Cosmetic - Skin Tightening

Ultherapy®

Time inevitably takes its toll on your skin—not only in the form of wrinkles and uneven color, but also in the resiliency of the skin and the contours of the face. What begins as an apple shape can end up as a pear shape as gravity, heredity, hormones, and environmental factors exert themselves.

Description
Ultherapy®, a revolutionary application of focused ultrasound technology for skin tightening and lifting, is non-surgical and non-invasive. This procedure for the face and neck uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.

The FDA-cleared device used in the procedure utilizes the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin.

New collagen is naturally created which restores skin’s youthfulness. In addition, the deeper layers of the skin are thermally tightened and contract, to lift the skin. It is most commonly used on the face and neck to lift sagging brows, reduce excess skin on the lids and open up the eyes thus wiping away years for a younger, rejuvenated look.

In just a single treatment session, the Ultherapy device take images of the deep inner layers of the skin and a wand- like hand piece delivers heat to areas requiring treatment. There is no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy natural, noticeable effect on the outside.

Recovery
With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 30-60 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).

Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.

Note: An initial consult is needed before the procedure can be performed.
