What’s exciting about Ultherapy’s technology isn’t its novelty. It’s the fact that Ultherapy serves what we consider to be a fast-growing and unique subset of the patient population who simply will not consider surgery when a nonsurgical alternative will yield a visible result, or who wouldn’t choose surgery under any circumstance. Many patients are looking to address facial laxity as a result of aging. Ultherapy provides an affordable and highly effective treatment to tighten skin from brow to chest.
See What You Treat
The distinct benefit of Ultherapy is the dual ultrasound. The first allows visualization of the collagen layer under the skin. This live-time precision visualization during the procedure removes the guesswork about the underlying tissue in which we are depositing high-intensity ultrasound energy. Ultrasound is the only kind of energy that can be focused through the skin in this manner, without surface damage or patient downtime.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to non-invasively lift and tighten skin. Ultrasound is a form of mechanical energy that is significantly diffferent than Light (Lasers) and Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. During Ultherapy, ultrasound it is micro-focused below the skin’s surface to cause cellular friction and precise, pin-point heating. Similar to a magnifying glass focusing sunlight, heat is only generated at the focal point, leaving the skin’s surface and intervening tissue unaffected. Tissue at the focal point is heated to ~65°C, causing immediate collagen contraction and denaturation, and initiating aggressive collagen synthesis. Over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue remodeling and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last a year or more.
Plan Your Treatment
Treatment is a single treatment that lasts between 1-3 hours depending on the area treated. Ultherapy is a one-time treatment, although clients often return years after their treatment as they continue to age. There is no downtime following the procedure, and your results will continue to improve for 6-8 weeks following the procedure as your body heals and forms new tightly woven collagen which lifts the skin. Ultherapy can be used in conjunction with Neurotoxins like Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to enhance treatment and target specific problem areas.
