SEEING IS REALLY BELIEVING
The Ulthera® system is a non-invasive device that allows clinicians to see precisely which layers of tissue that are treating.1-3 This visualisation is unique to Ultherapy® and ensures energy is safely delivered where it will be most beneficial.2,3
HOW IT WORKS
Real-time imaging allows clinicians to control exactly where energy will be deposited, and to avoid structures such as bone and blood vessels. This enables precise and consistent treatment delivery to targeted tissue layers to ensure safe and efficacious treatments.
WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU?
Precise, safe and efficient treatment of areas when Ultherapy® will be most beneficial.
Energy should never be delivered into bone if the bone is visible above the green treatment line as it may cause discomfort.
Treatment over a blood vessel can cause bruising and should be avoided.
2. TAILOR-MADE TREATMENT
Because everyone is unique, clinicians can easily map out a treatment plan targeting different depths of skin, depending on each individual’s skin anatomy. Factors include different fat layers between different patients will result in using a different transducer for different thickness.
