Ultherapy has been used in France since 2012, and has already been in use in the USA and other countries for 6 years. Ulthera is approved by the extremely rigorous FDA. Numerous clinical studies have been undertaken into its effectiveness.
Its use of micro-focused ultrasound means that just one session is necessary. Ultrasound, which has long been used for ultrasound scans, and is well-known for its safety, stimulates skin regeneration with deep action, but does not damage the skin’s surface.
Ultrasound acts at a deep level, its pulses converging on a single point, where concentrated energy leads to tissue coagulation.
Three different hand pieces are used for facial treatment : the 1.5 is used for the epidermis, and the 3 and 4.5 act more deeply at the dermal layer.
Ulthera’s effects are progressive, taking around 3 months : this time is needed for new collagen to be generated.
