Ultherapy® Skin Lifting Ultherapy or “Ulthera” is a non-surgical, non-invasive ultrasound treatment used to help lift and tighten skin around one’s neck, brow, and chin. Ultherapy relies on the implementation of concentrated ultrasound to tighten/lift loose skin. This clinic offers a resolute solution to provide patients with a non-invasive face lift. This procedure has been validated by Health Canada following the conclusion of several studies. It’s a well-thought-of solution with thousands of successful cases around the world. Gentle Procedure With the assistance of “Ultherapy Amplify” (software update), this is a comfortable procedure for patients. The clinic upholds the highest standards while administering ultrasound energy and acknowledge a patient’s pain threshold will vary. Any form of discomfort, while minimal, is seen during the use of ultrasound energy to encourage collagen development. Topical numbing agents are used to ensure a soothing experience for all patients. Rapid Results This non-surgical procedure implements ultrasound energy to promote deep collagen building. Initial results are realized followed by continuous positive developments for 3-6 months. How long does it take to complete the procedure? Ultherapy requires an hour-long session to complete. The magic of this procedure is seen through its use of ultrasound imaging, which provides a crystal-clear assessment of one’s tissues. Therefore, the focused energy is sent to the appropriate target areas for optimal results. Please note, patients seeking this treatment require no more than one session. However, it’s recommended to contemplate the use of further procedures later in life as the skin ages from biological responses. This can sustain or reinvigorate one’s collagen building. Who Qualifies for Ultherapy? The ideal candidate is a person with loose skin near the neck, chin, or brow area. Most patients will display signs of laxity or slackness near the eyebrows once their skin begins to mature. This can be followed by loose skin near the neck and chin. Ultherapy is designated as a top-tier treatment for patients wishing to avoid surgical procedures. In general, a candidate will be in their 30s or older and display varying signs of skin laxity. It can also be cited as a preventative procedure to elongate the youthfulness of one’s skin or as a means to extend the effects of one’s cosmetic surgery. A specialist will determine the patient’s individual needs before introducing a personalized plan of action. Post-Treatment Following an Ultherapy session, most patients will be ready to go with refreshed skin. A small percentage of patients may notice temporary redness, tingling, tenderness, or swelling. It’s important to note these are mild and go away quickly. All patients receive robust post-procedure guidelines. Cost of Ultherapy Patients receive a detailed consultation with an assessment of their skin and a competitive quote. These can vary depending on the degree of laxity and a patient’s particular case. The clinic provides fair and flexible quotes in line with industry standards for all of its patients. Ultherapy vs. Thermage Ultherapy relies on the use of ultrasonic waves with pinpoint accuracy to optimize collagen building. These waves are sent deep into the tissue for maximum development and engagement. Thermage uses radio-frequency waves to invigorate external growth but doesn’t reach the deep-lying tissues for prolonged results. Thermage is also an uncertified treatment, unlike the approved Ultherapy procedure. Ultherapy is safe and can be managed by a trained specialist with years of experience. The same cannot be said for Thermage since the radio-frequency waves are harder to control due to variation in temperature and heat-production. Therefore, it’s recommended to trust a world-class treatment such as Ultherapy for all skin tightening requirements.
