a device called Ulthera. If we look at the purpose of the process; Focused
ultrasonic waves interfere with the surface of the skin with a sound wave, and
the sound wave is transformed into heat energy at a depth of 3 or 4.5 mm under
the skin, and the collagen is renewed there by heating that area to 65-70
degrees. This technology provides tightening of the skin thanks to the
local heat it creates. Tissue elements in protein structure, especially
collagen, are tightened by the effect of heat.
How is the application done?
First of all, gel is applied to the skin surface and shots are started under the skin with
the device. Depth can be adjusted on the screen depending on the sagging
level of the skin, and the screen shows how deep you have gone down, and what
height you are in the bone. At a depth of 4.5 mm, it is exactly the case. The
shots are made from the bottom up, from the inside of the face to the outside,
during which time tiny holes are drilled into the membrane on the bone. Meanwhile,
the patient feels a very slight increase in temperature at the puncture sites,
but there is no rash, crusting, bleeding, bruising on the surface. Because
while the device drills holes on the one hand, it also cauterizes that area. Applying
visually from the screen in this way also provides comfort for the doctor.
How long does the process take?
The duration of the procedure varies according to the application area. It usually
takes between 1 and 1.5 hours.
Which areas is it applied to?
It can be applied to the upper face, lower face, lip area, jowl neck, eye contour and
décolleté areas. Another advantage of Ulthera is that it can be applied to
areas such as around the eyes and lips. It has a special title for trading
these regions. It is also an alternative for those who want to get rid of
lip wrinkles without filling the lips.
When are the effects seen?
Since there is a thermal effect during the process, a tightening and recovery is seen
immediately when it is done. There is an increase in collagen synthesis
every 30 days. The tiny holes opened, while healing, one pulls the other,
as if you put natural fibrotic threads under the skin, pulling the face
upwards, creating a lifting effect.
How often should it be repeated?
It is beneficial to repeat it every 1.5-2 years depending on the quality of the skin.
