Ulthera Receives FDA Clearance for Eyebrow Lift

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on October 31, 2009

Men and women interested in getting an eyebrow lift no longer have to rely solely on plastic surgery to achieve results. An innovative device has recently been approved by the FDA for use by doctors, and clinical studies show that this eyebrow lift device has no adverse side effects and hardly any downtime. The Ulthera System is designed to deliver ultrasound energy deep into the dermis, treating the skin at a deep level. The energy waves help to firm, tighten and lift the skin tissue, and can produce noticeable results after just a single treatment.

According to the research studies backing the device, the DeepSEE technology used in this system allows the physicians to see and treat deep below the skin without a single incision. Ultrasound imaging is used to target different areas of the skin, and the device is safe enough to use around the delicate eye area. The highly focused and targeted ultrasound energy triggers the body’s natural healing response, triggering collagen growth and tightening and lifting the skin over time.

There is no anesthesia required, and the upper layers of the skin are left untouched. The patient will not feel any discomfort throughout the procedure, since the energy waves from the applicator deliver very small, controlled amounts of energy into the soft tissues of the skin. The medical professional delivering the treatment simply moves the applicator over each area of the face to deliver the energy waves deep into the skin’s surface.

The entire procedure takes only about 30 minutes, and some people will need to undergo a series of treatments in order to see desired results. The Ulthera device may be an attractive alternative for people who do not want to undergo facelift surgery or get a Threadlift to correct sagging skin around the eye area.
