Ultherapy® is the first treatment that tightens and lifts the skin to create the only FDA-approved, non-surgical brow, neck, décolleté, and/or face lift in under two hours.
Ultherapy® is micro-focused ultrasound energy that that is transmitted through a handheld device to target the layer just below the skin where collagen growth occurs. The other, more superficial layers of the skin are not affected by this ultrasound energy, therefore leaving them unharmed and fully intact. By targeting the deeper layer, the body’s own immune system will stimulate a healing response with new collagen growth, which will improve tightness and the overall skin appearance. The most commonly treated areas are the brow, neck and under the chin.
Directly following the procedure, the area being treated may appear slightly flushed and some mild to severe bruising and/or swelling may occur. The treated area may be sore to touch for about two weeks. Ultimate results will occur during the following two to three months after this treatment, and will continue to improve for up to six months. Most patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one treatment (depending on the amount of skin laxity and the patient’s own biological response to this treatment)
