Since its release in 2012, Ulthera® (Ultherapy®) has been quickly growing in popularity with experts worldwide as an advanced HIFU device. Ultheraphy® is the only non- invasive procedure FDA approved to LIFT the skin in the neck, chin & brow!
Focused ultrasound energy is delivered non-invasively and heats deep tissue without affecting the surface of the skin. This causes a natural, regenerative response. Unlike other types of ultrasound, there will be a sensation of heat. Ulthera® is used to lift the skin on the face and neck. Common treatment areas include:
· Brows and forehead
· Neck (“turkey neck”)
· Stretch marks
Non-invasive ultrasound energy generates low levels of heat in the targeted skin. This stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation.
With just one treatment, HIFU pushes mature skin to start working hard again.
Smoother, firmer, and brighter skin in the months after treatment.
Your eyes will look more open, brows more lifted, fine lines softened, and pore reduced. Because of the restored elasticity, your skin will feel softer and more supple, too.
If you don’t think you need surgery yet or simply hate the thought of the knife, HIFU may be the natural facelift or neck lift alternative for you.
Don’t let gravity get you down.
