How it works

Details

Some rejuvenation treatments utilize ultrasound to kickstart collagen production. These procedures help smooth out wrinkles and tighten skin on the face, neck, and chest. There are office-based and home devices available that utilize ultrasound energy.

JeNu Plus is an at-home ultrasonic device that can improve the absorption of skincare products. The device emits 365,000 waves of energy every second onto the skin. Before using the appliance, patients should apply skin care products to the face as usual. They should spread the conducting gel onto the plates of the device before massaging it onto the skin. Although praised by many, it does not have the same effect as its professional counterparts.

Ultherapy is a similar but more powerful alternative to JeNu Plus. It is a non-invasive, anti-aging treatment that heats the underlying layers of skin, stimulating the production of collagen, and tightens tissue bands. The results are a tighter skin with fewer wrinkles. While it is suitable for all skin types and tones, the treatment is ideal for patients in their 30s or 40s with mild to moderately lax skin. Each session lasts 30-90 minutes. The skin is cleaned before a topical numbing cream is applied. After numbing, the device is placed onto the skin and set to a particular setting. The ultrasound penetrates the tissue and heats it to a temperature of 140°F. Patients may feel a slight tingling sensation and some warmth during the procedure. After the procedure, the skin may be tender and red for the next couple of days. Some results will be noticeable within a few days, and others are visible over the next few months as collagen is continually produced. The final results can last up to 1-2 years.
