The skin is the largest organ of the body, so it makes sense that the health and appearance of your skin will have a direct impact on how you look and feel. Unfortunately, the mere passage of time can be an enemy to your skin as important substances like collagen and elastin that support the skin’s structure are depleted and the skin begins to look worn and aged.
Skin laxity develops, which leads to loose skin and the formation of facial creases. The laxity eventually extends to the jawline, forming jowls and marring your youthful facial profile. The good news is there are effective treatments today to reverse some of this damage, giving you your smooth sexy jawline back as well as a more youthful appearance overall. Some of the top choices are available at New Visage, allowing us to customize your procedure using the latest technology to achieve the best possible results.
Ultherapy is the latest in non-surgical skin tightening treatments, using revolutionary technology to restore your youthful look. Targeted ultrasound energy is the key behind Ultherapy’s success. This technology penetrates the skin’s surface to work in the deeper layers of the dermis without disrupting the outer layers. The result is dramatic, long-lasting skin tightening without the discomfort or downtime of surgical procedures.
Targeted ultrasound energy works underneath the skin’s surface to trigger the body’s own collagen and elastin production. These substances support the underlying skin structure, giving the skin its smooth, supple appearance. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, resulting in skin laxity and the formation of facial lines. By restoring these substances, we can effectively turn back the clock on the skin, giving it a supple, youthful look once again.
Benefits of Ultherapy
There are many potential benefits provided by an Ultherapy treatment:
- Non-invasive procedure does not require any type of anesthesia
- Treatment works beneath the skin’s surface without causing trauma to outer skin layers
- There is no downtime required after the procedure
- After Ultherapy, skin is noticeably tighter and firmer
- The results of Ultherapy appear over time after a single treatment session
- Ultherapy results tend to be both natural and long-lasting
Ultherapy is the only procedure approved by the FDA to provide a non-surgical skin lift in addition to its skin tightening benefits. While Ultherapy cannot replace a surgical facelift for all patients, it can address early signs of skin laxity that may postpone the need for a facelift for many years.
What does Ultherapy Treat?
Ultherapy is designed to treat skin laxity on delicate areas of the face and neck. Specific treatment areas include:
- Forehead: Ultherapy can effectively lift the brow to a higher position and open up tired eyes
- Cheeks: Ultherapy adds youthful definition and fullness to the midface
- Lower Face: Ultherapy efficiently reverses early jowling and creates smoother definition between the face and neck
- Neck: Ultherapy works here to smooth away horizontal creases on the neck and reduce the early signs of “turkey wattle”
- Décolletage: Ultherapy smooths away lines and wrinkling that often appear on the chest, making us look older than we feel
Ultherapy will smooth away fine lines and wrinkles while tightening and firming the skin. Areas like the jawline will see visible improvement in definition while the brow and midface will experience noticeable lift as well. Overall, your skin will appear smoother and more youthful – you will look like yourself, but an improved and younger version!
Ultherapy is performed in the New Visage med spa on an outpatient basis. No anesthesia is required prior to treatment and most patients describe the procedure as relatively comfortable. Small snapping sensations can be felt when the ultrasound energy penetrates the skin, which is momentary and lets you know the treatment is working properly.
The handheld applicator is used to deliver the ultrasound energy to the skin. Ultrasound imaging may also be used during the procedure to pinpoint the optimal place to deliver the ultrasound technology.
Most procedures take 60-90 minutes to complete, depending on how many areas we are treating and the size of the treatment areas. After the procedure, the skin may be slightly red. However, this side effect will subside in a matter of hours and patients are able to immediately apply makeup and return to daily activities once the treatment is over.
One Treatment, Stellar Results
Patients may see early results from their Ultherapy treatment immediately following the procedure. Skin may feel smoother and look a bit tighter. However, the full results of Ultherapy will become evident in the weeks and months following treatment, as the body’s own collagen and elastin production kick in. Most patients will see exceptional results within 2-3 months, which will last for many months or even years before another procedure is needed.
To ensure your best possible results from your Ultherapy treatment, make sure you select a provider that is experienced in this procedure. The staff at New Visage has been trained extensively in Ultherapy techniques and have already performed this procedure on hundreds of patients, giving you the experience necessary to ensure safe and successful results.
Is Ultherapy Right for Me?
Ultherapy is generally recommended for men and women that have experienced the early signs of aging, including skin laxity and the appearance of fine lines and facial creases. Specific areas like the brows or just under the chin can be of particular concern. If the patient has significant amounts of skin laxity, a surgical procedure may be recommended instead to ensure the patient’s expectations are met.
Common candidates for Ultherapy include patients in the middle years of life that want to ward off aging symptoms before they become too dramatic. Younger patients may also choose Ultherapy as a way of “getting ahead of the aging game” and postponing the need for surgical procedures.
