Ultherapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of rejuvenating the skin and the tissues underneath. This safe, effective technology based on ultrasound uses the body's own restorative healing properties to lift, tone and tighten loose skin on the neck, along the brow line and under the chin.
The typical course of treatment consists of multiple sessions, the course of which will be determined by our practitioners.
Our Ulthera machine is state-of-the-art technology that focuses targeted ultrasound waves into the tissues beneath your skin to stimulate collagen growth. Collagen, a natural protein, gives elasticity and tone to the skin - the breakdown or weakening of collagen is often what gives skin its loosened, sagging appearance as we age.
Ultherapy is an “uplift,” not a facelift. It can be a viable alternative for those not ready to consider cosmetic surgery. The procedure is well suited to adults whose skin has begun to loosen or sag around the neck or chin.
Normal day-to-day activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. Ultherapy works with the body's natural healing processes, which take time and should be patiently allowed to develop. While some benefits may be experienced soon after the procedure, collagen will begin to show evidence of regaining tone after two to three months; by six months after the procedure, the final effects will be evident. These results typically last for up to a year following the procedure; touch up appointments can prolong the effects of Ulthera.
