Stimulate collagen deep within the skin!
Ultherapy is a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chest, chin and brow. It can also address sagging jowls and necklines that have typically required surgery in the past. Ultherapy can work in as little as one treatment. The Ultherapy treatment uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen deep within the skin with virtually no downtime. You can get back to work or even the gym on the same day.
WHAT IS Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
HOW IT WORKS
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months. The procedure takes just an hour or less for most patients, and there is no downtime.
Patients treated with Ultherapy can still see the effects of treatment after a year’s time following the procedure, but of course, your skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
Yes. The procedure has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies, and over 100,000 treatments have been performed safely worldwide. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
What Does Collagen Do?
How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of collagen? Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. The thermal effect essentially jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
Does It Hurt?
You may experience some discomfort during the relatively short treatment. We can take measures to make your experience as pain-free as possible. Most people tolerate the procedure well and leave our office excited about their new look! Please inquire during your consultation about medications that may be an option prior to your treatment to minimize your discomfort.
Are There Any Side Effects?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch. These are mild and temporary in nature.
How Many Treatments Does It Take?
The majority of patients only need one treatment, but some may benefit from more than one treatment. This depends on each individual and how much laxity they have as well as their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen-building process.
