Ulthera Ultherapy DEEPsee Ultrasound Skin Tightening Contouring uses ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin on your face and chest, without surgery. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and the eyebrow, and to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy works by stimulating collagen over time.
Due to aging and environmental factors (i.e. smoking and sun exposure), collagen production in the body slows down. Over 2-3 months following your treatment, new collagen is produced, lifting and tightening the skin. Ultherapy, a non-invasive treatment, goes deeper to stimulate production of your body’s own collagen and elastin, for natural-looking results without surgery or downtime.
What is Ultherapy?
Ulthera Ultherapy DEEPsee Ultrasound Skin Tightening Contouring is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. Through the ultrasound imaging with Ultherapy, energy is delivered precisely to the place where it will benefit you most—for natural-looking results that improve over time.
How It Works?
Ulthera Ultherapy therapy for natural-looking results. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. This effect essentially jump-starts your body’s own process to create fresh, new collagen.
What is Ultherapy and how much does it cost?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound to lift and tighten the skin on your face and chest, without surgery.
How long does Ultherapy last?
After your Ultherapy Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
What is the difference between Thermage and Ultherapy?
Both Thermage and Ultherapy use energy to stimulate collagen production. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy and Thermage uses radio frequency energy.
Does Ultherapy treatment hurt?
Some patients tolerate the procedure well, while other patients may experience discomfort. Prescription medications and topical anesthetics are used to help make the procedure more tolerable.
What are the risks of Ultherapy?
The skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these are temporary in nature. Other, less common post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which your practitioner will review with you.
