Ulthera a facelift innovation

Unlike laser, which penetrates the skin externally, Ultherapy does not touch the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deeper dermal layers, where collagen resides. Applying ultrasound technology, it works from the inside out to lift and tighten the skin without causing injury.

New application of ultrasound

Ultherapy uses the energy of the ultrasound commonly used in radiology and physical therapy. These sound waves generate heat, contracting and lifting the skin tissue without altering its surface.
Its modern and innovative intense multifocal ultrasound technologywas created as a noninvasive alternativefor tissue tightening.

Its multifocalize heat mechanism heats the tissues to an optimal temperature of between 65 ° and 70 ° C for a certain period of time, thus inducing a highly precise coagulative necrosis thanks to the visual ultrasound system that allows localization of heat from 1 mm (epidermis) to 4.5 mm (superficial muscular system of the face and neck)

The  Merz Clinic has incorporated state-of-the-art technology to guarantee the best results for its patients. Ultherapy, geared for men and women, is a very solid alternative to surgery with excellent results.

The latest addition to the Merz aesthetic medicine clinic in Ultherapy , the technology that allows you to forget about wrinkles and sagging of the face and neck, as well as the double chin of the latter. It is also effective against chest wrinkles, and is suitable for both men and women.

Ultherapy is a treatment that uses the Ulthera System , the only non-invasive device that allows specialists to see in detail the layers of tissue they are treating. This provides a higher level of precision when applying the treatment, as well as greater safety for the patient.

The results are not exactly the same as those that would be achieved by undergoing a cosmetic surgery operation, but it is a great alternative for patients who are not ready for surgery. In addition, the achievements vary depending on each patient and several factors

  • Skin quality: amount of wrinkles or sun damage.
  • The age, health, and lifestyle of the patient.

Ultherapy technology is perfect for removing wrinkles and sagging skin. With the passage of time and exposure to the sun, the skin is damaged in a way that is impossible to fix with the use of anti-aging creams. Ultherapy has several benefits for patients:

At  Merz clinic they  offer all the necessary information and, by making an appointment, you can learn about the Ultherapy system in greater depth.

How is it done?

The device works by means of a focused ultrasound system that applies hundreds of small thermal coagulation points in the basal layer of the epidermis (the deepest), to achieve the retraction and tightening of the skin of the face and neck, and to initiate the natural process of neocolagenesis (formation of new collagen in the skin itself). The ultrasound control allows visualizing the layer of skin treated at all times, determining the appropriate depth of shot and verifying the correct contact of the applicator head on the skin.

As it is a non-invasive treatment, the action procedure is effective and fast. It is performed in a single session , which usually lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, after which the patient can immediately lead a normal life , without the need for hospitalization. In addition, no prior preparation or a subsequent recovery period is necessary and, in general, there are no side effects, or these are mild and temporary: tingling, sensitivity to touch, a slight redness or swelling in the treated areas.
