Getting older isn’t easy because we have to deal with the wrinkles and sagging that come with it. Some of us would just like to soften these physical changes and firm up our skin without surgery and extensive downtime. Ultherapy is one of the trending cosmetic treatments of the moment. This incredible technology uses micro-focused ultrasound to lift and tighten your facial contours. Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved treatment for lifting the skin.
How It Works
Ultherapy is based on sound energy, and the advantage to that is its propensity for focusing on the depth of the skin’s layers instead of targeting the surface. It’s not a superficial therapy. The unique ultrasound technology of the wand device spurs the skin’s foundation to produce fresh collagen, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over a two to three month period. It’s not unusual to see these collagen effects continuing for up to six months.
It is not like a surgical facelift, but Ultherapy delivers a naturally lifted face with smoother skin. It is very safe and has become quite popular around the world with more than one million treatments performed.
Most of us lead very active lives and really don’t have the time to hide out after a complicated procedure and follow a long list of recovery must-dos. That’s the beauty of Ultherapy. The session typically leaves clients with a slightly red complexion, but that wears off within a few hours. Post-treatment, you are allowed to resume your normal daily activities.
The procedure takes anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the area or areas being treated. Your skilled aesthetic technician has an advantage using this cosmetic technology because ultherapy allows them to see the layers of tissue being targeted through ultrasound imagery.
Many clients see the beauty treatment as a way to stay ahead of the aging curve and keep the skin firm and supple. Ultherapy was developed for people who have loose skin under the neck and under the chin and lines and wrinkles.
Some people need just one treatment, and others opt for more sessions depending on the laxity of their skin. Everyone’s body is unique when it comes to the collagen-building process.
