UltraLift Skin Tightening
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
A non-surgical treatment that uses the safe, HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound) technology to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin to tighten and lift without disturbing the surface.
This micro-focused ultrasound treatment can effectively combat signs of aging and troublesome skin laxity to create a youthful appearance on the face and body. It is a revolutionary non invasive face lifting technology with no patient downtime, using gentle yet powerful micro-focused ultrasound to lift not just the skin but also the deep muscle layer underneath.
The Ultralift treatment will stimulate the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from within. During the Ultralift treatment, warm pulses of ultrasound energy are delivered deep under the skin, causing the muscle layer to contract. At the same time, the gentle heat also encourages the healthy, natural process of rejuvenation, stimulating your skin to produce its own fresh new collagen, making skin firmer, brighter, tighter and more elastic.
HIFU is considered a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure for tightening the facial skin.
Its advantages over a surgical face lift are hard to deny. There are no incisions, no scarring, and no required rest or recovery time. HIFU is also far less expensive than a face lift.
Most people see full results three months after their final treatment.
If you’re looking for a treatment that is quick, painless, and noninvasive, HIFU is an excellent option compared to a surgical face lift.
Of course, HIFU isn’t a miracle cure for aging. The procedure is best suited for patients with mild-to-moderate skin laxity, and you may need to have the procedure repeated in one to two years as the natural aging process takes over.
If you’re older with more severe skin sagging and wrinkles, HIFU may not be able to eliminate these skin issues.
In less than an hour you can go about your day after a single Ultralift procedure to tighter, firmer, better-fitting skin. You may notice a short-term "boost" but the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen builds over time.
Every 4 to 6 months
To help with the little discomfort we suggest taking acetaminophen (Tylenol) or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen (Advil), prior to treatment.
Face will be cleansed
Technician then applies an ultrasound gel.
The HIFU device is placed against the skin.
Using an ultrasound viewer, the technician adjusts the device to the right setting.
Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the target area in short pulses for roughly 30 to 90 minutes.
While the ultrasound energy is being applied, you might feel heat and tingling.
Some slight redness or swelling may occur, but it should subside quickly. A light tingling sensation of the treated area may persist for a few weeks.
Rarely, you may experience temporary numbness or bruising, but these side effects usually go away after a few days.
You’re free to go home and resume your normal daily activities right away after the procedure.
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling, which will gradually recede over the next few hours.
You’re able to resume your normal activities immediately after you leave the provider’s office.
If additional treatments are needed, you will schedule the next treatment.
Over multiple treatments, and maintenance, as collagen and elastin regenerates, the skin will feel firmer, tighter and smoother
