Ulthera Skin Rejuvenation System: Overview and Review

ulthera review

The Ulthera™ System, or Ultherapy, is a non-surgical skin treatment designed to lift, rejuvenate, and tone your skin back to its youth. As an alternative to the traditional facelift, it's quickly become one of the most popular ways to improve the appearance of your skin without having to go under the knife. The Ulthera treatment is the first facial treatment to incorporate innovative ultrasound technology, which penetrates deep into the lower layers of the skin to promote skin that's smooth, glowing, and wrinkle-free.

You can trust that the Ulthera System is safe and effective. In 2006, Ulthera Inc. received FDA approval for their Ulthera treatment as a non-surgical brow lift. It's also a low-risk option for skin tightening, non-surgical facelifts, and overall skin rejuvenation. Ulthera offers the benefits of a facelift without the risks, pain, healing time, or costs associated with surgical facelifts. Plus, you may see the results of Ulthera after just one session.

Ulthera Ultrasound Technology

Doctors have utilized ultrasound technology in skincare for over fifty years. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to bring oxygen, nutrients, and circulation to the skin. At the same time, it also carries allergens and inflammatory agents away from the skin. Ultrasound technology has been slowly making its way into body treatments like VASER Liposelection®, but its usage in facial skin treatments is unprecedented, making the Ulthera System the first treatment of its kind.

Ulthera incorporates ultrasound in a special patented way called DeepSEE™ Technology, which uses a combination of ultrasound imaging and ultrasonic thermal energy. Ultrasound imaging allows the specialist to literally “see” where the ultrasound is going on a digital screen. The thermal energy of ultrasound is also applied at certain trigger points to promote optimal healing and collagen formation.

Ulthera Procedure

Since Ulthera is a non-invasive procedure, you can expect a relaxing experience. During Ulthera, your skincare specialist will run a special applicator over your face. The applicator is unique to the Ulthera System and emits ultrasound waves. As the applicator moves, an image is transmitted to a screen. The screen shows where the waves are going, so that the specialist can concentrate on certain areas.

Immediately after your anti-aging Ulthera session, you may notice that your skin is slightly flushed. This is normal and should disappear before you leave the clinic. The redness may be your skin's natural reaction to the low heat that the Ulthera System transmits or simply the friction of the applicator against your skin. You may start to notice improvements in your skin the same day, and continue to see them as time goes on. That's because even though the Ulthera treatment has ended, the tissue under your skin keeps changing. Although improvements may be seen in one Ulthera session, multiple sessions are recommended for the best results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Ulthera?

A good candidate for Ulthera is someone who has noticed that their skin is aging. Specifically, patients with sagging around the eye area may find Ulthera to be the best way to tighten the their eyelids, undereye bags, brow area, and orbital circle. Ulthera will contour these areas and help patients regain a youthful appearance. Ulthera is also effective at tightening the skin around the mouth, jaw, and chin. Many patients have found that their “turkey neck” has been dramatically improved by Ulthera.

Is Ulthera Safe?

Ulthera Inc. asserts that Ulthera is safe for virtually anyone to use. Remember, Ulthera is an FDA-approved treatment. It uses no blades, needles, or other surgical tools. The benefits of ultrasound are transferred from the applicator to your skin, and then deep into the underlying tissue. If you have concerns about the safety of Ulthera for you, you should address them in a free consultation prior to the treatment.
