While most of our Ultherapy patients are in their 30s to early 50s range, basically anyone seeking a tighter, younger-looking appearance may be good candidates.
The Gold Standard For Nonsurgical Lifting & Tightening of the Skin
When you think of lifting and tightening the skin, it probably generates some unpleasant images of surgery. Well, what if we told you there’s a way to achieve a younger-looking appearance without any incisions at all? That’s where Ultherapy® comes in. This revolutionary, noninvasive treatment offers a welcomed innovation for lifting and tightening skin without the need for surgery. In fact, it’s the only FDA-cleared technology to actually “lift” the skin of the neck, chin, and brow utilizing ultrasound energy.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy works by delivering micro-focused ultrasound energy to the deeper foundation layer underneath the skin (the SMAS layer). It’s typically the SMAS that’s tightened during surgical facelift procedures. That ultrasound energy triggers a natural response in the SMAS that really kickstarts the production of new collagen into high gear. That big boost in collagen eventually leads to a natural-looking lifting and tightening in the treatment area.
While Ultherapy won’t produce the more dramatic results of a surgical facelift, it can offer a great alternative for people of all skin types in Miami and the surrounding area. It’s also great for smoothing lines and wrinkles on the chest/décolletage…you know, if a little too much fun in the sun on South Florida beaches has left you a little crinkly.
Who is a candidate for Ultherapy in Miami?
If you’re experiencing a degree of skin laxity, like loose skin under your neck and chin or lines and wrinkles on your chest, Ultherapy may be a good option for you. While most of our Ultherapy patients are in their 30s to early 50s range, basically anyone seeking a tighter, younger-looking appearance may be good candidates. We’ll be sure to go over all the details to help you determine if Ultherapy is your best bet for reclaiming that youthful glow.
What areas of the body can Ultherapy be used to improve skin?
We use Ultherapy to lift and tighten skin in the following areas:
- Upper face
- Lower face
- Full face
- Chest (décolletage)
What are my comfort options during Ultherapy treatment?
To achieve such noticeable results, Ultherapy penetrates deeper layers of tissue compared to other noninvasive technologies. With that in mind, there may be some mild to moderate discomfort involved (though most patients tolerate treatment well). Still, we offer the Pro-Nox™ system to help you feel nice and comfy. Pro-Nox contains a 50/50 mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide that you control during treatment so you experience the amazing anti-aging advantages of Ultherapy with little to no discomfort.
Will I need any downtime after my Ultherapy treatment?
Nope, most people get right back to their regular activities after their Ultherapy session. Just keep in mind your skin will most likely be red immediately following your session, but this usually goes away in a few hours. Some people may experience mild swelling or tenderness in the treatment area due to the depth Ultherapy addresses, but these effects typically resolve pretty quickly. Less common side effects may include temporary bruising or numbness in the treatment area. We’ll discuss everything you can expect at your appointment so there are no surprises.
When will I experience the results from Ultherapy and how long do they last?
A lot of patients notice some improvement immediately following their Ultherapy treatment, but the biggest improvement is going to take a little time. Optimal results of tighter, smoother skin gradually show up in two to three months following treatment, because it takes time to rev up new collagen production. Just know that the more youthful look is on its way.
How long your results last will depend on your individual body chemistry. In general, best results typically last up to a year or more depending on how your skin ages. But you’ll have the peace of mind knowing you can choose future touch-up treatments to maintain long-lasting improvement.
