The Ulthera® System was cleared by the FDA in 2009 for a non-invasive eyebrow lift indication following a full face treatment and is currently marketed worldwide.
In late 2012, the FDA cleared the Ulthera System to be safe and effective for the lifting of lax submental
(beneath the chin) and neck tissue.
What it is is concentrated ultrasound waves, that heat up the collagen, and allow remodelling and stimulation of new collagen!Hence a facelift procedure with no down time!
The areas that it’s great for-
– Cheeks( naso labial folds)
– Jowls, or face lifting,
– Neck, and chin
Decolletage( chest area)
and recently a great treatment for excessive under-arm sweating( Hyperhydrosis Axillae).
So what does it entail?
After being assessed by Dr young, or our fully trained therapist, you may be a candidate for this procedure. A series of standardized photos, a consent form, and anaesthetic cream may be applied.
Then the area or areas to be treated will be marked and then a suitable program will be input for you.
An after care protocol will be discussed, and then that is it!
In terms of results, we normally will see an initial improvement after 4-6 weeks, so be patient.
