Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery – but without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin*
The Revolutionary Development of Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a specialized use of ultrasonic sound to affect the foundation of skin. In cosmetic surgery, Doctors would address the foundational layers of skin, encouraging the growth of collagen and inspiring the body to heal with newer skin. Ultherapy affects these same areas, but does so with no cutting or scarring. Through a non-invasive technique of sound, you will have no downtime to recover. You won’t have to find a way to deal with any possible marks on your skin. Instead, you can move on with your life immediately after, and over time your skin will heal and become firmer and more youthful.
Ultrasound Technology treats all three of skin layers, from the deepest Fibro-Muscular layer to mid-level subcutaneous tissue and the Dermis.
Only the Ultherapy treatment can provide the deepest lifting and tightening without surgery or downtime, no other treatment can match.
Unlike lasers, radio-frequency and other technologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision.
Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows our practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial*.
Ultherapy is an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery – and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Collagen is Key
As one of the major components of skin, collagen is the material that gives elasticity and firmness. The healthier and more vibrant collagen is, the more youthful and taut the skin. Many therapies have worked to stimulate collagen, all with benefits and drawbacks. For instance, laser treatments try to do the same as Ultherapy to varying degrees of success. However, lasers can disrupt the color and tone of your skin, leaving age marks or patchy color sections. Additionally, lasers cannot penetrate deep enough to truly affect the foundation levels of your skin.
Doctors have known that this was the essential material to work with for better skin for a long time. Face lifts and similar surgeries are designed to disrupt and stimulate growth of collagen. As the body heals from the surgery, collagen also grows so after healing you appear better than ever. However, that requires disruption of the skin through cutting and insertion of surgical tools. The body requires time afterward to heal and recuperate from such an invasive procedure.
Ultherapy uses sound at specific depth optimal for affecting collagen. This precision and penetration allows Ultherapy to be so very effective. Additionally, use of sound allows for ultrasonic imaging, allowing practitioners to see the layers of tissue being treated and ensuring that the energy is being delivered safely. Pinpoint accuracy allows for the most benefit, as only what you need stimulated is being affected. Many other treatments require multiple visits or follow ups to see your doctor. Ultherapy is can be done in a single session, allowing you all the benefits, but without the significant time investment.
Ultherapy is the only FDA approved therapy to lift sagging skin, and promote a healthier look to your skin. Without cutting or disruption to your skin, you don’t have to be concerned with downtime to recover. No lasers that can burn, no blades creating cuts, only sound is used making the process very safe. The same principles that made cosmetic surgery so successful are applied here with far less difficulty for you. Your skin will heal and grow stronger over time, but without needing a long recovery or worrying about incision sites. If you are not ready for surgery, but want healthier skin, Ultherapy is a great option. If you already had surgery, and want to reinforce that procedure, Ultherapy can help maintain or supplement what you already had done.
