The Ultimate Is Ultherapy
Sound the trumpets for what looks like the wonder procedure of the future but is readily available today. Ultherapy combines ultrasound imaging with ultrasound heat to actually lift lax skin without disrupting the surface of the skin. That’s right, a lift without surgery. What is so amazing is that for the first time Ultherapy allows the physician to visualize the layers of soft tissue below the skin without cutting. The magic doesn’t stop there. It is reported to have a minimal amount of pain according to patients and physicians working with the treatment. Dr. Haideh Himand performed the procedure live on the Dr. Oz show and had this to say “The sensation varies from person to person… it really doesn’t need any anesthesia, it’s very mild.” “It’s sci-fi meets beauty” she mused Dr. Himand also noted that Ultherapy is cleared by the FDA for the face and neck and has a specific indication for brow lifting.
The sound waves from the Ulthrapy device are concentrated at a focal point where it contracts the tissue and initiates a collagen rebuilding process. The results can be immediate but the full effect takes up to 90 days while tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. You can think of Ultherapy as a process that “jump starts” your skin’s ability to produce fresh new collagen. Not everyone is a candidate. If the area under the chin has light to moderate sagging dramatic results can be seen. Usually one treatment lasting thirty minutes is all that is needed. Ultherapy has been available in Europe and Asia since 2008 and has been used on over 4,000 patients worldwide. Prices vary but usually start around $1,000.
