NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT AND SKIN TIGHTENING

There 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

Ultherapy works by sending ultrasound energy to the treatment area, most often the brow, chin, neck, or chest. These ultrasonic waves create a gentle warming effect in the targeted area.

The ultrasound energy stimulates the facial tissue.  This provides an immediate and noticeable tightening effect that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Over the next few months, Ultherapy also increases the production of collagen, giving the skin a youthful more toned appearance.

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.

Tighten your Jawline with Ultherapy

Ultherapy is especially effective at tightening the loose skin under the chin and around the jawline.  Stimulating the production of collagen in this area can give you a firmer, more toned appearance around the neckline.  

Because Ultherapy works using your body’s own natural collagen instead of fillers or injections, the results will look natural.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultherapy

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that has been approved by the FDA.  It tightens and lifts the skin and smooths lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy uses micro-focused, ultrasonic waves to lift and tighten loose skin without any recovery time.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to generate a thermal effect beneath the skin in the targeted area. This encourages a person’s body’s to produce more collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that makes the skin feel firm and toned.

The length of the Ultherapy treatment process varies depending on the size and location of the area that is being targeted during a session. Face and neck procedures take between an hour to an hour and a half. While chest treatments take about 30 minutes and eyebrows treatments take 15 minutes.

The loose, sagging skin that gathers on the neck, under the chin is sometimes referred to as a “Turkey Neck.”  The loss of elasticity in the skin, especially in this area, is one of the most common signs of aging.  Ultherapy can treat this issue without the need for surgery by firming and tightening the skin in this problem area.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound waves to bypass the surface level of the skin and treat the tissue underneath. Most non-surgical laser treatments use light energy, which cannot reach this depth. While these laser treatments can lead to superficial benefits, they lack the ability to lift and tone the skin in the way that Ultherapy is able to.
 

Good candidates for Ultherapy are people with slightly loose skin on the neck, sagging jowls, a lowered brow, or wrinkles on the upper chest. Ultherapy alone cannot repair severe sun damage and skin discoloration.

Because Ultherapy relies on a person’s own collagen production, individual results may vary.  However, in most cases, the benefits of Ultherapy can last up to a year or more.  These results depend on the age of the patient and their unique biochemistry.

Most patients report some mild discomfort during the procedure.  Although this discomfort only occurs during the actual treatment process and does not usually linger on afterward. This level of discomfort is typically treated with an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen.  In some cases, prescription pain medication can be used to dull this sensation.
