Ultherapy is the only FDA approved treatment that uses Ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the neck, chin, brow and improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound to target the deep foundation below the skin without cutting or disrupting the epidermal tissue. Ultherapy uses depth, temperature, precision, and imaging to provide effective and lasting results.
Celebrity Christie Brinkley swears by Ultherapy and is an avid spokesman for this treatment.
Ultherapy skin tightening treatments can only be performed by licensed practitioners, meaning a patient is under the care of a professionally trained technician.
The Hifu technology and device was created in China as a copycat for the Ultherapy procedure. Hifu which stands for high-intensity focused ultrasound; is not FDA approved for skin tightening. Unfortunately without FDA approval, many clinics offer skin tightening treatment from these Hifu machines at a much lower cost.
There have been no U.S studies to evaluate the effectiveness of the HIFU device, or to determine if they are safe to use.
Often times the procedure can be performed by anyone who owns a HIFU machine. There have been cases of partial blindness and facial burns from improper use.
Ultherapy is still the gold standard for doctors and practitioners worldwide in non-invasive skin tightening and lifting.
Don’t be fooled by anything claiming to provide Ultherapy results that are not “Ultherapy machines” or FDA approved for skin tightening.
There have been more than 1 Million successful Ultherapy® treatments performed worldwide.
