What is ultherapy skin tightening?

Ultherapy skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift the skin in the neck, chin and brows, as well as improve lines and wrinkles found on the upper chest using ultrasound therapy. Through the ultrasound therapy provided by Ultherapy treatment, the heat energy is able to go deeper under the skin than other non-invasive therapy options to stimulate collagen production, which tightens the skin. The ultrasound imaging gives practitioners the ability to see the layers of skin that they are treating to know that they are targeting the right area for the best results. Ultherapy is a quick procedure that should take less than 90 minutes depending on the area to be treated and has little to no downtime as it is a non-invasive procedure. Collagen regeneration is supported and stimulated by ultrasound energy at the right temperature that is focused at different depths of the target areas. By stimulating the collagen and elastic tissue found in the skin, muscle and superficial wrinkles, patients should see results of fewer wrinkles, firmer skin and less sagging.

Does ultherapy tighten skin?

Yes, Ultherapy tightens skin that is loose or sagging by stimulating collagen production and the elastic tissue that is found in the skin and muscle, as well as superficial wrinkles. The non-invasive procedure stimulates these natural productions that slow down over time through the use of focused ultrasound energy at the right temperature for maximum, safe collagen regeneration. The production and regeneration of collagen can counteract some of the common signs of aging such as sagging skin, wrinkles on the chest, neck and face, and drooping in the eyebrow area, causing the skin to look firmer, giving the patient a more youthful overall look. To fully understand how Ultherapy can work for you and understand what results you can expect to see from treatment, book a consultation with a certified Ultherapy practitioner to see if this is the right treatment for you.

Is ultherapy effective?

Ultherapy has proven to be an effective treatment for skin tightening and is gaining in popularity and availability as people learn more about it. Results will depend on your individual situation, depending on such factors as progression of skin sagging and wrinkles you are looking to have tightened and reduced, as well as how quickly your body is able to produce new collagen after treatment. Patients can expect to start seeing initial results from their Ultherapy treatment within a few days of their treatment and continue to see improvements in their skin up to three months after the treatment. Ultherapy is also a relatively safe procedure due to its non-invasive nature. The downtime is minimal, if any, with patients being able to return to work and the rest of their daily activities, including the gym, right away. Patients may experience feelings of heat and tingling at the treated areas, but these typically pass soon after the procedure is completed. Short-term side effects can include redness, tingling, swelling or tenderness in the affected areas, with these typically clearing up within hours of the procedure being completed.

How long do skin tightening results last?

Skin tightening results will vary by individual. No skin tightening solution is permanent as our bodies will naturally continue to age regardless of the treatment performed. Ultherapy results will continue to last so long as the body continues to produce collagen at an increased rate to slow down the signs of aging. Eventually though the collagen production will slow down as the natural process of aging takes back over. At that point, patients can decide if they want to pursue additional treatments based on their progression with aging skin and how their body responded to the first treatment. During your consultation with a Ultherapy practitioner, you can discuss the expected longevity of your results.
