What is Ultherapy and how does it work?
Ultherapy is a highly focused ultrasound based device.
The ultrasound penetrates deep under your skin to the SMAS layer which is like a dense sheet. The energy from this device creates micro wounds , which while healing leads to a tighter lifted skin.
What is the procedure like?
After the basic preparation and cleaning, a numbing cream is applied and left on the skin for an hour. Then the procedure is conducted with a series of shots that are warm and prickly, for an hour, depending on the areas chosen.
What can I expect out of Ultherapy?
- Lifted skin
- Youthful face
- Amazing definition to your lower face and cheeks
- Sharp jaw line
- Plumper / lifted mid face
- Brow lift
- Less hooding of eyelids
P.S – This is Dr. Shetty’s personal favourite for her face as well.
When do I see the results?
Results appear soon after the treatment and keep on improving up until 3 months.
How long do the results last?
Equipments meant for anti-ageing whether skin lifting or tightening are meant to take your skin back in age. From there on you start ageing again.
So the question of how long the results will last, depends on you.
On an average, we schedule repeated sittings anywhere between 6 months to one year.
What can go wrong?
You may have some temporary redness and swelling post the treatment.It may last for 1 to 2 days.
The treated skin may feel tender for over a week.
