As we age, the years will noticeably, inevitably show on our faces. Skin sags, cheeks sink, and chin lines widen. Laxity commonly first occurs on the forehead, which leads to eyebrow descent, excess skin or hooding on the eyelids, and a less open-eyed appearance. Meanwhile, cheek and neck tissue laxity can lead to flattening of the mid-cheek, nasolabial folds, "marionette" lines surrounding the chin or downturned mouth, the loss of jawline angularity or jowls, and sagging under the chin. Fortunately, there is an effective, non-invasive, and sound solution for these effects.
ULTHERAPY is a non-surgical skin lifting procedure that uses tried and true ultrasound energy. It is non-invasive, US FDA cleared procedure that's to lift the skin on the neck, brow and under the chin.
Cosmetic procedures typically involve improving superficial layers of the skin of imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes. On the other hand, Ultherapy addresses deeper skin layer where weak collagen is reorganized and strengthened by the growth of new collagen leading to cosmetic enhancement that lends support to the skin.
Ultherapy by the numbers.
Ultherapy presentation by Dr. Peter Peng
Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V) to show the different tissue layers being targeted and structures, such as bone, to avoid. And it treats at pre-determined depths while bypassing the surface of the skin.
Focused ultrasound energy is delivered non-invasively to heat deep tissue without affecting the surface of the skin. The heat created triggers the body's natural response mechanism, which is to rejuvenate weakened collagen and supplement it with fresh, new collagen. Results build gradually over 2-3 months and can continue to improve up to 6 months post-procedure.
In the Philippines, Ultherapy is brought here by Merz Aesthetics, a division of Merz, the innovative leader in aesthetics.
