Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure that lifts skin on the neck, under the chin, and around the eyebrows. It can also improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the chest or cleavage area.
Ultherapy tightens and lifts the skin through focused ultrasound energy. During an Ultherapy procedure, a device takes ultrasound waves and focuses energy into tiny powerful micro-pulses, similar to how a magnifying glass can focus sunlight into a powerful beam. These pulses cause micro-wounds to which the body responds by healing itself. This triggered healing process will result in tightening and lifting of the areas treated.
Ultherapy is unique because when performed correctly (by a trained professional), it can target the SMAS layer above the muscle, which lifts and tightens the muscle. Then, Ultherapy targets the deep dermis and sometimes the more superficial dermis to build collagen in the skin, making it a multilayered treatment.
Who is a Candidate for Ultherapy?
The best candidate is someone who has some fat and a good healthy dermis in the area treated. Patients with thin skin are better candidates for other treatments offered by Dr. Leif Rogers and his team at Privet Aesthetics.
There is no downtime associated with Ultherapy. Patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment. With more than 1 million Ultherapy treatments performed worldwide, 95% of patients were still satisfied with their results a year after treatment.
