Ultherapy is A Non – Surgical Face and Neck Lift Utilizing ￼Ultrasound .It is a face and neck treatment that ￼creates a brand new category in aesthetics: non- ￼invasive tissue lifting. As always, Dr. Nield continues ￼to keep on top of new medical advances and has ￼begun to offer this exciting new procedure since ￼December 2010.Dr. Nield performs the procedure ￼herself, ensuring the highest level of care for all of ￼her patients. Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound energy to lift and ￼tighten the skin in a short, 30 to 60 minute ￼procedure. Ultrasound imaging focuses energy on ￼sagging areas of the face and neck, stimulating the ￼body to rebuild the supportive collagen fiber ￼network that decreases with age. Because the skin’s ￼top layer is not disrupted, there is very little ￼downtime. Most patients will be able to resume ￼normal activities by the next day. The result is a ￼natural, gradual firming, tightening and actual lifting ￼of the face and neck.
For the first time ever, Non-Invasive ultrasound ￼lifting enables physicians to direct sound waves not ￼only into the skin but deep under the skin to the ￼same tissues addressed in surgery. This gently heats ￼the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without ￼cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides ￼the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is ￼also an invisible result from with the formation of ￼new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its ￼youthfulness.
Non-Invasive ultrasound lifting utilizing Ultherapy seems to be much ￼more effective than the older technology of ￼Thermage which used radiofrequency. Non-Invasive ￼ultrasound lifting is the most advanced skin ￼tightening and lifting treatment available. We have ￼treated many patients who initially tried Thermage ￼ and were disappointed with the results of this older technology. These ￼same patients are extremely happy with the results ￼from only one Non-Invasive ultrasound lifting ￼treatment with Ultherapy.
￼Non-Invasive ultrasound lifting lifts, and tightens ￼loose skin to counteract the effects of time and ￼gravity. One of the first effects of gravity is that the ￼brows descend, and the eyes start to appear ￼smaller. An Ultherapy treatment will lift the brow, which in turn reduces the ￼excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives ￼a more refreshed appearance. When the skin on the ￼cheeks and neck begins to shift downward, the ￼result is a change in the contour of the lower face. ￼An Ultherapy treatment will lift and tighten the sagging skin on the cheeks ￼and neck to give a more youthful look. Ultherapy can also treat and rejuvenate wrinkled chests.
￼The beauty of Non-Invasive ultrasound lifting is that ￼it uses the body’s own subtle healing response to ￼gently, gradually and reliably restore firmness to the ￼skin and its underlying tissues. Ultherapy requires no special ￼recuperation or preparation and typically only takes ￼one treatment to get a meaningful response. ￼Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately ￼following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will ￼take place over 3-6 months, as damaged collagen is ￼rejuvenated and supplemented with newer, ￼stronger collagen.
￼This isn’t a replacement for the dramatic effects of ￼surgery, but Utherapy offers a ‘no downtime’ approach to improving lax facial and neck skin in a meaningful ￼way.
Non-Invasive ultrasound lifting enhances the cosmetic results of Cosmetic Wrinkle Injections such as Xeomin, Collagen and other Dermal Fillers. It can be used in conjunction with other rejuvenating procedures available at the Woodbridge Dermatology and Laser Centre such as chemical peels, dermal infusion face treatments, microdermabrasion, photofacials, and photodynamic therapy. Cosmeceuticals and sunscreens help maintain the benefits of all of these cosmetic procedures.
