Are you suffering from the effects of aging with loose skin appearing around your chin, eyebrows, or neck? Thousands of people are benefiting from a non-surgical ultrasound treatment called Ultherapy® that can counter the effects of time and gravity in these areas. In addition to offering remarkable results, this treatment does not require any surgery or downtime whatsoever.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure using safe ultrasound energy to tighten and lift your skin in a natural way. The treatment works to trigger the stimulation of your body’s own collagen production. It involves the delivery of ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface without disrupting or damaging the epidermis. You may benefit from this treatment if you are dealing with saggy and tired eyes, sagging cheeks, an aging jawline, excess skin under your chin, or loose skin around your face or neck.
Advantages of Ultherapy®
Unlike surgery, radiofrequency, or lasers, this treatment bypasses your skin’s surface to transmit the ideal amount of ultrasound energy that is needed for skin rejuvenation. The ultrasound energy delivered stimulates your body’s natural healing response to jump start the skin regeneration process leading to the production of new collagen.
We begin your Ultherapy® treatment by thoroughly cleaning your skin and locating promising areas for treatment. After applying the ultrasound gel to the treatment area, we move the treatment applicator onto the surface of your skin. We then look deep within your skin using ultrasound imaging to decide where to direct the treatment energy.
The next step of the process is the delivery of focused ultrasound energy under the surface of your skin to trigger a healing and rejuvenating response. While the energy is being delivered, you may notice small amounts of energy being transmitted into your skin. This means that the process of forming new collagen has already begun.
The length of treatment depends upon your own unique situation. Larger areas that require treatment will take longer. Neck and face Ultherapy® treatments normally take around one hour, while the chest normally completes treatment in about half an hour.
What happens after my procedure?
No downtime is involved after an Ultherapy® procedure. You can resume your normal daily activities immediately without any special precautions. Your skin may temporarily look a bit red after the treatment, but this will fade within a few hours.
