BEFORE AND AFTER
Christie Brinkley: The New Face of Ultherapy®
LIFT, TONE, AND TIGHTEN LOOSE SKIN
Ultherapy 2.0 – a Ultherapy treatment with double the results! Ultherapy enables practitioners to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. Never before has this tissue been accessible without surgery. With the use of Ultrasound therapy in Ulthera, the practitioner can see deep into the layers of the skin, enabling them to target depleted collagen while avoiding nerves, bone, etc. Previous similar non-surgical treatments such as Thermage are done blindly and therefore, must remain at a surface level.
Ulthera gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. In addition to the visible effects of lifting and tightening, Ultherapy also creates new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. The Ulthera Treatment lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin around the brow, cheeks and neck to counteract the effects of time and gravity.
As with other ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows your practitioner to plan where the energy will be sent. This same applicator is then used to deliver low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, all the while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed. Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.
Ultherapy is the only nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedure that can specifically target and strengthen the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address in surgery. The ability to treat not just the skin but its underlying support, from the inside out, helps to ensure both safe and satisfying results, with no downtime.
There may be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, and practitioners will discuss options for making the experience as pleasant as possible. Patients leave comfortable and happy given the benefits to come.
You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear within an hour. Occasionally patients may experience slight swelling, brusing, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for over 50 years and clinical trials have demonstrated the safety of this latest application. As with any medical procedure, there are general safety considerations, which your physician will review with you.
