While many of us would like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin along the face, invasive surgical procedures with long recovery times are either not desired or not necessary to achieve successful results. At Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center, our experienced dermatologists are now offering an innovative new procedure that can tighten the skin without surgery. Ultherapy™, also known as Ulthera™, utilizes ultrasonic waves to rejuvenate areas of skin that are showing signs of drooping or sagging. This procedure can be a very effective alternative to invasive surgery for patients who are experiencing mild to moderate wrinkling in facial skin.
Please contact us today for more information on Ultherapy™.
What is Ultherapy™?
Ultherapy™ is a skin rejuvenation technique designed to firm up facial skin that has lost some of its elasticity. The procedure involves no needles and no downtime. Using ultrasonic soundwaves, Ultherapy™ helps the skin to grow more natural collagen and regenerate healthier skin layers. This can ultimately give the skin a sort of natural “lift” for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Benefits of Ultherapy™
For patients with more subtle signs of facial aging and those who are beginning to experience wrinkles and sagging skin, Ultherapy™ can provide a number of benefits, including:
- Stimulation of collagen to replenish more youthful and smooth skin
- Non-invasive – no surgery and no lasers
- Results continue to improve naturally and gradually over time
- No recovery time is typically necessary
How it Works
The Ultherapy™ procedure begins with the use of a special device guided over your skin to sends ultrasonic waves to the underlying layers. This is able to produce a heating effect which coagulates the soft tissue and encourages the skin’s natural collagen to grow, ultimately tightening the skin in the treatment area and improving elasticity.
Ultherapy™ treatment typically lasts about an hour and a half to two hours and requires no needles or incisions to perform. Most patients do not require downtime after the procedure, and typically resume normal daily routines later that day.
The initial results of Ultherapy™ are often seen about two to three months after treatment, once the collagen has had ample time to grow and the skin has gradually tightened, while optimal results are seen at six months.
