Ultherapy® – the Noninvasive Lift
As we age, our skin loses its youthful elasticity and begins to sag. The first areas where this becomes noticeable are in the face, with drooping eyebrows, hollow cheeks, and fullness under the chin. A surgical procedure such as a facelift is known to tighten the face and smooth out wrinkles, but did you know there’s another option? With Ultherapy, you can lift and rejuvenate your face and neck completely noninvasively! Here’s what you need to know:
Ultherapy is the only noninvasive treatment for lifting the face that has been FDA-cleared. The procedure is safe to treat some of the most common areas of concern such as sagging around the neck, under the chin, and the forehead. Now, the treatment has also been cleared to smooth out wrinkles in the chest area as well! Several areas can be treated during one session to help you achieve full-facial rejuvenation for a younger appearance.
It uses the power of ultrasound energy
So, how does Ultherapy actually work without the use of surgery? Using the power of ultrasound energy, Ultherapy targets deep layers of tissue, without the use of incisions or injections. When directed at the target area, the deeper tissues are heated, stimulating natural collagen and elastin growth. This new collagen and elastin create the structure needed to tighten and lift the skin. This process happens over the course of the next two to three months.
There’s no downtime
Not only is the Ultherapy treatment process pain-free, it also requires no downtime! This means you can return to your normal activities right away. The only side effects you may experience are some mild redness, swelling, or tingling in the first few hours. With no downtime required, you won’t have to clear your busy schedule to get treatment or take time off work or exercise like you would for a surgical procedure.
