Skin Tightening Treatments

Skin Tightening Treatments

Ultherapy® or Skin Tightening is an FDA-Approved non-surgical treatment that reverses the signs of aging by lifting the skin and smoothing away wrinkles on the brow, face, neck and décolletage.  Until recently, tightening and smoothing skin of the face and neck could only be achieved through surgical procedures life facelift and laser resurfacing.

Surgical procedures however, require downtime for recovery, the need for anaesthesia, and possible complications.  Ultherapy, a non-invasive ultrasound treatment, eliminates the need for invasive treatments for many of our patients.

How Ultherapy Works

Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the kin by stimulating collagen production deep within the tissue in a completely non-invasive manner.  This tightening effect is clinically significant and continues to improve the appearance of the skin over two to three months.  The ultrasound energy bypasses the outer layer of skin and can be used on any skin type.

The Ultherapy procedure is relatively simple.  The treatment only takes between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the treatment area.  You will feel ultrasound energy being delivered, which can feel warm, but with the latest ultrasound visualisations capabilities, the exact location to place the energy can be determined to minimize any discomfort.

Who is a Candidate for Ultherapy

You may be a good candidate for Ultherapy if you have mild to moderate laxity of the skin in the areas of the neck, jawline, eyebrow or chest.  Ultherapy cannot reproduce the effects of a facelift, but for a patient who is not ready to undergo surgery, it is an excellent procedure to achieve remarkably younger looking results.

Ultherapy Recovery

One of the main benefits of choosing Ultherapy over surgical facial rejuvenation options is that it requires little to no recovery time.  You will likely experience some initial redness and mild swelling may occur.  In rare cases temporary bruising or numbness is noticeable, but these effects resolve within a few days.

Over the next two to three months, you can relax and enjoy the smoothing and tightening effects of Ultherapy.
