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.
Using ultrasound technology that tightens and lifts the skin, Ultherapy can reduce wrinkles on the forehead. It works by heating a small area of tissue to stimulate collagen production. This results in smoother-looking skin with less wrinkling. The treatment is minimally invasive so it’s safe for most patients. Most patients experience the effects of this treatment for 3 months at a time.
Ultherapy Skin Tightening
Natural results are achieved with Ultherapy without the need for surgery and downtime. Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy tightens and lifts the neck skin. The Ultherapy Skin Tightening procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete and is done in our office.
Ultherapy Brow Lift
The Ultherapy brow lift lifts the top eyelid using advanced and completely non-invasive ultrasound technology. This restorative technology smoothes forehead wrinkles while lifting and tightening sagging skin on the forehead and upper eyelids.
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®?
Ultherapy® is suitable for a broad range of people, but usually, people in their 30s and older are the best candidates.
