What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that goes deeper to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen and elastin, for natural-looking results without surgery or downtime. It uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin around the brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the desired area without any cutting or downtime.
Is Ultherapy right for me?
Ultherapy is the perfect solution for aging skin in men and women. A candidate for this procedure is someone with mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin loses firmness. it is typically used for lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
What can I expect the day I receive Ultherapy treatment?
After cleansing the skin, our practitioner will apply ultrasound gel and place the treatment applicator, and will proceed to use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging technology to see deep within the skin in order to determine optimal placement and will start delivering the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface starting the collagen building process. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and typically takes 30-90 minutes depending on the desired area.
After the Ultherapy treatment session is completed, the patient can return to their normal activities without any restrictions. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary.
When will I see results after Ultherapy treatment and how long will it last?
Typically, patients see improvement shortly after the treatment, but the results peak at around the 3 months mark as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin. Since Ultherapy helps stimulate your body’s own collagen production, the results wear off slowly as you age naturally.
