Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved procedure that can lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. It targets hard-to-treat areas, including the brow, neck, and under the chin. This new cosmetic technology offers natural-looking and distinctly noticeable results. It is intended to treat individuals who would like to improve the quality of their skin and attain a more youthful appearance without surgery. In addition, Ultherapy® can prolong the results of a surgical facelift.
A non-surgical procedure could never top a surgical facelift or brow lift, but the Ulthera procedure provides multiple benefits for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxitym and are seeking facial rejuvenation. These include less cost, no blood and no downtime. Ultherapy® is a unique procedure that sculpts and lifts the skin without the need for incisions.
This procedure gradually works over time. It generally takes about two to three months, or more, for patients to see the final outcome of their treatment. This is because the natural collagen-building is a gradual and organic process. Ultherapy® utilizes micro-focused ultrasound to target the deep structural support layers of the skin, strengthening the existing collagen as well as stimulating the formation of new collagen. It delivers energy that is set to optimal standards regarding depth, temperature, and precision; therefore micro-focused ultrasound is advantageous over any other current treatment modality.
During Ultherapy®, patients have the opportunity to view ultrasound imaging so that they can see exactly which areas of the tissue are being targeted. The entire in-office treatment time may take between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the size of the targeted areas. Ultherapy® can also treat a vast range of skin tones because it does not affect the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin).
A Beautiful New Look, NOW
Initially, you may notice a short-term “boost,” such as your skin feeling tighter and changes in skin texture, but you may feel like your face has “had a workout.” Your face may even appear more taught when you look in the mirror at home. Ultherapy® treatment is currently the best alternative to facelift surgery for those who want to look younger immediately.
