Ultherapy is a new and exciting FDA-approved cosmetic procedure. It is used to help tone the skin on the face, neck, brow, and chin. Ultherapy ultimately uses an ultrasound device to naturally lift the skin, without surgery. It is a popular procedure because it is minimally invasive and extremely effective.
An ideal Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity, where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Such examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin in the neck area, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy is effective for both men and women. It is also perfect for those looking for a subtle lift that appears natural and leaves you looking more youthful and refreshed.
Those who also wish to lift their face with no downtime or any signs of the procedure are great candidates for this treatment. Although Ultherapy is indeed used for lifting skin, individuals who have severe wrinkling or skin sagging should look for more effective procedures such as surgery for stronger results.
Of course, the best way to find out if you are an Ultherapy candidate is to consult a practitioner.
The length of the treatment definitely depends on the patient, the area being treated, and the individual treatment plan. For example, a face and neck procedure will typically take 60-90 minutes, whereas a chest procedure will take close to 30 minutes.
With this effective and non-invasive procedure, there is absolutely no downtime. Right after the procedure, you will be able to continue on with your daily routine or activities, without needing to take any special action or follow any post-treatment guidelines.
How Soon Will I See the Result?
You may see results as soon as the procedure is over. As the collagen-building process and the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles take place, you will achieve the look you want within 90 days.
How Long Does it Last?
Because Ultherapy stimulates the patient’s natural collagen production, the duration of the results essentially depends on you. Though the treatment triggers new collagen on the inside, your own natural aging process will control how long the results will be visible.
- What is unique about Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is FDA-approved, minimally invasive, non-surgical with zero downtime and very effective results. Ultherapy is also the only procedure to use Ultrasound energy, which enables the professionals to actually see the tissues being targeted throughout the treatment. This ensures that the energy is being properly deposited to where it will be most beneficial for you.
- How does Ultherapy stimulate the generation of Collagen?
Ultherapy emits energy and light that can reach optimal temperature for collagen renovation. The process triggers a natural method, neocollagenesis, to produce new collagen. Ultherapy also does not involve any harsh creams, fillers or toxins; it simply relies on your body’s natural collagen-building mechanism for optimal results.
- What does Ultherapy feel like?
This treatment definitely varies in discomfort from patient to patient. As energy is being deposited to deep layers of the tissue, you may feel small amounts of discomfort. The forehead is also the most sensitive area during the treatment, so some may feel more or less tolerant depending on which area is being targeted. Fortunately, at Elias Dermatology we are at the forefront of providing painless treatments and as such we may use a device called a ProNox during the treatment which alleviates the majority of pain associated with Ultherapy and provides an amazingly comfortable treatment even for the most sensitive areas.
