- What is ultherapy?
Ultherapy in San Diego is the one and only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for elevating the skin on the neck, chin, and eyebrow and enhancing the lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. This process makes the use of microfocused ultrasound in order to elevate and tighten the loose skin overtime with zero downtime.
- How is it different from other procedures?
This is the non invasive treatment that makes the use of ultrasound to trigger the formation of new collagen found deep below the skin surface. The production of new collagen may take time, so the results may take time too, around two to three months and sometimes six months as well. The process may take around 30 to 90 minutes on the basis of the area being treated and zero downtime later. It is also the only process that makes the use of ultrasound imaging which lets the experts to actually check the layers of tissue being focused on during the treatment and make sure that the energy is deposited just where it would be the most beneficial.
- Can it replace the facelift?
This treatment deals with treating the deep foundational layer being acknowledged in the cosmetic surgery but it will not duplicate the outcomes of a surgical facelift. Ultherapy is an amazing option, but particularly for those who are reluctant to go for surgery and for those patients who would like to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
- How is it different from laser treatment?
Ultherapy makes the use of sound energy which entails exceptional property that lets it to bypass the skin surface for treating the depths not aligned with any another non invasive cosmetic equipment. Ultherapy ultrasound triggers the collagen production in the skin’s foundation that leads to clinically lift the tissue significantly in over two to three months. Some lasers only work on light energy which may not be able to permeate the deeper skin layers. Normally, the laser treatments only treat the superficial skin and are not approved by the FDA to lift your skin.
- How long do the effects last?
As the procedure triggers the person’s own collagen production, the time the results may last depends on the person. The treatment may produce new collagen on the inside, but the person’s natural aging process will determine how long does it takes to see the apparent results on the outside. You may also need future touch treatments to have more control on your aging process which again varies by the person.
