Ultherapy is one of the most incredible innovations in non-invasive facial plastic surgery that is come along during my career. When I first heard it I thought if this truly works it’s the Judy Jetson facelift of the future a therapy uses micro focused ultra sound energy to target the fiber muscular level of the face as well as the under surface of the skin.
We’re able to target at three specific levels during the treatment we’re able to look at the actual patients’ skin, muscle fat anatomy. On an ultrasound screen so that is one phase of the ultrasound technology. The second of the ultra sound technology and the head of the transducer that we actually use on the face, we mix multiple ultra sound beam and the ultra sound beams until they collide they don’t really do much but when they collide they create heat at about 70 degrees Celsius and that’s enough to create a burn at the specific level that we want to have that burn occur.
The burn does two things, one there’s immediate contraption of the fiber muscular layer in the skin which creates lifting and tightening and secondly over about a six month period those burns form and new collagen. And during that time there’s lifting and tightening of the face and neck. The third is the only technology that has been FDA proves to lift the brows, the face and the neck.
