Ulthera: The Facelift Without Surgery

September 02,2015 | Posted by: Erin Docherty

Ever wish you could tighten and lift sagging skin on your face and neck? But don’t want to undergo facelifting surgery and its associated risks? Your wish could be granted with Ulthera.

Uthera is an innovative medical device that offers a non-surgical solution to facial skin laxity. It uses focused ultrasound energy to address the same tissues of the face and upper neck that are affected in a surgical facelift.

Why Ulthera?

It’s inevitable that as we age some of the youthful contours of the face are lost. While lines, wrinkles and hollows can be corrected with cosmetic injectables and the complexion can be improved with skin resurfacing, the firmness of the skin needs a different approach to treat it effectively.

Skin tightening devices such as Ulthera target the skin’s deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, tightening the underlying tissue structure without damaging the outer layers of skin. This heating of the deep dermis and sub-dermal layers of the skin damages collagen in a controlled way, promoting the body’s natural production of collagen over the ensuing months.

The Ulthera system can be used for creating a more defined jaw line, firming the skin under the chin and on the neck, tightening the skin on the cheeks and reducing sagging around the eyes.

The treatment takes around one hour and typically involves no downtime.

Extensive clinical trials conducted at leading institutions such as Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital and use in more than 1,000 patients worldwide confirm the Ulthera System has an excellent safety profile and delivers measurable results in suitable patients after just one treatment, although these results will vary among individuals.

Ulthera is available at The Cosmetic Medicince Centre. To find out more about this revolutionary treatment, contact one of our experts today!
