Many people think about getting a facelift, but care not to go under the knife. Is this you? If so, Ultherapy might be just the option for your needs. It is a safe and non-surgical ultrasound treatment that can make your face appear more youthful and lifted. Ultherapy uses your body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift the skin on the neck and under the chin, on the eyebrow, and it helps the chest area by smoothing out pesky lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy is the only treatment that is non-invasive that is also FDA-approved to lift the skin. Ultherapy is the only cosmetic treatment to use ultrasound imaging. This allows the medical professional to view the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to make sure the energy is placed where it will be most beneficial. Ultherapy is now also the only non-invasive procedure specifically indicated by the FDA to improve wrinkles and fine lines on the chest with its amazing Decolletage Treatment.
Even though this treatment gets to the deep foundational layer that is addressed in cosmetic surgery, it should be known that it won’t provide the exact same results as a facelift. But it is an amazing alternative, particularly for those who do not want surgery or for people who are looking to extend the results of cosmetic surgery they’ve already had.
Ultherapy is different from laser treatments and uses sound energy, which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths that are not treated by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. The ultrasound stimulates the collagen production in the foundation of the skin. This results in a lift of tissue over two to three months. Lasers typically just treat superficial skin and are not FDA-approved to lift it.
The time spent on treatment depends on what area is being treated and the patient’s unique plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes an hour to an hour and a half, and a chest treatment takes about a half an hour. The outstanding fact is that there is no downtime involved with treatment. You can go about your regular daily activities right away.
