Our faces can tell many stories, and while wrinkles might say “experience”, droopiness can say “tired”. Surgery has always been an option, but now there’s ULTHERAPY, a non-invasive ultrasound treatment for counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your skin.
The beauty of the ULTHERAPY procedure is that it uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually restore the angles of the face and underlying tissue support.
- As with ultrasound, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows your dermatologist to plan where the energy will be directed.
- This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focussed heat at just the right depth below the skin at the muscle layer to achieve a constricting effect, all the while leaving your skin undisturbed.
- Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen.
- A gradual tightening occurs, resulting in a natural lift over time.
