Many people have thought about getting a facelift, but they don’t want to go under the knife for results. Well, then, Ultherapy may be just the perfect option. It’s a safe and non-surgical ultrasound treatments that can cause the face to appear more lifted and youthful. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gradually and gently lift the skin under the chin and on the neck, on the eyebrow, and it smooths out lines and wrinkles in the chest area.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that is FDA-approved to lift skin. It is also the only cosmetic treatment to use ultrasound imaging. This allows the practitioner to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to be sure the energy is placed where it will be of most benefit. 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.
Although Ultherapy 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. But it is an outstanding alternative, especially 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 let it 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 usually only treat superficial skin and are not approved by the FDA to lift the skin.
The length of treatment depends on the area being treated and the patient’s unique treatment plan. A face and neck procedure usually takes and hour to an hour and a half, and a chest treatment takes about 30 minutes. The amazing thing is that there is no downtime involved with treatment. You can go about your regular daily activities right away.
