Ultherapy defines, lifts and tones the skin without incisions, needles or fillers. It is currently the only non-invasive, cosmetic procedure involving the use of ultrasound that has FDA clearance. Unlike a facelift, this treatment can provide phenomenal results with absolutely no downtime. It is a safe and effective procedure for eliminating fine lines and tightening and lifting the skin.
How Ultherapy Works
Collagen is the protein that keeps the dermis plump, firm and toned. As people age, the production of collagen begins to wane, thereby causing the skin to wrinkle and lose its firmness. Ultherapy delivers ultrasound energy deep into the skin in order to increase the body’s natural production of collagen. When Ultherapy is performed, no special solutions or creams are applied to enhance these efforts. After an Ultherapy treatment, as collagen production increases, the skin will naturally restore itself, which will in turn create a more youthful visage without any cutting or artificial plumping.
The Ultherapy Procedure
Ultherapy treatments typically last between 45 and 60 minutes depending upon the needs and goals of the patient. Pain is minimal and thus, patients do not need anesthesia, however, an oral sedative may be offered for additional comfort. During the treatment process, patients will feel energy being delivered into the skin as the treated area is targeted by the ultrasound equipment. Providers can target the brow or perform partial uplifts for the face in as few as 30 minutes. All patients are able to return to their normal activities right away and there are no special measures that need to be taken as part of the aftercare process.
Why Choose Ultherapy
Ultherapy is not invasive, it isn’t painful and there is no downtime. It does not use artificial fillers or injectable toxins to improve skin texture or diminish the signs of aging. There is no post-procedure irritation and minimal risk. Ultherapy is instead, wholly reliant upon the body’s natural ability to produce collagen. It provides gradual and long-lasting benefits by helping the skin repair itself.
Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, Ultherapy does not produce immediate results. Visible improvements will be gained over time as the body naturally increases its production of collagen. This will give the treated area a fuller and firmer appearance. Noticeable results may be visible one month after treatment, but the full benefits will not be recognized until three to four months after the Ultherapy procedure has been performed.
