ULTHERA: Cleared to lift skin on the face, neck and under the chin area, Ulthera is also a great choice to diminish lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, particularly timely for showing some skin in summer. Frans-Cuber explains that it uses deep ultrasound for heat energy that penetrates into the muscle and epidermis, that can make it uncomfortable, but it’s manageable with a little pain medication.
