Tighter skin is a cherished possession that all women desire. However, time, pollution, stress and various skin diseases take their toll on the skin leaving it loose, lusterless, with open pores and wrinkles. At skinhelaers, we offer the latest and the only FDA approved noninvasive (means without any needles and injections) technique to get tighter skin, that is ULTHERAPY
Q. What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, chest, and on the eyebrow. Thus, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest! Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows us to see the layers of tissue which we are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
Q. How does ultherapy work?
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. As is known, collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned and as we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity.
Q. Who is an ideal candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
Q. How is the procedure done?
To enhance your comfort, you may be given certain medication before the treatment. Then, after cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, the ultrasound gel will be applied to your skin and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, your provider will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to first see deep within the skin to determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy, and then deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During the treatment delivery, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face* and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Q. How is the immediate post-procedure period?
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin.
Q. When can I expect to see results with ultherapy?
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months* as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin, and brow as well as the smooth skin on the chest.
Q. Can ultherapy replace a surgical facelift?
While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. It’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery—and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. Ultherapy believes in the mantra of ‘No Downtime, Natural Results!’
Q. How long do the results last?
Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s naturalagingg process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the ageing process, which varies by individual.
