Ultherapy may be a treatment that you have heard about from a friend or have seen on a commercial. However, do you know that it may be the right treatment for you if you have ever wanted a facelift, but don’t want to go under the knife? Ultherapy is a safe, non-surgical, ultrasound option that make your face look more lifted and youthful. This outstanding treatment makes use of the body’s regenerative response to gradually and gently lift the skin under the chin, on the eyebrow, on the neck, and it diminishes wrinkles and lines that are on the chest.
This is an FDA-cleared non-invasive treatment that is meant to lift the skin. It is also is a cosmetic treatment that makes use of ultrasound imaging. This allows the medical professional to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to be sure the energy is placed in the area that is most beneficial. Ultherapy is also the only non-invasive treatment that is specifically indicated by the FDA to use its Decolletage Treatment to improve the fine lines and wrinkles of the chest area.
Although this is a treatment that targets the deep layer that is addressed in cosmetic surgery, it should be known that it won’t provide the exact same results as a facelift. But this is an excellent option, especially for people who do not want to undergo surgery or for those who want to extend the results of their previous cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy is also not the same as traditional laser treatment. It uses sound energy, which has unique properties that let it bypass the skin’s surface to treat depths that are not treated by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Lasers typically only treat superficial skin and they are not FDA-approved for skin lifting.
The length of treatment often depends on the area being treated and the specific treatment plan of the patient. A neck and face procedure usually just takes about one to one and a half hours. A chest treatment will usually take about 30 minutes. There is no downtime involved with Ultherapy. You can resume your normal daily activities immediately.
