Qvita Health and Wellness is proud to offer Ultherapy. Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. Ultrasound energy has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. Ultherapy® treatments jumpstart a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy® doesn’t involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on the body’s own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to non-invasively lift and tighten skin. Ultrasound is a form of mechanical energy that is significantly diffferent than Light (Lasers) and Electrical (Radio-Frequency) energy. During Ultherapy, ultrasound it is micro-focused below the skin’s surface to cause cellular friction and precise, pin-point heating. Similar to a magnifying glass focusing sunlight, heat is only generated at the focal point, leaving the skin’s surface and intervening tissue unaffected. Tissue at the focal point is heated to ~65°C, causing immediate collagen contraction and denaturation, and initiating aggressive collagen synthesis. Over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue remodeling and leads to further lifting and tightening, with results that can last a year or more.
Ultherapy is great alternative, especially for those not ready for surgery or for clients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. Do you have mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm? Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy® might be your answer!
