Ultherapy Facelift: The Safe Non-Surgical Facelift
The power of ultrasound has many uses in medicine, and with great effect. One of the new areas where ultrasound is making a mark is in providing a safe and non-surgical facelift in the procedure known as Ultherapy facelift (or Ulthera).
By using ultrasound, the procedure makes use of the body’s own regenerative processes to stimulate collagen production which then gradually and naturally lifts the skin. The procedure is perfect for use on the chin, brow, neck, and chest areas. The procedure is safe and FDA-cleared. It’s been used in over 350,000 treatments worldwide and every Ultherapy practitioner has to undergo extensive procedural training.
Typical Ultherapy facelift treatment times are 60 to 90 minutes for a face and neck procedure while a chest procedure takes about 30 minutes. The BHRC medical spa specialists can give a more accurate timeline depending on your individual treatment plan.
Results are visible from the 8th week and can last up to a year or more. For instance, an Ultherapy brow lift can show results in as little as 30 days. Chin Ultherapy significantly reduces the visibility of sagging skin and eliminates the double-chin look to quickly regain your youthful looks. The treatment is effective in reducing the flabby “turkey neck” look by tightening the skin on your neck area. Decotellage Ultherapy works by transforming your chest area in removing unappealing lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy reaches the lower layers of skin similar to surgical facelifts, which gives it an advantage over laser treatments, resulting in more long-term effects. The sound waves penetrate nearly 1/4 inch below the skin and has strong imaging power which allows the practitioner to see what they are doing and accurately target problem areas.
While the procedure is safe and painless, there may be minimal side effects on very sensitive individuals. These side effects may include an initial flushed appearance, skin tenderness, and some temporary bruising or tenderness. The side effects typically last a day or two after your treatment session.
