The natural aging process, combined with sun exposure, makes collagen in the skin breakdown and causes fine lines and wrinkles. As these conditions worsen over time, many people begin to look older than their age. To achieve a more youthful facial appearance without undergoing invasive surgical procedures, more men and women are seeking Ultherapy®.
What Is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical procedure that effectively restores a smoother appearance to the face. Approved by the FDA, this cosmetic treatment uses ultrasonic energy to stimulate collagen production to lift and tighten skin on the face and neck.
Ultherapy® can effectively improve the following areas of the face:
- Jaw line
Benefits of Ultherapy®
Ultherapy® offers some advantages over surgical procedures (facelift, brow lift and neck lift), including:
- No downtime
- No anesthesia
- No incisions
- Virtually no pain
Ultherapy® can be beneficial for just about any person who is relatively fit and has no serious medical condition. Candidates for this procedure have noticeable aging on their face and neck that makes them look older than their age.
Each Ultherapy® treatment is performed in our office and usually takes 2-4 hours to complete. A specialized device emits ultrasonic waves to the treated area that jump-starts the production of collagen to improve the appearance of the face and neck.
Once the Ultherapy® treatment is complete, patients can return to work and resume their daily tasks immediately. Although redness and swelling may appear after treatment, these symptoms will subside within a few hours.
Although the results of Ultherapy® will not be immediately apparent, patients can expect to see a noticeable improvement in their facial appearance over the coming weeks and months. In most instances, the results of Ultherapy® can last in upwards of a year or more, with future treatments being desired to maintain the best results.
