To target the deeper layers of the skin tissue, a new type of nonsurgical procedure, Ultherapy uses high intensity ultrasound. Get reviews, cost and risks of Ultherapy here.
A nonsurgical way, Ultherapy uses medical ultrasound for cosmetic enhancement of the skin. Ultherapy does not use a laser but uses ultrasound, a sound vibration that we humans cannot listen to as it is higher than our sound range. In a very short 30-minute process, Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound energy on the face and neck to lift and tighten the skin. Here is mentioned important description regarding cost, risk and reviews of Ultherapy.
To treat skin laxity, Ultherapy is designed and is good for loss of jaw-line definition, crepy, saggy necks, cheeks, the forehead for brow droop, nasolabial folds, marionette lines on the chin and a downturned mouth. Since it was launched in 2009 in Europe, over 1,100 Ultherapies have been performed globally and also it was FDA approved in September 2009.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it uses the body’s own restrained healing response to gently, slowly and reliably—restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue in just a 30-minute procedure. It feels similar to "a series of tiny pinpricks" and there is no requirement for anaesthesia. Using focused ultrasound waves, it works by sending energy to a pre-determined depth in the tissue and creates "hot spots", deep under the skin. To begin its repair process, they induce the body, creating new collagen that produces the tightening and lifting effect.
The expected cost of treatment is nearly US$1,500 for a small area or $7,000 for a full facelift and each machine is valued about $105,000. Price may vary depending on whether you treat the full face, neck, or partial face. Its results last for up to 12 months to 18 months.
Ultherapy works well for all types of skin so particular skin type is not a factor. For over 50 years, Ultrasound energy has been used in medical imaging and therapeutics like sonograms, liposuction, bone or teeth regeneration, and clinical studies have confirmed the safety of this latest application. However, there are general safety considerations as with any medical procedure so you must consult the physician.
