If you’ve been considering a facelift but are not quite ready for surgery, you should consider Ultherapy. This is the first and only cosmetic procedure that targets the same layers of skin tissue in the face that are targeted during a facelift — non-surgically.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy skin tightening treatment is making headlines for many good reasons. As people age, collagen and elastin production in the body naturally slows down, leading to a decrease in the elasticity of the skin. This decline in elasticity is also often accompanied by an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen is a protein found in and produced by the body that tones and firms the skin, helping it retain its youthful appearance.
Elastin is also found in and produced by the body, and it helps skin revert to a natural position after being pulled or stretched. It also helps skin return to a smoother appearance after facial expressions, such as raising the eyebrows, create temporary wrinkles.
People spend millions of dollars each year on the latest creams, lotions, serums, and other facial treatments in an attempt to combat the signs of aging. However, they find over and over again that their efforts just do not produce the results they’ve been looking for.
Ultherapy treatments use ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production without disturbing the surface of the skin. This treatment has been proven to be safe and effective at smoothing wrinkles and fine lines while recharging the body’s natural process of producing elastin and collagen.
An Ultherapy treatment can do all of this without the invasiveness or complications of surgery. In fact, with Ultherapy, there is little to no downtime required for recovery afterward. This revolutionary skin tightening treatment was first launched in 2016, and since then, over one million Ultherapy treatments have delivered exciting results.
How Do Ultherapy Skin Tightening Treatments Work?
Ultherapy refreshes, revitalizes, and rejuvenates skin cells by using micro-focused ultrasonic waves. It’s the only non-invasive skin tightening treatment that is FDA-cleared for lifting to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the chin, on the neck, and near the eyebrows.
Many people are bothered by the way their skin looks in the area near the neckline known as the décolletage. Ultherapy is an award-winning popular treatment with women and men for achieving a healthy, luminous, youthful appearance of the skin from the décolletage up to the skin on the forehead.
The visible outer layer of skin in the treatment area isn’t injured in any way with Ultherapy, unlike with some other more invasive procedures. The ultrasonic energy in Ultherapy is delivered at a controlled temperature and a predetermined depth to the skin’s deepest layers as it bypasses the outer layers of skin.
This also means that treatment can be customized according to each person. Customization ensures that effective and accurate delivery of the treatment will always provide the most benefits.
What Are Ultherapy Skin Tightening Treatments Like?
When you come to us for your treatment session, we’ll begin by making sure you’re comfortable. A member of our professional team will clean the skin in the area that will be treated with Ultherapy. A topical ultrasound gel will be applied to the treatment area, and a specialized handheld device will be gently placed against the skin.
This handheld device is controlled and adjusted as needed by our expert team member who will deliver your Ultherapy treatment. There is no anesthesia, no harsh chemicals or toxins, and no needles.
A treatment session usually takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. However, the exact amount of time your session will take will depend on how many regions of the neck or face you are targeting in the same session.
How Long Do Ultherapy Treatment Results Last?
Many factors determine how long results from this kind of treatment last; however, results can be visible for one to two years or more. These results vary according to each person’s specific skin and body, along with their skincare routines, the degree of elastin and collagen production slowdown, and other factors.
The boost in collagen and elastin that a treatment provides has been shown to be present even after a year of treatment.
For most patients, one treatment provides the results they had been looking to achieve. However, we recommend that patients schedule periodic touch-up treatments to keep the results consistent, fresh, and long-lasting.
Ultherapy results are gradually more noticeable with time, but some patients notice visible changes within a few hours of treatment. You can expect full results to be visible about two to three months post-treatment.
After a treatment session, many of our patients leave their Ultherapy treatment appointments and return right back to their normal daily activities and routines since there is no downtime required and no major recovery time needed.
Most people are good candidates for Ultherapy treatment. Those who are in their 30s or older are typically well-suited for the procedure. In addition, those who have undergone other skin treatments or surgeries and want to extend their results are often great candidates.
