Why Choose Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment on the chest, neck, under your chin, and brow area. Ultherapy® harnesses the power of ultrasound energy, which stimulates collagen development within your skin. Before you undergo Ultherapy®, you will meet with an esthetician to discuss the areas of your face that you would like to see enhancements. Once we have determined that this treatment is a good option for you, we can schedule your next appointment.
What to Expect During Your Procedure
On the day of your Ultherapy® treatment, our skilled technician will clean your face and neck and apply ultrasound gel on the treatment areas. Dr. Urig oversees each Ultherapy® treatment, which will be administered by one of our caring estheticians. We will use Ultherapy® ultrasound imaging to gain a better view of the deeper layers of your skin. The ultrasound energy is then delivered through a handheld device that is applied to the targeted areas. You will feel small bursts of energy as the ultrasound waves penetrate beneath your skin, stimulating collagen development. Most patients report little to no discomfort during treatment.
Your Ultherapy® treatment time will depend upon the areas being targeted, typically about 60-90 minutes. You may notice some slight redness after treatment that will dissipate within a few hours. You can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment.
Unlike surgical treatments, which yield more dramatic effects, the results of Ultherapy® develop subtly over time. The results of your Ultherapy® treatment will begin to develop in the weeks following the procedure, with more comprehensive effects becoming apparent within three to six months. You can expect to see gradual improvement in your skin's texture, as the treatment promotes new collagen growth, which will lift and tighten your skin. We also offer a specialized skin care mask that can be applied to the neck and face to enhance the lifting and anti-aging effects of your treatment. Once you have reaped the full benefits of your Ultherapy® treatment, your results will look completely natural.
