Ultherapy® is an effective cosmetic procedure that has the potential to rejuvenate your skin. It’s viewed as a non-surgical treatment for skin tightening to provide a youthful, fresher look.
Also known as a non-surgical facelift, this procedure can lift and tighten the skin on your neck, face and chin. It’s particularly effective for the skin underneath the chin and along the jawline. We can use it to target skin laxity on the neck and face.
The treatment process involves the use of ultrasound technology. It’s capable of penetrating much deeper than many of the laser-based alternatives. Ultherapy® reaches deep enough to stimulate your skin to produce new collagen, which is the layer of skin that is treated during plastic surgery.
What Is It?
Ultherapy® has been approved by the FDA, and it’s a non-invasive ultrasound treatment. It helps you fight back against the unsightly effects caused by gravity and aging. A typical treatment session can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
The procedure uses your body’s regenerative response to reliably, gradually and gently restore your skin. By stimulating your body’s response to produce collagen, the treatment is able to improve your appearance and reduce the effects of aging.
Ultherapy® can be used to treat the deep foundational layer of your face, neck or brows, and it serves as an excellent alternative for someone who doesn’t feel comfortable getting a facelift. If you find yourself wearing almost nothing but turtlenecks because of the skin on your neck, Ultherapy® could be a beneficial treatment option to consider.
How Ultherapy® Works
During the procedure, the ultrasound applicator is gently pressed against the skin. The ultrasound applicator makes it possible to see into your skin and examine the underlying tissue. Next, the applicator will be used to apply low levels of heat into your skin. A specific amount of heat is applied to a specific layer of skin.
The treatment process doesn’t harm the surface of your skin and causes your body to produce collagen. The initial response of your skin is to contract slightly, and after this response, it will produce new collagen.
Over time, the skin will begin to tighten, which will produce positive effects for your appearance. You should be able to get noticeable results from a single treatment session.
