Ultherapy treatment is a new form of treatment for skin tightening and eye lifting. The name of the actual device being used is called ulthera. If you want to know how ultherapy works, below is a simple guide that you can follow and read on.
The ulthera device uses ultrasound technology as the basis of its skin tightening solution. What happens is that the device will send a concentrated burst of ultrasound to the targeted area. Several bursts of ultrasound will be sent. The first wave will target the deep foundational layer of the skin while the second wave will be sent to the skin itself. What these sound waves will cause the tissues to contract and the body to create new collagen. For this technique to be effective, the right amount of ultrasound will need to be delivered and this is what ultherapy can deliver.
The power of ulthera is that it can reach both layers of the skin without doing any damage to both. This is what gets patients excited as it means a faster recovery period, a less painful experience and a more effective solution.
Patients will sense a warm feeling when these soundwaves reach your body. It will not be painful but there will definitely be a warm sensation around the target area. However, if the fatty areas are around your bones, the discomfort might be stronger. This period of discomfort will be short as there is no downtime for ultherapy treatment.
What you can do to maximise your comfort depends on the clinic. You need to ask the doctor on what will be used during the treatment. It can be anything from relaxation techniques to cooling fans and stress balls to medications. These additional techniques will help you to feel more comfort before and after the procedure.
