So, what is Ultherapy ®?
Ultherapy® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure for skin tightening to lift the eyebrow, neck, jawline, and décolletage areas. Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited to where it will be most beneficial. This focused ultrasound energy boosts collagen production, a process also known as neocollagenesis, and actually triggers your body’s natural healing response, promoting the regenerative process that produces new collagen. The procedure is unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery, and other technologies since it bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. Ultherapy can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the chest, to tighten the jowls, and even to treat fine lines around the eyes, with almost no downtime.
How do I know I am a 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, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re an Ultherapy candidate is to consult with our practitioners, so it is important to schedule a free consultation appointment.
