ultherapy before and afterThere once was a time when the only way to tighten your aging, sagging skin was to go under the knife. Now, with advancements in ultrasound technology, you can lift and tighten your face for a younger look without needing surgery. Ultherapy is a newer, non-surgical ultrasound procedure cleared by the FDA for providing men and women with what is being called a non-invasive facelift.

How Does Ultherapy Work?

Ultherapy’s secret is ultrasound energy. This non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment uses focused ultrasound energy to stimulate your body’s own natural healing process. Without harming the surface of your skin, the deeper structural layers of your skin are restored, resulting in a lifting and tightening effect for your face and neck. Your Ultherapy treatment with Wave Plastic Surgery will take only about an hour to complete.

A Quick Look at how the Ultherapy Treatment Looks

BodyTite is a highly effective and safe procedure that uses radiofrequency to essentially melt fat through radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL).

RFAL is achieved by inserting an electrode on the BodyTite machine into the treatment area. RF energy is that passed between the internal electrode (that is inserted in the skin) and an additional electrode that sits on the surface of the skin.

This procedure is safe, and patients are kept comfortable the entire time. Before the electrodes are inserted the patient will receive a tumescent injection which not only numbs but also ensures optimal results from the procedure.

Treatment time is relatively quick (about 30-45 mins) but will vary based on the number of treatment areas. Results are typically seen in about three months and will continue to get better over time.

How long does it Take to See Results from Ultherapy?

You may notice a visible initial boost in the look of your face right after your treatment, but the results will only continue to get better over time. The effect of the ultrasound energy stimulates your body’s production of collagen and elastin, naturally filling out surface wrinkles and tightening areas of sagging or drooping skin. Your skin will gradually appear younger and tighter over the course of 2-3 months, helping to improve issues such as jowls, facial wrinkles, neck bands, and sagging skin.

Is Ultherapy right for me?

It is important to have realistic expectations when considering Ultherapy. Because it is a non-invasive alternative to surgery, it is intended for men and women with less severe signs of aging. Those experiencing significant amounts of sagging skin and deep wrinkles may not be able to achieve their desired results with Ultherapy. During your consultation, we will listen to your expectations and analyze your skin. In some cases, surgery may be the best option. A facelift or neck lift can provide you with the long-lasting results that you want.
