ULTHERA

ULTHERAPY

WHAT IS IT?

Ultherapy (Ulthera, Inc.) is a noninvasive skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound technology to tighten and lift the skin of the face and neck. Using the ultrasound device, the physician is able to visualize the muscles and deep connective tissue below the skin and deliver targeted concentrated ultrasound energy. This energy contracts the muscles and deep tissue and stimulates the body’s own collagen to grow and strengthen, enhancing the scaffolding that supports the skin, and resulting in tighter, smoother, more lifted skin.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Ultherapy treatment is safe for all skin types, but the best candidates who will realize the most benefits are those in their late 30s to early 40s who show early signs of skin laxity.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

During the Ultherapy procedure a smooth ultrasound probe is applied to the skin to deliver low levels of focused heat to the target muscles and tissue deep beneath the skin’s surface. Typically this causes a mild, warm tightening sensation that is tolerable without any form of anesthetic or pain medication; however, your doctor may recommend local anesthetic if your pain threshold is extremely low.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Ultherapy treatment takes 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on surface area being treated.

ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?

There is no residual pain after Ultherapy treatment and zero downtime. You may experience some redness or mild swelling for up to 3 hours post treatment, but nothing that will interfere with daily activities.

WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?

You may see a slightly tighter, firmer you right away, but the building of new collagen happens progressively over 2 to 3 months following the treatment. If there was ever a time when patience is a virtue it’s when you are rewarded with the amazing, risk-free results of Ultherapy: lifted, tightened, and toned skin around the eyes, brow, and jaw line.

RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

Depending on your skin laxity, it may only take one Ultherapy treatment for ideal results; other patients may require a series of 3 treatments. As your skin endures the natural aging process, it is recommended to repeat this treatment every 12 months to maintain results.

The Non-invasive Lift

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!

Safe Ultrasound. No Surgery

Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.
