Ultherapy® is often chosen by individuals not interested in a traditional face lift. The procedure improves wrinkles and sagging skin on your neck, face, chest, and near the brows. The technology has been cleared by the FDA to help increase your production of collagen. This provides you with a younger-looking appearance. Focused ultrasound energy penetrates under your skin at just the right temperature for the regeneration of your collagen. The applicator provides heat energy capable of achieving different depths. This helps diminish superficial wrinkles while improving your skin and muscle. The treatment additionally stimulates elastic tissue for a reduction of wrinkles and sagging and loose skin.
There is not much preparation necessary for an Ultherapy® treatment. During the treatment, the device is held against your skin. An ultrasound viewer is used by Dr. Rafael Salas to ensure the device is set to the right settings for your individual needs. The next step is the delivery of the ultrasound energy to the treatment areas.
During your procedure you will feel some heat. Once your treatment is completed, Dr. Salas will remove the device. The most commonly treated areas include:
• Beneath the chin
You may begin noticing the difference in a couple days. This depends on your production of new collagen. You should see improvement for another three months. You decide when you want another Ultherapy® session based on the response and the appearance of your skin.
The Benefits of Ultherapy®
• The treatment is non-invasive and no surgery is required to rejuvenate your skin. This is the only procedure to tighten and firm your skin with focused ultrasound technology.
• There is no downtime after an Ultherapy® session. The device enables your treatment to be customized with a simple adjustment to the energy depth and length of your session. You can also achieve even more exceptional results by combining your procedure with numerous injectable and resurfacing treatments.
• There is no downtime or serious side effects associated with this procedure because the treatment is non-invasive. The most common side effect is a little redness that will naturally fade away fairly quickly.
• The difference appears natural. The treatment stimulates your collagen production to gradually tighten your skin. This often provides an anti-aging result without the extended downtime and risks of surgery.
• Although you will not see optimal results for a few months, your improvements will continue as time passes and last for a long time.
