Ultherapy® is the only non-surgical FDA-cleared procedure that enhances the appearance of upper chest lines and wrinkles while lifting the neck, chin, and brow. By using ultrasound imaging, energy is directed precisely where it is most beneficial, resulting in natural-looking results that improve with time.
The Ultherapy® procedure is painless and requires no anesthesia or downtime. In the first hour of your appointment at Age-Less, Weigh-Less, we will place a small device that uses ultrasound imaging on your skin. Energy will then be directed below the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production. The entire procedure takes about 60 minutes, depending on the size of your area being treated.
You can expect some tightness, tingling, or numbness immediately following your Ultherapy® treatment, but these sensations disappear within hours after treatment. Most patients return to everyday activities immediately.
How Is Ultherapy® Different From Other Cosmetic Procedures?
The only non-surgical cosmetic procedure that targets the foundational layer of facial tissue that doctors address in surgery with ultrasound is Ultherapy®. Using ultrasound also allows us to see the layers of skin we are treating, allowing us to deliver energy precisely where it will be most effective.
Is Ultherapy® Safe?
Yes, it is. Using ultrasound energy in medical imaging has been around for a long time. Additionally, the FDA has cleared the procedure following successful clinical studies and has been performed tens of thousands of times worldwide without any significant complications.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Ultherapy®?
How Long Do Results From Ultherapy® Typically Last?
After a year following Ultherapy®, patients still have fresh collagen, but their skin continues to age. Keeping pace with the aging process can be accomplished with annual touch-ups.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients with a fair amount of laxity may need more than one treatment, while most patients only require one treatment. Touch-up treatments every year can slow down skin aging.
