5 Things to Know About Ulthera®

Youthful skin has an abundant supply of collagen and elastin – essential proteins that provide support and keep the skin supple and resilient. However, collagen and elastin production declines with age, making your skin thinner and allowing wrinkles and sagging to form.


In the past, surgeries such as facelifts, neck lifts, and brow lifts were the only way to reverse the effects of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. Today, technological advancements have paved the way for non-surgical anti-aging solutions such as Ulthera®. Here are the top five things you need to know about this revolutionary treatment.


1. It Stimulates Your Body’s Natural Healing Response

Ulthera® is unique because it uses ultrasound energy to penetrate your skin at the dermal level, triggering your body to produce more collagen in the treated areas. The ultrasound energy bypasses the more superficial layers of skin, leaving them intact and unharmed.


2. It Provides Long-Lasting Results

The results of an Ulthera® treatment are progressive, with toning and tightening effects continuing for up to six months after your appointment. If you wish, you can have periodic touch-up treatments to maintain your revitalized look. You can also prolong your appearance by using high-quality, medical-grade skin care products, wearing sunscreen every time you go outdoors, and making healthy lifestyle choices like exercising and eating a balanced diet.


3. It’s Ideal for Busy People

Facial surgery can take up to a decade off your appearance, but the required downtime for healing and recovery will likely leave you sidelined for a couple of weeks. If you have a packed schedule and are always juggling work and family obligations, you may believe you don’t have time for aesthetic treatments. The good news is that Ulthera® is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no incisions, sutures, scarring, anesthesia, or recovery time. After your in-office treatment, you’ll be free to resume your regular activities.


4. It’s Safe

Aging doesn’t only happen on your face. Ultherapy® is the world’s only FDA-cleared treatment that can lift, tighten, and rejuvenate from your brow region to your décolletage, all in one convenient treatment.

5. It Pairs Well With Other Treatments
