Have you been feeling self-conscious about the wrinkles and sagging skin on your face but don’t want to go under the knife? Then Ultherapy treatment may be right for you. Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that can make you look much younger. This procedure is perfect for people who want to reverse the effects of time without having to undergo major surgery. In fact, Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive facelift treatment. It can successfully lift the skin on your neck, chin, and brow.
Ultherapy® has been named “Best Nonsurgical Skin Tightener” in the 2016 Beauty Choice Awards. This is the 3rd consecutive year Ultherapy® has been recognized by NewBeauty readers and editors in their Beauty Choice Awards.
About the treatment
As stated above, Ultherapy is a non-surgical facelift treatment, which means no scalpels are used. It can improve décolletage lines and wrinkles, which can give you a more youthful appearance. Ultherapy helps you get tighter, better-fitting skin, which smooths out wrinkles from your brow to your chest. Because it is a non-invasive procedure, you won’t have any downtime for recovery. You can book an appointment for Ultherapy during your lunch break and return to work right afterwards. This is perfect for you if you’re always on the go and don’t have the time to rest up after major surgery. This procedure also eliminates the need for pain medications.
How it works
Ultherapy works through the power of ultrasound. Ultrasound is a safe procedure that has been used in the medical field for over 50 years, which means it has been proven to be safe and effective in numerous clinical studies. Ultherapy has also been found to be safe and effective through clinical studies and in over half a million treatments that have been performed all over the world.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound therapy, which is the vessel for applying its collagen-boosting treatment. Our doctors use traditional ultrasound in order to get a look at the layers of tissue they are treating on you. This is the way that they make sure the Ultherapy treatment is being applied to the areas where you need it most.
What to expect
Before your Ultherapy treatment, you should schedule a consultation with your doctor to see if you’re a good candidate for it. If you’ve been approved for the procedure, then you don’t need to do anything extra before your appointment. However, you may be advised to take an over-the-counter medication before the treatment to maximize your comfort.
During your treatment, you may feel small sensations while the energy is being delivered. You should feel no pain. Treatments on your face and neck take about 60 to 90 minutes, and chest treatments take about 30 minutes.
Afterwards, your skin may be a little flushed, as well as tingly, swollen, or tender, but you can resume normal activities right away. You may also experience bruising or numbness, but they are not common and are temporary effects. Ultherapy results may take about two to three months to be noticeable, as your body regenerates collagen.
