If you have ever thought about getting a facelift, but don’t want to go through surgery, Ultherapy may be an excellent option for you. It is a safe and non-surgical ultrasound treatment that can make your face appear more lifted and youthful. Ultherapy uses your body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift the skin under the chin and on the neck, on the eyebrow and smooth out wrinkles and lines on your chest.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that cleared by the FDA to lift skin. It is also the only aesthetic treatment that makes use of ultrasound imaging. This allows the doctor to see the layers of tissue targeted during the procedure to make sure the energy is placed where it will be of most benefit. Ultherapy is also the only non-invasive procedure that is specifically indicated by the FDA to improve fine lines and wrinkles on the chest with its “Decolletage Treatment”.
Although this procedure treats the deep layer that is addressed in cosmetic surgery, it is helpful to realize that it won’t provide the same results as a facelift. However, it is an exceptional alternative, particularly for individuals who don’t want to undergo surgery or for people who are looking to extend their cosmetic surgery results.
Ultherapy is not the same thing as laser treatment. It uses sound energy, which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the skin’s surface to treat depths that aren’t treated by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. The ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the foundation of the skin. This results in a tissue lift over a period of two to three months. Lasers usually just treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift the skin.
The treatment time depends on the area that’s being treated and an individual’s unique plan. A face and neck procedure usually takes an hour to an hour and a half; a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. No downtime is needed with treatment, and you may continue your everyday routine immediately.
