Ultherapy® – Uplifting Ultrasound!
Looking for a lift for your loose, saggy skin? Ultherapy may be just the solution!
Ultherapy is a non-surgical lifting procedure for the face and neck that uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen your skin from deep within.
In less than an hour – and without any downtime – you’ll be well on your way to tighter, better-fitting skin.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
Who is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
What About Treating Anatomical Regions Other Than the Face?
Currently, Ultherapy is a treatment for the face and neck with a specific clinical indication for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow.
What Does Collagen Do? How Does Ultherapy Stimulate the Creation of Collagen?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to generate a thermal affect under the skin. The thermal affect essentially jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
Can Men Have It Done?
Yes! Both women and men globally are receiving Ultherapy.
