What is Ultherapy?
- The only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the brow, neck, under the chin and decollete.
- Ultrasound procedure that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin deep within the skin.
- Corrects textural issues such as fine lines and crepey skin.
- Non-surgically lifts and tightens skin tissue with no downtime.
How it works?
As we age, the collagen in our skin weakens and elastin starts to break down, causing skin to become more lax. Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, Ultherapy works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively. Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin delivering focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin- to the same foundational layer typically addressed in a surgical facelift. The skin's response to this energy is to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen and elastin.
Can anyone have the treatment?
Surgical facelifts will always be a viable option, but there are many people who aren't ready for surgery and are looking for non-surgical options that product meaningful results on the brow, chin, neck and chest. A good candidate is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. During your consultation, we will review any special health conditions and medications you may be taking that would prevent you from being a good candidate.
How soon will you see results?
You will notice lifting and tightening of the skin over 2-3 months. Further improvements can even appear up to 6 months after an Ultherapy procedure.
Does it hurt?
There can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered, but we do provide oral medications to keep you comfortable.
How long does the treatment take?
Allow for about 2 hours total. Smaller areas may take less time.
Do I have to do anything special afterwards?
You can resume normal activities right away. Your skin may be a little red for a few hours after treatment and you may experience mild swelling and tenderness.
How long do the results last?
We recommend coming in a year or so after the procedure to determine if a "touch-up" treatment is needed.
