For the first time ever, Ulthera enables us to direct sound waves not only into the skin but also deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin restore its youthful look.
Ultherapy lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity. One of the first effects of gravity is that the brows descend, and the eyes start to appear smaller. Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed appearance. When the skin on the cheeks and neck begins to shift downward, the result is a change in the contour of the lower face. Ultherapy can lift and tighten the sagging skin on the cheeks and neck to give a younger, slimmer look.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 60 to 90 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get an immediate response. While patients enjoy an instantaneous result following the procedure, the ultimate lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. There is never a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy offers a ‘no downtime’ approach to improving lax skin in a meaningful way.
