Ultherapy

Ultherapy, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is a non-invasive laser procedure that stimulates the production of collagen and improves a patient’s skin firmness. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), nearly 32,000 non-surgical skin tightening procedures were performed in Brazil in 2015. Rio de Janeiro is responsible for a significant amount of Brazil’s plastic surgery operations. Dr. Alexandre Charão has a proven high success rate among patients and works hard to understand each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals.

How Ultherapy Works

Just one Ultherapy session eliminates most signs of aging, sun exposure, and stress. By targeting the Superficial Aponeurotic Muscle System (SMAS), the treatment produces a lifting effect to enhance skin firmness and resilience. Additionally, the Ulthera device used during Ultherapy incorporates refined micro-focused ultrasound technology to activate collagen production. To achieve this, the Ultherapy laser targets various facial tissue levels, including the deep dermis and epidermis. Ultherapy is commonly requested by patients who do not want surgery. However, the treatment can be used to complement other plastic surgery procedures like a facelift.

Your Initial Consultation

BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

As you are researching Ultherapy procedures, it is important for you to define your expectations. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various options which will work for your goals and current situation. To help give Dr. Alexandre Charão a clear idea of your desired results, you should provide a young photo of your face.

Ideal Candidates

Ultherapy is recommended to any patient who wants to improve skin firmness of the face, neck, and eyelids. It even works on a patient’s buttocks, knees, belly, and arms. The treatment is ideal for patients aged 40-60 years old with mild to moderate sagging. Ultherapy stops and reverses the aging process by preventing further facial contour loss. However, younger patients can receive Ultherapy as preventative care.

Results & Recovery

The painless procedure takes about 1 hour to complete. During treatment, patients usually feel small amounts of energy when collagen is stimulated. After receiving Ultherapy treatment, the skin may be slightly red. This swelling will disappear in a few hours. Most patients resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients see noticeable results in the face and neck after 1 week. The production of collagen will continue for 6 months which is when a patient can expect to see their full transformation.

Total Cost and Before & After Photos

Congratulations, if you have read this far, then you are really committed to receiving an Ultherapy procedure. Your next step should be to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Alexandre Charão. During this 1 hour meeting, he will disclose further details, including total cost. Most international patients can save 50-70% by traveling to Brazil for treatment.
