With Ultherapy, a non-surgical face lifting method, it is possible to prevent the damage caused by time and gravity on our skin. It is a modern face lift application that does not require the patient to stay away from his social life and targets deep tissue layers using micro-focused ultrasound.
How does Ulthera work?
Ulthera®, with its precisely tuned localized heating feature, sends micro-focused ultrasound energy under the skin to warm the tissue from the outside, without damaging the skin's surface, like a magnifying glass that focuses solar energy. With the increase in heat created in the lower layers of the skin, new collagen production is triggered by starting the skin's self-repair process. Thus, the skin tightening and 'lifting' effect is provided.
How is Ultherapy applied?
The specialist who will perform the application first touches the application head to the skin, displays the skin and subcutaneous tissue and plans the work area. Then, with the same application head, thermal damage foci focused 4.5mm and 3mm below the skin are ensured that the skin benefits from this positively. During this process, the skin surface is not destroyed. During the Ulthera Ultherapy procedure, the subcutaneous tissues are seen on the screen so that they can only be seen during the surgery. Thanks to the energy reaching the skin, stimulation increases, subcutaneous tissues begin to renew themselves and new collagen formation is provided in the skin. A strong tightening effect occurs, resulting in a non-surgical, non-surgical face lift effect over time.
What is felt during the application?
People describe the feeling of pain they feel during the application as instant 'pins and needles'. This means that the ultrasound energy reaches deep into the tissue. Pain may be felt, especially in bony areas, but this pain is not unbearable. With a pain reliever and local anesthetic creams to be taken before the procedure, the slight pain sensation that may be felt during the procedure can be reduced.
What happens on the skin after the application?
Immediately after the application, the person can return to his daily activities. There is no condition that needs attention. Although some people may experience redness after the application, this situation returns to normal after a few hours.
What is the difference between the application and other non-surgical face lift procedures?
Ulthera is the 'single' skin rejunevation method in which focus ultrasound technology is used. Thanks to its reliable technology, it is possible to achieve effective and satisfactory results with a single application on the skin.
When will the Ultherapy effect be noticed?
After the 30-minute Ultherapy application for the entire face, the skin starts to recover and reaches the desired ideal appearance at the end of 3 months. A perfect tightening effect occurs, resulting in a natural 'face lift' effect over time. The result obtained after a single application is maintained for at least one year.
In which areas is Ultherapy applied?
• Looseness and sagging in the chin area
• Jawline loss
• Cheek sagging
• Downturning of the corners of the mouth
• Sagging skin around the neck and eyes
• Low eyebrows
What are the advantages?
• It is the only non-surgical application that stretches the skin on the neck and face.
• The only application of 30-60 minutes that does not disrupt the social life of the patient.
• Treatment that is independent of skin color and does not require pre- or post-treatment care.
• Treatment that can be adjusted according to the patient's needs
• Significant and effective in 90-180 days, which gets better in 1 year or
• more ongoing results
• Treats much deeper levels than laser and radiofrequency
Is Ultherapy a reliable method?
Ultrasound energy has been used in medicine for more than 50 years and has proven in clinical trials without any side effects. Ulthera America is a FDA approved device. It has been proven to have no side effects in clinical studies.
Who are suitable candidates for Ulthera application?
All people with loosening or sagging skin are suitable candidates for Ulthera. Especially between the ages of 40-65, significant results are obtained because the skin structure is loosened. Again, young age and early age for facelift surgery are good indications for Ulthera. Sometimes patients may not want to have surgery and may be afraid of complications and anesthesia. This is a good indication for ulthera.
What result should be expected?
With a single application, the regeneration process starts immediately, but the full results are seen after 60-90 days. The FDA (American quality standards center) detected a visible lift-up effect in the eyebrow hanging study conducted in 9 out of 10 patients. This effect has created the effect of reducing the relaxation around the eyes and the wrinkles in the eyelids.
People who were applied to the neck and face area stated that they had tighter, more taut and better quality skin. Until today, there was no non-surgical method equivalent to the dramatic results obtained in surgical interventions, but today there is Ulthera technology that can provide excellent stretching and lifting.
How long does the effect of the application last?
