Non-surgical lift. Possible?


Imagine a world in which hooded lids, falling cheeks, and lazy jaw lines can be treated without a single incision?


Ultrasound energy is the technology that Ulthera uses to make visible improvements in overall lifting and tightening of skin. is also the first device that uses ultrasound to stimulate the body’s own collagen. This system is relatively new to the market, and also uses acoustic imaging to enable the practitioner to see the layers beneath the skin to ensure a uniform and accurate application of the ultrasound waves. This differs significantly from any other device, which typically uses radio frequency or lasers to stimulate the skin.


But, the first question about ultrasound for skin rejuvenation is: how does it work?  Ultherapy is currently the only technology that precisely and consistently heats specific tissues to the optimal temperatures for collagen contraction. A screen image allows the physician to visualize the level of treatment before performing it. The same layer that the surgeons tighten when they perform surgical face lifts is targeted in the neck and face with the ultrasound energy which goes deeper than any other energy device, 4.5 mm and 3.5 mm for the deep skin collagen production.  Is FDA approved for 3 different depths: 4.5 mm, 3 mm and 1.5 mm.  The two deeper depths are used for lifting and tightening whereas 1.5 mm depth transducer is utilized for softening surface wrinkles.


The treatment takes from 45 to 90 minutes depending on the area(s) treated.  What you can expect to feel is something like a hot prickling sensation to short but intense bursts of discomfort”.  The big advantage is that patients can be given oral medications or local anesthetic, but the gran majority are able to tolerate a properly performed treatment with just a cold air blowing on their skin.


Subtle, yet significant tightening and lifting of the skin that Ulthera provides. It is less expensive than a traditional facelift, has no downtime, and no bruising or swelling. Although many patients see immediate lifting results, the ultimate results happen gradually over time.  It can take up to 2-3 months for optimal rejuvenation.   Ulthera impressive satisfaction rate is about 90% in some clinical studies. But, what is most important is the hands holding the device than the device it self, for optimal results find a specialist.
