What is Ultherapy?
The Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive lift procedure that delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
How does it work?
It uses micro-focused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) to lift and tighten the skin through multiple mechanisms, with the use of handpieces that target 1.5mm (upper dermis), 3.0mm (deep dermis) and 4.5mm (SMAS – superficial muscular aponeurotic system , the upper muscle layer).
Initial lift: thermally-induced collagen coagulation, denaturation and contraction within precise and well defined lesions.
Later lift: inflammatory wound-healing response which stimulates long term tissue remodelling and leads to further lifting and tightening.
