Online PR News – 03-September-2012 – Summit, NJ – Ulthera, also known as Ultherapy, is the latest procedure in the anti-aging and cosmetic armamentarium. Prior to Ulthera in NJ, skin tightening procedures utilized either light based or radio frequency sources to heat the skin resulting in skin tightening. There are two main differences between Ulthera (Ultherapy) and other devices such as Titan, Refirme, Thermage, and Alma Accent. These devices typically work from top down, meaning they deliver heat to the skin starting from the top layer to the bottom layer of skin. However the energy often times does not penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, such as the fascia which covers the muscles. Often times, results are disappointing although some people do experience visible tightening. Second, multiple treatments are often necessary to obtain those results. Ulthera works on the deeper layers by utilizing ultrasound energy which is able to penetrate the deeper layers to effect skin tightening. Also, most clients will see a visible difference after 1 treatment.
Ultherapy in NJ can be used on the face and neck to treat sagging skin. It can be utilized to lift the brow, mid face and lower face and the neck region as well. Further research is currently underway and will likely demonstrate ultherapy to be effective on other parts of the body as well such s the arms, knees, and abdomen. In addition, it may also be effective in reducing excessive sweating in the underarm region.
Ultherapy in NJ can be performed in as little as 45 minutes although a full face and neck treatment takes one and a half hours. Everyone is a candidate including those with ethnic skin as Ulthera utilizes sound energy as opposed to light energy. Medications for light sedation and pain control, such as Valium and/or Percocet, may be given. In addition topical numbing as well as injection blocks with anesthetic may be employed to make the procedure comfortable. Most people will experience tolerable discomfort although some people have found the treatment to be painful. Pain tolerance is individual and varies from person to person.
Cost of Ultherapy in NJ varies but costs $1000 for a brow lift, $2500 for lower face, and $3500 for a full face and upper neck treatment. Depending on the location, it may cost a little more or less.
