Take a look at the Ultherapy procedure and its many benefits.
What is Ultherapy?
The Ultherapy procedure is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive procedure for lifting and tightening the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production within the skin to create a firm appearance.
Unlike laser therapies, Ultherapy bypasses the skin’s surface to target structural tissues where collagen is found. The process basically works on an inside-out theory to lift and tighten the skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
• This non-surgical treatment offers significant results
• No down time
• While patients may see some instant results, the ultimate lifting and toning will occur over the next two to three months, and additional improvements can even appear up to six months following the procedure.
The Ultherapy Procedure
Often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure,” the Ultherapy procedure is quick and comfortable. The target areas are cleansed and then an ultrasound gel is applied. The Ultherapy hand piece then focuses ultrasound energy to the tissue below to stimulate collagen growth.
While comfort levels may vary, at Rejuvalife we will work with you to make the experience as pleasant as possible. Any sensation you may experience is the focused energy that is being deposited below the surface of the skin. Most patients, however, leave comfortable and look forward to the coming benefits. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Your skin may appear flushed immediately after the procedure; however, it will disappear within just a few hours. There could also be minor swelling and tingling or tenderness, but are usually mild and temporary.
