For those seeking to obtain a more youthful appearance without undergoing a surgical procedure such as a facelift, Ultherapy may be an excellent solution. This non-invasive facelift gently heats the tissue, stimulating the body’s collagen-building process and creating visible, natural-looking results from a single session.
Using focused, intense ultrasound energy, Ultherapy can be used to tighten skin on the brow, neck, jawline, and chin. It may also improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.
What Are the Benefits of Ultherapy?
There are a number of benefits to undergoing an Ultherapy procedure at Vibrant Rejuvenation. These include:
Fully Customizable Treatment
An Ultherapy treatment is a fully customizable non-invasive facelift, allowing you to design your treatment to meet your needs. We can address various areas of the skin that you’re seeking to tighten and tone.
In addition, the Ultherapy device may be adjusted to determine how deeply it penetrates the skin. You may also add treatment options such as Botox or dermal fillers to further enhance your results.
There are no incisions or sutures involved in an Ultherapy treatment. It’s an effective alternative to a facelift and does not require any downtime. You’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure. As an added benefit, it can generally be performed in under an hour.
Helps Reduce the Signs of Aging
A decline in collagen production with age can lead to skin drooping, which may make you appear older than you really are. Ultherapy can help you maintain a more youthful, vibrant appearance by tightening loose skin and stimulating the production of collagen.
While some other options may require downtime or appear less natural, Ultherapy leads to natural-looking results. The procedure allows the tissue to tighten over time as new collagen grows. Your results will only enhance with time, with the maximum benefits peaking between three to six months.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Ultherapy?
This procedure may be used by anyone with mild to moderate skin laxity. Good candidates are usually between 30 and 55 years old and have begun to notice that their skin appears less firm. Signs of skin laxity include a lowered eyebrow line, sagging neck skin, and noticeable jowls along the jawline.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive facelift that can treat each of these issues, and it can be used on any skin tone.
Candidates who are beginning to see the effects of lax skin elasticity and sun damage will often see the best results. Combining Ultherapy with other treatments, including lasers, injectables, and other skin-lifting procedures, often works well and provides optimal results.
What Happens During Ultherapy Treatment?
Prior to undergoing Ultherapy, you’ll meet with one of our trained team members to discuss your ultimate treatment goals. We’ll ask you for your full medical history and perform a full examination of your face to determine whether Ultherapy is a good solution for you.
During the consultation, we’ll fully explain the procedure as well as how to best care for your skin in the following weeks. We can also answer any questions that you may have about Ultherapy, and we may recommend combining multiple treatments to obtain optimal results.
The length of the procedure will depend on your individual treatment plan. A face-and-neck procedure usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes 30 minutes.
During the treatment, your skin will be numbed with a topical numbing agent. Then, an ultrasound conductive gel is applied to the skin. Our staff will move a handheld device across your skin’s surface to transmit the ultrasound energy to the deeper skin layers. The energy enters your skin at precisely the right depth to jump-start collagen production.
Ultherapy can adjust the treatment depth with different transducers to deliver energy to specific areas of the tissue. The depth will vary according to your personal skin quality and thickness.
Following the treatment, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities. We’ll discuss the appropriate aftercare for you during your consultation.
How Soon Do Ultherapy Results Appear?
There will be some visible initial results immediately following the treatment. However, you’ll see the most benefits over the next six months as your body responds to the kickstart for collagen production. Collagen takes time to form; thus, the best benefits will be seen in time.
Results from Ultherapy may last between one and two years. A combination of good skin care and a healthy lifestyle can help extend the results. Since the natural aging process can’t be completely stopped, we recommend follow-up Ultherapy treatments to maintain your results over time.
When Should I Consider an Ultherapy Treatment?
Anyone who is beginning to experience the signs of aging through a loss of laxity in the skin may be a candidate for Ultherapy. This treatment has some preventative benefits, and patients who would like to gain slimming, tightening, and lifting through Ultherapy can potentially benefit from the treatment.
Other add-on options, such as dermal fillers and Botox, can help to further enhance the benefits obtained from Ultherapy. The machine has multiple attachments used to allow for superficial and deep penetration, resulting in a firming, wrinkle-smoothing, and contouring effect.
