What is Ultherapy?Ultherapy is the ONlY FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest or décolletage area.
Why is Ultherapy different than other non-surgical cosmetic procedures?There are so many devices, pills and lotions on the market right now that claim to renew collagen and many of them do in fact do that. Ultherapy is different because it “focuses on collagen” in a most effective way. It focusses on the protein that holds our skin together to provide strength and structure– like a scaffold. Unlike other procedures, it bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This penetration below the surface of the skin allows the procedure to work better to regenerate the process that produces fresh new collagen.
Is Ultherapy painful?More recent treatment protocols make the treatment much less painful than in the past, however there may be some discomfort. When the heat is focused on the soft tissues of the face and not the deep bony tissue, the treatment results are much better and very tolerable. More recent precision protocols of the device technology allow for much better precision of depth of treatment – with much less discomfort and ultimately much better results.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?Ultherapy is great for men and women who have optimal under skin foundation with remaining loose skin. Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.
How does Ultherapy work?Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. As you know, Ultrasound has been used safely in many areas of medicine for more than 50 years. The highly focussed ultrasound waves of the Ultherapy device are directed to the deep skin layers and the connective tissues whereby intense heat is generated. From this ultrasound intense heat, collagen production is stimulated and the skin tightens.
Will Ultherapy cure all my wrinkle and sagging skin problems?Ultherapy can be a great way to “enhance” the natural appearing improvements that you obtain with non-surgical injectables, namely cosmetic fillers. Cosmetic fillers, such as Radiesse, restore the lost support system under the skin, thereby returning the shape of the face back to its earlier positions. Ultherapy provides an added benefit and improvement after cosmetic fillers to tighten the skin.
What does VERVE recommend as an Ultherapy treatment package?There isn’t one non-surgical treatment that can fix everything. At VERVE, our doctors are focused on solely on non-surgical cosmetic treatments. This is all we do. Our case studies show that a combination of treatments are recommended to keep you appearing rested and natural. Here is a 3-step sample of products we use at VERVE that are part of our VERVE Baselift(™) treatment to lift and replace lost volume in the full-face. 1. Cosmetic relaxers: These are treatments you hear about all the time. Botox Cosmetic and Xeomin are botulinum toxins or muscle relaxers that prevent the muscular pull that causes movement wrinkles and ultimately reducing the skin damage that results as a consequence of repetitive movements. 2.Cosmetic fillers: You have heard these referred to in national beauty magazines as Radiesse, Restylane, Juvederm and Voluma. These products restore the lost foundation under the skin and return the shape of the face to its more youthful and attractive position. Remember, these products do not treat every sagging skin problem. An experienced injector will personalize your treatment and recommend the right product for your “personal” problems. 3. Ultherapy: If you are interested in boosting your results or extending the results, we recommend that you add Ultherapy treatments to complement your cosmetic treatments and tightening the skin and tissues of the face.
