The non-invasive Ultherapy procedure is U.S. FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, on the eyebrow and under the chin as well as to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest! It harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest.
The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s layer with no cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin delivering the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
There is really no downtime with this procedure. You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patient’s experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary. 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. While Ultherapy won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Just one non-invasive treatment helps counteract the effects of time, gravity and sun exposure without downtime. The first thing you will want to do is schedule a one-on-one consultation with one of our Ultherapy technicians. During this session, we will address your concerns, assess your skin and determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.
