After a two-year drought without any new development in the anti-aging sector, there is a new and exciting device on the market called Ulthera. This device is developed in the United States and seems to be the next big wave in the world of aesthetics. Previously, most devices available on the market were variants of pre-existing technologies. Ulthera does not use laser or light, but ultrasound.
The use of a probe that scans the skin and allows us to see that we transmit ultrasonic energy to the desired skin layer, causes collagen regrowth and skin lift. It is particularly suitable for dark circles around the eyes. There are preliminary observations that this also reduces dynamic lines. As it uses ultrasound, this device is color-blind, just like Thermage, all skin colors are essential for our multicultural island. He will hit our island next month.
While engaging in a thermal lesion to stimulate the healing process of the wound, healthy tissues from the epidermis to the point of treatment are happily spared, leaving the skin surface virtually free of pain. possible side effects.
The procedure is slightly painful without anesthetic cream, but after application of a topical anesthesia, the treatment can be relatively painless. It takes about 40 minutes for a full facial treatment and there may be a slight erythema (redness) at the beginning of the first half hour. The results occur gradually over a period of 3 to 6 months and if further improvement is desired, it can be repeated. Otherwise, a maintenance once a year is enough to keep the skin well adjusted.
