The Wall Street Journal recently reported that a fabulous new technology is now available that can produce the same rejuvenating results as years of cosmetic fillers. It’s Ultherapy, a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to actually tighten muscle and the skin attached to it — on the brow, on the neck, around the eyes and under the chin — without any downtime. And, it’s offered here in San Diego at Torrey Pines Dermatology.
Ultherapy has been featured on national television shows such as Rachael Ray, The View and The Doctors. It’s been touted by big-name beauty editors from Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Shape and more. It is the Only Procedure FDA-Cleared for a Non-invasive Neck, Brow and Under-Chin Lift.
FACT: Ultherapy Uses Ultrasound
That’s right! Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is being delivered to where it will be most optimal.
Leveraging this tried-and-true technology, we can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – the one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. That means after a 60- to 90-minute non-invasive treatment, you’ll be able to return to your everyday life without interruptions…and, without hiding behind those “post-treatment” glasses or scarves.
FACT: Ultherapy Naturally Creates Collagen and Elastin
Ultherapy is unique because it refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin – yes, new collagen and elastin. This results in an actual lift of skin overtime. In fact, the ultimate lifting takes place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. And, as this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure!
FACT: Ultherapy – an Uplift not a Facelift
Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity – those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. It’s also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Ask us if Ultherapy is right for you! If you’re looking for a lift to counter the effects that gravity takes over time, it may be just the treatment you’ve been looking for.
