Unlike lasers, radiofrequency or other technologies, this technique uses the energy of ultrasound, to act in deep layers of the skin, but without affecting or damaging its surface.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, it is an ultrasound treatment that counteracts the effects of gravity on your skin. Ultherapy is used to counteract signs of aging like skin sagging and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest as well as drooping of the brow area. According to Healthline, the FDA-cleared technology stimulates collagen production, which should create a more youthful look overall.
Can Ultherapy replace a face lift?
Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won't duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative for those who are not ready for surgery and for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
How long does an Ultherapy treatment take?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated. For example: a face and neck procedure typically takes between 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
When will you see results?
After your treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen.
