Ultherapy can help achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest. The non-invasive procedure that’s FDA cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the brow is now also approved for use to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
Ultherapy uses safe ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally – without surgery or downtime. How Ultherapy works is that it bypasses superficial skin to deliver a targeted amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure of its kind to use ultrasound imaging, which enables practitioners to see the layers of tissue being targeted during treatment and helps ensure that the energy is being deposited precisely where it will be most effective. This energy triggers a natural response underneath the skin, stimulating the body to naturally produce collagen, which strengthens weak collagen and produces fresh, new collagen.
Collagen helps support the skin’s strength, maintains the skin’s elasticity and is responsible for the replacement of dead skin cells. As we age, the production of collagen within our bodies slows down, leading to less elasticity and thin, dry skin. An increase in collagen levels within the body helps repair skin damage by regenerating new skin cells that help reveal new, fresh-looking skin, tighten sagging skin and fill in fine lines and wrinkles.
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone who has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. This can include a lowered eyebrow, loose skin on the neck, sagging skin underneath the chin and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy will lift and tighten the skin in these areas, resulting in an overall refreshed look.
A typical Ultherapy procedure lasts anywhere from 60-90 minutes. Additionally Ultherapy can enhance the skin tone and texture around the mouth and eyes with the Ultherapy Enhancement Treatment. This add-on service can be built into any standard Ultherapy treatment by adding a third layer of lift, treating closer to the skin’s surface. The Ultherapy Enhanced Treatment is used for enhanced lifting around the mouth and eyes, provides smoothing and toning of lax skin in these delicate areas and is optimal for clients with very thin skin. After receiving this treatment, clients have reported tightening in the upper and lower eyelid area, stating that their eyes look bigger and brighter with the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles only after one treatment!
Ultherapy is also the only non-invasive treatment specifically indicated by the FDA to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. This service can either be a stand-alone Ultherapy treatment or included as an add-on to the Ultherapy lifting treatment administered on the face and neck. Within 30 minutes, Ultherapy can stimulate the natural formation of collagen and elastin in the skin’s foundation to gradually smooth chest wrinkles.
What kinds of results are expected from Ultherapy? After an Ultherapy treatment, clients may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as the body naturally regenerates collagen. Most clients will enjoy fresh, young collagen for at least a year after their treatment. Even though Ultherapy produces new collagen on the inside, the body’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
