Ulthera Face Lift

Ulthera: Face Lift without surgery

Ulthera (Ultrasound Therapy): a new generation that tightens up the muscular layer resulting in lifting. This technology works well for face lift, brow lift and double chin. Ultherapy' is a new type of nonsurgical cosmetic procedure for achieving skin reminiscent of an earlier time. The Ulthera System is used by physicians to precisely deliver acoustic sound waves deep into the skin to thermally initiate the body's own rejuvenative mechanisms. This is done with the help of acoustic imaging for seeing the layers of soft tissue before treating. This novel ultrasound combination promises to set a new standard in the aesthetics industry.

Clinical evaluation at Northwestern University has shown that one full face Ultherapy treatment can produce significant and satisfying tightening and lift. Findings of three independent physician evaluators and quantitative assessment of photographs revealed that 9 of 10 treated subjects demonstrated clinically significant eyebrow lift at 90 days, resulting in less hooding and a more open look to the eyes. Subjects reported firmer, tighter skin in other areas of the face and an overall refreshed appearance as well.

In this 30-minute, completely noninvasive procedure, the practitioner gradually moves the flat surface of the ultrasound applicator over each region of the face. The sound waves deliver small, controlled amounts of energy into the deep layers of skin and soft tissue while sparing the upper layers. The procedure has an excellent safety profile, is tolerated without need for an anesthetic, and the patient can return to his or her daily routine immediately.
