Can you really take years off your appearance without having to go under the knife? There’s now a non-invasive facelift that uses ultrasound energy to refresh and rejuvenate the face, and it’s known as Ultherapy. But just how does it work, and is it really effective?
Non-invasive facelift with Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a non-invasive anti-aging therapy that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. It improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by lifting the skin above the eyebrows, as well as on the neck and chin. Ultherapy can also be used to treat lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.It is an in-office treatment that takes about 45 minutes to complete.
How it works
The ultrasound gel is first placed on the skin, and then the Ulthera hand piece is moved over the face. Ultherapy emits ultrasonic waves that heat the tissue below the skin, and strengthens the foundation by kick-starting the production of collagen and elastin. This helps to firm the skin, and also lifts the underlying tissues in the months following the procedure.
Ultherapy provides superior skin tightening results,because the focused ultrasound waves penetrate down to the deep layers of the skin, which are normally targeted during a surgical facelift.
What to expect
There is no downtime after Ultherapy, and risks are minimal. After treatment there will be visible improvement in the tone and texture of the skin, and fine lines and wrinkles will be minimized.
