A quick, effective non-surgical face-lift using Ultrasound technology.
Ulthera™ tightens, pulls and lifts those problematic areas – giving the appearance of a face-lift – without any surgery or downtime!
Video Ulthera™ is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ultrasound imaging and therapy. Its established technology makes it both safe and incredibly effective. Results include firmer, tighter, more fit-looking skin in areas of the face (saggy eyes, cheeks) and neck and an overall refreshed appearance as well!
As with sonograms, an image is projected onto a screen that both you and the medical practitioner can see. The sound waves then deliver small, controlled amounts of energy into the deep layers of skin and soft tissue while sparing the upper layers. Your skin’s response to the energy is to contract slightly right away, and then to stimulate the growth of new collagen over time. A gradual tightening occurs, ultimately resulting in a natural, beneficial lift of facial skin tissue.
The procedure has an excellent safety profile, although painful it is tolerated without need for an anaesthetic, and as sessions are only 30 minutes long the patient can return to his or her daily routine immediately. The only minor after-effects the patient’s might experience is the skin may appear a bit flushed or puffy immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear in a matter of hours.
Ultrasound therapy, trusted by doctors and expectant mothers everywhere for decades now adds a new dimension to aesthetic medicine and Laserderm’s patients were the first in South Africa to benefit from this incredible new procedure.
