Uplift Your Face from the Inside Out
One of the most obvious effects of the aging process is sagging skin due to gravity’s downward pull. As the skin around the eyebrows, neck and chin shifts, the entire contour of the face changes, causing the eyes to appear smaller and the cheeks to droop. The goal of Ultherapy is to uplift your face, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
For the first time ever, you can have all of the benefits of a facelift without all of the pain and discomfort of surgery. Ultherapy is a non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that tightens, tones and lifts the skin around the neck, chin and brow line.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound technology, or sound waves, which penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, to target the exact same tissue that is addressed during surgical procedures. The sound waves are directed in such a way as to gently heat the tissue in order to tighten loose skin without cutting through the skin’s surface.
Ultherapy rejuvenates skin from the inside out, whereas lasers work in reverse, from the outside in. One of the biggest advantages of Ultherapy is that it actually stimulates the production of collagen.
Collagen promotes elasticity and firmness, reconditioning and restoring the youthful vitality of your skin. The uplifting benefits of Ultherapy actually continue for two to three months after your Ultherapy treatment. Further improvements often appear after six months.
During the Procedure
First, your skin is thoroughly cleansed and the treatment areas are identified. Next, the ultrasound technician applies a smooth gel while moving a handheld piece over your skin. The sound waves pass right through the surface of your skin and are delivered deep within the tissue in order to boost collagen production.
The treatment process is relatively painless and there is no down time. Dr. Buka and his staff work hard to ensure a comfortable and effective treatment time for you.
