How Ultherapy Works

41485934Facial aging issues range from forehead creases to volume loss in the upper cheeks to sagging skin in the lower third of the face. Facelift surgery has been the standard cosmetic treatment of choice for these facial aging concerns. But what if you’re not keen about having surgery?

Since its introduction in 2009, Ultherapy has changed how the world perceives cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Ultherapy works like a facelift but utilizes ultrasound waves instead of surgery. It improves the appearance of sagging facial tissue by stimulating the skin to produce more collagen and elastin. Both are naturally occurring proteins that make the skin appear more youthful.

Ultherapy doesn’t involve needles or anesthesia, so there isn’t any downtime. Apart from Ultherapy’s ability to restore the face to its youthful position and tighten facial skin at the same time, the ultrasound imaging technology used in the procedure ensures that the ultrasound waves are delivered accurately.

Ultherapy is ideal for the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Sagging skin along the jawline
  • Drooping cheeks
  • Moderate lines and folds around the nose and mouth
  • Sagging brows
  • Varying skin texture and tone

Although Ultherapy can produce results similar to a facelift, it is actually not a substitute for facial rejuvenation surgery. Severe sagging issues in the middle and lower thirds of the face can be best addressed with a facelift.
