If you want to lift and tone loose or sagging skin on your face or neck without any downtime Ultherapy could be your best option. Unlike a face-lift, Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that addresses the skin and support layers below it, but doesn’t entail cutting or breaking the surface of the skin. Ultherapy is the first and only FDA approved non-invasive device for structural tissue lifting and FDA cleared for noninvasive lifting of the skin on the brow, neck and chin, and chest.
How does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy delivers ultrasound pulses to very specific layers of the skin. The heat from the therapy stimulates the contraction of collagen fibers and creates a localized reaction to stimulate the lifting and toning of the skin, which improves over a period of time. Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate fibroblasts in your skin and facial soft tissues to make brand new collagen. A full-face treatment can take 90-120 minutes. Some tightening occurs immediately after treatment, and you will observe a gradual lifting and conditioning of your facial skin over time. This usually takes about 3 months and can continue to improve several months after the procedure.
Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line with extra upper eyelid skin, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. We find that many of our patients are hesitant to undergo surgery or just don’t have a lot of extra skin to justify an operation.
