Ultherapy

OVERVIEW

Ultherapy, or Ulthera system, is nowadays the most popular and best US-FDA-cleared non-invasive skin treatment that can safely rejuvenate your skin to look tight and youthful. This aims to tighten and lift up the skin, so your fine lines, wrinkles, facial volume loss and also the décolletage are enhanced. And, your face and neck are lifted and tightened instantly without surgery or any visible downtime.

WHY ULTHERAPY?

Typically, the candidates decide on Ultherapy treatments due to their aging or sagging skin which naturally occurs from some routine behaviors and unavoidable external factors such as aging, alcohol consumption, smoking, unhealthy diet, inadequate sleep, stress, UV rays, pollution, etc. All these factors can deteriorate collagen and elastin underneath your skin, so fine lines appear, and overtime wrinkles form, and sagging skin becomes visible. 

Fortunately, by utilization of state-of-the-art technology, Ultherapy helps rebuild the new collagen and elastin, and repair the old one to restore aging and sagging skin for a younger and natural look.

HOW ULTHERAPY WORKS?

Ultherapy is the non-surgical skin tightening and lifting solution that uses high-intensity micro-focused ultrasound technology. 

By incorporating the advantages from other HIFU machines with the Ulthera DeepSEE transducer (ultrasound imaging technology that enables a clear visualization of depths up to 8 mm down the dermal layers), dermatologists can deliver the heating energy directed precisely and accurately to the specific layer under the skin or superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) without impacting the surface of your skin and bone.

Ulthera treatment is personalizable to match the unique skin characteristics of each individual by selecting appropriate energy and focal depth of the energy delivered to where it benefits most with no downtime. Then, the heating energy induces collagen denaturation and synthesis, and the treated skin areas are tightened and lifted immediately. And a much more visible result will be achieved within 3 months.
