Ultrasound Tightening (Ultherapy)
Improve your appearance and psychology by acquiring a youthful appearance, with the Ultherapy tightening method.
Ultherapy: Non-invasive lift with ultrasounds
The passage of time, apart from the wrinkles it inevitably brings, also reduces the collagen in our face. This valuable ingredient of our body which gifts firmness and elasticity to the skin, and makes our appearance seem more youthful.
But as we grow older, the collagen is gradually decreased, resulting in the face loosening and losing its volume. Until recently, the solution for a complete facial rejuvenation was the lift.
But today, non-invasive treatments exist, which can delay the need for surgery. Ultherapy, a non-invasive ultrasound treatment, is one of them. With the help of the ultrasound, which activates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen in a safe way. It is a treatment especially loved by men too, due to the natural result it offers and the short time it needs.
Ultrasound Tightening (Ultherapy)
Improve your appearance and psychology by getting a youthful look.
How does it work?
Ultherapy channels focused energy through ultrasound to the soft tissues beneath the surface of the skin. By penetrating the outer layers of the skin, it targets the deeper tissues.
The energy of the ultrasound passes into the deeper layers of the connective tissue and the muscle layers of the skin with precision. There, generating mild heat, it stimulates collagen production and strengthens the foundations of the skin. It works from the inside out in order to lift and tighten the skin.
The treatment focuses selectively and with absolute accuracy on multiple levels of the problem areas, achieving a three-dimensional, natural and gradual “building” of the face (contour, neck, eyes).
To which areas can it be applied?
It can be applied to the entire face or to individual areas. The most popular areas of application of this treatment are: the contour of the face, the area of the eyes, the chin, the neck, the cleavage.
It eliminates sagging under the chin, the neck, and the area of the cleavage. It corrects the contour of the face and improves the image of the forehead and eyes by eliminating bags under the eyes.
What does Ultherapy achieve?
The cheekbones are lifted, the contour of the face is remodeled, the neck and cleavage get a youthful look, and the gaze “opens” and does not seem tired.
It is also a very good method for wrinkle correction on the upper lip. The skin looks firmer and toned, and the contour of the face lifted immediately after the application.
How long does the result of the treatment last?
The effect of skin tightening and lifting is completed within a 2-3 month period after treatment.
While the process of collagen production continues for another 6 months after Ultherapy treatment. But the effect of the treatment on the face can last -depending on the case- up to 3 years.
How is the application done?
The doctor locates the layers of the skin and the muscles during the treatment, and “targets” the deeper layers which support the skin from the inside out, without affecting the upper layers at all.
This way, a visible lift and tightening of the skin is achieved. The energy targets the deeper layers of connective tissue and the muscle layers, and the well-known SMAS, the layer which the plastic surgeon transforms into a surgical face-lift, with precision.
The shrinking achieved in the deeper layers leads to an immediate tightening and, finally, to a visible -non-invasive- lifting. Subsequently, the doctor selectively targets a more superficial level, in the deeper layer of the skin, stimulating collagen production.
Is the application painful?
The procedure is bloodless without leaving incisions, scars or any marks. The ultrasound targets the depth and not the surface of the skin. The only thing you feel after the end of the Ultherapy treatment is a mild irritation on the place where the application has been made, and redness is observed. In a few hours these annoyances disappear.
How many Ultherapy sessions are required and how long do they last?
A single ultrasound treatment is enough to show the desired tightening effect. The duration of the application is usually 40 minutes for the whole face and 20 minutes for the eye area.
Are there any risks, contraindications or side effects?
This treatment does not cause photosensitivity and can be performed at any time of the year. Also its action is not affected by sunlight exposure. It is the only device for the face that has such an important certification by the FDA (American Food and Drug Administration) for the safety and effectiveness of treatment.
