Ultherapy- a well-known game changer in the realm of skin tightening to reverse aging on the face and neck. It is famed for being a non-surgical, non-invasive, no- downtime treatment that has been awarded clearance by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lifting of the skin on the neck, under the chin, and above the brow. It is also known to aid in the improvement of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Utilising ultrasound imaging to determine optimal placement, Ultherapy involves the application of microfocused ultrasound energy to target the deep structural skin layers such as the subcutaneous musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS) without disrupting the skin’s surface. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, thus resulting in a facelift effect manifested in firmer skin, less sagging and fewer wrinkles.
Ultherapy is suitable for anyone looking for an anti-aging skin tightening and firming treatment. The beauty of Ultherapy lies in its versatility of application: it can be combined with other aesthetic treatment modalities to provide a synergistic effect. For example, Ultherapy can be used to induce a face slimming result which can be further enhanced by the usage of threadlifts.
Ultherapy is a well- tolerated procedure. The treatment duration is area- dependent: for example, treatment of the whole face and upper neck usually takes about 60-90 minutes, while treatment of the undereye region takes approximately 30 minutes. Any potential discomfort is managed with numbing cream prior to the procedure, with the energy level of the treatment customised to suit the patient. Results are typically seen in three months, when the facelift effect of the collagen stimulation process is made apparent.
Ultherapy is a time- honoured and reliable treatment that empowers patients with the beauty of youth- a natural glow displayed in a taut and firm appearance of the face and décolletage. Always choose to look and feel young with Ultherapy.
