Ultherapy is a non-surgical face treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any surgery or downtime. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation tissue below the skin that is typically addressed in a face lift, without surgery. It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure that the energy is deposited precisely where it will be most effective. Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin and in the connective tissue layers of the face in order to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. As a result, the skin will actually lift and tone over time. Collagen is a natural protein that give skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm, toned, and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its elasticity and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. In the skin, Ultherapy jump starts a repair process that produces fresh, new collagen. Additionally, the deep ultrasound treatment allows for tightening of the facial connective tissue which allows improvement of contours of the neck and jawline, such as early jowls and neck excess. Treatment of the upper face can have excellent effects on raising the brow, improving the upper lids, and opening the eye.
