What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a less-intensive, non-surgical facelift alternative for treating sagging and skin laxity around the face, neck, and decolletage. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved, high-focus ultrasound device that stimulates deep layers of skin to tighten and lift the treated areas, but doesn’t disturb the surface of the skin. This treatment is ideal for those who want a quick and convenient, non-surgical option to address facial aging.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Ultherapy safe?
Ultherapy is a proven treatment with a well-established safety profile. It is currently marketed worldwide in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments performed globally to date. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
What does Collagen do? How does Ultherapy stimulate the creation of Collagen?
Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. The thermal effect jump-starts your body to produces fresh, new collagen.
Can Ultherapy treat Turkey Neck?
As the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, Ultherapy is designed to treat “turkey neck,” one of the common signs of aging skin. Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look without surgery or downtime.
Who Is A Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals a patient might be a candidate. Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery. There also are younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
