Ultherapy is a brand-new anti-aging treatment, revolutionizing the cosmetic industry. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure utilizing precisely targeted ultrasound waves and the body’s own natural healing process. It raises, tones, and tightens loose and saggy skin on the brow, neck, under the chin, and the décolletage. Many patients have seen a significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well, making this a very popular procedure and less harsh than treatments such as the "chemical peel".
With Ultherapy, there are no foreign substances being injected into the body. This makes it a safe option, especially for those patients with particular sensitivities or allergies. Ultherapy is working from within, stimulating and rejuvenating the body’s own ability to produce collagen.
First, a special gel is applied to the area or areas being treated. Next, a smooth applicator is pressed firmly against the skin, using Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging. This allows Dr. Collins to see deep beneath the skin’s surface, enabling her to determine the most beneficial placement of the treatment, thus treating the exact areas in need of regeneration.
With Ultherapy, Dr. Collins is able to direct sound waves well below the skin, reaching the same tissue as a traditional facelift. Minute amounts of energy pulsate down through several layers of skin, triggering your body’s own collagen renewal process. As the sound waves gently heat the tissue, the regeneration process begins, lifting and tightening any loose and sagging skin.
The length of your Ultherapy treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual anatomy. A face and neck treatment generally takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
Common Areas Treated With Ultherapy
- Eye area
Ultherapy is known to “lift” the brow, reducing the appearance of excess or baggy skin on the lids and “popping” open the eyes. Additionally, it is highly effective in elevating and firming sagging necklines, creating a more elegant and sleek silhouette.
Recovery & Results
Ultherapy typically requires about 30 minutes or more, depending on how many areas are being treated. An over-the-counter pain medication is usually adequate for any mild discomfort the patient may experience during the procedure. There is generally no downtime and most patients may immediately return to work and daily life. Results appear gradually over months, as your body regenerates its own collagen supply. Depending on the severity of the patient’s sagging skin, a second session may be recommended to achieve the desired results. However, many patients are very pleased with the results after just one session.
