The Ultherapy treatment is the only non-invasive procedure U.S. FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow.
It is also used to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!
Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by us plastic surgeons during cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Specifically, in the face, we are targeting the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) layer.
This energy initiates the body’s natural response to stimulate growth of the fresh new collagen and strengthen weak collagen.
Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting and tightening skin on the face and neck and smoothening skin on the chest.
Unlike Lasers, radio-frequency and other technologies, Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and precision. Also unique to Ultherapy is the use of ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring energy is delivered safely and to where it will be most beneficial.
While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s an exciting alternative for patients who do not wish to undergo surgery or for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
