Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure to lift skin on the face, neck, under the chin and brow area and improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from brow to the chest.
Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy initiates a natural process of the body stimulating the growth of fresh new collagen, which replaces old and ageing collagen.
IS ULTHERAPY RIGHT FOR ME?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to look less firm or tight, examples include; lowered brow, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it is an alternative for those who are not ready for surgery – and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?
The first step to the treatment is marking the face with grid lines to guide the treatment. The treatment handpieces are then systematically passed over the treatment area. Each position is held for a few seconds to allow the handpiece to pulse multiple focused ultrasound points along the skin in a linear fashion. The number of pulses depends on the number of areas being treated. Different levels of skin are targeted with different handpieces to get tightening at different levels.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Initial tightening of the skin can be seen immediately after treatment, much of this, however, is from the inflammation caused by heat. True results appear over 2-3 months as the new collagen formation matures. As maturation occurs collagen is realigned to provide a smooth and well-supported foundation for the skin’s surface.
