Looking to naturally lift and tighten your skin? Ultherapy® may be right for you! 

As we age, one of the difficult realities we must often come to terms with is that we don’t look on the outside the way we feel on the inside. The years that we’ve lived bring memories, experiences and self-confidence - they often also bring less pleasing signs of aging. Our skin begins to fall and droop, our brows and eyelids become heavy, our facial contours lose their shape and our neck may even hang.

For these reasons, more and more patients are inquiring about non-surgical options for lifting and tightening the skin in specific problem areas such as the neck, chin, jawline, and brows. One such option is Ultherapy®, a one-of-a-kind treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to target the deep layers of the skin and boost collagen production. The procedure naturally lifts and tightens the skin, resulting in a fresher, more youthful appearance.

If you’re wondering whether Ultherapy is right for you, here’s what you need to know:

It’s FDA Approved

In fact, Ultherapy is the ONLY FDA-approved treatment for non-invasive lift. This means that the Food and Drug Administration, after numerous clinical studies and treatments, has deemed Ultherapy safe for use on skin under the chin, on the neck and on the brows, as well as to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolleté. So, you can rest easy knowing that this treatment is both safe and effective!

It’s Non-Invasive

We are fortunate enough to live in a time where surgery is no longer the only option for tightening and lifting the skin. Ultherapy only requires a single, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment to achieve noticeable results. Your practitioner will first determine exactly where the treatment should be applied. Then, with a smooth applicator, focused ultrasound energy is delivered to the deep layers of your skin. This is where the collagen-building process begins!

It’s Quick and Easy

Depending on the area you’re having treated, the procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Some patients notice immediate changes, but you should expect to see results appear over 2 to 3 months, and even up to 6 months following your treatment, as the newly-stimulated collagen works to lift and tighten your skin.

There’s Zero Downtime

You want to improve your appearance, but you’re busy! We understand that not everyone has ample time to dedicate to proper recovery following a treatment. Luckily, with Ultherapy, there’s absolutely no downtime! Some patients may appear flushed following treatment and experience slight swelling, tingling, bruising or tenderness. These mild side effects shouldn’t affect your daily routine. You’re free to return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment, making Ultherapy the perfect solution for busy men and women searching for results.

The Results are Long-Lasting

Ultherapy can be performed on its own or in combination with other treatments for optimal tightening effects. As previously stated, results are usually noticeable by about 3 months following treatment and they offer up to 2 years of noticeably firmer, more youthful-looking skin!
