The aging process can take its toll on the skin, resulting in loose, sagging skin that can give you a worn appearance. This issue occurs because the collagen and elastin that typically support the underlying skin structure decrease as we age. With less support underneath, the appearance of the skin can be dramatically affected as well. Ultherapy is a non-surgical approach to skin tightening that reverses this process and restores youthful vitality and firmness to the skin.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a revolutionary device that uses targeted ultrasound energy to stimulate the body’s own collagen production and gradually tighten and firm the skin. The ultrasound technology works at the specific depth required for anti-aging benefits, without disturbing surrounding skin and tissue. The procedure provides superb skin firming results without incisions, anesthesia or downtime.
What does it treat?
Ultherapy can tighten loose, sagging skin in the following areas:
- Under the chin, eliminating the double chin appearance
- Around the cheeks, adding fullness and definition to the midface
- On the forehead, lifting the brow and upper eyelid to a refreshed position
- Around the midface, which in turn enhances the look of the nose, mouth and jawline
What is the procedure like?
The Ultherapy procedure is non-invasive and involves relatively little discomfort. A handheld device delivers the ultrasound therapy beneath the skin’s surface without injuring the skin or causing trauma to surrounding tissue. A treatment session may last 60-90 minutes, depending on the number and size of the treatment areas. No anesthesia is needed for the procedure and patients may return to their daily activities as soon as treatment is over.
What kind of results can I expect?
Results of Ultherapy will begin to appear over time as collagen is produced to support the underlying skin structure. Within 3-6 months, patients will begin to see the full effects of the treatment. While many patients will attain their desired results after just one treatment sessions, others may need a series of treatments to achieve full results. Because Ultherapy treatments work with the body’s own processes, results are both natural and long lasting.
