Age brings wisdom, with it comes unwanted aging lines in our face. It also causes the skin and underlying muscles of the face, neck, forehead, cheeks, jaw line to loosen, sag and slump. Other than face-lift, which is still the treatment of choice in many cases, we have a new alternative Ulthera.
What does it do in medical or scientific terms: It uses a focused ultrasound beam to cause sub-dermal coagulation deep below the skin in the sagging facial muscle layers causing them to shrink and tighten.
During treatment, the Ulthera hand piece fires hundreds of caucused Ultrasonic points to heat and coagulate the underlying deep layers below the skin to heat and promote collagen growth, while leaving the surface unaffected. The neo-genesis of this new collagen both lifts and tightens the entire treated area of the face or the body.
Treatment with Ulthera is called Ultherapy. It is used for cosmetic purpose only to rejuvenate and tighten the neck and the jaw line, eliminate turkey neck, regain youthful sleek neck appearance. It also helps sagging lower eyelids and lateral brows.
Ultrasound is sonic energy that is above the hearing limits of humans.
