Ultherapy

Ultherapy

Tighten your facial skin. Look 10 years with Ultherapy.  Ultherapy is a nonsurgical procedure that tightens skin on the face and neck. Call us to learn more about how we can help you choose the best treatment to give you a more youthful appearance.
Ultherapy uses ultrasound rays to stimulate the production of collagen which is the body’s own skin repair/skin tightening agent. It lifts the eyebrows, neck and under the chin. Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA. We have board certified to help you tighten your skin and look your best.

The treatment:

In Ultherapy treatment, ultrasound waves are pressed against the skin with a hand held device which allows for deep penetration of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen, the body’s natural skin tightening agent. Ultrasound therapy is different from laser light therapy in that ultrasound can go deeper into the skin than laser spectrum light, without causing damage. Treatments last 60-90 minutes for the face and neck. Approximately 30 minutes for the chest. Typically only one treatment is required. However, as the skin ages additional treatments may be desired to maintain your appearance. Consult with your dermatologist for the best plan for you.

Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy treatment?

If you have loose skin around your eyebrows, neck, under the chin, face, and decolletage (the low neckline just below the clavicle or collar bone.) then you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy. Ultherapy is for older people with sagging skin. It generally is not used to correct blemishes, acne scars or scars in general.

Post-treatment expectations

You should expect tighter skin and a more youthful appearance. Directly after the treatment there may be some redness but this should disappear after a few hours. There may also be some slight swelling and tenderness to the touch. These symptoms are usually temporary. If they persist contact your dermatologist immediately. There is no downtime after Ultherapy treatment, so you can resume your daily routine immediately.

Cost

Ultherapy treatment costs range from $2000-$3000 for one session. Usually only one session is needed to achieve positive results.
