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.
Ultherapy uses tried-and-true ultrasound technology, which has been FDA-cleared to lift the neck, under the chin, the brow, and the décolleté. By directing the ultrasound energy precisely at the areas in need of tightening, Ultherapy stimulates the growth of new collagen.
Collagen is a natural protein that provides the elasticity and tone in youthful skin. As we age, the collagen in our skin loses its strength and diminishes. Ultherapy works by jump-starting the collagen-production deep below the skin. Because your body builds collagen over the months following your Ultherapy treatment, your results appear naturally and slowly.
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.
