Nonsurgical Skin Tightening

Non-surgical skin tightening results

Have you dreamed of a facelift but don’t want to go under the knife? Do you wish you could tighten the skin on your face, neck and chest with no downtime or recovery time required? Would you like to rejuvenate your appearance without looking like you had work done? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Ultherapy is the nonsurgical facelift you have been looking for! Now you can tighten and tone your skin with a non-invasive treatment that gives you a natural, youthful appearance, not a fake or frozen look. With Ultherapy you can be in and out of the Vein Care Center in less than 90 minutes and return to your regular activities, with no cutting, downtime or recovery time necessary.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive ultrasound technology of its kind approved by the FDA for the treatment of loose skin on the face, neck, chest, chin and brow area. Ultherapy is unique in that it uses ultrasound imaging to assess deeper layers of skin before it delivers targeted ultrasound energy to treat those areas. The heat from the ultrasound energy stimulates collagen production underneath the surface of the skin. As collagen rebuilds, it improves skin elasticity and firmness, while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result is a naturally rejuvenated, more youthful appearance from the inside out.

How does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy uses ultrasound imaging to view the tissue and muscle beneath the surface of the skin and determine the exact location and depth at which the ultrasound energy will be most effective. Then, the Ultherapy treatment applicator precisely delivers ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface to target different layers of tissue, as well as superficial wrinkles. The ultrasound energy heats the designated layers to the appropriate temperature, causing proteins in the skin to coagulate. This coagulation initiates a healing response in the body that stimulates collagen production, which causes the treated tissue to become tightened and lifted. Collagen will continue to rebuild over time, effectively lifting and firming the skin even more while also improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy does all of this without disrupting the top layer of skin or damaging underlying tissue.

What Does Ultherapy Treat?

Ultherapy lifts and tightens skin on the face, neck and chest. It is both corrective and preventive and can be used to improve the following areas:

  • Jawline – tightens the skin along the jaw, providing definition to the jawline
  • Cheeks – tightens and lifts loose skin, which also smooths the nasolabial folds (the folds on each side of the nose that run to the corners of the mouth)
  • Forehead – smooths wrinkles and gives the appearance of an eye lift
  • Eyebrows – lifts eyebrows, opening up the eyes
  • Upper eyelids – lifts eyelids, revealing a more open and youthful eye
  • Chin – tightens the skin, diminishing a “double chin” and providing definition to the underside of the chin
  • Neck – tightens loose skin on the neck, giving the neck a more youthful appearance
  • Décolletage – smooths wrinkles on the chest
  • Face – reduces fine lines and wrinkles

The Benefits of Ultherapy

Never before has there been a treatment that could deliver significant skin tightening results without a surgical facelift. Because Ultherapy is non-invasive and nonsurgical, it has broad appeal to patients seeking the benefits of a facelift without the inconveniences of surgery. With an Ultherapy treatment you can expect:

  • No cutting, needles or anesthesia
  • Minimal discomfort during and after the treatment
  • Natural-looking results
  • An immediate return to your normal activities
  • To wear make-up immediately following treatment
  • No downtime or recovery time
  • Enhancement of previous cosmetic procedures

What to Expect at Your Ultherapy Consultation

During your consultation, we will take the time to understand your aesthetic goals, so as to provide you with a range of options for your treatment. We will be able to answer all your questions about Ultherapy, and address any concerns you may have about the procedure.

While Ultherapy is non-invasive, the heat generated by the ultrasound energy can be uncomfortable for some. Depending on your level of pain sensitivity, at your consultation we will determine if you will be given some medication to help with any discomfort of the procedure. If the plan is to provide you with this medication, you will need to arrange to have someone drive you to and from your Ultherapy treatment for your own safety. 

The Day of Your Ultherapy Treatment

On the day of your Ultherapy treatment, a certified Ultherapist will make sure you are comfortable, review the treatment plan, provide you with any medication if necessary, and answer any additional questions you may have. Your skin will be cleansed to remove impurities, an ultrasound gel is applied to the treatment area, and the treatment applicator is placed on the skin.

During this time, Ultherapy is not being delivered to your skin; instead, the Ultherapist is using ultrasound imaging to ‘see’ deep below the surface of your skin, and accurately pinpoint where the ultrasound energy needs to be delivered to provide the best possible results. Once the specific areas and depths are determined, the treatment applicator is placed on top of the designated treatment area and ultrasound energy is delivered to precise locations under the skin.

During the procedure, you may experience a warming sensation or tingling of your skin beneath the Ultherapy applicator. This is normal and should dissipate quickly. Most treatments take between 20 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area(s) treated. While there are few side effects with Ultherapy, you may experience mild redness that usually resolves the same day. Some patients experience minor swelling or numbness in the treatment area that usually subsides a few days after the procedure.

You will notice a subtle lift and firmness, as well as fewer fine lines and wrinkles, in the treatment area immediately following Ultherapy. As collagen continues to rebuild over the next three months, you will see continued improvement in the appearance of your skin, with the full effect of the treatment achieved between three and six months following treatment. You can expect to maintain these results for several years, understanding that the natural aging process will continue. While many patients are satisfied with the results of just one Ultherapy session, some patients find that repeat treatments help them better regain and maintain their youthful appearance.
