Sunlight, gravity, and everyday stress all contribute to the early aging of facial skin. Many women are either not interested in or not ready for a surgical facelift and look to alternatives that are less invasive such as Ultherapy. A safe, non-invasive procedure, Ultherapy is cleared by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to lift the skin under the chin, on the neck and the eyebrows as well as the lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ulthearapy transforms the skin through the power of ultrasound, which has been used for medical treatments for more than 50 years. Trained practitioners can see the deep foundational layer of skin tissue through the ultrasound and deliver the energy to the places where it will have the best effect.
Practitioners use the same imaging and therapeutic principles of ultrasound that are used on pregnant woman and joint pain, but it’s used in a different way to firm, lift and tone the skin. Small amounts of soft tissue below the surface of the skin are targeted with heat that makes the tissue contract, which will trigger your body to create new collagen. The uniqueness of Ultherapy is its ability to deliver the heat to the right place without damaging the surface of the skin.
When you have a consultation with our practitioner, you can ask about the different measures they use before treatment. Some patients even have one side of their face done first, so they can see the results clearly in a mirror when they compare the two sides.
Ultherapy uses only ultrasound to stimulate collagen. There are no foreign substances used, and the noticeable change in your face is natural not radical. The treatment results in tighter, better-fitting skin without surgery. You can have treatment in our office and go back to your normal activities. There is no downtime. The procedure usually takes from 60 – 90 minutes, but this depends on the size of the area being treated.
The people who see the best results from Ultherapy are the ones who have skin with some laxity. Usually people in their thirties or older are good candidates for Ulthearapy. However, some younger people like to use it to prolong the necessity for cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy is a safe, FDA-cleared procedure that will effectively remove wrinkles, lines and loose skin on your neck, under your chin and eyebrows and on your décolletage.
