Ultherapy Nonsurgical Facelift
If you are looking for a non-invasive cosmetic treatment to improve your skin, Ultherapy® may be the solution for you! We welcome you to contact Skintology MedSpa by Dr. Jennifer Walden at (212) 832-2225 to learn more about Ultherapy in New York, NY, and schedule your appointment with our experienced Ultherapy experts.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy® is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that works to lift and tighten your skin naturally using ultrasound technology. Ultherapy not only targets deeper layers of skin tissue to improve your appearance but allows our cosmetic experts to see the layers of tissue that are being targeted to ensure a more precise treatment.
Benefits Of Ultherapy
Benefits of Ultherapy include:
- No needles or incisions
- No downtime following treatment
- A completely comfortable and non-invasive procedure
Candidates For Ultherapy
If you have skin that looks and feels less firm, a lowered eyebrow line, sagging under the chin, fine lines or wrinkles on the chest, or loose skin on the neck, you are a good candidate for Ultherapy.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy works by bypassing the surface of the skin to deliver ultrasound energy to the treatment area at exactly the right depth and temperature to stimulate collagen production in the foundations of your skin. Ultherapy is often recommended to:
- Lift skin on the neck and eyebrows, and under the chin
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Firm the brow, chin, neck, and chest
Our cosmetic experts will begin by cleansing your skin. Ultrasound gel is then applied to the targeted area, and the smooth applicator is placed against the skin. We then use ultrasound imaging to see deep within your skin to confirm the optimal placement of ultrasound energy. This ultrasound energy is then delivered beneath the surface of your skin. The length of your session will depend on the size of the treated area and your individual treatment plan.
How Long Does An Ultherapy Treatment Take?
The length of your procedure depends on the area which you are having treated. Face and neck procedures take 60-90 minutes, while chest treatments take about 30 minutes.
Your skin may appear flushed immediately following treatment, and you may experience slight swelling, tingling, tenderness, or bruising and numbness on small areas of skin. These effects are temporary and will subside within a day or so.
How Does Ultherapy Differ From Laser Skin Treatments?
Unlike other cosmetic treatments, Ultherapy uses sound energies that move past the fine layers of skin to penetrate deeper. Laser rely on light energy, which can only treat the outermost layers of skin. Laser treatments are also not FDA-cleared for lifting and tightening skin.
What Is The Difference Between Ultherapy And A Facelift?
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment and requires no injections to the face and no downtime for recovery. Facelifts do require some time for recovery and do not treat deep layers of tissue.
Why Does Offering Ultherapy Make Skintology Medical Spa Unique?
Ultherapy is one of the only non-invasive procedures cleared by the FDA. It is also the only cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasound imaging to allow our doctors to see deep layers of tissue during treatment in order to tailor where the ultrasound energy is targeted.
Is Ultherapy Safe?
Ultherapy is a very safe treatment and has been used in over half a million treatments worldwide. Ultrasound energy has also been used in the medical field for more than 50 years.
Side Effects Of Ultherapy
There are a few side effects of Ultherapy treatment you may experience for a few hours following your procedure. These include some redness, slight swelling, and tenderness to the touch. These side effects should disappear within a few hours.
