Lift and Tighten Skin Naturally with Dr Anh
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment to actually lift skin, treating the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin. With the addition of the new Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment, it is now the single non-invasive procedure to improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Focused Ultrasound, No Surgery
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. Sound energy has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over 2-3 months.
The treatment also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.
In comparison, Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat the surface of the skin.
Can Ultherapy Replace a Face Lift?
Ultherapy treats the deep foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery but won’t duplicate the results of a facelift. Ultherapy represents a great alternative for those not ready for surgery, or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
The treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. In general, a face and neck procedure will take place over 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
When will I see results? How long do they last?
After your Ultherapy treatment, you may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results will take place over 2-3 months, as your body naturally regenerates collagen. Since the procedure stimulates your own collagen production, how long the results last really depends on you. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but your natural ageing process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?
Most patients only need one treatment. However, based on the degree of skin laxity, the biological response to ultrasound energy and the individual’s collagen-building process, some patients benefit from additional treatments. Because skin continues to age, future touch-up treatments can help patients keep pace with the body’s natural ageing process.
Am I a good candidate for Ultherapy?
A good Ultherapy candidate has mild to moderate skin laxity where the skin begins to feel and look less firm. Examples include a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on the chest. Of course, the best way to find out if you’re an Ultherapy candidate is to consult with one of our practitioners. Feel free to connect with us and book your consultation.
After Your Treatment
One of the great benefits of Ultherapy is that there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.
Your skin might appear flushed at first, but the redness should disappear within a few hours. Some patients experience slight swelling, tingling or tenderness to the touch, but these symptoms are mild and temporary in nature.
Other, less common, post-procedural effects may include temporary bruising or numbness on small areas of skin. As with any medical procedure, there is the possibility for other rare effects, which our practitioners will review with you.
