Ultherapy is the only FDA- Approved procedure to utilize non-invasive, non-surgical techniques to tighten the brow, under the neck and along the jawline, as well as the décolleté. At The Dermatology and Laser Group we also use the technology in innovative “off-label” ways to tighten and lift the skin in other areas of the body including the upper arms, abdomen, and other areas of the body. Using gentle ultrasound, Ultherapy targets your body’s natural collagen-building ability to tighten, creating natural, noticeable results that develop over time.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy works deep below the skin, creating a stronger, tighter structural foundation, as well as noticeable surface tightening, generating more profound results than were previously available without surgical intervention. Similar to the ultrasounds used during pregnancy, Ultherapy allows your surgeon to visualize the distribution of sound waves and target the areas that will create the most profound impact for your face and neck.
Ultherapy is different- there’s no downtime, fillers, injections, or radical changes – just natural tightening from your body’s immune response to gentle, time-tested ultrasound. Similar to the way a vigorous workout leaves you sore the next day, Ultherapy creates micro-damage to the underlying tissues, which helps your body respond faster with rebuilding collagen and tightening throughout the area.
Results from Ultherapy are not immediate, though you may experience a boost in collagen production directly following your treatment. Full results will develop over time, usually 2-3 months, and sometimes as long as 6 months out. Natural, slower-developing results means you won’t look radically different over night, and no one will need to know you’ve had anything done.
