How does Ultherapy Work (KW Ultherapy)

Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. Here’s how it works:

  1. Ultrasound energy delivery:

Ultherapy uses a handheld device that emits focused ultrasound energy. This energy is delivered precisely at various depths beneath the skin’s surface, targeting the foundational layers where collagen is produced.

  1. Thermal coagulation:

As the ultrasound energy passes through the skin, it creates precise zones of thermal coagulation or heat at specific depths. This controlled heating stimulates the body’s natural healing response, triggering the production of fresh, new collagen.

  1. Collagen production:

The thermal effect from the ultrasound energy causes the existing collagen fibers to contract and tighten immediately. More importantly, it kickstarts a process of neocollagenesis, where the body produces new collagen over the following months.

  1. Skin tightening and lifting:

As the newly produced collagen fibers gradually develop and strengthen over time (typically 2-3 months after treatment), they create a lifting and tightening effect on the skin from within. This process helps to counteract the effects of aging and gravity, resulting in a more youthful, lifted appearance.

  1. Targeted treatment areas:

Ultherapy can be used to treat various areas of the face and body, including the brow, cheeks, neck, décolletage, and even the arms and knees. The ultrasound energy can be focused at different depths to address specific concerns in each area.

Ultherapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require any downtime or recovery period. The treatment is typically completed in one session, and results can last up to a year or more, depending on the individual’s aging process and lifestyle factors.

It’s important to note that Ultherapy is not a replacement for surgical procedures like a facelift, but it can be an effective alternative for those seeking a non-invasive option for skin tightening and lifting.
