Skin Tightening-Ultherapy in Mohali

What are Ulthera and Ultherapy?

Ulthera is a device that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy, a blend of the words ‘Ulthera’ and ‘therapy’ describes the treatment performed with the Ulthera device. It is a safe non-surgical method to lift and tighten skin without any visible downtime. Skin Tightening therapy is a very effective way to make your skin look better.

Ultherapy is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift. It’s used to counteract signs of aging like skin sagging and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest as well as drooping of the brow area. The FDA-cleared technology stimulates collagen production, which should create a more youthful look overall.

How does it work?

Medically, ultrasound is used for a variety of reasons. The term ‘ultrasound’ is commonly associated with pregnancy scans. In these ultrasound scans, high-frequency sound waves are emitted by a handpiece, and the reflections of these soundwaves are recaptured to form an image. Conversely, Ultherapy focuses ultrasound waves to a specific point deep within the skin or beneath the skin. This heats and coagulates proteins that in turn stimulate new collagen formation and tightening or lifting of the skin.

What can be treated?

Utilizing the power of focused ultrasound, Ulthera skin tightening can be used to lift and tighten the jawline, chin, brow, and neck with one treatment. It is not a replacement for a surgical face-lift. Instead, it provides an alternative for those who are looking for a non-invasive treatment to tighten skin and slow the facial aging process.
