Ultherapy is often regarded as a great option for patients with moderate facial sagging, and in fact has won year after year as The Best Noninvasive Treatment. Generally Considered the most powerful skin-tightening and skin-lifting tool, Ultherapy is designed to be a one-and-done treatment for results that last over a year
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment using ultrasound waves to tighten the skin and is one of the only treatments safe enough to be used under the eyes. The treatment can tighten skin that has become lax and can also reduce and eliminate aging signs. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage
Ultherapy combines ultrasound imaging AND micro-focused ultrasound therapy to deliver tint points of heat. This is a SINGLE Treatment with NO downtime. Ultherapy currently addresses 3 depths of tissue: 4.5mm, 3.0mm, and 1.5mm deep. To help offer some perspective, lasers usually concentrate on less than 1mm of surface tissue, and RadioFrequency can reach up to about 2.5mm deep on the face. The ONLY noninvasive way to reach the SMAS layer is Ultherapy or a FaceLift!
Did you know that the IDEAL “sweet spot” for neo-collagenesis to occur is 60 – 70 degrees, Celsius? The Ultherapy force soundwaves to intersect and deposit exactly 65 degrees Celsius each and every time. Because RadioFrequency pushes heat through the surface of the skin and bulk heats, it can only get up to ~42 degrees Celsius, which is considered sub-optimal. Lasers operate at significantly HIGHER levels of heat more in the ablative zone, over 100 degree Celsisus and have longer recovery time. Therefore, Ultherapy is the perfect device to lift, tighten and stimulate collagen without surgical procedures!
There is no preparation for this treatment. You will have a full consulation to discuss your concerns prior to treatment. A ProNox will be available to help you stay comfortable during the procedure. You will have a tingling sensation under the skin during treatment, but is very tolerable with or without ProNox. The Pro-Nox™ Aesthetic System uses a 50/50 combination of inhaled oxygen and nitrous oxide to provide fast-acting pain relief. Treatment will take 30-90 minutes depending on what area/s you are being treated.
Have you opened a new location, redesigned your shop, or added a new product or service? Don't keep it to yourself, let folks know. You may see some immediate affect post-treatment, as in a Full Face and Neck Treatment there are approximately 15,000 tiny Thermal Coagulation Points (TCPs) all working hard to regenerate lost collagen. You will experience some tissue contraction immediately upon delivery, but the REAL change with collagen production takes time: between 3 – 5 months to fully optimize. Results are long-lasting, and our practices routinely report patients coming back “on their own” 18 – 24 months later for some type of maintenance treatment.
