Ultherapy Non-Surgical Brow Lift
WHAT IS ULTHERAPY?
Ultherapy is the FDA cleared non-invasive procedure used to lift and tighten the skin. The Ultherapy procedure can also be performed to create a custom non-surgical brow lift. Ultrasound is a form of energy that is significantly different than light (Lasers) and electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. Ultherapy works by administering ultrasound energy in the form of heat to specific depths of skin and muscle with precise ultrasound guidance, which causes tissue tightening and collagen production. When the tissue is tightened above the brow, the brow is lifted. Ultherapy can be used not only to lift the brow, but also to treat wrinkled skin on the forehead.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The results from an Ultherapy treatment work in a two-step process. The first stage is the contraction and denaturing of collagen, which causes an immediate tissue tightening, and resultant lift. The second stage occurs over time while the body’s healing response builds new collagen (neocollagenesis).1 New collagen production is generated over 2-3 months and often continues for 6 months after the treatment. Full results are visible after 3 to 6 months.
WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE?
The ideal candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity. Ultherapy can help patients so that their eyelid does not feel so heavy. Patients’ with hooded or droopy lids may feel like neurotoxins aren’t as effective as they used to be to lift the brows. Ultherapy above the brows is a great alternative or addition to a neurotoxin regimen. To maximize the results, Dr. Casas will recommend a prescription strength skin care regimen like Jan Marini.
DO I NEED TIME OFF WORK?
There is no downtime post Ultherapy and patients can return to their daily activities including the gym or work! Book your appointment today in Glenview for your Ultherapy treatment with Dr. Casas and her staff.
