U l t h e r a p y - The Non-invasive Lift
Does your face, brows, neck or decolletage need a lift?
Ultherapy uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally-without surgery or downtime!
Ultherapy is a non-invasive ultrasound treatment that stimulates the growth of new collagen. This results in a gradual tightening and actual lift of the skin over time.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow.
Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!
Clinical studies with Ultherapy have revealed, after just one treatment, a consistent lifting of the brow. As you notice less eyelid sagging or hooding of the eye, you will also notice that your face has a more open and refreshed look, having dropped years of aging from your facial features.
A typical treatment of Ultherapy can last an hour and has virtually no down time. Over the following 60 to 90 days, you will notice increased toning, tightening and lifting of the skin in the targeted areas, but patients have also reported results in other areas of the face and neck. The skin along the jaw line, on the cheeks, and under the chin can be gently shifted back into position in order to create a more defined jawline and more youthful overall contour, without the cost or recovery time of facelift surgery!
Ultherapy builds new collagen to tone, tighten and lift the skin, enhancing the vitality of the skin. This occurs gradually over the weeks and months that follow treatment. There may be slight blushing or redness for up to 2 hours following treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight bruising, which resolves within a couple of weeks following treatment. It is anticipated that an annual maintenance treatment may be desired to help keep pace with the aging process.
Frequently asked questions
What is unique about this procedure?
Ultherapy is the only treatment that can specifically target the deep foundation
below the skin that is addressed in cosmetic surgery without cutting or disrupting
the surface of the skin. It is also the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging,
which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during treatment and
ensure the energy is delivered precisely to where it will be most effective.
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 jumpstarts a repair
process that strengthens your existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
Is Ultherapy surgery?
No. Ultherapy addresses the skin and the support layer below it, but it doesn.t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Can Ultherapy replace a face lift?
Ultherapy is an “uplift” not a “facelift.” While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is a viable option for those not ready for a facelift or those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has “relaxed” to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. A lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for surgery, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
What problem areas does Ultherapy target? What kind of results do you get?
Ultherapy addresses skin that is mild to moderately loose or lax. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall
Patients have reported firmer, more toned skin in others areas of the face and neck as well.
How long until I see results?
Patients may enjoy some initial effect but the ultimate lifting and toning will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is renewed and replaced with new, stronger collagen. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to 6 months following a procedure.
How long do results last?
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen and results can last 2 years or more following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Yearly touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process.
Is Ultherapy painful?
Comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, but there can be some discomfort while the energy is being delivered. This is temporary and a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated.We will be sure to consult with you prior to your treatment to make your experience as pleasant as possible. Patients typically leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come!
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, but these are mild and temporary in nature. There is always the possibility for other less common post-procedural effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
