What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is an FDA approved, non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound technology to tighten and smooth lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. As we age, our body naturally loses collagen, which in turn creates wrinkles and fine lines. With Ultherapy’s ultrasound technology, it stimulates collagen in the body leaving you with tighter, smoother looking skin, erasing years of aging.
A good candidate for Ultherapy, is someone who has moderate skin laxity in areas where the skin should feel smooth and firm. Areas of the body Ultherapy can be used for are:
- Loose skin under the neck
- Sagging under the chin
- Lines and wrinkles on the chest
- Lowered eyebrow line
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy focuses on ultrasound energy set at optimal temperature for collagen stimulation. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but as we age, this process slows down. This treatment restarts this process, which in turn creates natural looking and real results. Treatment typically takes 60-90 minutes depending on the area being treated. Most patients only need one treatment, however, some patients can benefit from additional treatments depending on your skin.
There is little to no down time with Ultherapy as the treatment is non-surgical. Minimal redness, swelling and discomfort may be experienced following treatment, but usually resides within 24 hours. You are able to return back to your routine daily activities immediately.
