Age may bring wisdom, but it also causes the flesh on the forehead, cheeks, jawline and neck to loosen and slump. Hence, Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a non-invasive device that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift the face and neck.
During treatment, the Ultherapy hand piece heats the underlying tissues of the skin to promote collagen growth, while leaving the surface unaffected. The amplification of collagen both lifts and tightens the treated area.
Ultrasound is sonic energy that is above the hearing limits of humans (though it can be heard by some animals, like dogs and cats). The vibrations caused by ultrasound can be used to clean teeth, create internal images of the body, and, in the case of Ultherapy, deliver energy into deep skin tissue for cosmetic purposes.
One main advantage of Ultherapy is how accurately it targets energy. Over 95 percent of the ultrasound heat goes to the intended spot, leaving a mere five percent to go above and beyond the intended treatment…
