How Ultherapy™ Builds Collagen and Lifts Skin
Young skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin, both of which are key to providing structure and creating a youthful appearance. By our early twenties, however, not only does collagen production go into decline, its fibre formation begins to unravel, much like a stretched and overused slinky. Eventually one will begin to see wrinkles, lines, folds, drooping or the early onset of jowls. Compounded by the fact that elastin production is also on decline (by the way, elastin gives our skin its ability to “snap” back) the appearance of aging is amplified.
Good News: Ultherapy™ has been proven to delay/prevent the onset of aging skin and is highly regarded as the gold standard for non-invasive skin lifting. The ONLY Health Canada and FDA-cleared procedure for lifting, Ultherapy™ treats the face, neck, chin and brow, offering improvements that help restore laxity.
Learn how this treatment can benefit your skin:
Skin-tightening technologies deliberately “injure” the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response.
With Ultherapy™, trained professionals use micro-focused ultrasound to create micro “injuries” inducing neocollagenesis (the creation of new collagen), along with strengthening of elastin. Just like traditional ultrasound that allows a mother to see a baby inside her womb, Ultherapy™ looks deep into the dermis, allowing the technician to see exactly where and how energy should be placed to ensure structural regeneration.
Ultherapy™ treatments allow for precision with three levels of depth:
- Superficial tightening – This occurs at 1.5 millimetres, with precise targeting to address problem areas.
- Deep dermal “injury” – Applied at 3.0 millimetres.
- SMAS muscle “injury” – The dermis is bypassed at 4.5 millimetres, using a controlled approach that is only rivalled by a facelift (surgery).
Results gradually become more visible in the weeks and months following the treatment.
Treatments that boost the skin’s natural functions help delay visible signs of aging and, ultimately, reduce the need for more invasive and expensive treatments. Ultherapy™ — when combined with a healthy lifestyle, carefully selected skin care, and customized treatment plans — delivers a safe and natural path towards natural-looking aging.
