Ultherapy is a non-invasive medical treatment using microfocused ultrasound with visualization (MFU-V), which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin deep into the layers of your skin. The energy delivered by the ultrasound from the inside out, allows the energy to pass through the surface of the skin without damaging it. Microfocalized ultrasound can reach a depth of 4.5 mm (much more than lasers and radio frequency) which will smooth the skin and lift it; this is the same depth that is targeted during a surgical facelift.
How to lift and firm the skin without surgery?
The microfocused ultrasound facelift with visualization (MFU-V), allows you to visualize the areas to be treated (1.5, 3 and 4.5 mm) according to your skin. Indeed, the depth of the areas that are targeted by the treatment vary according to the thickness of the skin and the weight of the patient. The treatment, which allows you to visualize the areas to be targeted by ultrasound, is therefore personalized and will reach the areas where it will be necessary to stimulate collagen and elastin, thus producing the best possible result.
It is a safe and effective treatment that can be combined with injections of diluted Radiesse®, a treatment that also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
WHAT CAN BE TREATED?
Lifting eyebrows, sagging skin on the face, neck, décolleté and other parts of the body (arms, abdomen, thighs and buttocks).
A gel is applied to the skin, and a handpiece called a transducer is placed on the area to be treated and moved to deliver ultrasound “lines” according to the protocol established for your treatment.
Not very important on the body and face, a little more important on the neck.

We ask you to take painkillers 1 hour before the session and we will apply an anesthetic cream 30 minutes before the treatment.
30 to 90 minutes depending on the treated area.
