Ultherapy Skin Tightening and Toning Vancouver

Ultherapy is the process of using ultrasound wavelength technology, the same kind used to view babies in pregnant women’s stomachs, to tighten and lift the skin with dramatic, long-lasting results. Ultherapy is popular across the globe, and is seen as the non-invasive alternative to the traditional face lift providing a dramatic lift without the use of scalpels. Ultherapy is a powerful tool for both face, neck, and even chest, using focused pulsing heat to stimulate new collagen growth. The full results take around 3 months to appear in the skin, and only require maintenance on an annual basis.
