High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. It uses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest that have lost elasticity and firmness over time.
Many factors contribute to the sagging of the skin such as pregnancy, puberty or, even weight gain. Loss of collagen plays a major part too. Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy — tried-and-true ultrasound — to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. The thermal effect essentially jump-starts a process that produces fresh, new collagen.
