If you have questions about Ultherapy®, we have the answers! Read on to learn more and find out if Ultherapy® is right for you.
What Is Ultherapy®?
This is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment that will counteract gravity’s impact on your skin. Ultherapy® makes use of the body’s regenerative response to gradually and gently lift skin on the eyebrows, neck, under the chin, and smooth wrinkles and lines on the decolletage.
What Makes It Different?
It is the only FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment that actually lifts the skin. It’s also the only cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound imaging, which lets practitioners view the layers of tissue for treatment to make sure the energy is most effectively deposited.
The new Ultherapy® Decolletage treatment is the only non-invasive procedure with FDA approval to improve wrinkles and lines on the chest.
Can It Replace Getting A Face Lift?
Ultherapy® is not a facelift, but it does treat the deep foundational layer that cosmetic surgery treats. It’s an excellent alternative for people not ready for surgery or for those who want to extend the results of cosmetic surgery.
Is It A Laser Treatment?
No, it is not. Ultherapy® makes use of sound energy, which has unique properties that let it bypass the skin’s surface to treat at a depth that is not matched by other non-invasive cosmetic devices. It also stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, which can significantly lift the tissue over two to three months.
On the other hand, lasers use light energy, which can’t reach the deeper skin layers. Laser treatments usually just treat superficial skin and do not lift the skin.
How Does Ultherapy® Stimulate Collagen?
This treatment deposits ultrasound energy, deep under the skin, at the best temperature for the regeneration of collagen. It kick-starts a natural process known as neocollagenesis, to make new collagen.
Now that you understand how this treatment works, in our next article we’ll consider what Ultherapy® treatment is like. Stay tuned!
