Ultherapy: The Non-Invasive Facelift
Want the results of a surgical facelift without the need for surgery or downtime? Ultherapy is the only FDA approved, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the skin and improves the appearance of fine lines on the face, neck, and décolletage. It can also be used to treat focused areas including the brow, under eye and crow’s feet, perioral area, and under the chin. Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy counteracts the effects of time and gravity by using the body’s own regenerative response to gradually lift and tighten the skin by harnessing the power of ultrasound. Ultrasound is a well-known, well studied, and safe therapy that has been used throughout the medical field for over 50 years. Ultherapy utilizes on ultrasound therapy to both visualize and treat the targeted tissue. During the procedure, Ultherapy is used to visualize the tissue under the skin surface, target tissue and ensure the collagen-boosting treatment is delivered to where it will be most beneficial. Ultherapy is then used to deposit focused energy to create heat in the collagen layer deep below the skin surface. This jump starts your bodies natural process of collagen formation, known as neocollagenesis. This causes the collagen layer to permanently thicken over the course of 4-6 months following the procedure, resulting in naturally tightened and lifted appearance.
You will begin to see results over the next 2-3 months as your body begins to naturally regenerate and build collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, your results are lasting. However, because the skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments may be necessary.
Best of all? With Ultherapy, there is NO downtime! You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment without detailed, time consuming, post-procedure regimens.
Wondering if you might be a good candidate for Ultherapy? The ideal Ultherapy candidate has bothersome skin laxity, making the skin feel and appear less firm. This may look like loose skin of the neck or under the chin, lower face or eyelid “heaviness,” a lowered eyebrow line, or lines and wrinkles on the chest. However, the best way to find out if you are an Ultherapy candidate is to schedule your free consultation with one of our medical providers at Austin Skin and Wellness!
