What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the name given to the facial tightening treatment harnessing the power of
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a minimally invasive procedure that uses ultrasound waves to treat certain conditions, such as skin laxity and signs of aging. The very high-intensity and highly focused sound waves interact with targeted tissues to modify or destroy them. In this case we target lax cortical collagen, snapping tight the aged collagen and producing an immediate tightening both visible and tangible.
Over the following weeks the body produces new collagen to replace the tightened aged fibres.
The result is an instant improvement that gets better over the following weeks.
Is it painful?
There is a sensation to this treatment, everyone however seems to tolerate this differently.
As with all treatments that produce heat, the sensation builds through treatment.
Great communication is key, all aspects are controlled by your Practitioner, so if you do feel any discomfort it is important you voice this so the treatment can be amended to provide you the most comfort and the best treatment outcome.
Most clients feel a hot tingly /pulsing sensation, most describe this as comfortable for the most part and tolerable when the heat builds.
