Celebrities typically keep their beauty secrets to themselves, but Ultherapy is one treatment even A-listers are happy to admit to having tried and love. In fact, Ultherapy has been called one of Hollywood’s worst-kept secrets due to the fact that it has been name-dropped by many celebrities who claim to be avid fans of this anti-ageing treatment. Jennifer Aniston, Christie Brinkley, Vanessa Williams, and Paulina Porizkova are just a few of the stars who use Ultherapy as their go-to alternative to old-school facelifts.
But why exactly do they love it? Here are seven reasons Ultherapy has gained many celebrity fans:
1. It is non-invasive and convenient
A major concern that most people encounter when considering skin lifting and tightening treatments is just how invasive they are or can be. While this is not really a big issue for some people, a celebrity’s biggest asset (aside from their talent) is their physical attributes and they certainly would not want to sabotage that in any way.
Because of this, Ultherapy proves to be the preferred non-invasive treatment that anyone – even the world’s top celebrities – can go for as it can be easily be done in under 90 minutes (without needles or scalpels), which is why it is aptly called the “lunchtime lift”!
2. It is safe
Ultherapy is the first treatment to receive the US FDA clearance for a non-invasive aesthetic lift. On top of that, it also uses ultrasound technology, which has been safely used in the medical field since the 1950s.
This effective, non-invasive and US FDA-cleared treatment delivers ultrasound energy deep within the skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin production and jumpstart the skin tightening process – which both treats and targets skin sagginess as well as fine lines and wrinkles.
Again, since it is a non-invasive method, no products are injected or applied to the skin, and the treatment itself uses real-time visualisation, which allows the practitioner or provider to accurately target the skin.
3. Minimal to zero downtime
Some of us lead busy lives – but certainly not as busy as a celebrity who constantly needs to be on screen, on the red carpet, at events or awards shows. Yes, the treatment itself does take 60 to 90 minutes, but those who undergo this treatment can immediately resume their daily activities right after.
For celebrities, this means that there is no need to rest or stay out of the public eye for days. In some cases, there may be slight reddening of the treated areas, but this can be easily covered with makeup.
4. The results last and look even better with time
With Ultherapy, one may instantly notice some improvements to the skin. Then, over the next few weeks or months, one will see the years literally melt away as collagen and elastin production improves – that is the jumpstart it got from the Ultherapy treatment.
Improvements may continue showing for up to a year, which means that patients (and celebrities) would only return for a follow-up annually or even biannually, depending on age and lifestyle.
Celebrity Christie Brinkley also loves the effects of Ultherapy, “I love the idea of having my body create its own collagen and elastin the way it used to.”
5. Treatments can be customised
Thanks to the real-time visualisation technology that Ultherapy utilises, practitioners are able to plan a personalised treatment for patients as they can see and target the areas that will yield the best results.
The neck, cheek, chin, brows and chest usually give away a person’s real age, and Ultherapy can effectively target these areas to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagginess or loose skin. This way, both patients and celebrities can really opt for a natural-looking brow lift, a defined jawline or a decolletage refresh without going through the trouble of worrying about other parts of their face.
Ultherapy does work as a standalone treatment, but it can also be used in combination with other anti-ageing treatments – which your doctor or aesthetician can advise on.
