Brow, Chin, Neck, Chest…the options are endless

Brow, Chin, Neck, Chest…the options are endless.  Ultherapy has been around for quite some time now, so most of us have heard of it before….but today, instead of just focusing on what Ulthera can do (and it can do some great things) we’re also going to focus on where we can use Ulthera.

Ultherapy is focused ultrasound energy delivered to the dermal and deep layers of the skin without affecting intervening tissue. Over a two to three month period, weak collagen is reorganized and strengthened with the growth of new collagen, which in turn tightens and lifts the skin. Unlike lasers and other technologies, Ultherapy avoids the surface area of the skin, delivering the appropriate energy at the right depths and temperature for collagen reproduction.

While Ultherapy is traditionally used for the lower face/jawline and neck the possibilities are almost endless with other areas of the body.  One of our favorite non-traditional uses and most popular areas is love the knees.  There aren’t very many treatment options for helping the lost laxity in the upper knee area, but Ulthera is a great solution to reboot the collagen, tighten, and lift.  For optimal results, we recommend Ulthera in combination with an injectable filler.

Another non-traditional treatment area for Ulthera is the arms.  When you’re dealing with mild laxity, Ulthera does a great job of subtly tightening the area, giving you that confidence in your sleeveless tops.

Ultherapy can also be used for treatment around the mouth, upper brow area for a lift, and chest to help with wrinkling.  Like we said, the possibilities are almost endless.  If you have any areas of concern, don’t hesitate to ask us about them at your complimentary cosmetic consult.
