Ultherapy: Firmer Skin without the Surgery
- Posted on: May 2 2016
Gone are the days of invasive surgical procedures for skin rejuvenation. New cosmetic treatments are trading out the knife for the wand with more options than ever, especially when it comes to the age-rewinding effects of skin tightening.
Leading that trend is Ultherapy, an ultrasound procedure that supporters compare to the old-fashioned facelift – without the downsides of surgery. Called the “invisible facelift” – it’s about as good as you can get without going under the knife.
The procedure tightens and lifts skin by targeting the underlying tissues with precisely directed sound waves that stimulate collagen into a rebuilding process. And that process means firmer skin wherever the treatment is used. It is the only noninvasive treatment FDA approved to lift the skin on the eyebrows, neck, chin and improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
North Dallas Dermatology Associates is designated a “Center of Excellence” for the procedure, which means the practice is one of only a few national teaching sites as designated by Ulthera.
Read on for the basics on this standout treatment . . .
You can return to work or other activities immediately, and the entire procedure takes only 60 -120 minutes or slightly more, depending on the areas treated.
You Only Need One Treatment Every Two Years
Ultherapy’s dramatic results often have patients asking when they can come back for more, but most people only need one treatment every two years to maintain the correction.
It’s Noninvasive and Versatile
Because Ultherapy tackles skin laxity, it can be used as an added boost for other procedures such as Botox and fillers that address the signs of early aging, or alone for patients who want to avoid needles.
It Gets Better With Time
Because Ultherapy activates your body’s natural collagen stimulation process, it’s unlikely you’ll see instant results, but when they do start to show up – about 8-12 weeks post-procedure – they are noticeable. Patients report improvements that continue for up to six months.
