Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten your skin naturally, without surgery or extensive downtime. When administered by a board-certified medical professional, the procedure safely improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face, on your neck, under your chin, on your eyebrows, and, for women, on your décolletage, or chest. Ultherapy is noninvasive and helps revive the collagen and elastin in the treatment areas.
With Ultherapy, Dr. Austin focuses the ultrasound energy to your skin’s foundational (underneath) layer — a layer typically addressed in cosmetic surgery procedures. The Ultherapy procedure stimulates collagen production without cutting or disrupting the surface layer of your skin. Ultherapy technology bypasses the surface of your skin without the use of toxins, needles, lasers, or radio frequency.
This ultrasound energy gets to the underlying layers of skin to trigger a natural response that helps regenerate new collagen.
Your skin may appear a bit red following an Ultherapy treatment, but this redness usually disappears in a few hours. Additionally, you may feel minor swelling, tingling, or tenderness in the treated area, but these symptoms are temporary as well. Since side effects are so minimal, there’s no downtime after an Ultherapy treatment, either.
Many patients see initial improvement in the days following a treatment, but the significant results take place over a period of two to three months. Since Ultherapy stimulates the production of collagen, it takes time to see the full benefits as your body naturally regenerates collagen on its own in the months that follow treatment.
Most men and women need just one Ultherapy treatment to see long-lasting results, but because your skin continues to age, Dr. Austin may recommend future touch-up treatments to maintain the desired results.
If you have mild to moderate skin laxity (looseness) around your chin, eyebrows, or neck, you may be a good candidate for Ultherapy treatments. Also, if you have lines and wrinkles on your face and chest, Ultherapy may be able to help remedy that. The best way to find out if you’d benefit from Ultherapy is to call or schedule a consultation online with Dr. Austin so he can offer his medical and dermatological expertise.
