Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound to generate new collagen deep within the skin, over time. Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment option for those who are beginning to see early signs of aging.
The length of the 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.
After your Ultherapy® Treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you.
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.
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual's collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body's natural aging process.
A good Ultherapy 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
