Ultherapy – for effective skin tightening

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a non-invasive but effective treatment utilizing intense focused ultrasound. It is the same ultrasound technology that has been safely used for over 50 years for medical imaging. Skin laxity which is the normal result of aging and gravity is a very common complaint. There isn’t a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery but Ultherapy offers a ‘no downtime’ approach to noticeably improving lax skin and it has been called ‘the lunchtime facelift’. Without harming the outer layer of the skin, Ultherapy penetrates deeply below the surface firming, lifting and tightening the skin.

How does it work?

Intense focused ultrasound penetrates deeply into the facial tissues producing energy and heat at a precise depth. Ultherapy enables the sound waves to be directed not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissues that are addressed during a surgical facelift. Gentle heat to the tissue typically lifts and tightens loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy of the creation of new collagen which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.

Ultherapy plus Fillers

To further enhance Ultherapy results, we recommend using Radiesse or other facial fillers. Research shows that fillers can stimulate additional collagen production when combined with Ultherapy.

Can Ultherapy be used on all areas?

Ultherapy can be used anywhere on the face, neck, decollete and other areas of the body. A full-face treatment can be very effective. Specific concerns can be addressed such as the drooping of the brows and hooding of the eyes. Ultherapy can lift the brow which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opening up the eyes to give a more refreshed appearance. Treatments on the neck can help firm the tissues and sharpen the jaw line.
