Ultherapy is a type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, face, chin, neck, and chest. Results can last up to 18-24 months.
The only FDA-approved procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin-including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift-without disturbing the surface of the skin.
Now there’s a way to stand firm in the face of gravity-on your terms. With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change- just natural, noticeable results.
With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 60-90 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over 6 months. Much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).
Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of surgery, but has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.
In some ways, Ultherapy is just like an ultrasound imaging procedure that expectant mothers may receive. A smooth handpiece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen. This allows your practitioner to “see” the layers of collegen they will treat in your skin.
Your body’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting-or shifting-of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape.
