What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is an advanced new treatment that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten skin naturally, without surgery, injections, or downtime.
What makes Ultherapy® unique?
Ultherapy® is currently the only non-invasive procedure that has been approved by the FDA to lift and tighten skin on the neck and throat area, under the chin, and on the eyebrows, and to eliminate lines and wrinkles in the décolleté area or upper chest region. Ultherapy® eliminates fatty deposits and smoothes lines and wrinkles from the eyebrows all the way to the chest!
How does Ultherapy® improve the condition of the skin?
Ultherapy® harnesses the power of ultrasound energy to rejuvenate the brow, chin, neck and chest area. Ultrasound technology has been safely used on patients throughout the medical field for decades, and Ultherapy® has demonstrated its safety and efficacy in clinical studies. Over half a million patients have tried Ultherapy® around the world, with amazing natural looking results. Ultherapy® increases the body’s natural production of collagen through the use of ultrasound energy. The use of traditional ultrasound imaging during the procedure also allows our specialists to actually see the layers of tissue as they treat them, ensuring precise delivery to the areas where it will yield the most improvement.
How does Ultherapy® compare to other treatments?
Ultherapy® achieves similar results to laser treatments without affecting the surface layer of the skin. Ultherapy® delivers the precise amount of ultrasound energy to the precise layers of skin, using temperatures required to break down fat cells and stimulate tightening of the skin. This energy triggers the body’s natural production of collagen, contributing to the production of fresh, new skin cells.
Is there any downtime after Ultherapy®?
There is no downtime after Ultherapy® treatments, and you may resume normal activities immediately after your procedure. Your skin may initially look somewhat flushed, but this redness will subside naturally in a few hours. You may experience some swelling, stinging, or tenderness to the touch, but these symptoms typically last only a few hours.
What type of results are possible with Ultherapy®?
It is possible to see noticeable results immediately after treatment, but the real benefits of this treatment appear gradually over two to three months’ time, as increased collagen production gradually and naturally lifts and tightens skin on the neck, throat, chin and brow, as well as the décolleté area or upper chest. While Ultherapy® won’t produce the same dramatic results as a surgical procedure such as a facelift, it provides an effective non-invasive option for those who don’t want or need surgery, or anyone wishing to extend or enhance the results of cosmetic surgery.
How many Ultherapy® treatments will I need?
Ultherapy® delivers dramatic permanent results after only a single treatment session.
