Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment that can tighten loose skin around the jowls, neck, brows, and décolletage. We use ultrasound technology to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
Unlike lasers, which target the top layers of skin, Ultherapy delivers energy to the deepest layer to lift sagging skin and improve collagen production and strengthening. The energy jumpstarts a natural renewal process called neocollagenesis to produce fresh, new collagen and lift and tighten many layers of the skin. One of the best aspects of the Ultherapy system is that it allows the clinician to see precisely where they are treating beneath the skin, so there is no guesswork involved.
You may begin to see some results from Ultherapy almost immediately after the procedure, but full results will gradually appear over the next 2-3 months as your body produces collagen. Visible results typically last 12-24 months; most patients get maintenance treatments done every 1-3 years. Since the procedure is non-invasive, there are generally no side effects and virtually no evidence that you had anything done.
Virtually anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity is a good candidate for Ultherapy. However, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a trusted clinician to evaluate if this is the right procedure for your body and expectations.
