It is an FDA-approved treatment that has become increasingly popular in the world of cosmetic dermatology due to its ability to provide natural-looking results without the need for surgery.
Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy deep into the skin’s layers, which triggers the body’s natural production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and firmness to the skin, but its production decreases with age, leading to sagging and wrinkles. By stimulating the body’s production of collagen, Ultherapy can tighten and lift sagging skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
During an Ultherapy treatment, you will lie down on a treatment table, and the dermatologist will apply a specialized ultrasound gel to the skin’s surface. This gel helps to transmit the ultrasound waves into the deeper layers of the skin. The dermatologist will then use a handheld device that emits ultrasound energy to the targeted areas. Patients may feel a warming sensation as the ultrasound energy is delivered to the skin. This sensation is a sign that the treatment is working, and it is not usually painful. The treatment typically takes between 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the area being treated.
