About Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a nonsurgical skin tightening procedure that delivers ultrasound energy for a lifted, rejuvenated result without surgery or downtime. While the results may not be as dramatic as a surgical facelift, Ultherapy provides outstanding outcomes for patients who wish to treat wrinkles and lines on the eyebrows, neck, chin, and décolleté. With this procedure, ultrasound energy is used to penetrate layers of the skin that were previously only reached through cosmetic surgery. In addition, collagen is stimulated by the deliverance of ultrasound energy down into the skin’s foundational layer.

HOW IT WORKS

FDA-cleared Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and décolleté. The provider will be able to see deep within the skin to pinpoint the correct position for energy to be delivered. The ultrasound energy will be delivered underneath the surface of the skin stimulating the regenerative process that produces new collagen.

WHAT TO EXPECT

You will first have a consultation with an Ultherapy provider to determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. Your provider will apply an ultrasound gel to the skin and then place the smooth applicator. A patient can expect to feel energy being deposited into precise depths of the skin indicating that the collagen-building process is being initiated. Some people feel a prickling sensation; your provider may suggest taking a pain reliever prior to the Ultherapy procedure. After the procedure, a patient's skin may appear flushed. This will subside within a few hours to a few days. Patients have reported tenderness, swelling or a tingling feeling. These symptoms will resolve within a few days to a few weeks.

Ultherapy is a good option for patients who are not willing or able to have cosmetic surgery. This procedure is also ideal for people who are looking for a quick procedure with no downtime. It is significantly cheaper than a classic facelift. Patients with slight to moderately loose skin around the neck, a sagging or double chin, a sagging eyebrow line, or lines and wrinkles in the chest area might be good candidates for this procedure. For more information, we invite you to call our dermatology office and schedule a consultation with one of our experienced aestheticians.
