I see patients in my office everyday who are at different stages of their aging process and are looking for ways to treat their areas of concern. One treatment I recommend regularly for my patients who aren’t ready for surgery is Ultherapy skin tightening. It’s a wonderful way to deliver powerful collagen boosting energy to the face causing a lifting, softening of fine lines, and overall tightening to the skin. For some, the investment of time and money for a full Ultherapy treatment can be significant. It often is something that needs to be planned for which can be frustrating for those that don’t want to delay their treatment and subsequent results. We have recently introduced into our practice a solution to this challenge with Ultherapy Focused Treatments. These “spot” treatments allow for patients to work on their trouble zones without having to invest in a full face Ultherapy treatment. These treatments are also ideal for Ultherapy patients who have been previously treated and want to continue to improve specific areas of concern.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on the neck, chin, brow, as well as soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. The device uses safe, time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy’s ultrasound is a form of mechanical energy that is significantly different than Light Lasers and Radio- Frequency energy. During Ultherapy, ultrasound it is micro-focused below the skin’s surface to cause precise, pin-point heating. Heat is only generated at the focal point, leaving the skin’s surface and intervening tissue unaffected. This pinpoint heat causes immediate collagen contraction, initiating aggressive collagen synthesis. Over 90-180 days, the wound-healing response stimulates long-term tissue remodeling and leads to further lifting and tightening. This new collagen will age with your body naturally supporting the facial tissue’s graceful aging.
How Do Focused Treatments Work?
With focused Ultherapy treatments, we can use the collagen boosting powers of the device to target specific areas of concern. The most popular focused treatments are Crow’s Feet, Brow, Lip, and Décolletage. Schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss if Ultherapy focused treatments are right for you!
