WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure to lift and tighten the skin on the neck, jawline and around the eyes. It is also the only FDA-approved device proven to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the chest and décolleté area.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Ultherapy® uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally – without surgery. The procedure works by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the SMAS (the deep layer of muscle typically addressed in a surgical facelift), stimulating collagen production by without harming the surrounding tissues, and promoting a noticeable lifting and tightening effect. Just one non-invasive Ultherapy® treatment helps counteract the effects of time, gravity and sun exposure without downtime.
WHO IS IT FOR?
An ideal candidate for Ultherapy® has mild to moderate skin laxity, which might manifest in drooping eyebrows, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines on the chest. While Ultherapy® won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it is a clinically-proven, non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery, as well as patients who wish to extend the lifespan of a surgical procedure.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes – ultrasound has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years, while Ultherapy® has been safely and effectively used in over 350,000 treatments worldwide.
IS IT PAINFUL?
The sensation of Ultherapy is commonly described as a dull ache; however, painkillers and pain-distraction devices can be prescribed if needed.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
The area treated may ache for the following few days, but there is little in the way of redness or swelling, and typically no bruising.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the most dramatic results appear over 2 to 3 months as new collagen is stimulated, and the skin regains its former smoothness and tone.
