Not a facelift, but an uplift — Ultherapy is a non-invasive lifting and toning procedure that gradually strengthens and tones your facial skin from deep within. The result is tighter, firmer, better-fitting skin!*
This new, non-invasive lifting and toning procedure targets the same facial tissue as a surgical facelift. The major benefit is that the surface of the skin is not disrupted as with a surgical procedure. In February 2013, Ultherapy was featured on iVillage.com!
With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, and no fast, radical change. Instead you get a more natural, less dramatic, healthy-looking facial rejuvenation without the side effects of invasive facial surgery.*
There is no specific preparation required prior to Ultherapy treatment. You practitioner however, may suggest over the counter or prescribed medication be taken to maintain comfort.
Comfort levels vary from person to person and the area that is to be treated. Your practitioner will discuss this with you prior to treatment. Typically, the discomfort is short lived and lasts only for the duration of the treatment session.
Your skin may take on a flushed appearance for a few hours immediately after treatment. This is normal and will diminish quickly. You may also have a bit of slight swelling for a few days, as well as some tingling on touch. This is also normal. The mild swelling should diminish in a few days, while the tingling may persist for a few weeks. These effects will clear up on their own. In very rare cases there may be some mild bruising or numbness.*
With Ultherapy, you can simply resume your day’s activities after a single, 30-60 minute in-office treatment.*
Though you may notice a short-term boost in improved facial skin tone, the natural process of creating new, more elastic skin unfolds slowly over 2-3 months.* Some people have reported improvements over periods lasting as long as 6 months.
While ultrasound does not duplicate the dramatic results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an excellent alternative for those who do not want a surgical facelift. Schedule your uplifting consultation today!
Non-surgical Ultherapy uses a special ultrasound device combined with the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. This FDA approved procedure stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin. This stimulation targets facial tissue including those typically targeted in a surgical facelift. It does this without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Unlike lasers, which work from the outside-in, Ultherapy moves beyond the surface of the skin, to target the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen is found. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin in a non-invasive fashion.
The Ultherapy ultrasound device does 2 things. It is placed on the skin to give the practitioner a picture of the skin. This allows them to determine which areas need to be treated. The same device is then used to deliver the actual treatment itself. The treatment allows new collagen to be formed, lifting the skin into a more youthful position. This gives the appearance of younger, more vibrant skin and a more youthful appearance.*
