the right skin-lifting treatments out there, and are overwhelmed with all the choices available now?
I think that you really pay for the quality. The easiest way for me to convince other people to try Ultherapy® is that it lasts for a whole year. It’s the same as getting another one of those lifts that cost 10 grand a month.
