Ultherapy is the innovative, safe, non-surgical facelift
and skin tightening procedure that is used to tighten loose
skin under the neck and lower face as well as lift the brows and diminish wrinkles in the décolletage.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a heat based ultrasound treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin, which in turn causes tightening of the skin over time. After 3 to 4 months, the results will be visible; a smoother skin giving you a youthful and radiant appearance. The improvement can increase up to 6 months and can last for over 2 to 3 years after the treatment.
Are you feeling frustrated or self conscious of loose skin under your chin or around your face? Even though it bothers you, you may not be ready for surgery or a facelift. This skin laxity is a normal effect of aging. We would be happy to see you for a free consultation to discuss your non-invasive options with Ulthera.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses Micro-Focused Ultrasound Energy to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Ultherapy uses the micro-focused ultrasound energy to heat up the deep layers of skin and tissue at 60-70 degrees Celsius. This causes a controlled thermal injury, which your body repairs by making newer and stronger elastin and collagen. Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial. Ultherapy works in a 2-step process. The first is the contraction of the tissue, which occurs for some patients immediately after the procedure caused by the thermal injury. The second step is the remodeling and remaking of new collagen and elastin that happens over the next 3-6 months. Ultherapy results usually become visible after 3-4 months and the maximal results can be seen at 6 months.
What to expect?Patients will receive an Ultherapy treatment only after an in depth consultation with their practitioner. The treatment can take 15 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on the area being treated. The patient can immediately go back to work or daily activities.
Who is a good candidate?
The best candidates for Ultherapy have mild to moderate skin laxity as their skin starts to feel thinner and less firm. It is best to treat the skin with Ultherapy before the laxity is too severe. Examples of good candidates include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, jowls on the face, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
Is there any aftercare required?There is no downtime after Ultherapy and you can go back to work or the gym the same day. Immediately after the treatment, you may have a little redness or flushing. Make –up can immediately be applied A few days to a week after the treatment you may experience some soreness to touch as your body remodels and remakes its own collagen. Some also experience a small area of bruising and swelling.
Is it safe?
Ultherapy is a safe procedure and has been used safely in 250,000 treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultherapy practitioner receives extensive procedural training.
Ultherapy results usually become visible after 3-4 months and the maximal results can be seen at 6 months. Typically patients need 1-2 treatments.
Ultherapy is a great skin tightening and anti aging treatment option to be used in addition to fillers or BoToX but also a nice alternative to patients that prefer to use their own natural biological process to make new collagen.
