What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a US FDA approved treatment for non-surgical and non-invasive skin tightening. It has a long track record, with US FDA approval since 2009, and over 2 million treatments performed worldwide1. It is used to treat sagging skin of the face, jawline and neck as well as mild to moderate droopy eyebrows and double chin.
How does Ultherapy work?
Using MicroFocused Ultrasound with Visualisation (“MFU-V”), the Ulthera device delivers ultrasound energy to the deeper layers of skin to generate focal areas of heating known as Thermal Coagulation Points. Collagen rich layers of the skin- such as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (“SMAS”) and deep dermis are targeted. The treatment causes existing collagen to contract and triggers new collagen production- as evidenced by immediate skin tightening that further improves over the next 2-3 months. Using the patented DeepSEE® technology, the Ulthera system provides real-time ultrasound visualization of the skin down to 8mm, allowing practitioners to deliver the treatment at the optimal tissue depth and avoid injuring structures such as blood vessels or bone.
Why choose Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive and no downtime treatment, with clients returning to normal activities right away.
Ultherapy treatments have a strong safety track record- due to real time visualisation provided by the patented DeepSEE technology, which allows energy to be delivered accurately to the correct tissue plane while avoiding vital structures such as blood vessels.
Effectiveness of treatments have been shown in multiple clinical trials1,2,3, with a high patient satisfaction rate.
