Ultherapy: Summertime Lift

Are you looking for the perfect treatment to get you through the summer?  Ultherapy is one of our non-invasive procedures that lifts treatment areas like the eye, neck, chin, and chest, without the downtime of surgery.  During the summer, we like to stay away from using lasers due to all of the risks involved like hyper-pigmentation, for example.  Since Ultherapy is an ultrasound device, not a laser, there are no restrictions to the time of year for treatment!

How it works:

Ultherapy, also known as the non-invasive lift, is currently the only FDA approved device for a lifting indication.  It delivers focused ultrasound energy to the dermal and deep layers of the skin without affecting intervening tissue. The weak collagen is reorganized and strengthened with the growth of new collagen, resulting in a gradual tightening and lifting over a three-month period of time.  This no downtime procedure gives patients lasting results seen after just one treatment, making it one of our favorites.

It isn’t just the neck:

While Ultherapy is a great treatment for the sagging neck, it doesn’t stop there!  Ulthera is also used to treat around the eyes, chin, and recently added décolleté or chest area to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

With lasting results, minimal to no downtime, and our customized treatment packages available to suite your individual needs, what isn’t there to love about Ulthera? We’re proud to have been the first practice to introduce this amazing procedure to Wilmington, NC and are looking forward to the exciting things it has to offer all of our patients! Don’t forget to take advantage of our free consults to learn more about Ulthera and determine if it’s the right procedure for you.
