Because Ultherapy can be applied with much precision, doctors are able to tighten soft tissue and skin with pin-point accuracy. Ultrasound energy is directed 1.5mm, 3.0mm, and 4.5mm underneath the skin without disrupting the surface. Hence it can target and treat the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), a layer of fibrous tissue beneath the surface that helps give the face its shape. The body’s regenerative response is then triggered, rejuvenating collagen and resulting in a tighter firmer appearance.
The Ulthera device is versatile and is effective for lifting, contouring, and shaping the face, lifting droopy eyelids, smoothening wrinkles, reducing the appearance of eyebags, and tightening sagging skin on the cheeks, neck, and eye areas. It is also effective for enhancing and sharpening certain facial features and the overall shape of the face.
Ultherapy can be used on men and women in their 20s to maintain firmness in the face and provide spot treatment in areas that show early signs of age, like our eyebags, cheeks, jowl area, and brows. Ultherapy is also good for slimming down chubby or “chipmunk cheeks”.
For more mature patients, Ultherapy is effective for lifting and contouring sagging areas due to ageing. Other than the full face, it is also suitable for the spot treatment of delicate areas such as our eyebags, cheeks, jowl area, brows, and neck.
