Ultherapy® is an innovative, non-surgical and non-invasive technology that uses the energy of focused high-power ultrasound, which aims to heat skin tissue at different depths, triggering a natural healing response leading to the formation of new collagen.
It improves elasticity and reduces sagging skin on the face, neck and décolleté, in order to achieve the desired lifting effect.
The Dr Marta Beauty Clinic was the first clinic in Portugal to acquire this treatment, and so far it is the only one that offers its patients the Ultherapy® treatment.
How it works?
Unlike laser and radiofrequency treatments that act on the most superficial layer of the skin (penetrating the skin from the outside in), Ultherapy® acts on the deepest and most structural tissues of the skin in which the regenerative and healing process occurs, as well as facial musculature level, working from the inside out.
Ultherapy® has three transducers with variable depths – 1.5mm, 3.0mm and 4.5mm – for different areas of the face, neck and décolleté, offering a more effective result. Each shot causes an increase in the temperature in the skin tissue up to 70 ºC, creating points of retraction that cause small lesions that form a scar in the deeper layers of the skin, promoting the production in a greater number of supporting fibers.
Ultherapy® also has a patented tissue visualization technology up to 8mm deep (DeepSEE®), which allows the doctor who performs the treatment to visualize the tissue layers being treated, ensuring that this energy is being emitted safe and where it will be most beneficial for treatment.
