Ultherapy is a novel technology that delivers focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin thereby resulting in the formation of new collagen which over a period of 3-6 months, lifts and tightens the skin. Can ultrasound lift skin? Multiple randomized controlled trials since 2006 have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of this procedure and to date 140,000 procedures have been performed worldwide for nonsurgical face, neck and brow lifts.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that there is no downtime. It’s a lunch hour procedure and you can return to work the same day. Ultherapy is however not a face lift. Rather it’s more about slowing the clock than stopping the clock and works well for women between the ages of 35 – 60 who are showing mild to moderate laxity in their face and neck. Typically 2 treatments are recommended for best outcomes spaced 12-18 months apart. The beauty with Ultherapy is its compatibility with other procedures that can address more superficial tissues such as Botox® and facial fillers.
