As we age, it affects not only the skin, but also the deep muscular layers in the face and platysma muscles of the neck to drop lower. This is because the collagen in our bodies is constantly depleting, resulting in unsightly tired, sagging appearance of the eyelids, cheeks, jowls and neck areas.
Ulthera Facelift is currently the only technology from the USA that is FDA-approved and uses Focused Ultrasound energy for non-surgical lifting of the brow, face and the jawline area. This energy bypasses skin surface to reach into deep muscular layers (as deep as 4.5mm) and initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen. This stimulation lasts over a period of 2 to 3 months, and most people see visible lifting and tightening results lasting up to a year. All these are done non-surgically, with no downtime. Below is a visual illustration to show how deep does Ulthera go beneath the skin surface.
