Ultherapy is ultrasound energy that lifts & tightens the skin and it's available at Cosmetic Laser Center!
Ultherapy - The best non-surgical face & neck lifting!
Live your life. Forget your age. Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. Through the ultrasound imaging with Ultherapy, energy is delivered precisely to the place where it will benefit you most—for natural-looking results that improve over time. Ultherapy is the only nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedure that can specifically target and strengthen the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address in surgery. The ability to treat not just the skin but its underlying support helps to ensure both safe and satisfying results, with no downtime.
How does Ultherapy work?
As a natural protein, collagen works to give skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. That’s where Ultherapy steps in and lifts up, through ultrasound therapy. Ultherapy works by gently heating the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.
What can I expect during my Ultherapy treatment?
During your one-on-one consultation with our expert technician at Cosmetic Laser Center, we will assess your skin, address your concerns, and determine if you are a candidate for Ultherapy.
There are no pre- or post-treatment skin care requirements associated with Ultherapy, so once you book your personalized Ultherapy procedure, you can relax!
After cleansing the skin and identifying the specific areas to be treated, we will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin.
During treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited under the skin, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but you may experience the sensation of heat and/or tingling while the energy is being delivered.
Ultherapy is customized, so the length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while treatment for the upper chest (or décolletage) takes approximately 30 minutes.
You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any post-treatment restrictions or requirements.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature.
Other common questions about Ultherapy:
Q. Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the chest, are signals a patient might be a candidate. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically, or financially. There also are younger people who want to "stay ahead of the game," as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.
Q. Is Ultherapy safe?
Ultherapy is a proven treatment with a well-established safety profile. It is currently marketed worldwide in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments performed globally to date. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.
Q. What is the average treatment cost for Ultherapy?
Pricing for an Ultherapy treatment can vary, depending upon the areas being treated. Treatment will be customized to meet each patient’s needs, and exact pricing can be discussed during consultation meetings.
Q. When will I see results?
The proven results of Ultherapy are clear, appearing over two to three months as new collagen works to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow—as well as smooth skin on the upper chest. Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual. While results appear over two to three months, they can last up to a year or more. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future booster treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.
