The Science of Ultherapy

Research tells us that aging has a lot to do with the amount of sun exposure you’ve experienced. When it comes to the development of wrinkles, fine lines, creases and sagging on your face, the sun’s UV rays are one of your worst enemies. Genetics, stress, smoking and the natural effects of time are also contributors to facial aging. When UVA and UVB rays penetrate into your skin cells, inflammation and oxidative damage are triggered. The production of free radicals increases, leading to a breakdown in skin quality and elasticity. There was little you could do about this effect other than avoiding sun exposure and wearing sun protection. That is until now. 

With Ultherapy, advanced ultrasound technology has given us the capability of reversing the symptoms of aging to achieve a smoother younger appearance. Ultherapy achieves its incredible anti-aging results by triggering the body’s natural collagen production and healing capabilities. 

The ultrasound energy emitted by the Ultherapy treatment device penetrates into the dermis layer. The energy creates a deep-tissue heating that coagulates collagen and elastin proteins. These proteins and elastin structures give support strength to the skin, giving your skin a firmer, tighter texture. The firming and tightening effect continue for months after just a single treatment so patients experience a continued improvement on their appearance. Ultherapy’s handheld treatment head pulses concentrated beams of ultrasound energy to precise points just below the surface of the skin into the layer known as the superficial muscular aponeurotic system. This is the same tissue layer that is treated with the facelift. The precision ultrasound energy triggers the breakdown of aged collagen and proteins, which results in your body’s healing response repairing and rebuilding your skin with fresh collagen.

Treatment Areas

Ultherapy is a clinically-tested and proven treatment that is also versatile. The following areas are treatable with Ultherapy:

Brow

One of the most vulnerable areas to symptoms of aging is the brow. Loss of skin elasticity creates drooping and sagging of the brow area that may create the appearance of exhaustion and aloofness. 

Chin

Lax skin around the chin can create a double chin and the overall false impression of obesity. The skin lifting and tightening abilities of the Ultherapy treatment can reduce sagging of the chin. 

Neck

Lax skin on the neck is another early sign of aging that contributes to a false impression of obesity. Sagging and wrinkles can become an eyesore, but with Ultherapy, this area can remain youthful, lifted and taut. 

Chest and Decolletage

A common area affected by aging are the chest and decolletage areas above the cleavage. This area of the body is often damaged by overexposure to the sun and traditionally difficult to address for treatment. Wrinkles, lines, and sagging can leave you feeling self-conscious about wearing revealing clothing. With Ultherapy, the symptoms of aging are treatable. 

Ideal Candidates

Ultherapy is safe and effective for healthy adult male and females in search of an answer to many of their symptoms of aging. Facial aging around the neck and chest can be reversed to give you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Individuals who’ve considered a facelift, but chose not to undergo the treatment due to concerns about surgery and the recovery may be ideal candidates for Ultherapy. 

Ultherapy Treatment Experience

Ultherapy for men

An Ultherapy treatment session is performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art office while you are awake and resting comfortably. Typically, patients are in a seated, upright position. The session can take as little as 60 minutes and afterward, you are back on your feet with no need for downtime

Ultherapy works through the use of sound waves. Your doctor will direct sound waves deep into the skin, targeting the same tissues that are addressed in surgery. In this way, the underlying tissue is lifted and tightened without cutting the surface of the skin.

The Ultherapy treatment begins by marking the treatment area in sections to map out the treatment course. The handheld Ultherapy treatment head is brought close to the skin and held for a few moments as ultrasound beams are pulsed into the skin. The pulse lasts only moments and then the treatment head is moved to another area along a pattern. 

Recovery and Results

As soon as the session is complete, the patient is able to return to their normal, daily activities. A warm sensation on the skin is a common experience. Some patients may experience prolonged redness, but it should dissipate within a few hours. 

The improvements in your skin become more obvious over time, taking about a month to become obvious. We recommend taking before and after photos for comparison as the results are significant but subtle. 

Cost of Ultherapy

The price of an Ultherapy may range depending on the individual goals of the patient. Each treatment is fully customized according to the specific, presenting aging issues of the patient. The size of the area and the number of sessions required will also impact the final cost of the treatment.
