The Beauty of Sound
The Reddy Aesthetic Institute is pleased to offer the first FDA approved non-invasive skin tightening technology. Ulthera, or Micro-focused ultrasound with visualization, harnesses the properties of sound to carefully and selectively target deep tissues of the face and neck to create skin tightening and lifting.
Ulthera treatments are administered in our offices and range in duration from 20-45 minutes per area. Clients of all skin types are candidates for Ulthera and there are few exclusions to treatment. I recommend Ibuprofen approximately 1-hour prior to treatment and I do not recommend topical analgesics.
Ulthera has been proven effective in clinical trials for treatment of the brow, midface, neck, and décolleté. It firmly occupies a tier in the spectrum of non-invasive treatments. Ulthera works by heating tissues at precise depths. The heated tissue responds by initiating a healing response which includes deposition of collagen and remodeling.
Results from Ulthera typically occur in two phases. There is an immediate skin tightening following treatment followed by a more gradual lift and qualitative improvement in skin quality as collagen is stimulated and re-organized. The second stage of results occurs at roughly 90-days following treatment.
One should consider Ulthera for the following reasons:
- Tightening of the chin or waddle
- Lifting of facial skin
- Lifting of the brow
- Improving the décolletage
- Treatment of fine lines around the eyes or mouth
Ulthera is extremely safe and no major complications have been reported with its use in over a quarter-million applications worldwide. Ulthera is neither a radiofrequency device nor is it LASER device.
The indications for Ulthera continue to expand and future applications may include non-invasive gluteal lifting, arm lifting, and medial thigh lifting.
To determine whether you may benefit from non-invasive skin-tightening with Ulthera, please arrange for a personal consultation at the Reddy Aesthetic institute.
