Ultherapy, an Uplift not a facelift

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. It works by bypassing the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and temperature to stimulate collagen growth. Often referred to as a non-surgical facelift, Ultherapy is the only procedure of its kind to be approved under the rigorous standards of the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). 

It’s a great treatment if you’re looking to lift and tighten areas such as the face, neck and upper chest, but you’re not quite ready for surgery.

How does the Ultherapy procedure work?

 

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin.Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, Ulthera SystemUltherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen is produced. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively on the face, neck and chest.

As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows your practitioner to plan where the energy will be directed.
This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat to just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, all the while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed.
Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.

awardWhat kind of result can I expect?

 

With just one treatment, the regenerative process is initiated, but the full effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months. Some patients may benefit from more than one treatment. Visible effects include a lifting and toning of sagging skin.

In the FDA clinical trial for instance, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line.This resulted in reduced skin laxity on the eyelid and a more open, youthful look to the eyes overall. Patients reported firmer, better-fitting skin in other areas of the face and neck as well. There is also an invisible result from the procedure with the creation of new collagen, which can help to slow the ageing process.
