Ultherapy is a revolutionary new technology that is used to firm and tighten skin on the neck and face. It’s a proven option for those who aren’t ready or aren’t in need of surgery. At Advanced Life Clinic, the use of Ultherapy allows us to offer a no downtime option for improving lax skin in a meaningful way.
What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive lifting procedures that firms and tones your skin from deep within resulting in noticeably tighter and better-fitting skin.
How does it work?
It uses high intensity Ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin where collagen is formed; causing the body to increase its production of collagen. Ultrasound is capable of penetrating deeper into the tissues without causing any burning or damage to the upper layers of the skin the way Lasers can. The sound waves can be directed deep into tissue and address the same issues that surgery can. In addition to the visible effects of lifting and tightening, Ultherapy also helps promote the production of collagen which allows skin to retain its youthful appearance. More and more research now centers on using Ultrasound energy to tighten skin, remove cellulite an reduce fat.
What areas can be treated?
Ultherapy works best on the area under the chin known as the ‘turkey neck” and the lower face area know as “jowls”. The treatment is also effective on the mid to lower neck to help reduce the wrinkles and sagging that occur there over time. The brow and crows feet areas are also treated to lift the brow and help open the eyes.
How is the procedure done?
The procedure takes about an hour to an hour and a half depending on how much area is treated. Some discomfort is involved but it is very well controlled with ibuprofen or a light pain reliever. There is no swelling and only very minimal redness after the procedure. Patients can return to work or activities immediately.
How soon will I see results?
Results are evident in six to eight weeks . Only one treatment is typically needed but additional treatments may be needed every three to four years due to the normal aging process.
