Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure that tightens skin on the neck, chin, and near the eyebrows. Also, it will improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. This treatment uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally. That means no surgery or downtime! Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brows to chest!
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound has been used in medicine for more than 50 years.
So far, Ultherapy was found effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide!
This procedure relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. Also, it incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging. Then, providers are able to see the layers of tissues they’re treating. As a result, treatment energy is delivered to the best location.
How it works
Builds New Collagen
The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery— without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
No Toxins or Needles
Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin. Therefore, it delivers the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin. As a result, it jumpstarts the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
No Downtime, Natural Results.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment. But the real results appear over 2−3 months* as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. Although Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven, non-invasive alternative for people who are not ready for surgery. Also, it can be a great option for patients whom wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
What to expect
Before Your Treatment
First, you’ll want to schedule a one-on-one consultation with our medical team. During this session, we will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.
Once you book an Ultherapy® procedure, you won’t need to follow any special preparations or skincare regimens in advance of the treatment.
To enhance your comfort, your practitioner may recommend that you take an over-the-counter or prescribed medication before the treatment.
During Your Treatment
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, we will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, we’ll use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to see deep within the skin to determine the best place to focus the treatment energy. Lastly, we’ll deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During delivery, you’ll feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths. This lets you know that the collagen-building process has been started.
Comfort levels can vary from person to person. However, the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure usually takes 60 to 90 minutes. Whereas, a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
After Your Treatment
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin may appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Although, some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch. However, these are mild and temporary side effects.
Some other less common side effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which we will go over before the procedure.
