Ultherapy is a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift. It’s used to counteract signs of aging like skin sagging and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest as well as drooping of the brow area. The FDA-cleared technology stimulates collagen production, which should create a more youthful look overall.

The popularity of nonsurgical skin tightening procedures such as Ultherapy has been consistently growing over the past several years, with an 11.6 percent increase from 2015 to 2016.

How does ULTHERAPY Work?

Your provider, usually a physician or laser technician, will clean the areas they plan to work on of any oil or residue and apply an ultrasound gel. The Ultherapy device is placed against the skin, and your provider will use an ultrasound viewer to adjust the device to the appropriate settings. Ultrasound energy is then delivered to the targeted areas. You might experience quick, intermittent feelings of heat and tingling during treatment. Pain medication can be administered to address any discomfort. At the end of the procedure, the applicator is removed.

A single procedure can last up to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment. Ultherapy treatment on the chest takes about 30 minutes compared to the face and neck areas which can take 60 to 90 minutes.

Key benefits of ULTHERAPY

  • Think of Ultherapy as a non-surgical face lift – this aesthetic treatment uses ultrasound energy to rejuvenate,lift, and tighten your skin by stimulating collagen production.

    Patients who opt for Ultherapy can look forward to the following benefits:

    • Stimulates collagen production

    Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy into your skin, triggering the body’s natural response and jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces new collagen. What results is skin that is tighter and smoother, as well as a reduction in fine line and wrinkles.

    • Natural skin tightening and lifting effects

    Multiple clinical trials and scientific studies have shown that one’s skin becomes noticeably tighter and firmer after Ultherapy, as the new collagen produced as a result of the treatment works to lift and firm skin on the neck, chin, and brow.

    • Non-invasive

    Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver precise amounts of focused ultrasound energy deep into the skin. No toxins or needles are ever used during this process, ensuring that no trauma is caused to the outer layers of your skin.

    • Minimal to no downtime

    Given the non-invasive nature of Ultherapy, there is minimal downtime after an Ultherapy procedure. Patients can wear makeup and resume normal activities immediately after their Ultherapy treatment.

    • Safety assured

    Ultherapy is the only US FDA-approved procedure to lift skin on the chin, neck and eyebrows, as well as improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

    Ultherapy also incorporates ultrasound imaging technology, similar to the technologies used in ultrasound pregnancy scans. This allows doctors to see the tissue layers that they are targeting, ensuring that ultrasound energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

    Furthermore, patients obtain such anti-aging results naturally, without having to bear the risks and potential healing complications commonly associated with a surgical facelift.
