What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy® is the ultimate weapon for someone looking to put up a fight against the effects that gravity is having on their skin. Gravity can be your best friend. It can also be your worst enemy. This is usually the case when talking about aging. Gravity pulls on your skin and on your facial features. As a result, your skin starts to sag and you have a collection of jowls right underneath your chin.

In times past, the best option for treating loose and saggy skin was surgery. Now, Ultherapy® provides an effective, non-surgical option that produces powerful results without the discomfort or the downtime that is associated with surgical procedures.

What makes Ultherapy® so powerful is the fact that it has the ability to target specific parts of your facial foundation. It is this pinpoint accuracy that allows the cosmetic professional performing your procedure to give you amazing results. The procedure takes advantage of ultrasound imaging. So, during the procedure, we can actually see the layers of tissue that are being targeted. This allows us to perform this procedure in a precise and effective way.

The nice thing about ultrasound energy is that it is a technology that has been tested through and through. It has been shown without a doubt to be safe, and it has been shown without a doubt to be effective. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of ultrasound technology in cosmetics with the goal of tightening your skin.

When ultrasound energy is directed under the surface of your skin, it encourages your body to make new collagen. Collagen is like a natural healing factor for your skin. In fact, when you are young, the reason why your skin is so tight and the reason why your skin is so supple is because your body is producing an abundance of collagen. Unfortunately, as you get older, your body starts to produce less collagen, and this along with gravity’s effect on your face is why your skin starts to sag.

It is important to emphasize that Ultherapy® is not surgery. It is not an invasive procedure. Nothing is cut, and nothing is disrupted on your skin’s surface. This is a great option for you if you’re not ready to go under the knife.

The safety of this procedure is unquestionable. It has been cleared by the FDA, tens of thousands of people have had the treatment performed around the world and ultrasound energy has been a key aspect of medical procedures for more than half a century.
