What is Ultherapy & How Does it Work?
- Posted on: Jun 26 2014
Ultherapy is a non-surgical face and neck treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose skin on the brow, on the neck and under the chin and without any downtime. Ultherapy has been featured on national television shows such as Rachael Ray, The View, and The Doctors. It’s been touted by big-name beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape and more.
How is Ultrasound Used to Tighten Skin?
Ultrasound imaging allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most effective. We can then specifically target the deep foundation below the skin, the one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery, without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. That means after a 90-minute non-invasive treatment, you’ll be able to return to your everyday life without interruptions and with no scars.
Ultherapy Creates Collagen and Elastin Naturally!
Ultherapy is so unique because it refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin! This results in an actual lifting of the skin overtime. Many people notice an immediate effect following the treatment, but the ultimate lifting and toning takes place over a period of 2-3 months, as the old collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. This collagen-building process can continue for up to 6 months following a procedure!
Who’s a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the best non-surgical option for anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity, who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but do not want surgery. It’s also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of previous cosmetic surgery.
Does Ultherapy Hurt?
Ultherapy may cause some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Our patients who’ve had Ultherapy typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
