Ulthera is a non-surgical face and neck treatment which uses focused ultrasound energy that penetrates deep below the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. The results show a significant lift in tone and appearance to loose or sagging skin without any significant downtime. Ulthera’s main objective is to target deep tissue below the skin, an area typically reached with cosmetic surgery.
Anyone that has skin which has become “relaxed” to the point of looking less firm with a lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the neck or the jowls, can be a good candidate for Ulthera. Both men and women in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity have found measurable success using the Ulthera method. Ulthera is also a good option for people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. There is a broad range of people who can benefit from Ulthera, but typically those in their thirties and older are candidates. While this is not a replacement for surgery, it is a great alternative to those who want some lifting, in order to look more refreshed and toned but are not ready for surgery.
Ulthera treats mild to moderate loose or sagging skin by renewing the collagen beneath the skin. Ulthera also lifts the brow, reducing excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed appearance overall. It can also improve loose skin in the jowls or neck. Patients usually see some initial effect but most lifting and toning will take place over the next few months, as the worn collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear. The majority of patients only need one treatment, with annual touch-up treatments that help slow down the rate of skin aging.
