Looking for a way to tighten and firm the skin of your neck, chin, or décolletage without surgery? Ultherapy® is an amazing option that’s science backed and effective.
What is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is an ultrasound therapy procedure that helps to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, leaving you with skin that looks and feels years younger and firmer. This treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, with no aftercare necessary.
While Ultherapy® won’t give the exact same results as a surgical procedure would, it is a great and effective option. Results for Ultherapy® vary, but peak results come three months post-procedure, with long-term results lasting around a year.
A Look at the Science
As we age, collagen – the protein that gives skin its elasticity and youthfulness – breaks down. As this happens, skin begins to show signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging, creping, and “turkey neck”.
Ultherapy® helps give you back control over the aging process with results that are non-invasive and natural-looking. During an Ultherapy® session ultrasound energy penetrates past the first layers of skin to target the specific areas that need some care. The ultrasound therapy heats the cells, activating the process of neocollagenesis to kick-start your body’s natural collagen production.
Who Can Benefit from Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a phenomenal procedure that provides beautiful results without the need for a laser or blade. Ultherapy® is a great option for individuals who have been looking for a solution for a while but aren’t quite sure about surgical options. While not a permanent solution, Ultherapy® is certainly a great place to start for individuals who want to naturally improve the look and feel of their skin.
Candidates for ultherapy® range from individuals over 30 who have noticed a change to the look and feel of their skin, or people who want to “stay ahead” of the aging curve.
Where can Ultherapy® be used?
Ultherapy® is meant for use on the brows, chin, neck, and décolletage (upper chest skin). These areas are typically the first to show signs of aging. Signs of aging in these areas are often more noticeable than other areas of the body. sooner
Is Ultherapy® painful?
While not painful, patients who have received Ultherapy® have reported warm and tingly sensation in the treatment area. Immediately afterwards the skin may look red and flushed, but this subsides relatively quickly.
Because Ultherapy® is non-surgical and non-invasive, you are free to go about your day as you normally would after your session has finished. There is no downtime following the procedure, because the collagen stimulation has been initiated to the deeper tissue layer. Thus, there is no abrasion or open wounds to the surface of the skin.
