What is Ultherapy®?
The first and only FDA-approved treatment for non-invasive skin lifting, Ultherapy® is designed to not only tighten and smooth skin on the eyebrow, neck and chin areas, it also smooths fine lines and wrinkles on the decolletage area.
Using time-tested ultrasound therapy, Ultherapy® bypasses the skin surface and stimulates the production of collagen – the protein in your skin responsible for strength and structure. Ultherapy® penetrates the inner layers of your skin at different depths, delivering the appropriate amount of ultrasound therapy to fully stimulate each layer.
What are the Benefits of Ultherapy®?
When treating the visible signs of aging, Ultherapy® offers several benefits, including:
- Smoother, tighter skin with no surgery or needles
- No downtime or recovery is necessary after treatment
- Results are achieved naturally, with no synthetic materials or chemicals
- The skin is improved gradually, subtly enhancing your features without looking like you have “had work done.”
- The ultrasound therapy stimulates the body’s natural regenerative process, creating sustainable change in your skin.
When Will I See Results?
While some patients see an immediate improvement in their skin, in most cases it takes two to three months for treated areas to produce new collagen to lift the skin and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy®?
If you have loose skin and visible signs of aging but do not want to undergo surgery, Ultherapy® may be the solution for you. Candidates for Ultherapy are generally in good health, have no contraindicating medical conditions, and have realistic expectations for treatment.
Ultherapy® creates a subtle improvement over time. Patients who want faster or more dramatic results may be advised to seek alternative treatment. During your consultation with our medical team, we will help you determine whether Ultherapy is right for you.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Immediately after treatment, the skin may appear flushed, but this is temporary and should subside in a few hours. Temporary bruising may also occur in some patients. Ultherapy has a proven safety record, but our medical team will discuss all possible risks with you during your consultation.
While most patients only need one treatment, more may be necessary depending on your skin laxity and desired results.
