About Ultherapy® in Victoria.
For Victoria and Vancouver island residents who are contemplating facial cosmetic surgery, but are concerned about the cost, risks, and recovery time involved, there is a non-surgical solution which provides lifting and tightening for mild to moderate skin laxity. Ultherapy® is a unique skin tightening ultrasound treatment, authorized by Health Canada for a non-surgical brow lift and for lifting of the neck and loose skin under the chin. In addition to delaying the need for surgery to address sagging skin, this innovative device has been Health Canada and FDA-cleared to smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the décolleté of the chest–a notoriously difficult area to treat.
Ultherapy® helps with:
- jawline & jowls
- heavy brow
How it works:
Ultherapy® uses precision, focused ultrasound technology to deliver sound waves directly to specific layers of the skin. Ultrasound energy affords the controlled transmission of heat to the deeper layer of connective tissue–a key component of the skin’s supportive network of fibers which provides its shape and definition. Effectively, existing collagen fibers are remodelled, rejuvenating facial contours as the production of new collagen is activated. As new collagen is continuously produced over a period of weeks and months, the skin’s firmness is improved, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed, and the features are lifted.
