Ultherapy is a Nonsurgical Procedure to Tighten Your Skin Using Safe Ultrasound Technology
Ultherapy, also known as Ulthera, is revolutionizing the field of dermatology in a unique way. The FDA-approved, non-invasive cosmetic procedure can help tighten, tone and lift your brow and chin and correct fine lines and wrinkles on your neck and face.
How Does Ultherapy Work to Enhance Your Appearance?
An ultrasound wand is firmly pressed down on every millimeter of your neck and face. This cutting-edge technology kick starts slacking collagen production within the deep tissues of your body using precisely targeted sonic waves that break the old collagen and eventually stimulate your cells to produce new protein molecules. This mechanism helps revitalize your skin and improve its texture significantly.
What to Expect Following the Ultherapy Procedure
The entire process may take about 30 to 90 minutes. Most patients begin to notice a difference after two to three months, but it may take up to six months to enjoy all the benefits of the treatment. Your results will last 12 to 18 months. While most patients only require one treatment, some may need an additional session of Ultherapy for best results.
Who is Ultherapy Treatment Ideal for?
Ultherapy is a great option for patients who are not ready for invasive cosmetic procedures. Ultrasound technology has been used in the field of medicine for over 50 years. Unlike surgical interventions, patients can get back to their routine almost immediately. It can be used safely and effectively even on the sensitive skin around your eyes, cheeks and upper neck.
Some patients may experience pain during the treatment, although almost anyone who has had the procedure will tell you that it is tolerable. A pain reliever is offered before applying the sonogram gel on your neck and face to make the process more comfortable.
