Whаt Iѕ Ulthеrаpy?
Ulthera or Ultherapy is one of Edmonton’s most effective non-surgical facelifts for naturally shaping the face and removing deep wrinkles. Ultherapy will lift your cheeks and give you the contour jawlines and V-shaped face you’ve always desired. Albany Cosmetic and Laser Center is pleased to present Ulthera in Edmonton. Ulthera produces virtual needles (not real) of Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) that penetrate the face’s deep muscles and fatty tissues. As a result, the treatment is designed to provide a substantial facelift without injections or surgery. This layer of fatty and fibrous tissues is referred to as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS). The HIFU beams cause controlled coagulation, which stimulates the body’s natural collagen and elastin production.
Are Ulthera Results Permanent?
Your body works like a machine to build collagen and break down collagen. Ulthera will assist your body in producing more collagen, but you will still be breaking down that new collagen over time. You can expect your initial results to last about two years, with each person’s response being unique, of course.
The technique requires little preparation. Before and soon after the treatment, normal eating, drinking, exercise, and work routines can be maintained. Before treatment, you should remove any makeup and other skincare products from the treatment area. You may take pain-relieving or anti-inflammatory medicine before the treatment. If these drugs impair your ability to drive, arrange for a ride to the office following treatment.
Our Ulthera expert will first clean the area to be treated of any oil or residue and then apply an ultrasonic gel. The Ultherapy device is pressed against the skin, and we will modify the device’s settings using an ultrasound reader. Following that, ultrasound energy is supplied to the targeted locations. During treatment, you may experience brief, intermittent heat and tingling sensations. To alleviate any discomfort, pain medication might be supplied. The applicator is withdrawn after the process. Depending on the therapy, a single operation might last up to 90 minutes. Ultherapy treatment on the chest takes around 30 minutes, compared to 60 to 90 minutes on the face and neck.
Are there any adverse effects after Ultherapy?
Heat and tingling sensations normally diminish shortly after the treatment. In the hours following the operation, the treated skin regions may become flushed or red, and temporary sensations such as tingling, swelling, and discomfort may occur. In rare situations, bruising or numbness may occur; however, these normally resolve within a few days of the operation.
What to anticipate following Ultherapy
Ultherapy is often linked with little downtime. Following therapy, normal activities such as work, exercise, and socializing can be resumed immediately. Ultherapy can yield visible improvements within a few days, depending on your body’s ability to manufacture new collagen. Typically, improvement lasts up to three months. The effects will endure as long as your body produces new collagen and the normal aging process resumes. You can determine if future sessions are necessarily based on your skin’s response to Ultherapy.
What is the cost of therapy?
- Numerous factors govern Ultherapy costs:
- the region or areas to be treated, the total number of sessions
- Because the precise cost varies depending on the circumstances of each case, contact us for a consultation to determine the final cost. Insurance companies do not cover therapy.
Ulthera Different Transducers
The SMAS layer is located at a depth of 4.5mm from the facial surface and means a layer of tissue that covers, surrounds, and attaches to the deeper tissues and structures of the face. When this layer is loosened, the facial muscle gets sagged, making you look older. By delivering energy to the muscle fascia and creating focal coagulation points, Ulthera tightens the muscle fascia and gets excellent lifting results.
This penetration depth guarantees excellent effects on wrinkles and enhances skin tightening and skin tone improvement.
By delivering HIFU energy to the epidermis layer, you can get various treatment effects like wrinkle reduction around the eyes and the mouth where the skin is thin and skin tightening.
Is Ulthera painful?
Most of the clients who had Ultherapy were described as painful treatments. We advise the clients to take 400 mg of ibuprofen 1 hour before the procedure. We can help by applying freezing cream or performing nerve blocks in the jawlines.
