Kick start your collagen

Begin 2017 off right with a kick start to your collagen!  Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest with little to no downtime, and NO surgery! Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.  We’ve had Ultherapy in our office for years, and it’s still one of our favorite and most popular procedures with consistent results. It was also a Beauty Choice award winner, so we aren’t the only one’s who are seeing the benefits.

How does Ultherapy work? The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery—without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Non-surgical Ultherapy bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.  It’s kind of like a workout for your face….only the Ulthera does all of the heavy lifting.

When do I see results?   Some patients may see some initial improvements in the treatment areas, but optimal results are seen in a 3-6 month period of time when the collagen has a full chance the recover and rebuild.  This ensures that results are gradual and natural looking.

Downtime?  While the actual Ultherapy treatment may cause you to be temporarily red following the procedure, there is no real downtime incurred.  That being said, to make our patients more comfortable during the procedure, we recommend injectable numbing prior (which can give some downtime if bruising occurs), but makes most of our patients a lot more comfortable during the procedure.

Still have some questions, or want to know more?  Take advantage of our complimentary cosmetic consultations, where we will take the time to show you before and after photos, give you an overview on what to expect from the procedure, and evaluate if we think you would be a good candidate.  Call or email our office today to schedule your appointment!
