My patients know that when I introduce a procedure or product in my practice, it’s one that actually works. I exhaustively research everything I offer by reading the scientific studies and collaborating with colleagues around the country. In fact, I’ve been accused of adding procedures when I need them for my own “upkeep and maintenance”! And I won’t deny that accusation. Enter Ultherapy!
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound to actually lift loose skin — on the brow, on the neck and under the chin — without any downtime. Ultherapy is the Only Procedure FDA-Cleared for a Non-invasive Neck, Brow and Under-Chin Lift
Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment, to ensure that the energy is being delivered to where it will be most optimal.
We can specifically target the deep foundation below the skin – the one typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. That means after a 60- to 90-minute non-invasive treatment, you’ll be able to return to your everyday life without interruptions…and, without hiding behind those “post-treatment” glasses or scarves.
Ultherapy refreshes your collagen by jumpstarting a repair process. It relies on the body’s own regenerative process to stimulate the natural creation of new collagen and elastin. This results in an actual lift of skin overtime. In fact, the ultimate lifting takes place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is replaced with new, stronger collagen. And, as this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can even appear up to 6 months following a procedure! And you can maintain the lift by having treatments every 2 years.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical option for people with mild to moderate skin laxity – those who want some lifting for skin that has lost elasticity, but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. It’s also a great option for those who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Yesterday, I had an Ultherapy procedure on my lower face to lift marionette lines and jowls. Today, my cheeks are a little puffy and slightly tender and I have two tiny bruises on my left cheek, but with a little makeup, no one can tell.
I’m thrilled to have a new tool for helping my patients look and feel better–and for most, put the face lift off for years. Come in for a consultation and let’s talk about options for you.
