Ulthera Facelift results
Ulthera, or Ultherapy, is a non-invasive skin tightening machine. It uses High-Intensity Focus Ultrasound HIFU technology. The machine is equipped with several transducers that send waves, in virtual needles, to different depths (1.5, 3, 4.5 mm). The waves create coagulation points to induce the build of collagen and other matrix protein.
What is an ulthera facelift?
“Ultherapy is a minimally invasive technique that lifts and tightens the skin of your face, neck, and décolletage. Ultrasound energy stimulates your natural collagen and elastin production. Resulting in natural-looking outcomes. Additionally, we can use this procedure to treat specific areas, such as a brow lift or jaw lift.”
Is it only effective on the skin, or does it affect muscle layers?
“Ultrasound waves have been used for diagnostic purposes in medicine for more than 50 years. Thus their safety is well proven. Therapeutic ultrasound devices, on the other hand, use the power of these waves to promote collagen production. In both the skin and the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), the fibrous tissue that surrounds face muscles. This has the effect of raising the skin and muscle layers. Therefore a good therapeutic ultrasound equipment like Ultherapy can tighten the skin and lift the facial features.”
Your trained and experienced Ultherapy provider will completely discuss your issues, assess your skin, and establish whether Ultherapy is likely to be successful for you during your initial consultation at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center in Edmonton. In some instances, patients may benefit from combining Ultherapy with other procedures, like injectables. A surgical facelift may suit men and women with more serious concerns.
