Westfield Ultherapy Technology
Using Ultrasound Technology to Stimulate Collagen Production
Aging is an inevitable part of life. Although this is true, many of us wish to prolong the beginning of the inevitable, and we are fortunate to live in an age where technologies make this easier. Ultherapy is a treatment that is getting a lot of media attention. You may have seen Ultherapy covered on shows like The Doctors or Good Morning America, or in magazines like Marie Claire and Vogue. Now it's time to investigate what this innovative use of ultrasound energy can do for you.
What Is Ultherapy?
At Burnett Plastic Surgery, we are happy to offer this acclaimed, non-invasive procedure for a non-surgical face lift effect. Ultherapy is a unique procedure in which results are achieved completely naturally, without the use of any toxin or injectable chemical. The ultrasound energy that targets the components for healthy skin counteracts the effects of time and gravity, leading to a refreshed, youthful face and neck. In a thirty to sixty minute session, Ultherapy prompts a natural regenerative response within the skin to tone and strengthen from the inside out.
Ultherapy has been generating interest in recent years after media attention from numerous national sources have shown the benefits of lifting, tightening, and toning the skin without surgery or downtime. Using safe, effective, and proven ultrasound technology, Ultherapy diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face, neck, and décolletage, and lifts the skin above the eye, under the chin, and on the neck.
How Does It Work?
Ultrasound energy is delivered into the skin's foundation, stimulating the production of collagen which diminishes as we age. Results may be visible immediately after treatment and, as the collagen in the body is replaced, continue to improve over two to three months. The lack of injections or chemicals reduces the chances of harmful side effects or infections to nearly zero.
What Should I Expect?
To determine if a patient is an ideal candidate for Ultherapy treatment, Dr. Burnett conducts a comprehensive consultation to evaluate the patient's skin condition, unique goals, and expectations. Afterward, our team custom-designs a plan of care. Treatment is done in thirty to sixty minutes in our boutique-like environment. Using a diagnostic ultrasound applicator to be able to view the layers beneath the surface, our clinical professional directs the precise, low-level heat deeply into the tissues to generate new collagen. The surface of the skin is not affected by the ultrasound technology. The collagen tones, tightens, and lifts the skin.
Patients may experience mild and temporary redness for about an hour, however, positive results can last up to a year after treatment.*
During Ultherapy sessions, your skilled practitioner runs a smooth applicator across the skin. Typical of ultrasound diagnostics, this applicator allows your practitioner to see below the skin. Using this same device, we can apply focused, low-level heat at the ideal depth for a favorable effect. Ultherapy does not treat the surface skin, only the cells below the surface. Affected by ultrasound heat, the cells are stimulated to produce healthy, new collagen, which will tone and tighten the skin, giving it a lifted appearance naturally.
