Non-invasive Face and Neck Lifting
Ultherapy is the first device with an FDA indication for non-invasive lifting. Unlike previous technology, it uses focused ultrasound to bypass the skin’s surface and deliver energy deep into the structural layers of the skin. It is a non-surgical procedure that allows the practitioner to see below the surface of the skin and to specifically target the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address with surgical facelifts. Because the practitioner is visualizing the layers beneath the skin during the entire treatment, the underlying support of the skin is treated very precisely which helps ensure safe and satisfying results with no downtime. An applicator is placed upon the skin and projects an image onto a screen. That same applicator delivers focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin to achieve lifting, leaving the surface of the skin undisturbed. The skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. Gradually, tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time. Visible effects include lifting and toning of sagging skin, significant lift of the brow line, reduced skin laxity on the eyelid and a more open, youthful look to the eyes overall. Patients also report firmer, better-fitting skin in the other areas as well. There is also an invisible result from the procedure with the creation of new, more youthful, collagen and elastin that help strengthen the skin from within.
You are able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment and there are no special measures you need to take. With just one treatment, the regenerative process begins and the effects will gradually build over the next several months.*
