Ultherapy – Non-Invasive Treatment for Facelift, Firm & Tighten Face and Neck
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the first FDA – approved device that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy for a non-invasive facelift and tightening lax skin. Using the same type of ultrasound used for pregnant women, it is safe and non-invasive. This non-surgical facelift procedure requires no needles, no cutting and therefore no downtime.
How does Ultherapy work?
When the smooth hand-piece is placed on the skin, an ultrasound imaging of the skin tissue is projected onto a screen. Upon identifying the collagen-rich SMAS tissue layer in the skin, focused ultrasonic thermal energy is precisely delivered to this target area, without harming the superficial layers of the skin. In response to the energy, there is an initiation of formation of new firmer collagen. Over time, a gradual tightening occurs, resulting in a natural facelift. Improvement in the skin develops gradually following treatment, with optimal facelift results seen from 3rd month onwards
Anyone can undergo the treatment as it is safe for all skin types. This non-surgical facelift procedure is suitable for treating the entire face and neck of all skin types, including:
- Mild to moderate sagging of the eyebrows
- Lax loose skin on the cheeks
- Poorly defined jawline
- Drooping corners of the mouth
- Mild to moderate nasolabial folds and jowl lines
