Have you ever looked into the mirror and asked yourself, “What happened to you?! Where did those forehead wrinkles come from? When did those crow’s feet sneak up on your eyes? And, why does your neck look loose and flabby?” Once you start to notice the signs of aging, it is hard to ignore them. It seems to be all that you can see when peering into a mirror. When people first discover that their age is creeping onto their faces, they usually are too young to consider jumping into a full traditional facelift. However, they are ready to explore less invasive treatments to reduce the signs of aging. That’s where Ultherapy comes in to save the day!
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin and naturally increase collagen production. It is the only non-invasive, FDA cleared procedure that lifts the skin on the neck, under the chin, on the eyebrow, and also improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy to penetrate the deep layers of the skin. This helps it to deliver energy to the optimal depths, temperature, and precision in order to initiate a natural healing response in the layers of the skin. This ultrasound energy causes the production of fresh, new collagen. New collagen then helps build a fresher, well-supported skin structure which will leave your skin looking younger, firmer, and smoother over time.
What Is An Ultherapy Treatment Like?
The typical treatment lasts anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the severity of your concerns in those areas. The Ultherapy device is placed on your skin and your provider will use an ultrasound viewer to adjust the device to the best settings for your treatment. The device is then passed over the skin of the area being treated. Some patients have reported feeling heat and tingling during the treatment. These sensations typically subside very soon after the treatment is completed.
Most patients tolerate these sensations very well without pain relievers, but if the pain is a concern for you, your provider will be happy to discuss that with you during your consultation. Any redness or discomfort usually disappears within hours of the treatment. Because the treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime at all, the majority of patients are able to schedule their Ultherapy treatment and then immediately return to their daily schedules.
Ultherapy Consultations Available
When Will I See Results?
Patients will almost immediately notice that their skin feels tighter which improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because new collagen is being formed, patients will notice improvements in their skin for 3 to 6 months after the treatment as the new collagen builds and rejuvenates the skin. Over time, the skin will look and feel smoother, firmer, and younger-looking.
Dr. Sliwowicz gets straight to the point and doesn’t engage in small talk. I really like that. He is very knowledgeable in his field of study. The nurses/estheticians at this clinic are very kind and welcoming as well. Whole area is very sanitary and well-kept.
