Ultherapy is a natural skin tightening non-invasive procedure that uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without the need for surgery. It is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-approved to lift skin under the chin, on the neck and eyebrow.
Ultherapy uses the power of ultrasound to transform the chin, neck, eyebrow, and chest. It relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver collagen-boosting treatment. It stimulates collagen production in the deepest layers to renew and tone the skin from inside without affecting the outer surface.
It helps you to achieve a more youthful, fresher and younger skin look. It also improves the appearance of the lines and wrinkles on the décolleté.
Over a million treatments have been performed worldwide and it has been established as an effective skin lifting and tightening treatment. It is approved in over 90 countries.
Who is an ideal candidate for Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is recommended for patients with mild to moderate skin sagging on the chin, neck, eye bags, and eyebrows. It is recommended for people who want to lift their eyebrows, under the chin, reduce excess skin on their eyelids, or conceal wrinkles on the neck.
It is an alternative treatment for people who want to reduce facial aging in a non-invasive method. It helps to correct aging signs without changing the facial appearance and also helps to prolong the effect of cosmetic surgery.
How is the treatment performed?
The treatment does not require an anesthetic. Your doctor (an oculofacial plastic surgery specialist) will first clean the skin area that needs to be treated. An ultrasound gel will be applied to the skin area and a handpiece or treatment applicator will be gently placed on the skin.
An ultrasound imaging will be used to determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy. The focused ultrasound energy is then delivered beneath the skin’s surface.
The ultrasound bypasses the surface of the skin and targets the programmed depth up to 4.5 mm. The heat energy of about 65 degrees Celsius is released with high precision which triggers the natural production of collagen. During the treatment, you will feel the energy being deposited to the precise depths which indicates that the building up process of the collagen has been initiated.
The treatment is painless and minimally invasive. The treatment can be completed within 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
After the treatment
Immediately after the treatment, the skin may be slightly reddish. The reddish coloration will disappear within a few hours. You may notice slight inflammation or a tingling feeling for a few days after the treatment. Slight bruising or lack of sensitivity may occur on rear occasions.
You are able to resume your normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. You may notice a feeling of firmness when the treatment is completed. However, actual results start to appear two or three months after the treatment.
Skin firmness can last a year or more depending on the patient’s aging process and skincare routine. Some patients may need to repeat the treatment or undergo a touch-up procedure when the effect of the previous treatment starts to wear off.
There is no permanent side effect of the treatment. Some patients may experience slight redness of the skin area which typically changes to normal within a few hours. Some patients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness of the skin. These side effects are mild and temporary.
