Ulthera is the first-ever non-invasive ultrasound device approved for aesthetics and received FDA approval in September 2009. It combines ultrasound imaging with focused ultrasound therapy at defined depths that provide reliable tightening and lifting of skin laxity. When a surgical correction is unnecessary or unwanted, Ulthera can provide an excellent solution. Ulthera can be useful to optimize skin tightening after a facelift or assist in extending the result of a surgical procedure.
As with exercising to build muscle, the building of new collagen to tone, tighten and lift the skin occurs gradually over a 90--day period, even though some may see immediate improvement following their treatment. It is anticipated that annual or interval maintenance will be desired in order to maintain optimal outcomes. Results can last for years depending on your natural aging process and your diligence to healthy skin care habits. The use of sunscreen and topical antioxidants is recommended to prevent destruction of new collagen by UV rays. Because Ulthera affects the deep layers of tissue, it is compatible with other cosmetic procedures addressing more superficial concerns of the skin.
As always, the providers of NWFace have tested the treatment on themselves instead of learning on unsuspecting patients... Dr. Voss, Gary, Shane, Stella and Carolyn can all talk to you about their experience - please feel free to approach them. We recommend that you get a consultation.
