Our practice is among the first in our area to offer the new Ultherapy® procedure for lifting and toning loose, lax skin-without surgery! We use tried and true ultrasound to strengthen your skin from the inside out, in a completely non-invasive way. After just one treatment, with no downtime, your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifting appearance.
For the first time ever, Ultherapy enables practitioners to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually-and reliably-restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 – 3 months, as older collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
