Ultherapy is a revolutionary and minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment that can help reverse the signs of aging. By using ultrasound technology, Ultherapy works to stimulate the body’s production of collagen, which helps tighten and smooth the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Ultherapy has been approved by the FDA for use on the face, brows, neck and chest areas. It is a great option for those looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lift drooping skin, and eliminate sagging skin in these areas – all with minimal downtime.
The Ultherapy treatment typically takes between 30-90 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. During the Ultherapy procedure, the practitioner will use a hand piece to deliver heat energy and ultrasound technology to stimulate collagen production within the deeper layers of skin. The amount of treatment lines and depth of treatment is customizable to each patient’s specific needs.
Here is a general estimate of the amount of treatment lines needed for each area.
- Upper Face (Eye Area & Brow): 250-400 lines
- Full Face (Eye Area, Cheeks, & Jaw): 800-1100 lines
- Lower Face (Cheeks & Jaw): 600 lines
- Full Face & Neck (Eye Area, Cheeks, Jaw & Neck): 1200 lines
- Full Neck (Jaw & Neck): 550-600 lines
- Chest/Decolletage: 800 lines
Risks associated with Ultherapy are minimal, and may include mild redness or swelling that usually lasts for only a few hours. Most patients report seeing results after the Ultherapy treatment, with the full effects taking place within 2-3 months as new collagen is produced.
Overall, Ultherapy is a safe and effective way to reverse signs of aging without surgery or downtime. With Ultherapy, you can enjoy natural looking results that last for years!
