The Non-invasive Lift Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your face to your body.
This latest technology name as HIFU, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a non-surgical face, neck and body treatments. It uses Ultrasound to lift and tone loose or sagging skin without any significant downtime.
HIFU targets deep tissues and muscles below the skin, an area typically reached with cosmetic surgery.
HIFU addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin by reconditioning and renewing the collagen underlying the skin. It can lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. It can also improve the appearance of loose skin in the jowls or neck.
HIFU delivers focused ultrasound energy deep below the skin surface to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen without harming the outer layer of the skin. As a result, skin will lift and tone over a period of several weeks. Patients may see some initial effect but most lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.
HIFU is an effective “uplift” therapy, an option for those are not ready for a facelift surgery or injections or for those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
