Ulthera, also known as Ultherapy, is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment widely recommended and preferred by doctors in the field of skin rejuvenation. Unlike other procedures, its popularity stems from its ability to provide personalized treatment tailored to an individual’s needs and skin structure.
Ulthera utilizes micro-focused ultrasound technology, approved by the FDA, to achieve tighter and younger-looking skin. By using high-frequency sound waves, the imaging method allows visualization of the underlying layers of the skin. This enables a thorough analysis of the skin, leading to a personalized treatment that is customized according to the individual’s specific needs.
Ulthera can provide various results, such as enhancing facial contours affected by aging or loss of shape, tightening sagging areas, improving skin firmness, lifting drooping brows, and achieving a more youthful appearance in the décolleté area.
There are several advantages to Ulthera:
- It can be applied to all skin types and colors without requiring pre- or post-treatment care.
- The treatment can be adjusted according to the patient’s needs.
- It can be performed in any season, including summer.
- It is a single-session treatment.
- There is no downtime required for recovery.
- It can target deeper levels of the skin compared to other procedures.
How is Ulthera Applied and How Does It Work?
Ulthera utilizes focused sound waves to reach the deep sublayers of the skin (3 mm and 4.5-5 mm), which cannot be reached by other non-surgical methods, monopolar or bipolar radiofrequency, or lasers. This triggers collagen production in the treated areas, leading to skin tightening, renewal, and rejuvenation.
During the procedure, a focused ultrasound device is used in combination with imaging ultrasound to focus on the tissues and connective layers beneath the skin’s surface without causing any damage. By visualizing the underlying layers, the device emits shots and focused ultrasound energy, inducing thermal damage that stimulates the subdermal layer’s contraction, regeneration, and tightening.
By triggering the underlying tissues, Ulthera tightens and lifts the skin without the need for surgical intervention, counteracting the effects of gravity and aging on the skin and underlying tissues. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition, and the results are achieved through the strengthening of the skin and collagen production.
With advancements in technology, Ulthera can also be used for wrinkle treatment with the use of 1.5 mm transducers. Unlike laser treatments, Ulthera for wrinkle treatment does not cause redness or peeling of the skin. Additionally, there are no visible incisions or scars associated with Ulthera treatments.
Who Can Benefit from Ulthera?
Ulthera treatment is suitable for individuals who experience a loss of elasticity in their skin, resulting in decreased facial contours. It can help address issues such as drooping brows, making the person appear tired and older than their actual age. Ulthera can provide a more dynamic and youthful appearance by resolving problems related to sagging skin and creases around the eye area. It can also be beneficial for treating neck laxity and improving signs of aging in the décolleté area.
The majority of patients who undergo Ulthera treatment experience a lifting effect, particularly in the brow and upward facial areas. It is a highly effective and preferred procedure for the eye area and eyelids.
For individuals with non-surgical issues, Ulthera can alleviate or delay the need for surgical intervention. It can also provide visible benefits for patients who prefer non-surgical treatments. The application and planning of Ulthera differ for each gender, taking into account individual considerations for both men and women.
Which Areas Can Ulthera Treat?
Ulthera treatment is effective for the following areas:
- Loose and sagging skin in the chin area
- Loss of jawline definition
- Sagging cheeks
- Wrinkles and sagging around the lips and mouth
- Sagging skin around the neck and eyes
- Drooping brows
What Sensations Can Be Expected During the Procedure?
The sensations experienced during Ulthera treatment can vary from person to person, but patients generally describe it as a momentary “pinprick” sensation. This sensation indicates that the ultrasound energy has reached the deeper layers of the skin. Patients can typically tolerate this temporary discomfort, but individuals with a low pain threshold may consider taking pain relievers before the procedure.
How Long Does Ulthera Treatment Take and How Many Sessions are Required?
The duration of Ulthera treatment can vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and the treated area. On average, the procedure can be completed in 30-60 minutes. If the entire face is treated, the session may extend up to 60 minutes.
Ulthera is a single-session and effective treatment, and to maintain its positive effects, experts recommend repeating the treatment every 1.5-2 years.
When Can Results Be Seen After Ulthera Treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, patients may notice increased skin firmness and tightness. However, this is an instant and temporary effect. Since the treatment initiates a process of collagen production in the skin, the full effects become visible several weeks after the procedure. It takes approximately three months to observe the complete outcome.
How Long Do the Effects of Ulthera Last?
Through the technology utilized in Ulthera, hotspots are created in the deeper layers of the skin, triggering collagen production and initiating the skin’s self-repair process. As a result, the skin starts to tighten. The positive effects of Ulthera, which is a single-session treatment, can last for approximately 1.5-2 years. However, aging is an ongoing process, and to maintain the benefits of the treatment, it can be repeated every two years.
Ulthera prices can vary depending on various factors. The size of the treated area is one of the primary factors affecting the price. Additionally, the experience of the doctor, the equipment of the clinic where the treatment is performed, and the satisfaction of previous patients who have undergone the procedure also contribute to the price. Providing price information on websites related to aesthetics and healthcare is considered illegal according to the Ministry of Health. To obtain accurate price information, it is necessary to visit a clinic where the aesthetic procedure will be performed and have a consultation with a doctor. Based on the examination results, the appropriate procedures will be determined, and the most accurate price information will be provided.
