Ultherapy® is a non-surgical treatment that gives our team in Boston the ability to tighten and tone skin throughout the face, neck, and chest. This technology minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles by triggering your body’s natural healing response. If you are struggling with skin laxity issues but aren’t ready for an invasive procedure, then you might be the perfect candidate for Ultherapy®!
A Look at Ultrasonic Waves
Ultrasound technology was adopted by healthcare professionals over 50 years ago, but it is typically used to take images of the inside of the body. Within the last few years, doctors have discovered that ultrasonic waves can also trigger the body’s natural healing response when set to very specific frequencies. When these waves are directed at the soft tissue just below the outer layer of skin, the patient’s body will produce additional collagen and elastin in that area. Over time, those proteins improve the appearance of the patient’s skin by tightening the cells and trapping moisture.
What Can Be Treated with Ultherapy®?
One of the reasons why Ultherapy® is so unique is because it is the only procedure that has been cleared by the FDA to treat skin laxity issues in the face, neck, and chest. Many other treatments only work in very specific areas, and that means patients will have to undergo multiple procedures in order to achieve their cosmetic goals. Ultherapy® is the perfect solution for fine lines and loose skin near the eyebrows, below the chin, and on the décolletage. Many patients in Boston also have Ultherapy® carried out following a facelift. With regular treatments, you might be able to extend the results of your facelift procedure.
Your Ultherapy® Appointment
After your initial consultation with one of our team members at Finesse Cosmetic Surgery in Waltham, you can have Ultherapy® carried out. The total length of your appointment depends on the size of the area that is being treated, among other factors. Our patients generally need a series of treatment sessions in order to achieve their desired results, but you might begin to notice changes to your skin within just a few weeks of your first appointment.
