Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin.
Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, the Ultherapy procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin — including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift — without disturbing the surface of the skin. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.
In some ways, Ultherapy is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure that expectant mothers may receive. A smooth handpiece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. This allows your practitioner to “see” where they will treat your skin.
But here’s the difference: With Ultherapy, that same handpiece is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin to the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift.
