Ultherapy Treatments: Ultrasound to Tighten Sagging Skin
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin around the brow, chin, neck, and chest. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Unlike traditional cosmetic procedures, non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This triggers a response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces new collagen. Results appear over two to three months as new collagen works to lift and tighten the skin.
Ultherapy treatments target the sagging and loose skin around the brow, chin, neck, and chest and help tighten and firm the areas.
Host Kathie Lee explains how when women age, they focus on treating only their faces and completely forget about their necks and chins. Now, there is non-invasive Ultherapy treatments that lift the skin on the brow and neck to give you a more youthful appearance.
Ultherapy is the perfect antiaging solution for adult men and women of all ages. A good candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest.
Host Kathie Lee turns to Dr. Patricia Wexler to learn about the Ultherapy treatments that lift & tighten the skin on the neck and under the chin.
After cleansing the skin, your Ultherapy specialist will apply the ultrasound gel and place the smooth treatment applicator against your skin. Next, your specialist will use Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging to see deep within the skin in order to determine the optimal placement of the treatment energy. Then your specialist will deliver the focused ultrasound energy beneath the skin’s surface.
During the treatment, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels can vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the energy is being delivered.
The length of your treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
With Ultherapy, there is no downtime! You can return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure without any restrictions or requirements. Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary.
Some patients see improvement right after their Ultherapy treatment, but the real results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last depends on your own biology. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
