Ultherapy is often referred to as an ultrasound facelift. This is a non-invasive procedure to lift and tighten the skin on your neck and face. One of our professionals uses an ultrasound device to visualize the deep connective tissues and muscles beneath your skin to deliver a concentrated and targeted ultrasound energy. The energy cause the deep tissues and muscles to contract. This stimulates the production of collagen to help support your skin. The end result is more lifted, smoother and tighter skin.
Ultherapy uses a true ultrasound or sound energy due to the unique properties. The ultrasound bypasses your skin’s surface to enable a deeper treatment than any other cosmetic, non-invasive device. The Ultherapy ultrasound provides the stimulation your body needs to increase collagen production in the foundation of your skin.
The Specifics of Ultherapy
Ultherapy is safe for every type of skin. Individuals in their early 30s through late 40s with skin laxity are the best candidates and will see the most benefits. The ultrasound rejuvenates your skin without surgery. The only procedure capable of tightening and firming your skin using focused ultrasound technology is Ultherapy. The procedure does not require any downtime. There are not post-treatment instructions so you can immediately resume your normal daily activities.
The ultrasound technology has been used in the medical sector for over fifty years and has established a proven track record. Most patients only require one treatment. Some patients see additional benefits from a second treatment. This is dependent on the collagen building process, the response to the ultrasound and the amount of skin laxity. The treatment can be easily customized for the specific needs of the individual. This is accomplished by an adjustment to the treatment length and the depth of energy used.
Increasing your collagen is important because this is what keeps your skin toned, firm and youthful. As people age, the collagen starts to break down. This causes the skin to lose elasticity and strength. Ultherapy generates a thermal effect beneath the skin. This helps your body produce new, fresh collagen. As the collagen is stimulated, your skin tissues will gradually begin to tighten. The result is a natural appearance and anti-aging result without surgery and the risks pertaining to healing. It will take approximately two or three months for you to see the optimal results, but your results will last for a long time. As time passes, your results may continue to improve.
