1.What kind of technology does Ultralifting use?
Ultralifting uses micro focus Ultrasound energy to heat the deep skin layer. Ultrasound has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years; UltraLifting has been also established as safe and effective in clinical studies.
2. What does the Ultralifting do?
Ultralifting delivers focused ultrasound energy below the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. As a result, skin will actually begin to lift and tone over time.
3. What do I feel during the treatment?
Some patients feel it is well bearable and feel like tiny electrical pricks, while others reported the tolerated discomfort when the ultrasound energy is delivered into the skin, but it is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
4. Are there any side effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is always the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
5. How long does the ultrasound treatment take?
A full face treatment takes 45-60 minutes, and a brow lift treatment can take around 20 minutes. After the treatment, you can back to your daily life without any downtime.
6. How long until I see results?
Patients may enjoy some initial effect immediately after treatment, a subtle result will be seen in 1 month, but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, more elastic collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.
7. Will I need more than one treatment?
The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on how much laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and collagen-building process).
8. How long do results last?
Patients treated with Ultralifting still have fresh young collagen after 1 to 2 years time following the procedure. but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
9. What is the most special feature of Ultralifting ?
Ultralifting is the most innovative technology for non-invasive facelifting. The energy can reach the deep foundation below the skin that is normally only can be reached by cosmetic surgery.
10. How is Ultralifting different from lasers?
The first difference comes from the depth of the energy: Lasers typically reach the superficial layers of the skin (e.g. fine lines, wrinkles, pigment changes). Ultralifting can reach the deep skin layer and the foundational layer (SMAS). Therefore, the two technologies are quite complementary in changing skin from inside to outside.
11. Who is a good candidate for Ultralifting?
A good candidate for Ultralifting is someone with skin that has noticeable sagging and less firm. A lowered eyebrow line, a sagging eyelids or a double china. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
Ultralifting is ideal for those people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery. There are also people who want to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery by another non-surgical way.
