Objectives of Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a non-surgical technique that uses focused ultrasound to treat sagging skin .
Ulthera® is the only FDA approved ultrasound based aesthetic technique.
More than 500,000 patients worldwide have already successfully undergone this treatment. Scientific studies conclude that an Ulthera® ultrasound facelift icomes very close to the outcome of a surgical facelift .
Ulthera® acts directly on the SMAS, the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system, the same dense and solid structure targeted by all current lifting techniques to obtain a lasting, natural-looking result.
The objective of this treatment is to obtain a lifting effect in a single session, without surgery and without social eviction. With Ultherapy, you can firm and tighten the oval and lower face, raise the eyebrows and eyelids, smooth the skin of the neckline, tighten the neck and refine a double chin.
Who is Ultherapy for?
Ultherapy is indicated for women and men with mild to severe sagging skin in the periorbital region, the oval of the face, the neck and the décolleté.
It is ideal for people who do not yet wish to resort to invasive, surgical methods such as a facelift.
However, Ultherapy treatment is ideal for patients wishing to maintain the results of a facelift .
An initial consultation with your specialist is essential to find out if this treatment is suitable for your particular situation.
