Ultherapy™ is a face and neck treatment that creates a brand new category in aesthetics—non-invasive tissue lifting. For the first time ever, Ultherapy enables practitioners to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, Ultherapy also promotes the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness in the future.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually—and reliably—restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take place over 2-3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
There isn't a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy offers a ‘no downtime’ approach to improving lax skin in a meaningful way.
