Ulthera Facial Rejuvenation

Ulthera Facial Rejuvenation

Ulthera, or Ultherapy, is a non-invasive option for skin tightening, and the FDA has approved it to treat sagging skin. This treatment uses ultrasound waves to treat and lift skin, and compared with invasive alternatives, it has several benefits. The procedure is commonly used for the upper face, lower face, and neck. Collagen is a protein and an important building block for the skin, making up to 70% of the protein within our skin—it helps it stay toned and supple. The skin’s foundation, the dermis, is its primary collagen source. Collagen production slows down as we age, and existing collagen begins to break down, resulting in loose skin.

Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to various skin layers below the surface; it stimulates the body’s natural healing response, triggering the growth of new collagen and strengthening of weaker collagen. The treatment works deep below the surface without harming the outer layer of the skin. Ultherapy firm tightens and lifts the skin.

Benefits include:

  • Natural-looking, gradual results
  • No incisions or scarring.
  • No downtime
  • Excellent safety record with more than 1 million treatments worldwide

The treatment session for the whole face will last 2 hours, but the duration depends on the patient and the treatment area. After undergoing Ulthera, some patients will experience slight swelling or redness that will solve in a few days.
