Ultherapy: Proven Instrument, New Symphony
Ultherapy, which is FDA approved to lift and tighten the jawline, neckline, brow, and décolleté, provides a non-surgical way to take years away from a person’s appearance without recovery and downtime, smoothing, lifting, and tightening the face, neck, and upper chest. Unlike laser and chemical peel techniques for giving the skin a new, smooth surface, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin and stimulates the tissues beneath it. The body’s natural response to Ultherapy is to produce collagen, allowing the skin to tighten and lift.
More than 700,000 Ultherapy treatments have been performed worldwide with 95% patient satisfaction after a year.
Working with the Body’s Own Response
The technology behind Ultherapy – ultrasound – has been used in medicine for more than 50 years to reach subdermal tissues and stimulate the body’s own healing processes. Refined and micro-focused by Ultherapy instruments, ultrasound energy is applied at pre-arranged depths below the surface of the skin to warm the tissues there, encouraging them to create more collagen. Growing new collagen restores the structural support layers of the skin that are lost as we age.
Ultherapy is FDA-approved as safe and effective for treatment of the brow, cheeks, chin, and neck. The FDA has also extended this approval to include the upper chest, putting décolletage back on the fashion map for many women.
Results are Immediate, and Improvement Continues
After a 60- to-90-minute office procedure that does not call for anesthetic, most patients see results and return to their normal activities immediately. The results of Ultherapy continue to develop over the next two to three months as collagen production beneath the surface of the skin takes shape.
Although Ultherapy cannot take the place of plastic surgery or produce the same results for certain objectives, many people find it is a step in the right direction that they can take before considering plastic surgery. Others choose Ultherapy for a tune-up after cosmetic surgery, or as part of an integrated approach to achieving the look that is as young as their outlook on life.
Just as Ultherapy has been proven in so many applications, and the instrument that applies it is incredibly precise about the depths it reaches for treatment, so, too, should the plastic surgery practice you entrust with this procedure have an abundance of experience and skill.
