Ultherapy induces new collagen and tightens connective tissue layers
Heat is produced when the ultrasound energy is absorbed by the dermis and this induces the production of new collagen. The dense supportive layer of connective tissue is tightened and this pulls up on the skin and subcutaneous tissue thereby lifting the facial features.
The zones of damage are limited to an area in the subcutaneous space at a depth of 3 mm to 5 mm deep. The reason that ULthera appears to be more effective than most procedures is because the SMAS that needs to be targeted for structural tightening is between 4-5 mm deep in the skin. This is the same structure that is tightened during a surgical facelift proceuduyre.
