Ultherapy® helps your skin defy gravity – in a lunch hour
You wake up one day and all of a sudden, reality stares you square in the face. You just do not look like you feel, and as hard as you have tried over the years with skin care products, HydraFacial MD, Botox®, maybe even dermal fillers, eventually you admit that your loose skin is bringing you down. Although wrinkles might say wisdom and experience, droopiness and lax skin can say tired and old.
As we get older, our faces sag and wrinkles appear due to gravity, sun diet and other environmental factors. Until recently, the only approach to tightening the skin on your face and neck was a facelift – an effective but invasive procedure with downtime plus a risk of scarring and side effects.
Non-surgical methods to treat laxity of the brow, face and neck are among the most sought after solutions in the aesthetic world. Many skin tightening technologies have been introduced in the past, and a variety claim to achieve that goal. Yet none have been shown to be consistent and reproducible, and some patients leave dissatisfied.
Enter Ultherapy® which combines focused ultrasound technology with acoustic energy. It is a quantum leap from other non-surgical, energy-based devices used to tighten and lift skin. The technology allows the medical practitioner to visualize tissue under the skin to precisely deliver the energy.
A Non-Surgical Breakthrough
Ultherapy is the ONLY non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, brow and now your décolletage (cleavage area). Using ultrasound, Ultherapy delivers energy that tightens the skin without cutting. No scalpels, no needles, no incisions. Ultherapy, however, is not a facelift and does not give the same results as a facelift. A facelift stops the clock. Ultherapy slows down the aging process by creating new structural collagen. As a standalone treatment, Ultherapy may be optimal for surgical candidates who are unwilling or unable to undergo facial surgery or for those candidates who wish to postpone surgery.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that there is no downtime. It’s appropriately called the “lunchtime lift.” Ultherapy uses ultrasound heat to set collagen production into overdrive deep below the skin’s surface. As your collagen reproduces, the brow firms, the jawline becomes well defined, and the neck lifts. It’s a lunchtime lift without any surgery.
Even more alluring is that Ultherapy provides an immediate smoothing effect. And since the collagen continues to grow, results actually improve over the course of a few months. More than 90 percent of patients notice improvement in tone, texture and some tightening within a few weeks, and are even more excited with the results after three to six months, when the deep wrinkles become fine lines and eyes appear more open.The duration of response after a single treatment is estimated to last a couple of years. The ideal candidate is someone between 35 and 65 with early signs of laxity. These patients see results within three to six months with a single treatment. Patients over the age of 60 may require a second treatment in six months.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
A smooth applicator is placed upon the skin that delivers tiny deposits of micro-focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin to stimulate new collagen growth. Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm, toned, and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity, which pull the skin downward. With Ultherapy, there are no foreign substances – just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside. After only one treatment you can immediately continue your daily routine and activities.
What To Expect
Unlike invasive surgical procedures, you will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately. Some light swelling, tenderness, tingling, numbness, and mild bruising may occur. Some of the immediate benefits include a slight lifting and toning, along with a tighter, firmer feeling in the skin. Results will unfold gradually over the course of 3-6 months as the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time – much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but with only one workout!). The Ultherapy treatment has proven to be a very effective alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery or may not require surgery. Ultherapy reviews report a higher satisfaction rating than any other skin tightening technology in its category.
