What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is an FDA approved, non-invasive procedure to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound waves to lift the skin of the neck, under the chin, the eyebrow, and décolletage. It promotes healing of damaged tissues beyond the surface of the skin, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This leads to a rejuvenated appearance and creates outstanding cosmetic results for both men and women. Ultrasound waves have been safely used in the medical field for more than 50 years. Ultherapy® is a new application of ultrasound and has demonstrated safety in clinical studies and in over million treatments worldwide. Just one Ultherapy® treatment helps counteract the effects of gravity and sun exposure without any downtime.
How it works
Revive collagen and elastin naturally
As people age, the structural proteins in the skin deteriorate. This is especially true for collagen. Collagen is an important structural protein that is responsible for maintaining elasticity and strength of the skin. The quantity and quality of collagen decreases as we age, causing wrinkles and folds in the skin. By strengthening existing collagen and increasing the production of new collagen, Ultherapy® can make the skin appear more toned. This contributes to a more youthful appearance.
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production in the skin tissues at three different layers. It delivers the right amount of ultrasound energy to the right depth of skin at the right temperature, triggering a natural response in the skin to start the regenerative process. Ultherapy® treats deep layers of the skin without disturbing the surface of the skin. The ultrasound can also be used as an imaging technique for doctors to visualize the specific area and layer of the skin that would benefit the most from the treatment. As the new collagen grows to lift and tighten the skin, the results appear over 2-3 months. The best results will be achieved within three to six months.
