What You Should Know About the New Non Surgical Facelifts
Want to turn back the clock without going under the knife? You are not alone! While facelifts are an incredible and transformative option, not everyone wants to deal with the discomfort, cost and downtime that comes along with traditional facelift. Fortunately, there is a new option today!
Meet Ultherapy. Cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a safe and effective treatment, Ultherapy is an impressive anti-ageing option that can push rewind on your skin with no surgery or downtime.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is effective because it uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy. Your Ultherapy treatment will work to naturally lift and tighten your skin. It works so well, in fact, that Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure that has been cleared by the FDA.
Ultherapy accelerates your skin’s natural collagen production to give you that youthful glow back. The treatment promises to reverse ageing for men and women by up to one year for each month of treatment.
What Exactly Does Ultherapy Do?
Ultherapy can give you a more youthful appearance from your brow down to your chest. A customised treatment plan can be created with Ultherapy to lift skin on your neck, under your chin, and above your brow. Additionally, Ultherapy treatment has recently been approved to reduce lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
Approval from the United States’ FDA is widely considered to the golden standard in medicine. Their seal of approval is the ultimate level of assurance in both the effectiveness and safety of any medical treatment.
Not only does Ultherapy eliminate the risks associated with surgery, it also relies on the widely trusted use of ultrasound technology. Ultrasounds have been used across the medical field for more than half a century and are widely regarded as safe and effective. They have been extensively researched in clinical studies and are currently used in more than half a million treatments worldwide.
What Is It Like to Get Ultherapy Treatment?
Prior to your treatment, you’ll be given pain reliever to prevent any discomfort. The area to be treated will then be covered in gel before the Ulthera wand is moved slowly across your skin. The treatment works on a gradual and steady, millimetre by millimetre basis. Most treatment plans involve moving across the entire forehead, cheeks, jaw, and neck area.
While each patent’s experience is different, most men and women report minimal discomfort during a Ulthera treatment. The treatments typically take about an hour and most patients report a warming sensation. A few patients experience tingling and flushing for a few hours after treatment. In more unusual cases, patients can experience minor bruising and numbness for a few days after the treatment but it will clear up quickly.
