Ultherapy is a new generation medical aesthetic procedure. The procedure can be briefly described as a non-surgical facelift with focused ultrasound.
The treatment aims to reach the deep tissues with the controlled trauma created by the intensified sound waves and to stretch the face. The application gives results between 1-3 months on average, and these results are permanent for up to 4 years. Ultherapy is particularly successful in cheek thinning, jowl recovery, face, lower and upper eyelid, and eyebrow lifting.
By using focused sound waves, Ulthera easily reaches 1.5-4.5 mm deep tissues that other non-surgical aesthetic procedures cannot reach. By helping to trigger collagen production in these tissues, it provides younger and firmer skin. Ulthera is a device used together with imaging ultrasound, which acts on the connective tissue without causing any damage to the skin.
Ultherapy is a one-session treatment. After a single session, skin tightening and tension occur due to the stimulation of collagen tissues in the skin, and collagen production is triggered. The best advantage of this method is that it is effective in a single session.
Ultherapy application time varies according to the area to be treated. Generally, a session takes between 30 – 60 minutes. Skin rejuvenation with focused ultrasound, which is a practical method, consists of contacting the application head carrying ultrasound waves with the patient's skin. With this method, even the deepest lower layers of the patient's skin can be viewed on the monitor.
Although Ultherapy does not give miraculous results as aesthetic surgery and facial rejuvenation and tightening procedures, it is an adequate procedure for renewing loosened and sagging tissues, stretching, and rejuvenating the skin.
Ultherapy can successfully treat loosening and sagging in cheek, chin, neck, and jowl areas, eyebrow and forehead areas, eyelids and around, and décolleté. After the treatment, problems such as burning or staining do not occur on the skin. Redness may occur for a few hours after the procedure.
Since this treatment is applied to the lower layers of the skin, not the surface, there is no damage to the upper layer of the patient's skin. For the same reason, sun rays do not pose a risk for post-treatment, and Ultherapy can be performed in all seasons without any problems.
