Designed to counteract the effects of age and gravity, Ultherapy® is the latest advance in facial rejuvenation treatments. Using ultrasound to achieve its results, this safe Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment lifts, tightens and tones the skin. Ultherapy® is a great alternative to surgery and injectables. While this non-invasive procedure is indicated for lifting the eyebrows as well as lax skin beneath the chin and other areas of the neck, it may also be used on different parts of the body.
The treatment generally does not require sedation. The treatment does not involve the use of creams, fillers or harsh chemicals. There is no downtime or risk of infection and scarring. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment without the need to follow any special post-treatment recovery measures. Maximum results are typically evident in the months that follow the treatment.
Ultrasound technology enables the professional performing the treatment to visualize all the layers of the skin and direct the sound waves through the top layers to the deeper underlying tissue structures. Before this technology, the only way to access these deep tissue layers was through surgery. Once the treatment area has been identified, the focused sound waves gently heat the deep layers of skin. The heat stimulates neocollagenesis, the body’s natural ability to create new collagen, which gives you a more youthful appearance by lifting and tightening your skin. As a result, the skin appears refreshed and rejuvenated. The procedure achieves a natural result because it restores definition to the jaw line and areas underneath the chin. It also smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.
A good candidate for Ultherapy® is an individual with mild to moderate skin laxity who is experiencing loose skin on the neck, a sagging chin, a lowered eyebrow line or wrinkles on the chest.
