Ultherapy or Ulthera (อั ล เท อ ร่า which is the term in Thai) is the only laser- and RF-free, non-invasive technique for elevating skin that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (radiofrequency therapy). RF lasers can treat fine lines and wrinkles, caused by a loss of collagen in the skin’s outermost layers. However, therapy employs ultrasonic waves to access the collagen-rich tendons and ligaments deep inside the body. When the underlying tissues are weak, the skin sags and shows signs of strain. Such type of deep collagen enhancement allows us to tighten and elevate the skin overall.
It’s important to remember that it takes time for skin to repair itself, just like it takes time to create muscle. The outcomes won’t be seen for 3–6 months. This makes it a good choice for people who cannot afford to miss a lot of work because of perhaps minor swelling or bruising. The subsequent natural and progressive effects require minimal waiting time.
Med spa Ultherapy sessions last varying amounts of time, based on the treated areas. It takes about thirty minutes to cure a single region. Time estimates of up to 90 minutes are needed to treat several locations like the face and neck. Overall, it creates a look that looks more natural as time passes. Ultherapy’s anti-ageing effects can be seen most clearly in the forehead, neck, and the chest areas.
A Preview Of Your Ultherapy Experience
Ulthera’s non-invasive nature means it won’t leave you with any scarring, bruising, or swelling after treatment. Arrive at the office the day before your treatment for a pre-procedure consultation to understand any last-minute details and ensure you understand what to expect.
Once the treatment has begun, an ultrasound viewer is used to determine the optimal settings for the Ultherapy device, which is positioned against the target area. Afterwards, the affected areas receive a dose of ultrasound energy. Even though you may feel some level of heat and buzzing during your Ultherapy treatment, the procedure is painless.
Ultherapy’s key advantages include the fact that:
- It’s a non-invasive treatment that is administered in a medspa.
- Skin becomes firmer because the treatment helps the body to produce new collagen.
- Improvements are visible immediately, and they’ll continue to become better over time as collagen production rises.
- Ultherapy reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
