Ultherapy: The Non-Invasive Way to Tighter Skin
As we begin to age, gravity takes a toll on our skin, especially the brows, neck, and that telltale area under the chin. Our hormones begin to change in our 30s, causing skin-firming collagen and elastin to start breaking down, no longer supporting our skin as well as when we were younger. This process can leave you looking tired and older than you feel.
Your board-certified dermatologists at Genesis Dermatology in Jupiter, Florida, have numerous proven approaches to help you turn back the clock. One of our favorites is Ultherapy, a non-invasive way to lift and tighten brows, the neck, the area under the chin, as well as the chest and décolletage.
What Is Ultherapy?
The procedure uses focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen regeneration across troublesome areas. It will counteract the effects of gravity and collagen loss without surgery, leaving your skin tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking, as well as providing a more even skin tone.
How Does It Work?
Ultherapy employs ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production in the skin’s deep, inner layers. It uses the body’s own regenerative powers to produce the collagen necessary to gently and gradually lift and tighten skin. The breakthrough technology of Ultherapy is its DeepSEE technology, a device that creates images of the skin’s inner layers, which are then projected onto a screen, allowing us to precisely target the areas to be treated and can penetrate to the muscle and overlying tissues targeted in a face lift. Unlike the more extensive repair involved in a surgical facelift, Ultherapy produces subtle, natural-looking results.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
The Ultherapy procedure takes approximately 45 minutes. Because some patients experience discomfort, we may prescribe a mild painkiller beforehand, although the company has recently modified the device’s intensity to minimize the risk of pain. After applying sonogram gel, we will slowly guide the wand across the areas to be treated. You will experience mild sensations of prickling or warmth beneath the skin, where the ultrasound device is generating heat targeted to the desired areas. We have a chilling device which blows cold air in the areas to be treated which significantly cuts down on the warm sensation felt.
Most people can return to work after the procedure, although some may experience slight redness, and prefer to take the afternoon off.
When Can I See Results?
Ultherapy is not a surgical facelift. While you may begin to notice results in a few days, because Ultherapy works naturally with your body to stimulate collagen production, final results can take several monthsto become fully noticeable. As the collagen begins to regenerate, it will gradually lift, tone, and tighten the areas treated.
How Long Does It Last?
Typical results can be expected to last up to a year or more, requiring only periodic maintenance treatments after that.
