Did you know Ultherapy® can help with skin texture issues as well as provide lifting and tightening of the tissues? There are multiple treatment heads, or transducers, that your provider can choose from to customize your treatment. During an Ultherapy® treatment multiple transducers are used to target different depths of the dermis. The most superficial depth, a 1.5 mm transducer, can be very effective at targeting crêpe skin and superficial lines. Patients frequently report an improvement in their skins general appearance after an Ultherapy® treatment. They report an improvement in texture and pore size in addition to lifting and tightening.
Ultherapy ® works by creating a controlled injury in the tissues which stimulates the bodies wound healing mechanisms. This injury is created with microfocused ultrasound. Once the body recognizes an injury one of the ways it “heals” is by creating new bands of collagen. The results are gradual as the neocollagenesis (new collagen) can take up to 6 months. This treatment is ideal for the patient who is not ready for a surgical option but wants to see improvement with minimal downtime. This is a treatment a patient can receive and be back to normal daily activities the same day.
If there are small treatment areas where the problem is related to skin texture “mini” treatments can be performed with just the 1.5 mm transducer. Most practices can customize a plan based on your personal issues and treatment goals.
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared nonsurgical skin tightening device using ultrasound, allowing the provider to see precisely where in the tissues the thermal injury will be delivered.
