Ultherapy® is the ONLY non–invasive procedure that’s FDA cleared to lift skin on the neck, brow and under the chin. This non-surgical face and neck treatment uses ultrasound to specifically target the deep structural skin tissues where collagen lives, stimulating the regrowth of fresh, new collagen. 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 ensures that the energy is being deposited precisely to where it will be most effective. The result is an overall tightening and gradual lifting of the skin, without the recovery and discomfort of surgery.
A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has "relaxed" to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Sagging skin on the eyelids, on the neck or under the chin, for instance, are often the first signs of “maturing” skin. Typically, those in their thirties and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates.
While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical face-lift, there are many people who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, either mentally, financially or logistically. There are also younger people who want to “stay ahead of the game” as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Ultherapy addresses mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face and neck. Specifically, by reconditioning and renewing the skin from within, Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes, and gives a more refreshed look overall. Ultherapy is also used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the neck and under the chin, addressing the “turkey gobbler” and “double chin,” which many patients are trying to eliminate.
