Get Smoother, Beautiful Skin with Ultherapy by Ulthera
A non-surgical treatment offering the latest in skin rejuvenation
If you want younger-looking skin without the hassle and downtime of surgery, there is an effective minimally invasive procedure now available. Ultherapy® by Ulthera is an FDA-approved treatment using advanced ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. Consider Ultherapy® for lifting the neck, chin and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the upper chest.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Ultherapy® targets the same skin layer (SMAS layer) that is tightened during a surgical facelift but without the surgery. The treatment uses traditional ultrasound imaging to see the skin layers being treated. Its ultrasonic energy delivers heat deep into the skin’s layers, increasing the growth of collagen that gradually firms and smoothes the texture of the skin. The entire procedure takes between 30 to 90 minutes.
Throughout the treatment, you may feel energy delivered to stimulate the collagen-building process. The sensation is temporary and most patients claim that our technique makes the treatment comfortable.
After the treatment, you may resume normal activities immediately. There are no post-treatment restrictions or requirements and no major side effects. Some patients see redness that usually disappears after a few hours. Others may experience slight swelling, tenderness, or tingling which are mild and temporary.
While results may vary, you will notice changes over 2-3 months post-treatment. Results continue to improve over 3 to 6 months, lasting about 1 year.
Am I A Good Candidate?
Patients in their 30’s to 40’s who experience mild to moderate skin laxity on the face and neck are generally good candidates. If you are interested in learning more about Ultherapy®, schedule a consultation with our office today.
