Sun exposure, gravity, and the passage of time can all cause your skin tissues to sag. You may be noticing one or more issues like wrinkles on your chest, sagging eyebrows, loose neck skin, a double chin, or a “turkey wattle.” These common signs of facial aging can make you look older than you feel. In the past, the only reliable treatment for these problems was surgery. Now Ultherapy® lets you turn back time without surgery.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin, and brow. It also improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. Ultherapy is also an excellent way to maintain and prolong the results of a facelift, neck lift or eyelid surgery. It also is a great treatment to use in conjunction with a PDO suture lift.
Ultherapy® is a state-of-the-art non-surgical treatment that the FDA has approved for use on the décolletage, neck, chin area, and brow. As the skin tissues of the region are tightened, the appearance of age and fatigue fade, replaced by a look of firmness, beauty, and youth.
Ultherapy® is gentle on the tissues and completely non-invasive. No scalpels or injections involved! Ultherapy® increases your body’s production of collagen and elastin protein. You will enjoy completely natural-looking enhancement provided by your own body.
During an Ultherapy® treatment, an application of micro-focused ultrasound energy waves is delivered to the tissues. The surface of the skin isn’t damaged in any way. The energy harmlessly passes through the external skin (the epidermis) and penetrates down into the dermis and the fat/connective tissue layers. It’s able to reach all the way down to the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System, or the SMAS layer.
The ultrasound energy is calibrated to the perfect temperature to encourage the creation of collagen protein in the skin tissues. This formation of new collagen is referred to as neocollagenesis. No surface treatment or laser can reach this deep layer of tissue. Ultherapy® is the only non-surgical treatment available that provides proven, predictable results
Because Ultherapy® is a non-invasive treatment, no recovery time is required after the procedure. You are free to immediately return to work and your daily activities.
Right after your treatment, you will see positive changes in the targeted areas. Since your collagen production rate will have increased, the quality of the results will increase concurrently over time. Collagen levels will continue to rise over the course of the following two to three months, and your skin will get tighter, smoother, and firmer.
Because Ultherapy® increases your body’s production of collagen and elastin, the results don’t “wear off”. However, the effects of the treatment age as your body ages. Touch-up treatments are available to keep the treated areas looking beautiful over time.
To find out if this treatment is right for you, it’s best to set up a consultation. A skin assessment will be performed. After a thorough discussion of your aesthetic goals, your doctor will recommend the best course of action.
