Skin Lift Ultherapy is a procedure that targets lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and sun damage on the neck, under the chin and on the chest/decolletage by tightening and lifting the skin in these areas. This procedure is nonsurgical with minimal downtime and the results speak for themselves after just one treatment. As an exciting alternative to cosmetic surgery with such little downtime and improved comfort. SkinLift Ultherapy is fast becoming the treatment of choice for targeting ageing skin. If you are looking to target these above areas and maintain levels of collagen and elastin in the skin, delay the aging process and rejuvenate your overall appearance then this could be the ideal procedure for you.
The procedure involves using the SkinLift Ultherapy System which delivers high intensity focused ultrasound energy achieving a high level of precision that has not been achieved thus far by other energy based systems using radio frequency and lasers. The ultrasound energy firstly uses imaging technology to see beyond the skin to see the key areas that need to be treated and then secondly it is able to deliver this energy to its target area allowing precise placement of thermal coagulation heat points. These heat points lead to specific denatura-tion of collagen within the dermal muscle layers which leads to progressive repair and tightening of tissue to create a lift of the face and neck. The sound waves deliver small, contro-lled amounts of energy into the deep layers of skin and soft tissue while sparing the upper layers.
SkinLift Ultherapy is the only treatment to allow this level of visualisation. This energy initiates the natural process of the body stimulating the growth of fresh new collagen, which replaces old and ageing collagen. These treatments are a much quicker, easier alternative to often costly and time-consuming surgical means of skin tightening. It is suitable for all skin types, with mild to moderate wrinkles and skin laxity.
Skin Lift Ultherapy can also be used to help prolong the effects in patients who have already undertaken surgical options, or as a complement to non surgical procedures or as a combination treatment.
The length of the treatment with depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan and after the procedure you can resume to your normal activities immediately. While having the treatment you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths. Comfort levels vary from person to person, the sensation you feel from the treatment only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.
The lack of downtime and no residual marks on the skin are the main reason patients prefer Ultherapy and the effectiveness of this treatment has seen it become one of the most popular treatments for skin lifting.
