Ulttherapy, or Ultrasound therapy, is a very effective and noninvasive way to boost the appearance and texture of your face. It is FDA-cleared to improve the texture and appearance of skin on the neck, the area under the chin, and also the brow area. Ultherapy has also been recently cleared to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Ultrasound therapy is one of the oldest and safest skincare technologies that has shown to yield significant cosmetic improvements with little downtime and little to no side effects.
Ultherapy: A Glance Inside
Ulttherapy has been utilized by the medical profession for years as a diagnostic tool for various conditions and pathologies. It is extremely safe and has already been used in close to 500,000 skin procedures around the globe. Ulttherapy works best on the chest, chin, neck and brow area.
Ulttherapy works by delivering ultrasonic energy to the dermis, or inner skin layer in a precise and controlled manner. This type of therapy is not a resurfacing procedure, as it does not disrupt the epidermis, or outer layer of the skin, at all. When the ultrasonic energy is methodically delivered to specific dermal areas, the body’s natural healing process is stimulated. Fibroblasts are signaled to travel to the area to begin producing more collagen, the key structural protein in our skin that maintains its shape and structure.
Most of the improvements from ulttherapy will occur during the months following your treatment. This is because it takes time for new collagen to form. That said, some patients do notice immediate improvements directly following the procedure.
