Age often brings unwanted changes to your skin and appearance. One of the most common of these is loose, sagging skin as your skin loses its elasticity. Our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin as we get older, resulting in skin that just doesn’t bounce back the way it used to.
What is Ultherapy®?
If you’re looking for a solution to skin laxity without the expense or downtime of a surgical facelift, Ultherapy® may be the answer. You can enjoy long-lasting results with minimal recovery time.
Ultherapy® is an FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on the neck, eyebrows, and under the chin. This skin tightening treatment is often used to reduce sagging and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest.
What makes this skin tightening treatment stand out is its convenience, gentleness, and effectiveness. Ultherapy® uses ultrasound energy to heat up the skin and trigger a healing response. This causes the skin to increase collagen production, leading to improved firmness and health.
Ultherapy® treatments at Capital Laser & Skin Care begin with a thorough consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. The procedure itself takes 30-90 minutes, and patients typically experience heat and tingling but no pain because we provide analgesia in the office.
Ultherapy® Skin Tightening Results
If you’re looking for a non-surgical, convenient alternative to a facelift that still provides exceptional results, Ultherapy® may be the answer. You’ll start to see results within just a few days of your procedure, and these will continue to improve for up to three months as your skin creates new collagen. We often recommend multiple treatments for the best results, depending on your skin condition and goals.
Though it isn’t permanent, Ultherapy® offers long-lasting results. Increased collagen will likely keep your skin looking firmer and more youthful for a year or more. You can return for maintenance sessions every year or two to preserve these results.
Because it uses gentle ultrasound energy, Ultherapy® comes with minimal side effects. You can return to your regular activities immediately after an Ultherapy® treatment without any downtime. Some patients experience minor redness or swelling, which typically subsides within a few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for Ultherapy®?
Ultherapy® is a versatile treatment that is beneficial for many people and safe for all skin types and tones. The best candidates for Ultherapy® have mild to moderate skin laxity and are in their 30s to 50s.
Capital Laser & Skin Care offers numerous skin rejuvenation options, and our board-certified dermatologists always personalize treatments to each patient’s unique needs. We will assess your skin concerns and may recommend other anti-aging treatments that may be beneficial instead of or in combination with Ultherapy®.
