The Treatment Introduction
The U.S. FDA-Cleared Non-Invasive Lift
Ultherapy® uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy® have been established through clinical studies and over 680,000 treatments performed worldwide. Ultherapy® is FDA-cleared to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. Ultherapy® has also received the European CE mark for non-invasive dermatological sculpting and lifting of the upper face, lower face, neck and décolleté.
Lifting with Ultrasound
Ultherapy® uses precise ultrasound energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. After treatment, the body’s tissue repair process stimulates the production of new collagen, creating a natural lifting effect.
The Ultherapy Difference: Precision with combined Ultrasound Imaging & Treatment.
During the Ultherapy® treatment, ultrasound live imaging support is being used to identify the optimal layers of tissue for collagen regeneration. This ensures the ultrasound energy is delivered to where it will be the most beneficial, resulting in targeted collagen growth where it matters most.
How it Works ?
Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, neo-collagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen to counteract the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy® relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
Treating at Specific Depths
The Ultherapy® procedure delivers focused ultrasound energy at precise depths and temperatures to initiate neocollagenesis, but without disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy jump-starts the collagen building process to replace old, aging collagen with fresh, new collagen.
Neocollagensis occurs when tissues are heated to a threshold temperature, first denaturing weak collagen and then stimulating the growth of new collagen. Ultherapy® delivers ultrasound energy at precise temperatures to jump-start the neocollagenesis process.
After Your Treatment
Since there is little to no downtime with Ultherapy®, you are free to return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment is complete. Some patients appear flushed, or may experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to touch. These side effects are mild and temporary in nature, and are not expected to interfere with your normal activities.
