The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin.
An Uplift, not a Facelift!
If you find yourself studying the effects of time on your features, pulling back the loose skin on your face, wondering what you can do to restore some of the firm, smooth youthfulness you once had, you may have considered getting a facelift. If you are ready for a lift, but not able to commit to the cost or time associated with recovery from a surgical procedure, or are concerned that a sudden or obvious change might leave people crediting your look to the “work” you had done, Ultherapy may be the right alternative for you.
Ultherapy involves no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside. You can go about your day after a single, 60-90 minute in-office procedure. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds over time. Results unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months, including lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. While the procedure does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.
