Ultherapy: An Excellent Choice for a Nonsurgical Lift

While we specialize in a variety of surgical techniques that rejuvenate the face, we’re also proud to offer completely noninvasive options like Ultherapy. Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared skin tightening treatment that utilizes ultrasound waves to stimulate deep tissue remodeling. Because it is non-invasive, it does not require downtime. Many people schedule Ultherapy during their lunch hour or in the middle of a busy week. As they go about their business, the effects of ultrasound energy build in the same layer of tissue targeted during a facelift. As a result, the treatment area gradually tightens into improved contours.

How Ultherapy Works

The intent behind Ultherapy treatment is to stimulate the production of healthy new collagen. The body stops making this vital protein to the extent it is needed sometime during our twenties. Gradually, the skin loosens and thins, resulting in problems like jowls and a turkey neck. An ample supply of collagen is vital to a youthful face shape. Ultherapy targets the deep layers of tissue first by finding the ideal depth using ultrasound imaging. Then, sending ultrasound waves into that ideal depth of tissue, the device targets the face for remodeling at its very foundation. The device is based on the same type of ultrasound energy that has been used in the medical field for decades. We understand its characteristics and know how to employ ultrasound safely and strategically to get the best results.

Patients tolerate Ultherapy treatments quite well. Some discomfort may occur over areas of bone, such as the jawline. The area may also feel tingly and warm as ultrasound energy heats the deeper layers of tissue beneath the skin. That said, the procedure does not warrant the use of anesthesia for comfort. Shorter treatments, as well, like an Ultherapy brow lift, do not last long enough for energy to build up significant heat in the tissue. For this reason, shorter treatments are said to be more comfortable than, say, a full face and neck treatment. Regardless, we perform Ultherapy treatments in a way that fosters optimal comfort for each patient.
