Although capable of producing remarkable results, facelifts are invasive and require a lot of downtime. Ultherapy is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional facelifts that can significantly firm and rejuvenate the skin. This is currently the only non-invasive cosmetic treatment for lifting the skin that is FDA-cleared. Ultherapy uses the natural, regenerative abilities of the body to lift gradually and tighten the skin on the neck, face and chest. It gently smooths wrinkles, improves natural collagen production and creates a firmer and more youthful surface overall.
How Ultherapy Works
Throughout this treatment, focused ultrasound energy is deposited deep within the skin at the perfect temperature for inciting collagen production. These efforts jumpstart a natural process known as neocollagenesis, causing the targeted area to produce fresh, new collagen for a fuller, smoother appearance at the skin’s surface. There are no fillers, toxins or topical creams involved in this treatment. Ultherapy is completely reliant upon the body’s natural collagen-building process for producing all-natural and lasting improvements.
Rejuvenate Your Appearance without Radically Altering Your Look
One of the primary drawbacks of having a facelift performed is the fact that these procedures can have a significant impact on a person’s overall facial structure. Although patients want noticeable results when seeking cosmetic treatments to reverse the common signs of aging, they also want natural-looking results. Ultherapy does not alter the facial structure, symmetry, balance or overall look. It simply restores the treated area back to a more youthful appearance.
During Ultherapy Treatment
Ultherapy Treatment times can range between 30 and 90 minutes, depending upon the size of the area being treated and the patient’s aesthetic goals. Treatments for the face and neck can last an hour or longer while Ultherapy for the chest is much shorter. It is important to note that there is absolutely no downtime after Ultherapy and thus, patients can return to their normal routines immediately after the procedure is finished.
It is not common for patients to experience instant improvements in the treated area after Ultherapy has been performed. Instead, fine lines and wrinkles will gradually fill in, and the face will slowly develop a smoother, firmer appearance as natural collagen production increases. Marked changes can often be seen within just one month after an Ultherapy treatment, but full benefits may not become apparent for up to three months.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
In addition to being natural, non-invasive and extremely efficient for restoring the skin to a firmer and more youthful state, Ultherapy is also virtually painless. Patients may feel a sensation of having energy delivered into the targeted area, but this is often moderate and very short in duration. Best of all, there are no major, aftercare instructions and no significant risks of post-surgery irritation.
