Ultherapy® is a non-surgical, safe ultrasound treatment that works to fight the effects of gravity and time on your skin. It uses your body’s own natural regenerative responses in order to gradually and gently lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrows to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy® utilizes the technology of ultrasound that passes right through your skin in order to address your deep tissues without using surgery. This innovative procedure gradually tightens and lifts the tissues of the skin, counteracting the effects of both gravity and aging. Ultherapy® is special because it only takes one 30-90 minute session to begin stimulating your body’s own healing process to restore collagen and elasticity to your skin’s underlying tissues.
How Ultherapy® Works
Where lasers penetrate the patient’s skin from the outside to the inside, Ultherapy® bypasses the skin’s surface altogether and delivers specific targeted energy into the deeper tissues where vital collagen is found.
A regenerative response is naturally initiated by stimulating the skin’s deep, structural layers to encourage new collagen growth, which gradually tightens and lifts the skin. Results will become evident over the course of a few months and may keep improving for as long as six months following treatment.
Ultherapy® can deliver a wide variety of positive results for patients, including the following:
- Focused, non-invasive ultrasound that passes directly through the skin to treat deep tissues
- Tightens and tones the underlying tissues of the skin
- Adds increased volume to the skin’s surface, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Brightens and lifts the eyes and brows, achieving a brow lift without the need for surgery
- Contours both the jowls and neck
- Stimulates the production of new collagen growth for long-lasting results
Are You a Good Candidate for an Ultherapy® Procedure?
If your skin is beginning to appear tired and droopy, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy®. Sagging eyelids or a lowered eyebrow lines are typically the first visible signs of aging skin. Patients with loose skin under their chin or neck areas usually benefit significantly from Ultherapy®. During your consultation, our medical team will help you determine whether this treatment is right for you.
Although Ultherapy® won’t replicate the results of a surgical facelift, individuals who seek the results of a facelift but aren’t ready for extensive surgery may achieve the results they’re looking for with Ultherapy®.
After receiving Ultherapy®, patients can immediately return to their normal activities. The skin may initially appear somewhat flushed, but this will go away within a few hours. Some patients may also experience some mild swelling following the procedure for a few days or their skin may feel tender or tingly. These are normal, temporary side effects.
