Ultherapy® – The Non Surgical Facelift
Tula Wellness now offers Ultherapy®, a safe, noninvasive, and nonsurgical treatment that uses the body’s own regenerative process to lift the skin. Areas in which Ulthera treatments are applied include the skin under the chin and on the neck and on the eyebrow. Fine lines and wrinkles on the decolletage can also be smoothed using this skin tightening treatment.
What Makes Ultherapy Unique
This skin tightening treatment is the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging, in which the doctor can view the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment in order to achieve optimal results. Ulthera is currently the only noninvasive treatment approved by the FDA to actually lift skin. Ulthera is also the only FDA approved treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the chest as well.
What Makes Ultherapy Different From Other Laser Treatments?
By using sound energy, Ultherapy can treat deeper into the surface of the skin than other non-invasive cosmetic devices. The sound energy also helps boost the skin’s collagen production deep within its foundation, which can lift the tissue significantly over two to three months.
The light energy used in lasers is unable to treat the deeper layer s of the skin at optimal temperatures. Therefore, lasers are used for more superficial skin treatments.
How Ultherapy Boosts Collagen Production
Ultherapy deposits sound energy deep within the skin to boost the neocollagenesis process, which produces new collagen. Essentially, it jumpstarts your body’s own collagen-building process.
How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen?
Ultherapy deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
Who Is A Good Ulthera Candidate?
This could be a great option if you are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity in which the skin looks and feels less firm. If you are experiencing loose skin around the neck, sagging underneath your chin, and some wrinkling on the chest, then you would make a great candidate. If you are interested in Ulthera, then we recommend booking a consultation with our medical professionals.
What To Expect
The good news is that Ultherapy requires no downtime, so you can resume your daily activities immediately following your Ultherapy treatment.
During the treatment, you will feel small amounts of energy being deposited deep within your skin, which indicates that the collagen-building process is working. The sensation lasts only as long as the ultrasound energy is being applied, and the comfort level varies with each patient.
How Many Treatments For Results?
The majority of Ultherapy patients see results in just one treatment. Depending upon the level of skin laxity, optimal results could appear two to three months following treatment. The amount of time in which the results last vary with each patient and ultimately depend upon your own body’s natural aging process. Because the aging process cannot be stopped, future touch ups will help patients keep up with their results.
What Are The Side Effects?
Immediately following your treatment, your skin might appear flushed, but the redness usually goes away within a few hours. Some patients can temporarily experience mild tenderness, swelling, or tingling to the touch. Less common side effects include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of the skin.
Can Ultherapy Replace A Face Lift?
Although this skin-tightening treatment will work deep within the layers of the skin, it won’t have the same results as a facelift. However, Ultherapy makes a great alternative to cosmetic surgery and can be used to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
