As we get older, time and gravity inevitably take their toll on skin. The good news is that you can firm the skin on your face and neck with a non-invasive procedure. Ultherapy is safe and can be used on almost any part of the face to lift and rejuvenate, creating smooth lines while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
Ultherapy is an FDA approved non-surgical modality to lift and tighten the skin. It works gently and gradually, making it the Gold Standard to use under the chin, on the neck, chest, and face, even in the eye area. This treatment uses ultrasound imaging to help determine where energy needs to be deposited to rejuvenate the skin.
Ultherapy is mostly painless. Patients will feel heating and tingling sensations but little to no discomfort. Most people can tolerate the procedure without any medication, though an oral pain reliever or numbing cream are available to ensure your comfort.
It takes time to see the full results from Ultherapy, but your skin may feel tighter immediately afterward. Most patients begin to notice improvement within two to three months after treatment, with results continuing to improve for up to six months.
While most patients only need one treatment, this depends on the severity of skin laxity, how the body responds to ultrasound energy, and how quick the body builds new collagen. Because the skin will continue to age, maintenance treatments are encouraged to keep you looking and feeling your best.
Most men and women are great candidates. If you’re 30 years or older and have sagging skin on your brows, eyelids, chin, neck, or chest, this treatment can be beneficial. Patients must have some remaining skin elasticity.
