In the world of cosmetic treatments, the desire for ageless skin has seen many innovations. Of the many modern approaches, Ultherapy® stands out from the crowd as a non-invasive solution that uses the power of ultrasound energy to deliver a facelift effect — without surgery.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy is a cutting-edge treatment that targets layers of tissue typically addressed during facelifts or neck lifts.
But unlike surgical methods, it leaves the skin’s surface untouched. The magic is found in its use of sound waves, which promote collagen production when directed at specific skin layers.
This burst of collagen rejuvenation results in tighter, younger-looking skin. A noteworthy testament to its safety and effectiveness is Ulthera, Inc.’s claim: Ultherapy remains the sole non-invasive procedure that’s FDA-cleared for lifting skin on areas such as the neck, chin, and brow.
The Ultherapy Experience
The procedure is administered in a physician’s office and begins with cleansing the skin and applying an ultrasound gel to the designated region.
The Ultherapy handpiece, when placed on the skin, dispenses low-level focused heat over the targeted area. Patients may feel mild discomfort during this process as heat affects the skin. The experience varies among patients and depends on the specific area being treated. Time-wise, addressing a section of the face or just the brow takes about 30 minutes. However, treating the entire face and neck usually requires 60 to 90 minutes.
Expected Outcomes and Aftercare
Ultherapy’s benefits are most pronounced on skin that’s mild to moderately loose or sagging, especially on the face and neck. But, as with all cosmetic treatments, the outcomes will depend on individual skin quality and condition.
In general, the treatment can rejuvenate the brow area, diminishing excess eyelid skin and giving eyes a more alert appearance. It can also potentially eradicate signs of a double chin.
Although some patients notice immediate changes, the peak results typically emerge between two to three months post-treatment. This period sees the replacement of older collagen with a newer, more elastic variant. Full results are often seen after six months.
