The FDA-approved skin tightening Toronto technique boosts collagen production, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Ultherapy, a non-invasive approach to firm areas including the chin, neck, brow, and décolleté, is one way to accomplish slimming, tightening, and lifting. It’s based on the same ultrasound imaging technique used in radiology (i.e. during pregnancy): The equipment works by sending sound waves through your skin and into the muscle of the spot you’re treating. Multiple attachments are employed on the machine to allow for superficial, medium, and deep penetration. It causes the muscle to tighten and shrink, giving the appearance of firming, wrinkle-smoothing, and contouring.
Ultherapy’s target locations
– It’s most frequently used on the face, neck, and chest. Other places to focus on are the brows, under the chin, and the décolletage (chest area)
– The technique requires very little preparation. Before and after the treatment, regular eating, drinking, exercise, and work routines can be maintained.
– There is no downtime throughout the treatment, which takes about 45 minutes to an hour.
It begins with the application of ultrasonic gel, followed by three passes at different depths: two millimetres, three millimetres, and three and a half millimetres. Your provider will use an ultrasound viewer to adjust the Ultherapy device to the proper settings once it is put against the skin. The ultrasonic energy is subsequently provided to the places that have been chosen. During treatment, you can feel hot and tingly for a short period of time. To alleviate any discomfort, pain medication might be given. The applicator is removed at the end of the treatment.
Depending on the treatment, a single procedure can last up to 90 minutes. Ultherapy treatment for the chest takes roughly 30 minutes, compared to 60 to 90 minutes for the face and neck.
Without cutting or altering the skin’s surface, the Ultherapy® method encourages collagen creation by delivering targeted ultrasound energy to the skin’s fundamental layer, which is generally addressed in cosmetic surgery.
This energy activates a natural response beneath the skin, kicking off the regenerative process that results in the production of new collagen. Ultherapy can yield visible improvements in as little as a few days, depending on your body’s ability to manufacture new collagen. Improvement can last up to three months in most cases. The effects will persist as long as your body produces new collagen and until the natural ageing process takes over once more.
