Ultherapy (Ulthera) is a technology based on ultrasound or sound waves. Because it uses ultrasound and not light, it can be performed on any skin type including ethnic skin and tanned skin. The other benefit of Ultherapy is that it can be performed any time of the year. Another advantage of Ultherapy is that is works at the deeper layer of skin near the muscular layer to truly give you a lift. It works from bottom up while older forms of skin tightening such as Titan, Thermage, Accent utilize either broadband light or radiofrequency to result in skin tightening. These devices work from top down. While clients may notice some tightening with the older devices, many are disappointed as it does not provide adequate tightening. Ultherapy has a high client satisfaction rating, as much as 80%.
Ultherapy works by utilizing sounds waves to cause thermocoagulation of the tissue. This means that hundreds of points causing contraction of the tissue lead to skin tightening. In addition, collagen is stimulated and improvements continue to occur as much as 6 months after the procedure. Most clients require only one treatment and results can last several years. Some clients may require a second treatment for optimal results.
Ultherapy is employed on the face and upper neck and can be utilized to tighten and lift skin in the brow region, lower face, and upper neck. Treatment itself can take up to 1 hour and 30 minutes. There is minimal redness and swelling which typically dissipates within one to 2 days. The procedure can be uncomfortably and even painful depending on the individual tolerances. Therefore you may receive oral medications for sedation and pain control such as percocet and valium. In addition, your provider may perform nerve blocks to mitigate further discomfort. Following the procedure you can experience some soreness which can last several weeks. For more information on Ultherapy in New Jersey, click on http://www.myethosspa.com/
