Ultherapy® is a non-invasive skin procedure that was cleared by the FDA to treat sagging skin. It is able to stimulate your body’s regenerative capabilities to tighten the facial skin. The way that Ultherapy® works is through the transmission of focused ultrasound to actually increase your body’s production of collagen. Collagen is an extremely important part of your skin that creates structure and volume. The Ultherapy® procedure is safe and effective for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure requires no anesthetic or downtime.
Ultherapy® is known as the only non-invasive procedure that was approved by the FDA for the lifting of skin. It is also the sole cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound imaging. This gives us the ability to see very clearly tissue layers that are being treated to ensure that the ultrasound energy is being delivered where it will do the most good.
Since Ultherapy® is a non-invasive procedure, you will not need to go under the knife. This means that you should expect no downtime after your treatment. Since there are no incisions, there are no wounds that require healing. This allows you to get back to your normal activities immediately after your treatment.
Ultherapy® is different from other procedures like radiofrequency, lasers, and surgery because it has the ability to bypass the outermost layer of your skin, delivering just the right amount of energy where it is needed. The treatment works by triggering your body’s own natural production of collagen.
Following your Ultherapy® procedure, your skin will begin to remodel itself at deeper tissue levels, and your skin will see an increased level of collagen fibers. Your results will build gradually and should become apparent within months while your body regenerates collagen. The length of time that your results will last is very dependent upon each individual. Everyone has a unique pattern of aging.
