Ultherapy is a non-surgical facelift! No needles, no downtime and no unnatural substances.Improvements include a sleeker, more defined jawline and tighter skin on the neck under the chin. Sagging skin on the cheeks can be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth. Tightening of skin on the forehead can reduce the sagging skin on the eyelids and promote a more open, refreshed look in general. Overall improvements in skin texture and evenness of color — as well as strengthening and adding more collagen “cushion” — can be additional benefits.
What You Need To Know About Ultherapy:
The Ultrasound technology has been used for over 50 years and is widely known to be safe. The FDA cleared this procedure in 2009 after clinical studies and more than 100,000 treatments have been done on patient worldwide.
A full face and neck treatment session takes approximately 45-60 minutes, a treatment of lower face and neck takes approximately 30 minutes, and treating one area at a time takes between 15 and 30 minutes. Exact timing will depend on the size of your treatment area and the treatment plan determined by your practitioner. You won’t receive any specific after-care requirements since there is no downtime or damage to the surface of your skin – you can resume your normal activities immediately.
What Makes Ultherapy Effective?
Ultherapy uses a beam of low-level heat for approximately 20 milliseconds, in combination with a vibration of ultrasound waves that cause “damage” to the deep tissues of your skin. The body responds to this “injury” by contacting the tissue structures and jumpstarting a collagen-building process. In other words, your body’s response to this heat and vibration energy is to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen, which slowly lifts the skin back to make it look more youthful.
