Ultherapy www.ulthera.com is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, chin, brow and décolleté (chest).
Ultherapy can be used to treat axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm perspiration).
With sun exposure and through the natural aging process, we know that a person's skin loses its elasticity. Jawlines lose their definition, jowels develop, neck skin becomes loose, cheeks sag, and eyebrows droop. All of these changes contribute to the appearance of aging of the skin.
Patients who may not be ready for a facelift, or who don't want to go under the knife, may benefit from this treatment.
Ultherapy involves the use of microfocused ultrasound waves delivered to the deepest levels of skin to cause heat injury. The deepest levels of skin provide support to the skin, and are the same layers that are targeted with a surgical facelift. As the ultrasound waves collide, heat energy is produced which works to tighten collagen.
There is no downtime with this procedure because the results are achieved through the use of ultrasound waves.
It takes about three months to see the positive effects of lifting and tightening. Results persist for three years or longer. This is a one-time treatment that can be used again down the road as skin aging continues to occur.
Ultherapy can be combined on the smae day with Botox or Xeomin neurotoxins and hyaluronic acid fillers.
Our estheticians provide the treatment.
Costs range from $400 to $3500 depending on extent of areas treated.
