Many patients are now considering Ultherapy® in OKC. What is this treatment all about? If you haven’t heard of this treatment before you may be wondering that. Below we will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about Ultherapy® in OKC.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment for improving the appearance of the neck, chin, and brow. This treatment uses ultrasound to lift, tighten and tone sagging skin around the neck, under the chin, and on the face. It targets the deep foundation underneath the skin without cutting the tissues or muscles of the skin.
How Does Ultherapy® Work?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives the skin its healthy and youthful appearance. As we continue to age, the amount of this natural protein also continues to decrease. The treatment machine, therefore, emits ultrasound energy which stimulates the production of new collagen. The creation of this natural protein lifts and tones the skin, and muscles.
Is Ultherapy® the Same as a Surgical Facelift?
Ultherapy® is different from a surgical facelift. The former lifts the neck, chin, and brows without the use of surgical procedures. It is ideal for people who want to improve the appearance of their neck, chin, and face but are not ready for surgery.
Who is a Good Candidate For This Treatment?
A good candidate for Ultherapy® in OKC is any individual who is self-conscious about the appearance of their neck, chin, and brows. Typically, individuals in their thirties with sagging or loose skin around the neck, chin, and face.
How Many Treatment Sessions Do I Need?
The majority of patients need one treatment to improve the appearance of their neck, chin, and brows. However, some patients require more than one treatment session to benefit from Ultherapy®.
How Long Do Results Typically Last?
You will experience noticeable results immediately after the treatment. However, full results and recovery will be expected several months after treatment.
Is This Treatment Right For Me?
It is right for you if you are in good health and would like to improve the appearance of your neck and face. During your initial consultation, our medical team will conduct a physical examination and look at your medical history to determine whether Ultherapy® is right for you.
