Ultherapy To Tone, Tighten, and Lift
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow, as well as improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Using safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally, Ultherapy is commonly used to address sagging of the eyelids, brow, cheeks, chin and jawline. It can also improve marionette lines and folds and a downturned mouth. The whole face may be treated for an overall tighter, more toned appearance or treatment can be focused toward specific areas. Ultherapy is an ideal solution for individuals with mild to moderate sagging in the face and neck but may not be ready to undergo a surgical procedure such as a facelift.
The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the superficial musculoaponeurotic system, the same foundational layer of tissue that is addressed with a surgical facelift. During the treatment the ultrasound applicator is slowly moved over the treatment area, delivering small, controlled amounts of energy to the skin and soft tissue. The ultrasound energy bypasses the surface of the skin, targeting the deep layers of tissue, triggering a natural response under the skin which initiates the regenerative process responsible for producing new collagen and gradually strengthening the skin from within. Ultherapy is able to lift and tone the skin for a natural, long-lasting result.
Ultherapy is completely non-invasive and does not require general anesthesia. Some minor redness may occur at the treatment sites, but this generally fades within a few hours. Some patients see tightening of the skin immediately after treatment, but maximum results will appear over the next two to three months as new collagen growth occurs and works to lift and tighten the skin.
