As we age, our skin is affected by several factors including genetics, environmental conditions, and weight fluctuations. These factors contribute to our skin beginning to loosen and sag which, on the face, can appear as wrinkles, drooping skin and jowls. Ultherapy is an excellent option for treating mild to moderate signs of aging in the face for natural-looking results without surgery.
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally. Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s foundational layer, the same layer of tissue addressed with a surgical facelift but without disturbing the surface of the skin.
The effectiveness of this procedure is due to the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows our aestheticians to see the layers of tissue they are targeting during the treatment, focusing the energy where it will be most beneficial. The ultrasound energy triggers a natural response under the skin which initiates collagen production, which gradually strengthens the skin from within and results in a visible lift. Ultherapy can lift and tone the skin for a natural, long-lasting result without downtime.
FDA-approved Ultherapy is non-invasive and does not require general anesthesia. Some minor redness may occur at the treatment sites, but this generally fades within a few hours. Some patients see tightening of the skin immediately after treatment, but maximum results will appear over the next two to three months as new collagen growth occurs and works to lift and tighten the skin. Most patients only require one treatment, but due to individual factors, some patients benefit from additional treatment.
Ultherapy is an ideal solution for individuals with mild to moderate sagging in the face and neck that want to rejuvenate their appearance but may not be ready to undergo a surgical procedure such as a facelift. Ultherapy is not a good option for patients with significant sagging skin as it cannot produce the same dramatic results achieved with a surgical facelift. However, Ultherapy can be an excellent option for patients post-surgery that are looking to enhance or extend the results of their cosmetic surgery!
