Ultherapy is a treatment that uses microfocused ultrasound to control and prevent facial and body aging without surgery. It is ideal for those patients with mild or moderate flabbiness looking for a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment.
Ultherapy is a safe, non-invasive, non side effect, no down time procedure that does not require additional care or post treatment.
It is very useful when patients want to lift the whole face, the chin, neck, as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the neckline, lift their eyebrows and improve their eye bags appearance.
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical procedure approved by the American FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to lift the skin.
Frequently asked questions
1. Is it safe?
It is a very safe treatment once the doctor uses a screen to monitor in real time what is happening in your skin and underneath it, making sure the ultrasound light does not touch either your bones or nerves.
2. How long does it take?
Length will depend on the area to be treated. It usually takes between 30 and 60 minutes for a facial procedure. Patients do not need additional time to recover and they can go directly to work after the session.
3. ¿Is it painful?
You may feel uncomfortable when ultrasound energy is released, however the pain is bearable. Very sensitive patients can choose sedation which is very good option.
4. How would my face look like after the procedure?
Your skin could turn red right after the session but it will fade after a few hours. You may also experience swelling for a few days or tingling for a few weeks. Other less common effects are bruises and lack of skin sensitivity. All these effects are mild and will disappear soon.
5. Why is this an innovative procedure?
Ultherapy technology penetrates the skin´s superficial layer and stimulates collagen production in the foundational layer. This type of technology works from the inside-out without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Patients love this procedure because Ultherapy stimulates natural collagen growth to provide subtle and gradual results that continuously improve over time.
