How does Ulthera®works?

The new Ulthera® is a revolution in the field of skin tightening treatments in counteracting the effects of time and gravity. It is FDA-approved for skin tightening, and it is non-invasive (hence no down time and no need for recovery time).  It is the first ever aesthetic treatment to incorporate ultrasound imaging for the visualization of tissue beneath the skin so that focused precise ultrasound energy can be delivered at prescribed depths to the fibro-muscular layer of the skin (also known as SMAS). 

A smooth applicator is placed upon your skin which projects an image onto a screen that allows your doctor to plan your treatment.  This same applicator is then used to deliver tiny little shockwaves / focused ultrasound at just the right depth, precisely to the SMAS, causing it to contract.  The energy enables a measurable lifting of the skin tissue while leaving the surface of your skin completely undisturbed.  Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen.  The result is a facelift that is non-invasive and non-surgical (no down time and recovery time).  Collagen regeneration then goes on for another 3-4 months.   The energy also triggers a healing response which overtime makes skin more elastic and more radiant.  Skin formed new and improved collagen, which gradually tightens and lifts the skin from within.  In layman’s terms, Ultherapy®creates controlled damage in the deeper layers of the skin so as to trigger the production of new collagen, resulting in a firming and lifting effect on the skin over the next 3-4 months.  It is one of the few aesthetic procedures that can trigger such an effect without damaging the surface layer of the skin.  This means that lifting effects can be achieved with no downtime, and patients are able to return to their daily activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take.  

More than 6,000 patients have been treated with Ulthera®, and Ultherapy®has shown to produce measurable lifting of lax skin.  In the FDA clinical trial, 9 out of 10 patients (an exceptionally high of 89%) had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow. This resulted in reduced skin laxity on the eyelid and a more open, youthful appearance overall.  Patients reported tighter, firmed, better-fitting skin  in other areas of the face and neck as well the cheeks and along the jaw line.  These is also an invisible result from the procedure with the creation of new, more youthful, collagen and elastin that help strengthen the skin from within.  Results developed gradually over a 3-month period following treatment and were still noticeable in patients assessed at 6-8 months after treatment.  

Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with over 50 years of use in the field of medicine, and clinical trials have demonstrated the safety of this latest application.

Who is suitable for Ulthera®?

A good candidate for Ultherapy®is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking, or feeling, less firm.  A lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “aging” skin. 

How does the procedure feel like?

There can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and very bearable, and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.  Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, you can also discuss with your doctor on options for making the experience as pleasant as possible, for instance, the application of numbing cream to the treated area prior to treatment.

How long does the procedure last?

On an average, for a full face Ultherapy®, it takes about an hour.
