Ultherapy is an ultrasound guided treatment that is used to treat mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles around the jowls, under the chin, around the eyes, crow’s feet and above the forehead for a brow lift. Ultherapy works by administering ultrasound energy to specific depths of skin with precise ultrasound guidance, which causes tissue tightening and collagen production. Unlike Lasers, non-surgical Ultherapy can bypass the superficial skin to deliver ultrasound energy at the right depths at the right temperature so it is safe to have during the summer when sun exposure is difficult to avoid. There is no downtime so patients can go back to work or out to dinner the same day. Ultherapy skin rejuvenation treatment fits into our busy summer schedule. Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA- cleared to lift, tighten and tone the skin for a more rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
It can take 3-6 months to see the effects of the collagen production, so you will start to notice the amazing results just in time for the winter holidays.
