Ultherapy is a novel technology that delivers focused ultrasound energy to the deep layers of the skin, thereby resulting in the formation of new collagen, which lifts and tightens the skin over a period of three to six months. Many patients wonder, Can ultrasound energy really lift skin? Multiple randomized controlled trials since 2006 have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of this procedure, and to date 140,000 procedures have been performed worldwide for nonsurgical face, neck, and brow lifts.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that there is virtually no downtime. It’s a lunch-hour procedure and you can return to work and other normal activities the same day. Ultherapy is, however, not a facelift. Rather, it’s more about slowing the clock than stopping the clock and works well for women between the ages of 35 – 60 who are showing mild to moderate laxity in their face and neck. Two treatments are typically recommended for best outcomes, spaced 12-18 months apart. Another benefit of Ultherapy is its compatibility with other procedures that can address more superficial tissues, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers.
