At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we understand that our patients have busy lifestyles. They don’t always have time for lengthy surgical procedures with extensive recovery times. That’s why we offer non-surgical lifting procedures to safely and effectively lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and decolletage. Although not a replacement for surgery when skin sagging is severe, people with mild to moderate skin laxity typically get results that they can see and feel on the skin; a true “lifting” experience!
One of our favorite procedures for non-surgical skin lifting is Ultherapy. The procedure is safe, effective, and produces exceptional long-term results without any downtime. Today, we’ll take a closer look at why our patients are flocking to non-invasive Ultherapy procedures.
#1: Gentle Ultrasound Technology
Ultherapy uses one of the most advanced forms of ultrasound wavelengths to trigger deep dermal rejuvenation. Ultrasound energy penetrates to the deeper layers of the dermis causing skin tightening effects while leaving surrounding tissue completely unharmed.
#2: Quick & Easy In-Office Appointments
Non-surgical facelifts with Ultherapy are generally quick and painless thanks to our advanced protocol to manage any discomfort. Although treatment times can vary, most procedures take just 45-60 minutes. Patients tolerate the procedure quite well with our protocol to control discomfort and take this time to relax before returning to the hustle and bustle of their normal day-to-day routine.
#3: Skip the Downtime
There is absolutely no downtime after non-invasive Ultherapy treatments. Side effects are typically minimal with no swelling allowing for a discrete procedure. Feel free to get back to your regular activities including exercise directly following your in-office treatment. Enjoy smoother, firmer-looking skin without the recovery.
One of the best things about Ultherapy is the ability to gain long-lasting results with a single session. While some initial results can be seen immediately, an optimal outcome from Ultherapy will gradually occur in about 3-6 months. To obtain the best long-term results, we may recommend a second treatment a year after the first for additional lifting of the skin.
#5: Makes a Great Complimentary Procedure
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment option that pairs perfectly with other procedures. Patients that have more than one age-related concern will benefit from combining Ultherapy with dermal fillers or minimally-invasive resurfacing treatments for enhanced results. Your Board Certified Dermatologist will help determine what’s right for you at the time of your comprehensive consultation.
Capital Laser & Skin Care is a fantastic practice. Each time I’ve received treatment, the staff demonstrates exceptional care in a beautiful, comfortable environment. The results of my treatment have exceeded my expectations.
