Ultherapy The Good And The Bad

How Ultrasound Skin Tightening Can Firm, Lift Your Face?

Many people don’t realize that ultrasound imaging can be used to lift skin and promote collagen production. One such noninvasive treatment, Ultherapy®, has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Practitioners use the ultrasound treatment to target deep tissue layers. They can use the device to focus energy where it is most needed.
Ultrasound therapy — long used for imaging and other treatments — is now helping to give people’s faces a lift.
Ultherapy uses noninvasive ultrasound energy to lift the eyebrow, neck and under-chin. Recently, the FDA approved the technique for smoothing décolletage (chest area) lines and wrinkles as well. 
The price of the treatment varies between &1400 to $4000

Ultrasound Therapy for Sagging Skin

Ultrasound therapy – commercially known as Ultherapy – improves the appearance of moderately loose or sagging skin by depositing focused ultrasound energy below the surface to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen, the natural protein that gives skin its youthful firmness and elasticity. Skin begins to lift and tone over time.

Why choose ultrasound therapy for sagging skin

Ultrasound therapy is typically used on the brow, neck and under the chin. The treatment is non-surgical and can be performed in a doctor’s office.

What you should know about ultrasound therapy for sagging skin

The practitioner who performs the procedure will first cleanse your skin thoroughly. Next, an ultrasound gel is applied and the smooth handpiece is placed on your skin. The focused ultrasound energy is delivered to pre-planned depths within the tissue below the surface of your skin to stimulate collagen growth. Ultrasound therapy literally bypasses the surface of the skin, targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen resides. The procedure uses the body’s own regenerative response to recondition the network of collagen fibers.

I have done research on this treatment and found horror stories and people loving it, so do you own research before getting this treatment. 

Ultherapy Ruined My Face

"Ultherapy is a non-surgical lifting procedure for the face and neck that uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen your skin from deep within. In less than an hour – and without any downtime – you’ll be well on your way to tighter, better-fitting skin."
