ULTHERAPY

What is Ultherapy?


It is a non-surgical lifting treatment by using ultrasonic waves to improve skin tone.
It is a safe system that allows you to watch skin structure through an ultrasonic wave imaging device without cutting skin by using HIFU-Knife, or highly-intensive integrated ultrasound knife. It able to tighten and lift the facial skin without any damage to the surface of skin impacting only deeper layers of skin.

What is HIFU?

HIFU is generally used to general medicine. HIFU is a radiological graphic tool which selectively shows tissue inside the body. Ulthera is the first to equip HIFU for cosmetic treatment. Using HIFU technology, Ulthera is able to transfer the heat energy into 3~4.5 mm under the surface of the skin. This heat energy raises  the thermal coagulation point which accelerates the skin rejuvenation process and maximizes tightening effects of skin.

Ulthera refers to High Intensity Focused Ultrasound system.
Like burning paper by light Integrated by magnifying lenses. It can lift your skin
by forming thermal hardening zone on SMAS layer through ultrasound wave without surgery.

Advantages of Ultherapy

1. A diagnosis and treatment by ultrasound wave  allows for conducting the treatment while monitoring inner skin structure and enhancing treatment accuracy.
2. Minimal downtime and can resume normal activities same day after treatment.
3. Non-invasive method of lifting the face by tightening the skin and deeper tissues as it delivers ultrasonic energy to the SMAS layer that is considered important for facial lifting.
4. FDA certifying medical device.
