Aging skin has a habit of losing elasticity, which in turn leads to the formation of wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. Sagging around the neck can give the impression of a double chin. Overall, these signs of aging can leave you looking much older than you may feel and can undermine your self-confidence. Ultherapy is a state-of-the-art anti-aging technique that can lift and tighten skin around the neck and eyebrows and under the chin.
For those who only need minor lifting or aren’t quite ready for a facelift, Ultherapy is an excellent alternative. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved procedure that utilizes ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen growth deep in the skin.
The procedure begins with skin cleaning around the area to be treated. Ultrasound gel is then applied. A smooth handpiece is guided over the areas to be treated and delivers controlled, concentrated pulses of ultrasound energy just below the skin. This stimulates a reaction in the skin to produce fresh collagen, which is a key part of reinvigorating yours skin’s vitality.
The procedure can last between 60 to 90 minutes, and this non-invasive technology allows you to immediately return to your daily activities. Over the two to three months following your procedure, you will see a lifting and rejuvenating effect unfold as your skin’s underlying support layers are tightened naturally. The improvement continues for up to six months.
Patients may experience some redness after the procedure, but it typically subsides within a few hours. During the procedure, some patients may report some discomfort due to the sensation of the ultrasound energy.
Most patients only need one treatment, but some patients may consider more depending on their body’s response to the initial ultrasound treatment.
Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is little preparation necessary compared to more traditional surgical procedures.
