First came surgery. Then fillers. Then lasers. Then BOTOX®. Now there’s Ultherapy®, a non-invasive face and neck treatment that immediately contracts tissue – and has completely revolutionized the skin-tightening category.
Ultherapy® is an ultrasound device that affords a degree of precision, control,
efficacy and consistency unrivaled by any other tissue-tightening systems to date. Using DeepSEE™ acoustic technology, the device allows direct visualization of the targeted areas of treatment – ensuring a consistent delivery of energy that will maximize efficacy and minimize the risks typically seen with other devices or surgery. Soundwaves are directed to the same muscles and deep connective tissue targeted during facelift surgery.
Without cutting or otherwise disrupting the skin’s surface, Ultherapy® heats the tissue to help lift, tighten and tone mild to moderately loose skin – often replacing or postponing more aggressive surgeries for the right candidates. It also boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin for a progressive improvement in suppleness and elasticity. Depending on the needs of the patient, most areas of the face and neck can either be treated all at once or section by section. In addition to firming skin on the neck and jawline, the treatment can be used to lift the brow and reduce excess skin on the eyelids.
Although patients are awake during the 30 to 60-minute treatment, they are usually mildly sedated to ensure ease and comfort. PFRANKMD™ offers a broad spectrum of sedative and analgesic options to help patients tolerate any procedural
discomfort. Ultherapy® requires no special or extensive recuperation, allowing patients to return to full activity the day after treatment.
Typically, patients will see results after a single Ultherapy® treatment. Some initial effects will be visible immediately, but the ultimate lifting will take place over a two to three-month period following the procedure. As with all of our procedures, Ultherapy® is performed by licensed medical professionals to ensure patient safety and efficacy. If you’re reluctant to get surgery, ask our medical staff about this completely non-invasive, no-downtime method for noticeably tightening mild to
moderately loose skin.
