Over the last few years, the number of women getting facelifts has decreased, as more women opt for non-surgical alternatives. There are new options, providing exceptional results without having to go under the knife. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, are excellent at filling in lines that develop as we age. When it comes to lifting and tone the facial skin and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, there are many regenerative technologies available. Ultherapy is a leading procedure that is both safe and effective.
Dermatologists, skincare practitioners, and beauty experts have been praising this breakthrough, non-invasive facelift. While the results aren’t as dramatic as a surgical facelift, Ultherapy does provide a tremendous boost to the skin’s collagen-making ability.
Using cutting edge, highly focused, ultrasound technology, Ultherapy effectively lifts and tightens skin. Usually, Ultherapy is concentrated on the brow area, face, neck, and jawline. However, it is also effective in treating the chest area and even knee wrinkles. In addition to its lifting ability, the treatment also visibly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the treated areas.
The use of ultrasound energy waves boosts your natural production of collagen and elastin, providing natural-looking results. Ultherapy targets the tissue beneath the skin, using the right temperature to support collagen regeneration. The applicator’s heat energy is focused at different depths, affecting the muscle layer, deep tissue layer, and superficial wrinkles. The ultrasound energy stimulates collagen and elastic tissue, resulting in firmer skin, less sagging, and fewer wrinkles.
Ultrasound waves have been used in the medical field for more than 50 years, and are proven to be very safe and effective. In recent years, the therapeutic use of ultrasound devices has been harnessed to achieve these fantastic collagen-boosting effects in the skin and the superficial muscles.
During the Ultherapy procedure, your provider will clean the areas they plan to work on and apply an ultrasound gel. The Ultherapy device is then placed on the skin’s surface, and energy is delivered to the desired areas. Many patients describe experiencing heat and tingling during the treatment. We offer oral and nitrous oxide sedation so that patients are comfortable during the procedure.
