Ultherapy: The Latest Cosmetic Procedure for Non-surgical and Non-invasive Skin Tightening
Ultherapy is a new name in cosmetic cosmetics. This is a new non-surgical, non-invasive facial procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.
The FDA-cleared device used in ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those commonly used in surgical facelifts, without disturbing the skin’s surface.
What is Ultherapy?
Also referred to as ulthera, it is a non-surgical facial procedure that uses ultrasound to lift and tone loose or loose skin with no downtime.
What is unique about this procedure?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that utilizes the ultrasonic knife or 超聲刀and can specifically target the deep base under the skin that is applied in cosmetic surgery without cutting or destroying the skin’s surface. It is also the only procedure that uses ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we are targeting during treatment and ensure that energy is delivered exactly where it will be most effective.
While lasers usually address problems in the superficial layers of the skin (e.g., fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes), Ultherapy refers to the deep layer of the skin and the base layer in cosmetic surgery that lift and support the skin. Thus, the two technologies complement each other quite well!
What technology does Ultherapy use?
Ultherapy uses proven ultrasound technology that has received FDA clearance for use in this new type of medical procedure.
Is Ultherapy Surgery?
No. Unlike a facelift, Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that works on the skin and the supporting layers underneath but does not cut or break the skin’s surface.
Can Ultherapy replace a facelift?
Ultherapy is about lifting, not about facelift. While not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those who are not ready for a facelift or those looking to prolong the effect of cosmetic surgery.
Is Ultherapy safe?
The procedure was approved by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and tens of thousands of procedures have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasonic energy has a proven track record of being used in the medical field for over 50 years.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point where it looks and often feels less firm. For example, a lowered brow line or loose skin on the eyelids are often the first signs of “maturing” of the skin. Typically, candidates are those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity.
Although Ultherapy is not a substitute for a surgical facelift, many people want to lift themselves but are not ready for the surgery, either mentally, financially, or logistically. Some young people want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as those who want to prolong the effect of cosmetic surgery.
How long does ultrasound treatment take?
A full facial takes 45-60 minutes, while a partial facelift or brow lift can take around 30 minutes – with no downtime.
What problem areas does Ultherapy target? What results are you getting?
Ultherapy is for mild to moderate loose or loose skin. In particular, by repairing and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy lifts the eyebrows, reducing excess skin on the eyelids, opening the eyes, and giving a more refreshed look.
