Ulthera lifts, tightens and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of aging, including lifting the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens the eyes to give a more relaxed appearance. Ulthera can also help tighten a loose neck line, sagging jaw line, double chin, cure a turkey neck.
Ultherapy generally takes 30-60 minutes and there is no down-time and patients return to work and normal activity within 24 hours.
Ulthera utilizes ultrasound technology to identify the loose tissue beneath the skins surface. Next, Ulthera sends energy, to the desired treatment area. These energy heats the desired area to lift and tighten the loose skin without affecting the skin’s surface. This initial tightening is the first effect one will notice from the Ulthera treatment, the second of which is the stimulation of the body’s own creation of new collagen. Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. Collagen not only helps create a smoother skin surface, but also provides volume and fullness to the skin. In essence, this stimulation will continue to help the skin achieve and maintain a smoother, more youthful appearance.
