What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy™is the first and only FDA approved non-invasive device for structural tissue lifting on the face. It has been FDA cleared for noninvasive lifting of the skin on the brow, neck and chin and now includes skin on the chest. Using the ultrasound imaging screen, we can see view the tissues being treated and perform the skin lifting. Currently there is no other system on the market that can provide this function. Older less advanced skin tightening systems simply cannot compete with Ultherapy.
What can you expect?
You should not expect to see results before 6 to 12 weeks. The full effect is evident at about 6 months. The amount of tissue sagging will help us determine if more than one treatment is recommended for you.
Does Ultherapy work with other procedures?
Can you have Ultherapy with other cosmetic procedures? Yes! As we age, we get wrinkles, lose facial volume, accumlate many age spots and we get sagging neck/jaw lines. There is no single treatment that cures all of our aging problems. At Kalia Dermatology, we offer a wide range of treatments for a complete solution to restore your youthful beauty.
How does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift sagging skin in the face and neck. Ultherapy creates a facelift effect by using targeted ultrasound that focuses the energy on various layers of the skin. Ultherapy creates a microthermal coagulation that precisely heats the tissue to cause contraction and tightening of the collagen in the skin. It is this tightening of the skin that creates the lift and restores your face to a more youthful appearance.
Is Ultherapy Painful?
The earlier procedures and older models of the Ultherapy device was signficantly more painful than new machines. At Kalia Dermatology, we only carry the most advanced and current aesthetic lasers and devices, so you can rest assured that you are getting the most up to date treatment protocols. Our clients have tolerated the procedure with as little as an ibuprofen before the treatment.
