Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
This energy initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck and smoothing skin on the chest.
HOW ULTHERAPY TREATMENT WORKS
Unlike lasers, radio-frequency and other technologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision. Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows our practitioner to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a face lift, it’s an exciting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery – and for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO STIMULATE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Data from a unique Ultherapy study, in which patients had an Ultherapy treatment on one side of the face and not the other, has shown a quantitative increase in the rate of collagen production resulting from the Ultherapy treatment. Analysis of the skin tissue scientifically proved the Ultherapy treatment increased the rate of collagen production an average of 1.4 fold. Specifically for collagen tyes I and II – the types most often associated with aging – on average, the rate of collagen production on the Ultherapy treated side was 42% higher compared to the untreated side.
The study quantifiably confirms for patients that the Ultherapy treatment not only shows results on the outside; it also makes a difference where it counts most – deep within the skin.
