Time takes a toll on us all – and our faces are the first place to show signs of aging. Between sun damage, the breakdown of the skin’s structural scaffolding, and the slow pull of gravity, we end up seeing some sagging and loose skin. This makes us self-conscious and uncomfortable, and even affects our senses of self worth.
The answer to loose skin doesn’t have to be expensive or invasive, as with a standard facelift. Instead, we can offer incredible tightening by taking advantage of the body’s natural collagen production. With Ultherapy, just one, comfortable treatment session will result in tighter skin.
This brand-new ultrasound technology is not only incredibly effective, but is also approved by the FDA. You can pursue treatment while knowing that it has been thoroughly researched, and know that the results are completely safe for you and your skin.
We understand that you probably have plenty of questions about this new skin tightening method. Read on for an Ultherapy FAQ, and contact us with any questions you don’t find answered here.
Ultherapy Skin Tightening FAQ
What are the differences between an Ultherapy facelift and a surgical facelift?
Many – the two procedures take completely different approaches. A facelift actually pulls the skin on your face up to a new position, tightening everything on the face. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production to boost the structures that support the skin. While Ultherapy’s ultrasound technology won’t produce results that are as dramatic, the entire process is far more comfortable and natural.
What does treatment feel like?
Ultherapy is largely comfortable for patients, who will feel a warming during the ultrasound.
Which areas can be treated?
Check out the graphic above: Ultherapy is gentle enough to be used on the décolleté, neck, chin, and brow.
Will there be downtime after treatment?
Patients experience little to no downtime post-Ultherapy, and are usually able to get back to normal activities right away.
How long until I see results?
Because Ultherapy uses the body’s natural collagen production to tighten skin, it takes time to see the full extent of your results. Most patients see the full amount of tightening within 6 months to one year. These results will last for years to come.
