HIGH INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND (ULTHERAPY)
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a relatively new cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that some consider a non-invasive replacement for face-lifts. It uses ultrasound energy to encourage the body to produce both collagen and elastin, which results in firmer skin while maintaining a natural look.
UltherapyⓇ is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow while also improving lines and wrinkles on the chest. It uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. This collagen-boosting treatment uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to target the deep structural layers of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface. It also incorporates ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the actual layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial. After treatment, the body’s tissue repair process stimulates the production of new collagen, creating a natural lifting effect.
UltherapyⓇ is a non-surgical procedure with minimal to no downtime, and the safety and efficacy of UltherapyⓇ has also been established through clinical studies with over a million treatments performed worldwide.
- Skin lifts and tones over time
- A full-face treatment takes 1 hour or longer and produces noticeable results that last 1 year or longer
- Mild redness and mild swelling immediately after treatment is experienced and this usually resolves in 1 to 2 hours
