Ultherapy at Spa West
Ultherapy has been deemed the nonsurgical facelift for lifting and tightening the skin without using any invasive measures or techniques. This treatment is the perfect option for those who aren’t ready to commit to a facelift or other surgical skin tightening procedures. We offer this innovative anti-aging treatment to help our patients look and feel their best without any downtime, surgery, or pain.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy uses an ultrasound device, but one that is specifically designed to lift and tighten the skin. It uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, which leads to an immediate contraction and the inevitable increase of collagen and elastin over time.
This device is fitted with a handpiece that is connected to an imaging screen. The ultrasound energy used during the treatment is different than the energy used in a medical ultrasound because it is micro-focused—the micro-focused energy zones in on a specific area, not just a general area of your skin.
How Does It Work?
During the treatment process, your technician will see your skin and its deeper layers appear on the screen. This imaging system allows the technician to use accuracy and precision while treating your specific areas of concern. With the help of the digital images of the deeper layers of your skin, your technician can apply ultrasound energy to different areas of the face, neck, and chest as needed to stimulate collagen production that will help restore youth to your skin.
