Ultherapy® is a great solution for people who want to tighten and lift the skin on the face, jowls, neck, and decolletage without surgery. This is a non-invasive procedure with no needles and no cutting! Ultherapy® has become the Gold Standard for those with mild to moderate signs of skin sagging who want to tone those problem areas and achieve a younger-looking appearance without surgery. An added bonus of Ultherapy® is that it gives natural-looking results with no downtime.
How does Ultherapy® work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound to deliver energy to the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the surface of the skin. The treatment stimulates the body to produce fresh, new collagen to replace what has broken down as a result of aging. Collagen is a natural protein that keeps the skin firm and toned. Following Ultherapy® treatment, results continue to be noticeable over two to three months as new collagen is produced. The treated skin areas will appear lifted and smoother, fine lines may be reduced, and jowls that are treated will appear more toned and contoured.
Will I feel any discomfort during treatment?
Patients will feel a moderate warming sensation during their procedure. Taking over-the-counter pain medication before treatment helps lessen discomfort. Some patients may choose to have IV sedation for a more comfortable experience.
Are there any restrictions following treatment?
Patients may resume their normal activities with no downtime or restrictions. Some people may experience a slight redness, tingling, or tenderness in the treated areas, but these symptoms are mild and very temporary.
Will I need more than one treatment?
Most people will need only one treatment to see noticeable differences in skin tone. Full results may take 4 to 6 weeks as the body produces new collagen during this time. Depending on the individual, their results may last one to two years before they may need any touch up treatments. Ultherapy® does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, but it’s the best nonsurgical alternative available.
