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.
The Ultherapy 1.5MM treatment is designed specifically to treat the delicate areas of around the eyes and lips as well as improve the skin’s tone and texture. This version uses the same ultrasound energy to trigger collagen production at a more superficial level of the skin.
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.
