To lift and tighten the face without the need for an invasive surgery, Ultherapy might be right for you! Ultherapy can improve the most common signs of aging with no anesthesia, needles, or incisions involved.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is cleared by the FDA to naturally lift and tighten the skin while improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to heat deep layers of skin and promotes new collagen growth. Collagen is a natural substance that gives support and structure to the skin.
Who Should Consider Ultherapy?
Both men and women who suffer from common signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles and mild sagging can benefit from Ultherapy. Ultherapy is effective in transforming the brows, chin, neck, and chest area. Those who have mild to moderate signs of aging who do not want to undergo a surgical procedure like a facelift are excellent candidates for Ultherapy. Patients who have already undergone a surgical procedure can also benefit from treatment with Ultherapy to maintain their results.
What Happens During Treatment?
During an Ultherapy treatment, your aesthetician will use a handheld device to deliver controlled radio frequency energy to the target areas. You can feel the energy being delivered, but most patients describe the process as fairly comfortable. Treatment can take between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the size of your treatment area.
Results and Recovery
After treatment with Ultherapy, there will be no required downtime and patients can resume their normal activities. Common side effects from the treatment include a flushed appearance, slight swelling, tingling, and redness. These are very mild and should resolve within a few days.
After treatment with Ultherapy, the collagen production process will begin and continue over the course of the next several months. After two months, you can begin to see the results of your treatment with tighter, firmer, and more youthful looking skin. Most patients see satisfying results after just one treatment, but a second session can be done to optimize results or to maintain youthful looking skin.
