Like the ultrasound technology which allow gynecologists to view an unborn foetus, Ultherapy ($4,500 per session) uses ultrasound imaging to view the structure of skin at different depths in order to map out the ultrasound energy and deposit it where it’s most beneficial for the skin. A wand is then applied on the face which heats skin tissue to a temperature of 60 to 70 degree Celsius – the temperature at which skin’s regenerative process is set off. Depending on the part of the face, ultrasound energy is administered at 1.5 mm, 3 mm and 4.5 mm to stimulate collagen production and trigger tissue contraction similar to the effect of a surgical facelift. Immediate results can be seen, but the full effect of collagen growth and smoother skin comes into play in about a month when collagen regrowth can be observed.
