Stimulating collagen production is the heart of various anti-aging treatments. Ultrasound technology isn’t something you would consider to be associated with these types of treatments. Surprisingly, the same technology that enables us to see a baby inside the womb is also turning back the hands of time. Ultherapy is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that harnesses ultrasound technology that restores what was once lost to aging.
No Cuts, No Downtime
Ultherapy is the only FDA cleared non-invasive skin tightening procedure to lift the skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The areas it can treat are the brows, upper chest, and neck. Ultherapy jumpstarts collagen production by using micro-focused ultrasound at a specific temperature and skin depth. The technology generates a thermal effect deep under the skin that sends signals to the body to start making collagen.
Ultherapy is non-invasive because the procedure doesn’t involve needles or cutting. Some flushing of the treated areas is normal, but normal activities can resume immediately after. During your consultation, our experts will work with you to determine the number of treatments you need. Each session is approximately 30-90 minutes, depending on the area. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and firmness to the skin. Over time, our body produces less and less of it as we get older. Collagen production takes time, so while some may see a difference in a few days, optimal results take a few months. Benefits of Ultherapy include:
- Natural-looking results
- Smoother, firmer skin
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Effects that improve over time can last up to a year or longer
Are You an Ideal Candidate for Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a perfect choice for those looking to improve aging signs around the brows, upper chest, and neck without significant surgery. There’s no downtime, so patients unable to undergo a lengthy recovery process appreciate that. Patience is a must while your body works its magic producing collagen.
