Our skin’s suppleness fades as we age, causing it to lose its lift, tone, and tightness. While a traditional facelift may help correct these issues, it often requires an invasive approach, long recovery times, and poses a risk of complications. Ultherapy is a revolutionary treatment that may help improve the appearance of your skin without surgery. So ditch the needles and injections and say hello to Ultherapy.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
By using natural ultrasound frequencies, Ultherapy is able to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate the production of new collagen. Collagen is a natural protein that helps keep skin looking young and healthy. The ultrasound frequency helps tighten and lift the skin, resulting in a smoother appearance.
Ultherapy uses focused imaging to target the treatment area and ensure that the ultrasound frequency is delivered to the desired area, making the treatment precise and effective.
The Benefits of Ultherapy
Unlike traditional facelifts, which may have a recovery time of several weeks, Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment with no downtime. Ultherapy may be used to tighten the skin in wrinkle and laxity-prone areas, including:
- Full face
Ultherapy provides natural-looking results that are gradual and continue to improve over time. You may see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of your skin after just one treatment, but for the best results, a series of treatments is recommended.
So, if you’re looking for a more youthful appearance and want to get rid of those pesky wrinkles while tightening the skin, Ultherapy may be the non-surgical solution for you.
What to Expect During the Procedure
At the Academic Alliance in Dermatology, our talented team of Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners uses the latest Ultherapy technology to deliver superior results. Before the procedure, we will use a topical anesthetic to provide our patients with a pain-free experience.
Natural ultrasound frequency will be delivered through a handpiece and is placed on the skin. You may feel a warming sensation during the treatment, but it is generally very comfortable. A full-face treatment takes about an hour to complete. After the treatment, you may experience some redness and tenderness, but this will typically clear up within an hour.
How Long Will the Results Last?
Because the production of new collagen takes time to occur, the results of Ultherapy may continue to improve over the course of several months. Peak results are typically seen at around three to six months post-treatment, but the benefits of Ultherapy may continue to be seen for a couple of years. While each patient is unique, it is recommended that you receive Ultherapy every few years for optimal results.
