Discover the non-invasive cosmetic treatment that helps tighten skin while smoothing away wrinkles.
Collagen is a naturally occurring element in our bodies that is instrumental in keeping skin plump, firm and supple; however, as we get older, our bodies are no longer producing as much collagen, which causes our skin to loosen and sag. If you’ve just started to notice these changes, they may seem minor right now, but you should nip this issue in the bud rather than turning to more invasive treatments in the future. If so, our Pompano Beach and Tamarac, FL, dermatologists Dr. Melanie and Dr. David Hecker offer a non-surgical way to give your face the youthful lift it needs.
What is Ultherapy?
This treatment uses ultrasound technology to target the deeper layers of the skin (approximately 4.5mm deep, which is deeper than any cosmetic laser or radiofrequency treatments) to stimulate the production of collagen below the surface of the skin to tighten, lift and firm the skin of the face, neck, and chin while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Ultherapy is unique to other treatments that offer similar results because the system allows your cosmetic dermatologist the ability to determine precisely where the ultrasound energy should be administered, tailoring your treatment to your specific needs and goals. This simple treatment can take anywhere from 60-90 minutes.
When will I see results?
While some people swear that they see a difference right away, it takes a couple of months for the body to begin producing new collagen. Therefore it takes about 2-3 months before you’ll start to notice firmer and tighter skin, with full results taking up to 6 months to appear.
One treatment session is usually all that’s needed to get the results you want. Of course, nothing can stop us from aging, so results can’t last forever. Results can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years.
What are some benefits of Ultherapy?
One of the benefits of getting Ultherapy is that there is no downtime, so you can go right back to your daily routine right after treatment. We know that many people lead busy lives, and while they might love to get cosmetic treatments to improve the look of their skin, they often can’t afford to take time off. This is why Ultherapy is a great option for so many of our patients looking to refresh their appearance without surgery or treatments that require a long recovery time.
This is also a great option for someone who isn’t quite ready to take the plunge to get cosmetic surgery, since Ultherapy allows a more conservative approach to reducing and even eliminating the appearance of lines and wrinkles of the face, neck and chest.
