Ultherapy is the ONLY non-surgical device that is FDA approved for lifting of the face, brow and neck. Ultherapy is more effective than laser or radio frequency due to the depth that the device can achieve with the targeted Ultrasound waves. A common target in a surgical face lift is the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeuroticsystem) which, prior to Ultherapy, could be reached only through surgical procedures and the use of a bovie device in order to cause the thermal damage. This intentional thermal damage sets off a series of steps to ultimately tighten the skin and cause a lifting of the face.
Improvement from the Ultherapy treatment occurs in phases:
- THE INFLAMMATORY PHASE: which occurs after the injury to SMAS
- THE PROLIFERATIVE PHASE: which lays down new collagen
- LASTLY THE REMODELING PHASE: in which the new collagen fibers reorganize resulting in lifting of the skin.
Ultherapy is the ONLY non-invasive device that can reach this deep layer of SMAS and ultimately lift the skin effectively. The laser and RF machines of today cannot reach to these depths within the skin.
Although surgical face lift results are not duplicated with Ultherapy, the ability of this treatment to lift skin and produce incredible results with no down time and no risk of surgery makes Ultherapy a great alternative to a surgical face lift.
