Ultherapy®, introduced only two years ago, has revolutionized non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It may be the most promising treatment for overall skin tightening, according to the results of non-facial clinical tests. Patients and physicians agree that Ultherapy® is one of the greatest technologies developed in recent years. Now it’s better than ever!
This system uses a combination of ultrasound imagery and ultrasound therapy, in a patented technology called DeepSEE®. The dual capabilities of this device provide real-time, visual guidance, allowing us to deliver treatment with precision accuracy, and exceptional safety. One of the greatest features of Ultherapy® is customizable treatment.
The three-piece unit includes a base and hand-piece, along with interchangeable DeepSEE® transducers. What does that mean to you? It means that we can fine-tune your treatment, adjusting the amount of energy delivered, and the depth that it reaches. The base unit includes touch screen controls, and displays high quality images up to 8mm deep. The hand-piece allows for treatment from various angles, to accommodate facial and body contours. The transducer actually delivers ultrasound energy to a specific depth.
We can target various layers by changing the transducer. The 4.5mm transducer delivers energy to the sub dermal foundation, which was previously inaccessible by nonsurgical treatment. The 3mm transducer targets the deep dermis, without generating the surface heat associated with radio frequency therapy. With the introduction of the new 1.5mm superficial transducer, Ultherapy became more versatile than ever. We can now effectively target the dermis, safely treating delicate areas such as around the eyes and vertical lines around the lips.
Along with this new technology, Ulthera® has announced new treatment guidelines, resulting from intensive clinical trials. The treatment has been proven safe with a 40 percent increase in energy delivery, for greater effectiveness. The manufacturer recommends that experienced practitioners modify guidelines to customize treatment further, accommodating each patient’s individual needs. As one of the first practices in New York to offer Ultherapy®, the team at The New York Aesthetic Consultants LLP is experienced and exceptionally skilled in using this technology.
While Ultherapy® is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, it is a fantastic noninvasive alternative, offering many of the same benefits with no downtime, no healing, and no scarring. It is an excellent option for patients who have mild to moderate sagging, who wish to extend the results of surgery, and those who simply do not want to go under the knife.
