Ultherapy: An Uplift, not a Facelift
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin.
Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside-in, the Ultherapy procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, specifically targeting the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen lives, stimulates the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift without disturbing the surface of the skin. Using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy actually works from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin non-invasively.
Our body’s response to this energy is to recondition tired skin by stimulating the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting or shifting of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape.
Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery. In cases of extreme laxity some patients may need a second treatment.
