Ultherapy®

Treatment Description

Ultherapy is the only Health Canada licensed non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest without surgery or downtime. With Ultherapy, ultrasound energy is delivered precisely to the place where it will benefit you most—for natural-looking results that improve over time.

Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2–3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck and smoothing skin on the chest.

La Vitalité Med Spa is a leading provider of Ultherapy in Toronto, North York and Markham.

Introducing Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® is the next evolution in aesthetic science. It delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by surgeons during cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.

For those who are not ready for a surgical facelift, Ultherapy provides proven results in a single treatment for most patients. Treat your loose skin without surgery, without impacting the surface of your skin, and without downtime.

Ultrasound Skin Tightening

Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to go deeper than other non-invasive treatments for collagen stimulation. And it leverages traditional ultrasound imaging so Ultherapy providers can see the layers of tissue they are treating. This ensures the treatment energy is delivered to where it benefits you most.

How Ultherapy Skin Tightening Works

As a natural protein, collagen works to give skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. That’s where Ultherapy steps in and lifts up, through ultrasound therapy.

Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies, nonsurgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin through ultrasound energy with focused imaging—to target just the right amount at the right depths and the right temperature. The result is a jumpstart to your body’s own collagen production.

Before and After Results

FAQ

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.

Ultherapy is a proven treatment with a well-established safety profile. It is currently marketed worldwide in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments performed globally to date. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. The thermal effect essentially jump-starts your body’s own process that produces fresh, new collagen.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses time-tested ultrasound technology to stimulate the formation of new collagen deep below the skin’s surface. The production of new collagen takes time, so results can become more apparent over two to three months, even up to six months. The procedure takes about 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area treated, and there is no downtime afterward. It is also the only non-invasive procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to actually see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most beneficial.

Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery, but won’t duplicate the results of a surgical facelift. Ultherapy is a great alternative, however, especially for those not ready for surgery.

As the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, Ultherapy is designed to treat “turkey neck,” one of the common signs of aging skin. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look without surgery or downtime.

Décolletage is the French term used in reference to a woman’s upper chest area that is visible when wearing low-cut necklines of clothing. It’s one of the areas that show signs of aging first, along with the face and neck. And Ultherapy is the only treatment FDA-cleared to improve lines and wrinkles in that area.

Ultherapy uses sound energy—tried-and-true ultrasound—which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over two to three months. Some lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers. Typically, laser treatments also only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual. While results appear over two to three months, they can last up to a year or more. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

There may be slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours following the treatment. Some patients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.

With Ultherapy, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any post-treatment measures.

The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment, depending on how much skin laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process. Follow-up Ultherapy treatments each year may help maintain results.

Pricing for an Ultherapy treatment can vary, depending upon the areas being treated. Treatment will be customized to meet each patient’s needs, and exact pricing can be discussed during consultation meetings.

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically, or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
