The ONLY non-surgical procedure FDA-cleared to LIFT the skin!!!
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
There is a broad range of people who can benefit from Ultherapy, and typically those in their thirties and older are candidates. While this is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting, in order to look more refreshed and toned but are not ready for surgery (mentally, financially, or logistically). And then there are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effect of surgery.
How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?
Ultherapy is the only nonsurgical (no incision) cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound to specifically target the foundational layer of facial tissue that doctors address in surgery. Ultherapy heats the skin to the temperature that is optimal for collagen stimulation. The use of ultrasound also enables us to actually see the layers of skin we are treating, allowing the energy to be delivered precisely to where it will be most productive. There is typically NO DOWNTIME AT ALL.
Does it hurt?
Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, and there can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, which is temporary and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible and patients tell us they leave comfortable and happy, looking forward to the benefits to come.
What does collagen do?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy jump starts a repair process that strengthens your existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
Is it safe?
Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in medical imaging for over 50 years. In addition, the procedure has been FDA approved after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events.
Can men have it done?
Sure; both women and men globally are receiving Ultherapy.
