Ultherapy – Ultrasound Skin Tightening
“Ultherapy is a non-surgical, lifting procedure that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables physicians, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. . This has a firming and strengthening effect on the skin and smooths out lines and wrinkles on the face and body.”
Ulthera Treatment Protocol
Typically, just one treatment, which takes 60 to 90 minutes, is needed. Small amounts of focused ultrasound energy help prompt new collagen to be made. Ultherapy can be somewhat uncomfortable, which is eased with topical numbing and pain medication.
