ULTHERAPY is very new to australia and hitting America and Europe by storm. Its is the new skin aesthetic science treatment now available at Akaliko Skin Clinics.
Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without surgery, helping you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! The safety and efficacy of Ultherapy have been established through clinical studies and over 800,000 treatments performed worldwide1. Ultherapy is approved in over 90 countries to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
The Ultherapy device uses ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin. Ultherapy treatment also stimulates the creation of new collagen, which further helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen. The results continue to work for 12 months.
A good candidate for Ultherapy procedure is someone with skin that has wrinkles or someone who has “relaxed” to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
There is no downtime, you can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin but this will disperse in time depending on your skins healing process.
