What Is Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a noninvasive skin-tightening and skin-lifting procedure that uses ultrasound technology to transform the appearance of the skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. It is the ONLY noninvasive skin-lifting procedure approved by the FDA. Ultherapy® was also recently FDA-cleared to treat lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
What Are the Benefits of Ultherapy®?
Many people want to reduce the look of loose or sagging skin, but they aren’t ready to undergo a more invasive procedure, such as a face-lift. If you are one of those people, here’s why Ultherapy® may be the perfect choice for you:
- Your results will be natural-looking
- There is no downtime or recovery period
- Treatments are virtually painless
- Many patients achieve desired results after one session
- Minimal, if any, side effects
- No cutting or disrupting skin surface
- Can be used to extend results of previous cosmetic surgery
Is Ultherapy® Safe?
Absolutely! Ultrasound technology has been safely used by medical professionals for more than 50 years. Additionally, the procedure has proven to be safe in clinical studies and in more than 350,000 treatments around the world.
What Can I Expect At My Ultherapy® Appointment?
Your skin will be cleansed of superficial impurities prior to your Ultherapy® procedure, and a special gel will be applied. Using a smooth treatment applicator, your skilled ultrasound provider at the Vein Care Center will use ultrasound imaging to look into the deep layers of your skin to identify the specific areas to be treated. Ultrasound energy is then delivered beneath the surface of the skin, immediately tightening, toning and stimulating the growth of new collagen. A typical procedure lasts about 60 minutes. That’s why Ultherapy® has earned its nickname — the “lunchtime lift.”
How Long Will It Take To See Results After My Ultherapy® Treatment?
Some patients notice a difference in their appearance immediately after their procedure, however, it usually takes between two and three months before the full skin-tightening and skin-lifting effects of Ultherapy® are visible. Ultherapy® stimulates your body’s collagen production; as collagen regenerates, your skin’s tone will continue to improve. Because the rate at which collagen is produced varies from person to person depending on factors that include age, the amount of time your results will last will vary.
How Much Does Ultherapy® Cost?
Your exact costs will be determined at your consultation at the Vein Care Center, and may vary based on the areas you wish to have treated. To make paying for Ultherapy® treatments convenient for our patients, the Vein Care Center accepts cash, personal checks, money orders and all major credit cards. Financing is also available for qualifying individuals through CareCredit®.
