If you are seeking a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that does not involve disrupting or cutting the surface of the skin, look no further than Ultherapy®. The treatment uses safe ultrasound energy to tighten and lift the skin naturally. It stimulates collagen production using the delivery of focused ultrasound energy into deeper layers of skin targeted by cosmetic surgery.
What is Ultherapy®?
Combining the words “ultrasound” and “therapy”, Ultherapy® is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that helps to counter the effects of time and gravity on sagging skin. The technique relies upon your body’s own healing response to gradually and gently lift skin on areas like the neck, chin, and eyebrow, while smoothing lines and wrinkles on other areas of the body.
The treatment has been proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of areas like:
* Saggy and tired eyes
* Sagging cheeks
* Loose facial skin
* Loose neck skin
How Does It Work?
Ultrasound has a variety of medical uses. You are probably familiar with ultrasound for its use in pregnancy scans and other types of diagnostic tests that involve looking within the body without the use of incisions. These types of situations involve the use of high-frequency sound waves that are transmitted using a special device. The reflections of the sound waves are captured to develop an image of what is going on within the body.
In contrast to its diagnostic uses, Ultherapy® uses ultrasound waves that are transmitted to a specific point under the skin. This affects proteins in a way that stimulates new collagen production, resulting in a tightening or lifting of skin tissue.
What Makes This Technique Better Than Others?
Unlike surgery and other treatments, non-surgical Ultherapy® completely bypasses the surface of your skin to transmit the correct amount of energy needed at certain depths and temperatures. The energy that is transmitted by the treatment stimulates a healing response by your body to kickstart the rejuvenation process, leading to the formation of new collagen.
Am I Eligible for This Procedure?
Ultherapy® is a great option for most patients who are worried about skin laxity. The typical patient is wanting to achieve a lifting or tightening effect without the need for a conventional surgical facelift.
It is important to understand that the results of the procedure are not comparable to that of a traditional facelift. Results are not as visible or dramatic, which is why it is best-suited for those seeking subtle changes in skin laxity. The results look natural and beautiful.
