Within the last decade a number of non-invasive skin rejuvenation options have hit the market, making it possible to get a facelift without surgery. Ultherapy is among the most effective of these evolving technologies. It is the perfect non-surgical facelift, because it produces natural results in a very short time (read more).
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin on the face and neck. It is the only device that is FDA cleared for non-surgical face lifting. It lifts and tightens the skin above the eyebrow, and also redefines the jowl and jawline.
How does it work?
Ultherapy delivers micro-focused ultrasound energy to the fatty layers beneath the skin. These are the same layers that are addressed during a surgical facelift. The heat from the device stimulates collagen production, leading to long term results over the next 2-3 months as new collagen forms. The skin will become tighter, and facial volume will increase.
The Ultherapy session lasts for 30 to 90 minutes, but this depends on the size of the area being treated. It usually takes only one treatment to achieve the desired results, and patients will notice a difference right away. The effects of Ultherapy typically last for 3 to 5 years.
Are you a good candidate for Ultherapy?
If you are beginning to show early signs of age, Ultherapy is likely to be a good skin rejuvenation option for you. It is very effective in correcting skin laxity, and reducing fine lines.
