Firm skin without surgery
How does ultherapy® work exactly?
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to access deeper layers of skin, smoothing wrinkles through heat induction and firming up the tissue fibers. This non-invasive procedure originated here in the United States, where it is FDA-certified as the only non-surgical ultrasonic lifting method. The US Food and Drug Administration has certified both the effectiveness and the safety of the procedure. Ultherapy® is a popular rejuvenation method among the Hollywood crowd, because it is an ideal complement to the range of injectable treatments using Botox® and fillers.
Ultherapy®: The versatile wrinkle treatment
For patients who prefer non-invasive methods to improve their appearance ultherapy® is ideal as, unlike a standard facelift, it does not require surgery. For light to mid-grade loss of tone, uItherapy is exceptionally effective. For parts of the body that are difficult to treat using injection fillers, ultrasound is an ideal alternative. These include the neck and décolletage, droopy eyelids or upper arms, all of which can now be treated simply and effectively without surgery. Common problems such as ‘hamster cheeks,’ ‘turkey neck’ or ‘wattles’ are handled gently and effectively with ultherapy®.
Which areas can be targeted using ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is ideal for the following problem areas:
- Saggy eyebrows
- Droopy eyelids
- Face / neck / neckline
- Tonal loss in jawline / jowls
- Saggy neck
- Loose skin on upper arms or ‘bingo wings’
Ultherapy® uses ultrasound for wrinkles
We all associate firm and wrinkle-free skin with youthfulness, vitality and freshness. But in the course of life your body’s collagen production naturally decreases. As a result, your skin is not as elastic, and the first fine wrinkles are formed. Ultherapy® can smooth wrinkles without surgical intervention by means of ultrasound, reviving elasticity in the skin tissue and creating a firmer skin tone.
How does ultherapy® work?
The natural repair mechanism of the skin is reactivated during therapy. This is achieved via the ultrasound’s penetration of the deeper layers of the skin. These layers are warmed, triggering a healing process that initiates the formation of collagen. The skin appears firmer, fresher and more youthful again. In addition to improving the elasticity of the skin, a gentle lifting effect is achieved.
Are there any side effects?
Because ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure that tightens the skin and tissue very gently, generally no recovery time is needed. Occasionally treated areas can become flushed. Localized cooling can alleviate this.
When can I expect to see the first results? How long do they last?
The formation of collagen fibers is a physical process that takes time: about as much time as the body would naturally need to form new collagen tissue by itself. Therefore the results of ultherapy® are usually visible after two to three months, while the firming effect continues up to six months after therapy: a result of continued collagen production. The effect lasts about two years.
The advantages of ultherapy®
If you are looking for a non-invasive way to firm up your skin, ultherapy® offers you many advantages:
- Natural results without any radical changes
- No risk of an excessively lifted look
- Visibly smooth complexion and firm contours
- Wrinkle reduction and tissue firming in as little as one session
- No recovery time
- Ultherapy® works well in combination to injections
Regions such as neck and décolletage, eyelids, or the upper arms can now be treated effectively thanks to ultherapy® treatment. In some cases a combination treatment with Botox® or hyaluronic acid injections is recommended.
