If you are looking for a way to lift and tighten your skin without any surgery or downtime, Ultherapy® may be right for you. This procedure is currently the only FDA-cleared treatment to lift skin on the eyebrows, under the chin, and on the neck.
How Does it Work?
Ultherapy® works by using harnessed ultrasound power. It is a combination of ultrasound therapy and ultrasound imaging. The ultrasound therapy is used to boost the production of collagen. Ultrasound imaging is done to make sure the practitioner can see all of the layers of the skin. This way, the energy is delivered to where it can do the most good. Ultherapy® treats the deep layers of skin that topical products cannot touch without disturbing the surface layer of your skin.
In order to lift your skin, Ultherapy® helps to jumpstart neocollagenesis, the natural process of making collagen. It provides your skin with a lift without using any fillers or other injectables. All that is happening is your body is being encouraged to create new collagen.
How Does Ultherapy® Differ From Laser Treatment?
At the surface, Ultherapy® may sound a lot like some laser treatments you may have heard of. The main difference is that Ultherapy® can stimulate the production of collagen at your skin’s foundation.
How long a treatment session will last will depend greatly on the area being treated. Most patients only need one treatment. Some people may benefit from additional treatments. You will not need to take any real time off of work or change your lifestyle in any way after having this procedure done. Most patients go right back to their activities.
