Aging is inevitable, and we would all like to stop the clock and stall the effects of aging; unfortunately, that is not a possibility. Many people think that the only option to address the superficial signs of aging is surgery. A facelift is great for correcting wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, but it also involves downtime for recovery. Considering we all live in a busy world, most people do not have the time to take off for recovery, which is why many are opting for non-surgical options. Ultherapy® is the latest non-surgical treatment performed to tighten and tone skin with only one session, and it can be done in the same amount of time it would take to go on a lunch break.
The Benefits of Ultherapy®
- Eliminates sagging skin
- Produces new collagen in the skin
- Provides long-lasting and natural-looking results
- Addresses wrinkles, fine lines, and creases
How It Works
Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved treatment that uses “focused” ultrasound waves to lift, tighten, and tone the skin. The procedure is performed by placing an applicator on top of the skin to heat the tissue below the surface, creating new collagen. Ultherapy® can address early signs of facial aging, such as laxity in the chin and neck areas and fine lines around the mouth, forehead, and eyes.
Depending on the patient’s goals and problem areas, Ultherapy® can be completed in 60 to 90 minutes. This procedure improves the skin from the inside out, meaning it does not disrupt or damage the skin’s surface.
After the procedure, minor bruising and swelling may be present, but with little to no downtime required, patients can go home directly following their procedure.
Within a few days of treatment, patients can expect a more youthful appearance and overall smoother and tighter skin. Patients can also expect a significant improvement in tone and firmness while seeing continual improvements over the next three months.
