Using state-of-the-art micro focused ultrasound technology, Ultherapy is the only noninvasive treatment FDA approved to lift and tighten skin. Want a little lift in your brow? Are jowls starting to appear? Is your chest showing those baby oil burns? It’s tough to find a better no-downtime option for overall lift on the face, brows, neck, or chest.
Utilizing ultrasound energy along with your body’s own natural healing process, Ultherapy focuses energy into the deep support layers of your skin, which respond instantly by contracting (shrinking) the tissue, then firming and smoothing over time. Many patients see a tightening “boost” immediately and the best results are at 3-6 months when the skin-firming collagen stimulation is complete. Results are proven to last well over a year since new, healthy collagen has been established.
How does it work? If you’ve researched Ultherapy, you’ve read or heard it’s uncomfortable. We alleviate that pain by prescribing a pain killer to take during treatment which requires you to have a driver. You can do it without painkillers but it’s much more pleasant to take medicine.
Treatments take 45-90 minutes to complete. Rectangular boxes are drawn on the skin, and a precise number of pulses are performed in each rectangular box. The following day you can return to daily activities or work. Most patients experience some soreness (and occasional bruising) in the treated areas.
This staff-favorite is the ideal treatment for overall firmer, lifted skin.
