What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a new and unique treatment that can tighten and lift the skin around your neck, chin, brows, and minimize wrinkles on your chest. This treatment can take loose and sagging skin around certain areas and tighten it, allowing you to look thinner and younger.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to penetrate deep layers of the skin and muscle, heating the tissue. When the tissue is heated, it stimulates elastin and collagen production, which tones, lifts, and tightens skin that is sagging. You can enjoy firmer and younger looking skin without the need for surgery or major procedures.
Areas That Can Be Treated:
- The jowls
- The cheeks
- The neck area
- Décolletage (chest area)
- Around the eyes
- Upper and lower eyelids
- The forehead
If you are sick of sagging skin but do not want to go through the process of plastic surgery, Ultherapy is a great choice! This unique treatment can help tighten your skin in these troublesome areas to give you a more youthful look. Ultherapy can target and treat crow’s feet, lowered brow lines, and loose skin around the face, neck and chest.
This treatment is quick, and depending on the area being treated and there is little to no pain involved. Some patients are more comfortable when they take some Ibuprofen an hour before the procedure. While one treatment may help you see results, more treatments may be needed for you to reach the results you want. The full effects of the treatment will be noticed between four and six months.
After the treatment, the treated areas may be red for a few hours. You may also experience tenderness and swelling in the treated areas for a few days after the procedure. However, there is no down-time for the treatment. While you may not see instant results, you will begin to notice changes over time, allowing for a more natural transformation.
This is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that can help diminish some of your biggest insecurities. The results of this treatment and how long they last depend on the individual, but you should notice a difference in the treated area.
If you want to look your best, but do not want a surgical facelift, Ultherapy is a great choice. While Ultherapy will not substitute a facelift, it can provide benefits that can help you look and feel better.
