Ultherapy® is the first and only treatment FDA-cleared to non-invasively lift loose or sagging skin of the eyebrow, neck, and chin, and to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage or chest.
It utilizes ultrasound energy to lift and tighten loose skin by stimulating collagen and by targeting the skin’s deeper supporting structures.
The outer layers of skin are not harmed or damaged in any way, so there’s no downtime. Ultherapy is often hailed as the non – surgical alternative to a facelift.
What to Expect:
Treatment times may vary from 45 to 90 minutes depending on the area(s) being treated.
The treatment may feel like tiny rubber band snaps. Most patients experience minimal pain during Ultherapy, but comfort level varies by individual. For those who experience significant discomfort, it may be eased with a painkiller prescribed by your physician.
The skin may be red or flushed. There maybe some swelling or tenderness, which will subside quickly. There may be some improvement in the firmness of your skin after the first few weeks, but over the next few months the results will improve as collagen builds.
Visible results can be seen as early as a few months. Most patients continue to build new collagen bundles over the course of a year, resulting in a gradual tightening of the skin. Your skin will be noticeably smoother, tighter and firmer.
