Conditions - Face Lifting
THE NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses focused ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, under the chin, and even the décolletage.
The result? Tighter, better-fitting skin, even on the neck. It's the lift without surgery!
BENEFITS OF ULTHERAPY:
Tighter, younger looking skin
Natural Looking Results
WHAT IS ULTHERAPY?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment approved by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow.
Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The production of new collagen occurs over time, so results can become more apparent over three to six months.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen after a year’s time following the procedure, but skin continues to age. Future touch-up treatments can help keep pace with the aging process, which varies by individual.
ARE THE TREATMENTS WITH ULTHERAPY PAINFUL?
A recent software upgrade called “Ultherapy Amplify” now affords a more comfortable procedure. While comfort thresholds vary from patient to patient, most patients now report that the procedure is quite tolerable.
If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. This sensation is temporary and is a positive signal that the collagen-building process has been initiated. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible [customize based on your practice’s comfort management protocol (e.g. premedication, cooling fans)], and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH A ULTHERA TREATMENT?
Our doctor will first perform a thorough consultation and assess your hands to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. We will also advise you on the procedure, what to expect, possible risks or complications. You will be required to sign a consent form should you wish to proceed with the treatment.
If you wish to proceed with treatment, we first apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment.
The procedure takes only about an hour for most patients, and there is no downtime. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows us to actually see the layers of tissue we target during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME OR SIDE EFFECTS AFTER ULTHERAPY?
There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so following the treatment, and a small percentage of patients may have slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR ULTHERAPY?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm.
A lowered eyebrow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, for instance, is often the first sign of "maturing" skin. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, physically or financially. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
HOW DOES ULTHERAPY STIMULATE CREATION OF COLLAGEN?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to generate a thermal affect under the skin. The thermal affect essentially jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens existing collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
