Ultrasound Skin Tightening with Ultherapy Before & After Photos
Tighten Skin Over the Brows, Lower Face, Neck, Jowls, Chest, Knees, and Buttocks with Ultherapy
Ultherapy harnesses the power of microfocused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin over the brows, lower face, neck, jowls, chest, knees, and buttocks. It is unique in the skin tightening category as direct ultrasound visualization is conducted to “see” tissues during treatment, ensuring that the correct soft tissue planes are treated to deliver maximal skin improvement.
Ultherapy treatment targets tissue and skin planes that sag over time, delivering ultrasound energy that produces heat and stimulates collagen growth, leading to skin tightening over a 3- to 6-month period. Ultherapy targets and treats the connective tissue layer called SMAS, the same layer facial plastic surgeons address when performing a facelift. Although the results are not as dramatic, Ultherapy is considered a nonsurgical alternative to procedures such as browlifts, facelifts, and necklifts. The results of Ultherapy area FDA-cleared for 12 months duration, although many patients may experience improvement in skin laxity for 18-24 months.
Ultherapy delivered at Art of Skin MD is unique. Pain may be a concern upon researching this procedure, but we utilize three unique comfort strategies that set Ultherapy at our clinic apart from other healthcare providers. A combination of topical numbing, oral medication, and nerve blocks ensure treatment is extremely comfortable.
