Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure used for neck tightening, as well as tightening on other areas of the face. This cosmetic treatment is innovative in that it uses ultrasound technology to perform what previously could only be done with surgery. Ultherapy does not require any surgery; it simply uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen and elastin within the skin. This process can product dramatic improvement in your appearance, by not only tightening lax skin, but improving the appearance and contouring of your face and neck with a single treatment.
What Areas Can Ultherapy Treat?
We have had amazing results on loose or sagging neck skin in terms of creating a tighter and more contoured look. Patients have also requested Ultherapy to correct sagging brows, jowls, and to eradicate that ‘crepey’ effect that sometimes skin can take on as we get older. Truly a non-surgical facelift, this procedure has helped hundreds of patients be able to look into a mirror with the utmost confidence. Just one treatment and the results are apparent. No more sagging neck skin; it even helps to get rid of that otherwise stubborn “double chin.”
How Does Ultherapy Tighten the Skin?
Ultherapy works by emitting an ultrasound energy, similar to the energy that is used to perform an ultrasound during pregnancy! In this case, the ultrasound energy is targeting deeper layers of the skin, in order to stimulate production of new, healthy collagen and elastin. The result of this process is smoother, tighter and healthier looking skin without surgery. Tightening of the skin is achieved by mobilizing your own skin cells to rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.
While Ultherapy can be performed on many areas of the face and neck, the most commonly treated areas are the jowls (loose skin along the jawline), sagging brows, and ‘crepey’ skin on the neck. The treatment is so effective for tightening, that many people have begun to refer to it as a non-surgical facelift. A single treatment of Ultherapy can address many problem areas on the face. It can tighten and rejuvenate a lax, aging neck. Ultherapy can also improve the appearance of a ‘double chin’ when performed on the neck. It can also lift your brows to improve the tired appearance of heavy eyelids, for a more youthful appearance.
Results of Ultherapy
The results of Ultherapy are seen gradually in the months following the treated. Since Ultherapy works by stimulating collagen and elastin in the skin with ultrasound energy, we must allow time for the collagen and elastin to be produced. As new collagen and elastin are formed within the skin, the skin will appear tighter and smoother. Dramatic results are first seen at approximately two to three months following the treatment. The improvement continues to progress for up to six months following the initial treatment.
What to Expect During Ultherapy
Ultherapy tightening procedure is an in-office procedure, which takes approximately one hour. Upon arriving for your Ultherapy visit, we will first discuss your goals for treatment and create a treatment plan together. Some people only wish to concentrate on tightening their neck, while others wish to have tightening and rejuvenation on their face and neck. Each treatment is uniquely tailored to the individual being treated. Immediately following Ultherapy, patients return to their work or normal activities. Ultherapy is an effective method of neck tightening and facial rejuvenation for those who don’t need or want to explore plastic surgery.
Are There Any Side Effects with Ultherapy?
No. A simple and painless in-office procedure. You can resume normal activities immediately following your session. The results of Ultherapy are seen gradually in the months following your treatment. As it is all about stimulating collagen growth, it does take some time for the new collagen and elastin to be produced. Usually you will see incredible results in just 2-3 months following treatment. And the improvement continues for up to six months after.
