The Ultherapy treatment is a non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. It also has been specifically proven to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Using Ultherapy, the board certified dermatologists at Capital Laser & Skin Care can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest.
Ultherapy delivers focused ultrasound energy to the same deep layers under the skin typically addressed by plastic surgeons during face lifting procedures—all without incisions or disrupting the surface of the skin. Ultherapy bypasses the skin’s surface to deliver energy at optimal depths, temperature and with precision, based on the treatment outlined by the physician. Because the surface of the skin is intact after treatment, recovery time after Ultherapy is minimal. Most patients experience only minor redness and swelling and can return to regular daily activities immediately.
Another advantage of the Ulthera treatment is the ability to visualize the individual layers of skin during treatment to ensure energy is delivered safely and to the precise location where the heat will be most beneficial. The heat generated within the skin during an Ultherapy treatment initiates the natural healing response within the skin, leading to the growth of fresh, new collagen over time. While Ultherapy does not duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it can gently lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck and chest with the best results seen three to six months after treatment. Your physician may recommend additional Ultherapy treatments to maintain the results, depending on individual needs.
