What is skin tightening with Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a noninvasive, non-surgical way to lift the skin and provide a more youthful appearance. Ultherapy targets the skin on the neck, chin and eyebrows. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to boost collagen production in the skin, allowing doctors to visually see exactly where they are directing the treatment. This procedure is FDA-approved, safe and effective in tightening the skin to provide a younger appearance.
What can I expect at a skin tightening appointment?
Your doctor will discuss with you realistic expectations for your results, what to expect during your procedure and answer any questions you may have at a consultation. This consultation will also determine whether you are an ideal candidate for Ultherapy treatment. During the treatment itself, your doctor will cleanse your skin and determine which areas to treat. Ultrasound gel applied to the skin allows the treatment to work correctly. The procedure uses a transducer placed against the skin which provides the ultrasound therapy itself. The transducer also allows your doctor to use the ultrasound’s imaging technique to see exactly where to apply the therapy.
