Ulthera (or Ultherapy) is a treatment procedure that can reach the connective tissue 5mm under the skin and trigger the collagen production by using focused ultrasound waves. With this procedure, the skin is tightened, the cheeks are lifted, and loosening, softening and sagging skin and subcutaneous tissues caused by the time effect and gravity are treated.
Also known as non-surgical facelift, it is a procedure that repairs not only superficial tissues but also deeper tissues. The ability to see the subcutaneous tissues during the procedure allows for shooting the site, for which the treatment has been planned. It is not possible to this with other lasers applications or procedures.
Ulthera strengthens the skin and subcutaneous connective tissues after a session that takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on the application site. Wrinkle treatment is another feature of Ulthera. In can treat particularly wrinkles in the eye contour area, around the lips and mouth, as well as on the neck and cheeks.
Ulthera is an FDA-approved device in the United States. It has no known side effect. Ulthera can be performed in combination with filling applications, Botox injections, and other medical aesthetic applications.
