What is it?
Ulthera®is an FDA approved treatment for non-invasive tissue lift.
It utilizes focused ultrasound to precisely heat tissue at multiple depths without affecting the surface of the skin. This results in a multi-dimensional lifting of sagging skin.
What to expect
An applicator placed on the treatment area and used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at the right depth below the skin while leaving the surface of the skin undisturbed.
The skin responds to the energy by stimulating the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.
Patients are able to return to normal activities. In some cases the skin can appear a pinkish or red immediately after the treatment, but usually it subsides within a few hours.
