SKINLIFE: Galderma Canada’s Top Clinic

NON-SURGICAL LIFTING & SKIN TIGHTENING – ULTHERAPY®

 

SKINLIFE is Galderma Canada’s Top Clinic for the last 3 consecutive years. Achieving the top volume status is a remarkable feat on its own merit. Medical research confirms that when doctors and institutions perform procedures more frequently, they do so with greater skill and improved safety. While the case volume is certainly not the only factor of consideration when selecting one’s aesthetic, SKINLIFE believes this may be an indicator of the level of skills, knowledge, and artistry behind each treatment at our clinic. Our treatments are grounded firmly on in-depth anatomical knowledge and extensive clinical experience.  As one of Vancouver’s original Ultherapy® providers since 2013, SKINLIFE has provided many hundreds of Ultherapy face lifting and skin tightening treatments. SKINLIFE’s approach to Ultherapy® is personalized to suit each patient’s need to lift and tighten sagging skin. The sophisticated technology helps to reverse signs of aging through a naturally lifted contour and improved firmness of the skin in the Ultherapy® treated area(s).  Ulthera® is a sophisticated aesthetic device that requires a high level of knowledge and experience. Therefore Ulthera® should only be operated by a physician-level provider and should not be operated by a technician or a nurse. At SKINLIFE, all our Ulthrea treatment is directly performed by our surgical director.

WHAT IS ULTHERAPY?

Ultherapy® is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck and chest that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin. The FDA-cleared, Health Canada approved device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin – including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin. In some ways, Ultherapy® is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure that expectant mothers may receive. A smooth hand-piece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. With the visualized image of the treatment areas, that same hand-piece is also used to deliver tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin. For facial procedures, this is the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift.

HOW DOES ULTHERAPY WORK?

Ultherapy® is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure for the face, neck and chest that utilizes focused ultrasound energy to trigger the body’s natural collagen production process. When the time-tested ultrasound waves are transmitted to the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical face lift, new and more elastic collagen is stimulated to build over time from within the deep, structural skin tissues. The result is a gradual tightening and lifting – or even shifting of the skin back to its more youthful position and form-fitting shape against the currents of aging.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Is the Ultherapy® painful?

To allow for a treatment efficacy as high as can be achieved with Ultherapy®, local anesthetic injections are admnistered before the treatment begins. Additionally, to relieve any discomfort that may occur during the injection(s), use of analgesic laughing gas and/or topical anesthetic cream is also available. As a result, SKINLIFE is able to provide Ultherapy® at its maximum performance  while keeping the treatment experience very comfortable.

  • Is there any downtime following Ultherapy®?

Most patients are able to resume regular daily routine. The recovery process, if any, may include minor swelling from the local anesthetic injection(s), which usually resolves within 3-4 days following the procedure.

  • When can I see the result?

The results of Ultherapy® begin to unfold gradually over the course of 2-3 months following the procedure, depending on each patient’s natural rate of collagen production. Thanks to the progressive appearance of treatment results, the anti-aging effects visualize without a sudden radical change or the stiffness of expression such as that following a surgical facial lifting procedure.

 

  • How long does the obtained result last?

While the results of Ultherapy® may last up to 2 years, depending on patient lifestyle, duration of one’s body’s conservation of collagen, as well as the natural rate of aging, repeat procedure(s) may be recommended once a year for the maintenance of long-term treatment benefits.
