HOW DOES THE ULTHERAPY PROCEDURE WORKS?
Ultherapy is a nonsurgical procedure that aims the places under the skin with concentrated ultrasound energy with the application of the appropriate temperature for the production of collagen. The generated heat energy is focused on three various depths and touches three significant layers which are the skin, muscle, and the superficial wrinkles.
The ultrasound energy ensures the stimulation of the elastic tissue and collagen which lead to fewer wrinkles, less sagging, and a thick skin.
PREPARATION FOR ULTHERAPY
There is no laborious preparation for Ultherapy. There is a need to eat, drink, and exercise your body before and after the Ultherapy procedure.
Before the procedure is done, it is essential to take off makeup and other skin care products from the target area. You may use an anti-inflammatory pill or medication that reduces pain according to the instructions of your health provider before the commencement of the process. However, if the medicine will make you feel drowsy while driving, you can discuss to have someone pick you from the office after the procedure.
The physician or a laser technician will ensure the target areas they want to work on are cleaned with oil and rub an ultrasound gel. An Ultherapy device is positioned on the skin, and an ultrasound viewer will be used by the professional to set the device to the right settings. This will ensure the delivery of ultrasound energy to the targeted areas. In some cases, patients might experience fast, sporadic feelings of heat and pricking during the treatment phase. Your provider may offer medication that relieves pain to take care of the sensation that makes you uncomfortable. The applicator is removed after the end of the Ultherapy procedure. Depending on the type of treatment, a single process can take up to 90 minutes. For instance, the Ultherapy treatment procedure on the chest will not take longer than thirty minutes while the treatment on the face and neck regions can take up to 60 to 90 minutes.
