Have you ever considered getting a facelift, but you don’t want to go through surgery for results? Ultherapy might be just the option for you. It is a safe and non-surgical ultrasound treatment that can make your face look 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 any wrinkles and lines.
Ultherapy is the only treatment that is non-invasive that is FDA-approved to lift skin. It is also the only cosmetic treatment to use ultrasound imaging. This lets the practitioner 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 the addition of its 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 same results as a facelift. However, it is an amazing alternative, particularly for those who do not want surgery or for people who are looking to extend the outcome of their cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy is different from laser treatments and uses sound energy, which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the skin’s surface 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 the skin.
The length of treatment depends on what area is being treated and the patient’s unique treatment plan. A face and neck procedure regularly takes and hour to an hour and a half, and a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. The outstanding thing is that there is no downtime involved with treatment. You can go about your regular daily activities immediately!
