Ultherapy is a non-invasive, revolutionary treatment that uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate the body to build more collagen to improve jowls and necks, reduce double chins, and lift the brow. It is the only FDA-approved device of its kind to use ultrasound energy, making it more accurate and effective than any other device for skin tightening. Ultherapy® has been FDA-approved for treating fine and deep lines in the decolletage area.
The natural protein collagen keeps the skin taut and supple and gives it a youthful appearance. Collagen starts to lose its strength as we age and its ability to stand up to gravity’s effects that pull the skin downward. Ultherapy creates thermal energy under the skin using focused ultrasound. In essence, the thermal impact stimulates collagen repair, strengthening existing collagen and producing fresh, new collagen.
The Ultratherapy® method creates heat under the skin using micro-focused ultrasound. It basically jump-starts your body’s own collagen-building process. Ultherapy® creates a thermal affect under the skin by using micro-focused ultrasound.
Ultherapy is the only non-surgical procedure that applies ultrasound directly to layers of the face, which is the same layer that can be treated in surgery. We can also see the layers of skin we are treating using ultrasound, which allows us to deliver energy to precisely the right place.
Ideally, Ultherapy candidates have mild to moderate skin laxity, making them appear and feel less firm.
You may see some results right after your Ultherapy® Treatment, but the ultimate results will appear over the next several months after your body naturally regenerates collagen.
The procedure results will depend on how long it takes for your own collagen to generate. Your natural aging process determines how long this treatment will lead to visible results on the outside. The treatment generates new collagen on the inside, but it takes time to show on the outside.
There is no downtime with Ultherapy. Following your Ultherapy procedure, you should be able to return to your normal activities without taking any special post-treatment measures.
