What is UltherapyⓇ?
UltherapyⓇ is an exciting non-invasive skin tightening treatment that can help combat skin laxity for a youthful profile. By using the body’s own reparative process, UltherapyⓇ can gently and steadily raise the skin on various regions of the face and neck as well as soften the appearance of wrinkles of the décolletage.
How does UltherapyⓇ work?
UltherapyⓇ can help tighten the skin by transmitting focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the surface of the skin. Ultrasound energy is converted into heat once it has reach the sublevels of the skin where it will work to stimulate the body’s production of collagen, the main structural protein of the skin. This process is known as neocollagenesis, where new collagen is created and existing collagen is refreshed. No needles, toxins, or creams are involved in UltherapyⓇ, which help grant natural-looking results.
How long does UltherapyⓇ treatment take?
Usually, tightening the skin on the face and neck can take between 60-90 minutes, while rejuvenating the chest can take around 30 minutes. Ultimately, the duration of your UltherapyⓇ treatment will be based on the area or areas being rejuvenated.
