Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten aging skin without surgery or downtime.
Ultherapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment that counteracts the effects of time and gravity on your skin. Ultherapy uses the body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually lift skin on the eyebrow, neck, face, under the chin, and also smooth lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy is also the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging and the only non-invasive FDA cleared treatment that will actually lift the skin.
With the ultrasound imaging screen we can see the tissue and bone under your skin allowing us to choose the appropriate energy level. During the treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated.
A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment can take approximately 30 minutes.
Ultherapy requires zero downtime. Immediately after treatment you may appear flushed, but the redness should subside after a few hours. Some patients may experience slight bruising, swelling, tingling, or tenderness, but these side effects are temporary.
Less common post-procedural effects may include bruising or numbness on small areas of the skin.
After your Ultherapy treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the best results will be evident in 2-3 months but may continue to improve through the 6th month post treatment.
Most patients only need one treatment with results lasting 1 to 1.5 years. Patients who have a fair amount of skin laxity may benefit from an additional treatment. Repeat procedures produce long lasting results and will enhance your appearance.
“Advanced Dermatology addressed my pre-cancerous skin damage as discussed/advised and to my satisfaction. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness and care Dr. Ingraham takes to explain the condition, the solution, and the precaution measures I will need to take. I always feel I'm in expert hands here as a result. Advanced honors my appointments as scheduled and the staff always seem to appreciate my business. I highly recommend these guys.”
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Ingraham for four years for treatment of wrinkles and aging and her touch and technique with Botox injections (and other aging treatments) is first class.”
“I will never go to any other dermatologist! Dr. Duncan has taken care of me for about seven years now, and she is an incredible doctor. The best thing about her is that she is an expert on making you look refreshed and younger without any signs that you have had anything done. I get Botox and filler from Dr. Duncan, and no one can believe that I am 44, or for that matter that I have had any work done. Subtlety is her specialty! [She has] a keen eye for assessing your particular needs, without pushing unnecessary treatments or products. Advanced Dermatology takes pride in their work and it shows!”
