Ultherapy is the non-invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that uses ultrasound to lift, firm and tighten the skin in the areas of the face and neck. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response and implements a non-invasive approach to the deeper layers of connective tissue, which can be achieved only in a surgical procedure otherwise.
As well as on other ultrasound applications, a flat ultrasonic head is placed on the skin, which projects an image on a monitor by which your doctor can plan where he will apply the ultrasound energy. The focused ultrasound energy can be released in the intended tissues with this ultrasonic head to stimulate the desired firming effects. The surface of the skin is not injured. The formation of new collagen is stimulated in response to this energy in the skin. The skin will gradually become tighter and tighter, so the patient can look forward to a natural lifting effect.
The feeling of the treatment varies from person to person, but it is unlikely that you will need painkillers during the process. Many patients describe the sensation as a temporary tingling, heat sensation under the skin. This is the ultrasonic energy that acts on the tissue; thereby Ultherapy lifts the skin and tightens it.
After treatment, you can immediately return to daily activities and you don’t need to take any special measures. Your skin may seem a little reddened after the application. However this redness disappears within a few hours. It is common; that mild swelling occurs after treatment for a few days or the skin is for a while sensitive to touch.
Ultrasonic energy has been used successfully for more than 50 years in medical diagnostics and therapies. Clinical studies have confirmed the safety of this latest application method “Ultherapy”. In the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) clinical study for instance, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line. This resulted in a reduced skin laxity of the eyelid and a totally more open, youthful appearance of the eyes overall. Patients reported also in other areas of the face and neck a firmer, tighter skin that feels better. Ultherapy can’t indeed be equated with surgery, but has been proven to be an effective alternative treatment for all those who are not yet ready for an invasive treatment.
