Ultherapy

What can I expect afterward?

You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and there are no special measures you need to take. Your skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours. It is not uncommon to experience slight swelling for a few days following the procedure or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few weeks following the procedure, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is the possibility of other less common post-procedural effects, such as temporary small areas of bruising or numbness, which your physician will review with you.

 

Is it Safe?

Ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with over 50 years of use in the field of medicine, and clinical trials have demonstrated the safety of the latest application.

What kind of results can I expect?

With just one treatment, the regenerative process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months. Further improvements can even appear up to six months following a procedure. Some patients may benefit from more than one treatment.

Visible effects include a lifting and toning of sagging skin. In the FDA clinical trial for instance, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line. This resulted in reduced skin laxity on the eyelid and a more open, youthful look to the eyes overall. Patients reported firmer, better-fitting skin in other areas of the face as well. There is also an invisible result from more youthful, collagen and elastin that help strengthen the skin from within.

 

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing"skin. While it does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not ready for surgery.

 

 

 

 

Luminique Cosmetic & Laser is proud to be the first clinic in Saskatchewan to offer Ultherapy, the first FDA cleared technology ever approved for skin lightening.

 

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a non-surgical ultrasound treatment for counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your

skin. The beauty of this 30-60 minute face treatment is that it uses the body's own regenerative response to gradually strengthen the skin and underlying tissue support.

 

How does the Ultherapy Procedure Work?

As with ultrasound procedures, a smooth applicator placed upon your skin projects an image onto a screen that allows your practitioner to plan your treatment. This same applicator is then used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a positive effect, all the while leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed.

Your skin's response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.

 

How is the procedure different than other cosmetic procedures?

Ultherapy is the only non-surgical procedure that allows practitioners to see below the surface of the skin and to specifically target the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address with surgical face-lifts. The ability to treat not just the skin but its underlying support very precisely, from the inside out, helps to ensure both safe and satisfying results, with no downtime.

 

What does it feel like?

There can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but it is temporary, and a signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, and practitioners will discuss options for making the experience as pleasant as possible.
