ULTHERAPY

Ultherapy uses the safe energy of  high intensity focused ultrasound to perform what other devices can not - the photo above is just one of SKinTEGRITY's  patients who wanted to define her jaw line. The dramatic result, which was achieved in just one session, is due to the fact that ULTHERAPY treats at the deepest levels available in a non invasive device. While other technologies go in to a maximum depth of 3 MM, the Ultherapy goes in 4.5 MM and treats the SMAS level of the muscle (superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System) - this is the layer of tissue that plastic surgeons manipulate during plastic surgery.  It then treats the skin at the 3MM depth and the 1.5 MM depth to give a full spectrum lift and tightening on all levels.


Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! Ultrasound imaging allows the treatment specialist to see where the treatment energy will be delivered.


Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.


Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.


The Treatment

  • For maximum results it is advisable that some patients take an over the counter pain medication or muscle relaxant 1 hour prior to the treatment. Individuals have different levels of pain tolerance and some are able to experience the treatment with no medication while others experience discomfort that using a pain reliever will diminish. This will allow the treatment specialist to give a thorough treatment at the most advantageous levels in order to achieve the desired result.
  • The skin will be covered with a cool ultrasound gel over the area to be treated.
  • The treatment time is approx 45-90 minutes depending on the area to be treated
  • The Ultherapy computer program outlines which depths of penetration can be used on what areas of the skin as it is never advisable to over-treat as this can cause serious side effects that can result in bruising or loss of volume in areas where volume loss is not advisable. The treatment specialists at SKinTEGRITY are thoroughly trained to ensure your safety.
  • The first treatment tip used is the 4.5 MM which tightens the SMAS level. The second is the 3 MM tip and then to finish, the 1 MM tip is used. All 3 have a different sensation.
  • The skin is then cleaned of the ultrasound gel and the patient is free to lie quietly for several minutes to adjust to the new sensation of tightness in the skin tissues.
  • The tissues may feel sore like they have done a "work out" with their facial muscles. This is the proof of the tightening that the treatment provides and it may last for several days. There is also the potential in some cases for bruising which will diminish in several days.
  • Patients can resume normal daily activities directly after treatment.
  • There are no visible side effects unless there is bruising which is not typical.

The Result

  • Many patients see a visible difference immediately after their treatment.
  • The tightening will continue improve over the next 2-3 months as the collagen and elastin are stimulated during the treatment  and, just like planting a seed in the ground, it takes time for the end result to reach the surface.
  • Results last for approx 3 years as the aging process will continue and the skin will naturally still lose its firmness. The healthier the skin at treatment time, the longer the results last.

Cost

  • The Ultherapy prices are dependent on the area treated and range from $450 to $1800


Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze features two applicators: DiamondPolar™ for smaller treatment areas and OctiPolar™ for larger areas. Both of these lightweight, ergonomically designed applicators are powered by our proprietary (MP)2 technology, combining Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields.

MULTI-POLAR RADIO FREQUENCY

Multi-Polar RF uses a complex algorithm to deliver more homogeneous heating to multiple tissue depths, allowing for faster buildup of heat and easier maintenance of the therapeutic temperature. With no heat spikes, there is also no need for topical cooling agents. This can result in greater efficacy and enhanced patient safety.

PULSED ELECTRO MAGNETIC FIELDS

The effect of Multi-Polar RF is enhanced by Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF), a non-thermal technology emitted through the applicator’s electrodes. PEMF has been proven effective in triggering regenerative processes in the skin and has been used in conventional medicine for decades.

THE SYNERGISTIC EFFECT OF MULTI-POLAR RF & PEMF

(MP)2 synergistically increases collagen production through two independent mechanisms, Multi-Polar RF (thermal) and PEMF (non-thermal). The RF directly stimulates fibroblasts, while PEMF induces fibroblast proliferation through the release of the growth factor FGF-2. Together, they work to increase collagen synthesis. (MP)2 is proven and effective in remodeling of collagen, which tightens skin, and the creation of new capillaries, which renews blood supply.

VENUS FREEZE SPECIALIZED EYE TREATMENT

Lasers typically can not be used in the intra-occular space due to the risk of swelling and, as the tissue is so delicate, the risk of damage is high.   However, many men and women suffer from dark circles under the eye and puffy bags of fluid that are obvious under the delicate skin surrounding the eye. The Venus Freeze specialized eye treatment has solved this problem. Due to the MP2 technology and its ability to heal and promote the drainage of the excess fluid,  it is completely safe and extremely effective for use in this fragile area. Take years off your appearance and look refreshed instead of tired and run down.  Although optimum results are achieved after a series of treatments, most see a difference after the very first session.
