Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally. All these is done without any cutting or injection or surgery. It has no downtime. The technology is a very safe and time tested for effectiveness.
Ultherapy treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin of the face and body. It includes on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Moreover, it is now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, the front upper part of the chest. Ultherapy can help you achieve 10 years younger look. It gives a fresher, more youthful look from your entire upper face, all the way down to includes the neck and upper chest!
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to bring about its desired effect. It can transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for a long time. It has been more than 50 years. The Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments done worldwide, and is still counting.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging. This real time image allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating. This technology helps to ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it matter most and will be most beneficial.
The ultrasound technology between what homecare devises have and what Ultherapy does is very different.
The homecare machine delivers linear, unfocused ultrasound waves and generates heat because of tissue absorption and the attenutation of energy in the tissue.
Whereas the Ultherapy is a focused ultrasound energy. Through a proprietary technique which is a trademarked that is called HIFU (high frequency ultrasound). The headpiece uses ultrasound beams to deliver focused energy without causing peripheral tissue damage to achieve desired heating at the desired target tissue layers.
There is thus a HUGE difference in the two devices listed above. You can buy the homecare device for $29 on ebay. Whereas, the Ultherapy machine cost well over 100,000 U S dollars.
The Ultherapy® procedure stimulates the body’s own collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy. This energy is focused to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery. All of these is achieved without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. It is totally non-invasive.
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy. And, also at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin. It helps to jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment. However, the real results appear over 2−3 months, as the physiological process takes this long to achieve, as new collagen works to lift and tighten the skin. This includes the skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.
Ultherapy won’t duplicate or be able to get the results of a facelift. However, it suffice to say that it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery. This can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
