Ulthera is a non-surgical, non-invasive rejuvenation procedure for the face, neck, chest and body that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.
The Ulthera device uses ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin. Ultherapy treatment also stimulates the creation of new collagen, which further helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.
The beauty of this procedure is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue.
Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
