Despite using skincare products and seeking aesthetic treatments to combat wrinkles and lines on the face, many patients overlook these same concerns on their necks.

In fact, dermatologists are beginning to note more and more patients that have youthful faces, but horizontal lines and sagging skin on the area between their chin and collar bone.

Fortunately, Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that can rebuild collagen and lift and firm the face and jawline in as little as one session.

Here’s how and why you should lift your neck with Ultherapy.

What Is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a revolutionary treatment that can improve skin quality and laxity without surgery or incisions. This FDA-approved device uses ultrasound technology to deliver energy waves deep into the skin and create microscopic injuries that activate a wound healing effect.

As a result, the body works to repair damage and stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy’s efficacy lies in its ability to increase collagen production, especially on the neck and underneath the chin. In fact, skin in these two areas is much thinner than the face and the rest of the body, making it more susceptible to drooping and developing wrinkles and a crepey texture.

Fortunately, Ultherapy is able to precisely target portions of the skin that need the most help and collagen boosting with its DeepSee technology. This feature allows providers to visualize the skin’s thickness, identify deficits, and focus ultrasound energy on these areas.

In addition, because the procedure works deep within the skin, the outermost layers do not show any signs of redness. Therefore, Ultherapy requires zero recovery or downtime.

What Are the Benefits of Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is a great option for men and women that want to eliminate jowls and rejuvenate skin without a facelift or neck lift. In a single treatment lasting 45 mins – 1.5 hours, Ultherapy can lift skin, correct wrinkles, and firm sagging cheeks, jawlines, and necks.

Most patients begin to notice improvement within two months, but it can take up to six months for the new collagen fibers to develop and smooth lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy effects can last up to 2 years, at which time, patients will require a follow-up treatment to maintain and restore results.
