UltraLift

A Non-invasive Procedure That Lifts and Tightens your Skin

UltraLift® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. NewBeauty, your leading authority on today’s latest beauty trends, along with a panel of medical aesthetic experts1, has recognized UltraLift as the Gold Standard treatment for nonsurgical skin lifting and tightening. Having received the NewBeauty “Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener” award for six consecutive years, ask your provider more about UltraLift.

WHAT IS ULTRALIFT

FDA-cleared UltraLift

UltraLift uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime.

Face refers to the treatment of two or more of the FDA-cleared areas of the neck, brow, and under the chin.

UltraLift treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin

The Non-invasive Lift

UltraLift is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, UltraLift can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest!

Ultrasound imaging allows doctors to see where the treatment energy will be delivered.

Focused Ultrasound. No Surgery.

UltraLift harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and UltraLift has been established as effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide.

UltraLift relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

Plasma Pen Fibroblast Treatment

 What exactly is a Plasma or Fibroblast treatment?

The Plasma Pen is the world's most advanced, non-invasive, skin lifting, skin tightening and rejuvenation device used to treat wrinkles, skin tags, and sagging skin. This treatment can be used for a number of procedures to dramatically enhance the looks without the need for costly and invasive surgery.

The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen. Who doesn’t want more Collagen?? Collagen keeps the skin taut and supple. This method can be used to treat multiple areas of concern without damaging the surrounding tissue.

How does it work?

The Plasma Pen harnesses the power of plasma. Plasma is the fourth state of matter along with Solid, Liquid, and Gas. The principle involves the ionization of gases from the atmospheric air to create a micro-electrical discharge or ARC. The ARC never touches the skin but causes a micro-injury to the skin’s epidermal layer whilst simultaneously heating and disrupting the deeper dermal structure via thermal conductions. This is more commonly known as Fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in the body that produce collagen.

What does it do?

This anti-aging treatment is based on a series of minute dots adjacent to the tension lines on the skin. This process triggers an immediate tightening, lifting, and remodeling of the skin. This technique is used to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.

What does Plasma do for you?

Plasma heats and disrupts all the way down to your dermal layer of skin to create micro-trauma to the tissue. The surface is lightly ablated with a “fanning” technique, at which time the technician creates the little dots in the tissue. Those dots are tiny blood clots with a small scab over the top, which means that unlike with CO2, the tissue is completed closed. This prevents the likelihood of infection risks, making it safer even than Microneedling.

This damage especially targets the “fibroblasts” in the inner part of your dermis. I know, lots of biology here… but keep reading!

Why do you care about Fibroblasts?

Do you remember when you were younger and your face was supple and rounder than it is now (regardless of your age)?

That all comes from this beautiful collagen called type I. It’s a collagen you have TONS of in your youth but is slowly replaced by type III collagen over time. Picture type I collagen as well organized, supple and hearty, while your type III is loose, disorganized and smooshy.

When you stimulate fibroblasts, they get to work creating white blood cells to repair the tissue damage on the surface and recreate lots of nice, healthy collagen type I, transforming you back to your youthful self! They won’t do this work on their own. Most of them lay dormant until you have a wound that needs repair, so the plasma gas actually creates their activity.

It’s in this way that a Fibroblast treatment reverses aging. It also:

  • Forms fresh new surface skin

  • Increases elastin production

  • Removes cellular trash

  • Releases growth factors

  • Actually INCREASES the thickness of the skin

How does it outperform CO2 or Ablative Lasers?

It is a much more predictable result that ablative lasers, and it doesn’t create unnecessary damage. Fibroblast services truly targets the tissue that needs repair and takes care of it. They are also far less risky because the tissue is closed immediately so there’s less chance of infection or permanent damage.

It also has:

  • Less risk of hyperpigmentation than ablative lasers

  • Significantly less downtime

  • Equal or greater results

  • Shorter window of sun sensitivity than many lasers

  • No blood, no open wounds

  • Rapid healing time

  • Average result holds 3 years

Who is a candidate?

Fitzpatrick skin types I-III are safe candidates for the Plasma Pen. Darker skin tones (African American, African, Latin, Native American, Indian, Middle Eastern, Asian ancestry and people of mixed ethnicities) may not be good candidates for Plasma Pen.

Risks and Downtime

As with ANY procedure there are risks, and with almost every aesthetic procedure there is a little “downtime.” Downtime can be subjective, every person has a different perspective of what “looks bad” and what is “uncomfortable.”

Risk include swelling, slight bruising, skin discoloration and scarring.

You will have small scabbing dots that will fall off in 5-7 days.

Your downtime may include:

  • Redness, swelling and scabbing in the treatment area

  • Average of 8 days downtime on the face and neck areas

  • Average of 10 to 14 days on the body, depending on the area being treated and the intensity of the treatment

  • Swelling usually begins the day following your treatment, and peaks around day 3

  • After day 3, swelling subsides and scabs form.

  • Scabs normally begin to fall off around day 6 and 7 (for face and neck)

Please be aware that the days indicated are simply guidelines for average healing time. Healing time and results may be negatively compromised by not following the aftercare protocol: no drinking alcohol, no smoking, and no picking/scrubbing. If your health is compromised in any way, this can also extend your healing time and negatively affect your results.

Who is the treatment NOT safe for?

I have to say, if you’re not properly screened for this service, that’s how you may end up with permanent damage from the treatment. There are many reasons that a person should not have a Fibroblast or Plasma Pen service. Because of this, it is CRITICAL that you see a trained professional. Anyone using a knock off version may not know who its safe to treat and who isn’t safe.

Folks who should NOT have the service:

  • No treatment on a port wine stain or birthmark

  • Breastfeeding

  • If you are a Fitzpatrick Skin Type V or VI

  • Hemophiliacs

  • Hepatitis/HIV/AIDS

  • If you hyperpigment/hypopigment easily

  • Lupus

  • Epileptics

  • If you’ve ever had Gold Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Pregnancy

  • Hypertrophic or Keloid Scarring occurs

  • No eye treatments if you have Retinal Detachment

  • Vitilago

  • Currently using Accutane, Cortosteroids, Blood Thinners, Antabuse

Folks who CAN have the service but may heal slower:

  • Folks who are anemic

  • If you bruise/bleed easily

  • If you’ve had cataracts

  • You’ve had a corneal abrasion

  • Diabetics will heal slower but can have the procedure

  • If you get cold sores you will want to pre-treat with medication

  • If you have kidney or liver disease you’ll heal slower

  • Same with mitral valve prolapse

  • You shouldn’t treat an area with active eczema or psoriasis

Folks who can have the treatment with a time delay:

  • Recent Botox or Filler treatments should wait 21 days after to have Plasma Pen

  • There’s a 3 month wait after Bleph surgery or Facelifts/Browlifts

  • If you’ve had chemo or radiation there is a 5 week wait

  • Wait 12 weeks after eye laser surgery

  • If you’ve had Shingles, wait 6 months for treatment

  • There’s a 6 month wait after Accutane use

What is the recovery process for the Plasma Pen?

Please note: the recovery process for any individual can vary, so this is just a general guideline. For proper expectations, make sure you discuss this with your personal technician.

Day Of

Plasma Pen/Fibroblast can be a mildly uncomfortable service. There is quite a bit of numbing done in a proper process (just creams put on the skin, no needles!) You will arrive and have the numbing cream applied, then lightly ablated. This first part is very simple and not that uncomfortable.

Then a second numbing will be applied to the area before the dots are created. Most people feel a little during the dot process but it isn’t bad at all. This is done quite rapidly and is only felt as each dot is created.

There is no discomfort after the procedure is over. The area does feel tight but that is all.

Days 1-3

The dots are tiny little scabs on the area. They don’t hurt at all but can itch a little bit as they heal. Using the products provided to your post treatment can really help with that.

The scabs begin to lift between day 2-3 and they darken up a bit. If you are a picker, do whatever it takes to keep yourself from picking the scabs off!!

Other than mild itching and tightness, there is no other discomfort.

Days 4-5

Somewhere in this window of time the tiny scabs will fall off, leaving tiny pink dots behind. The mild itching is mostly gone now and once the scabs fall off, you can wear full makeup again.

Days 5 and further

The tissue surface continues to heal but the real remodeling of collagen is just beginning. It takes 12 weeks for full healing and result! By day 7, the average person will see a noticeable difference in their wrinkling. Certain health issues and medicines can delay results in some clients.

How long does it last?

Plasma Pen results last between 2-5 years with an average result lasting 3 years.
