The Benefits of Ultherapy
Ultherapy uses the time-tested technology of ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and chest. It is completely non-invasive, requiring no surgery to create a naturally-lifted appearance to your skin. Your skin will feel tighter, appear smoother and have a subtle lift after only one or more treatments. This procedure stimulates the natural regenerative processes deep within the layers of your skin, boosting natural collagen production without harmful chemicals or damaging the surrounding skin, leaving your face looking fresh and rejuvenated.
Why choose Ultherapy for skin renewal?
- No chemicals
- No needles
- No downtime
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultrasound technology has been around for over fifty years and is now used therapeutically to stimulate collagen production in your skin. The ultrasound is combined with computer imaging which allows the ultrasound to target the deeper tissue layers where it can bring the most dramatic boost to skin quality. The ultrasound energy stimulates underlying tissues, signaling the skin to produce more collagen. Over the course of two to three months this boost in collagen will become apparent as you start to see your skin lift and tighten.
Which areas can be treated with Ultherapy?
Ultherapy can be used on many areas such as:
- The chin
The deeper tissues of these areas, when stimulated with Ultherapy, can lift, tighten and firm in ways similar to the results of cosmetic surgery, with very natural-looking results.
How is Ultherapy better than other treatments?
Ultherapy is often considered better than other treatments due to its non-invasive nature. There is no skin or tissue damage such as the kind associated with chemical peels, microneedling, or even laser therapy. There is also no downtime typically associated with Ultherapy as can occur with more invasive treatments.
The results are beautiful and natural and occur through your body’s own production of collagen, making Ultherapy an excellent option for those who do not feel ready for surgical or a more invasive cosmetic procedure.
The Ultherapy procedure
The first step in any treatment is coming in for a consultation with Dr. Matthew White to determine your candidacy for treatment with Ultherapy. The procedure itself is relatively comfortable and there is generally no need for anesthetics. The skin is first cleansed prior to the ultrasound gel being applied to the areas to be treated. Once the gel is applied then the smooth surface of the Ultherapy device is placed against your skin.
At this point, computer imaging is used to perfectly target the correct depth to deliver the ultrasound energy to best stimulate collagen production. As this energy is delivered you may feel slight discomfort, but it varies from person to person. An Ultherapy session can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on which areas are being treated.
After the treatment, you can expect to return directly to your day as normal although there may be some minor bruising or discomfort in the treated areas.
When will I see results?
Some results can sometimes be seen right away but the full results will require a few months to develop as your body will need time to produce collagen and gradually take on its fresh, supple, firmer quality.
