Ultherapy, a non-invasive cosmetic procedure for lifting skin was launched in India on July 5.
The technique takes only a few hours. It does not give any superficial marks or burns. The machine used for the therapy works on imaging and treatment.
"Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure, which is US FDA-cleared, to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin and over the eyebrow. It can also improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the decolletage and can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest," Soma Sarkar, a leading cosmetic dermatologist.
The Ultherapy procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, and delivers targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues where collagen lives and creates a natural and regenerative response.
The procedure simulates the growth of new collagen, which lifts and tightens the skin over time.
"Because ultrasound technology actually works non-invasively from the inside-out, results build gradually over two-three months, and can continue to improve up to six months after the procedure," said Sarkar.
The US FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) cleared the procedure after safety demonstrations in clinical studies.
"One can see which level of skin is being treated and the machine has a hand-device through which the energy is delivered to the targeted skin layer. There is no incision or any injury to the skin and the results come to peak at the end of three months. The machine is also completely portable and requires less space and is easy to handle," Sarkar said.
Inder Raj S. Makin, co-founder of Ulthera Inc, said "Ultherapy is the perfect medical treatment for those who didn't wish to undergo surgery. The procedure is used in more than 55 countries and some 40 scientific papers have been published on the procedure. More than twice that number of scientific lectures have also been delivered at various platforms."
