Ultherapy: The Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Solution



Ultrasound is a versatile tool in medicine. It can help diagnose cardiovascular disease, track the progress of child development and aid in the injury healing process for physical therapy. Recently, it has been proven to stimulate collagen production, allowing it to serve as a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. It has been labeled Ultherapy®, and this FDA-approved skin rejuvenation treatment is showing up in many dermatology offices, including ADSCA, as a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.

What is it?
Ultherapy does not provide the same drastic results as a surgical procedure, but it also carries a much lower risk to the patient. It is a non-invasive procedure that requires no preparation prior to the treatment and little or no downtime to recover from it afterward.

This link provides a visual representation of the treatment’s effects underneath the skin.

How does it work?
Essentially, the ultrasonic waves delivered by the device stimulate your body to naturally produce collagen, the proteins that form the web of fibrous tissue that give the skin a firm appearance. The collagen production takes place over time, showing increasing improvement throughout the following year. You are likely to see the greatest results after three months.

Who is it for?
People who have seen a mild or moderate decrease in their skin laxity (firmness) are candidates for this procedure. The procedure is recommended for use on the brow, face and neck.

What are the risks?
The most common side effects of the treatment are facial redness and tenderness in the treated areas. There is a small potential for post-procedural side effects. I always recommend consulting your health care provider before participating in any health procedure, even one as simple as Ultherapy.

  2. Wrinkle treatment cost depends mainly on amount of saggy and inelastic skin to be treated and number of places to be treated. Experience of surgeon and the location of his clinic is another factor that influences variation of cost. For More information visit: http://www.skintreatmentsindia.com
