Do you have sagging skin, but aren’t ready for a surgical facelift? Consider getting Ultherapy and HIFU. This is an FDA-approved and clinically approved treatment for tightening the face, neck, decolettage and underarms.
What is HIFU and Ultherapy?
HIFU means “high intensity focused ultrasound.”
Ultrasound waves are focused and targeted on a particular area. The waves are able to penetrate into the deeper layers of skin tissue. The heat contracts the skin cells, for an instant face lift. It also reaches the layers where collagen and elastin are produced and deposited. That’s why Ultherapy will continue to improve the skin weeks after the treatment.
Ultherapy is a type of HIFU treatment. It is approved by the US FDA for aesthetic treatments.
What are the benefits of HIFU and Ultherapy?
- Clinically proven safe and effective. This technology is backed by several independent scientific papers. It has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lines, wrinkles and sagging.
- Non-surgical. It does not require any incisions or surgery. This means a lower risk of infection, and no need for hospitalization or sedation.
- Natural looking results. The treatment firms the skin and enhances your facial shape. You look younger, but you still look like yourself!
Is Ultherapy and HIFU painful?
There is very little pain or discomfort. You will be given a numbing cream before it starts, and you can manage any other pain with over the counter pain killers.
What are the side effects and downtime?
There may be some redness, but this generally goes away after a few hours. You will be able to return to your daily activities right after, and don’t have to take any special precautions or measures. Your doctor may recommend some creams or skincare steps.
What will the results be like?
There is a noticeable lifting effect with firmer, tighter skin and even skin tone. However, the full benefits of the session happen over the course of several weeks, as collagen and elastin is produced. In some cases you may need several sessions, but each one will bring you closer to your beauty goal.
