What is Ultherapy?

Portrait of mature smiling blond woman | LaserMedAging skin is inevitable, both gravity and time plays its toll. However, many specialists declare that you can correct aging skin to a more youthful appearance with Ultherapy. In fact, this procedure is said to lift the skin for renewed appearance without undergoing surgery.

What is Ultherapy?

According to Derma Network, Ultherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure developed to reduce various signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines. The procedure involves working below the surface of the skin. And unlike other procedures, it does not damage the outer layer. Instead, the skin is tightened, much firmer and lifted with the use of ultrasound technology.

The utilization of ultrasound also allows a physician to see the layers of skin. This confirms that the vitality is distributed to where it will have the largest impact.

How it Works

Ultherapy works by making use of ultrasound. It generates images of the inner layers of the skin plus it shoots “life giving” heat into those layers. As it happens, it is the heat that actually creates new collagen within the layers. And it is the collagen that firms and tightens the skin.

Areas of the Body That Can be Treated

For the most part, the procedure is used to treat facial and upper neck aging. As well, it can be used for specific areas such as the jaw line, lower or upper face, neck or forehead. As well, treatment can be safely used on the whole area.

Advantages

Compared to other nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, Ultherapy is safer and is more precise leading to much better results. This is because it utilizes ultrasound technology to make images and treat the skin. What is more, when compared to having traditional facelift surgery, Ultherapy has far less down time.

Who Should Consider the Procedure?

Good candidates for the procedure are people who have skin that is less firm or sagging. However, it is best to consult a doctor to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
