Ultherapy® Lift and Tighten

Ultherapy® sets the bar for nonsurgical, regenerative skin medicine in "LIFTING & SKIN TIGHTENING"! Ultherapy® is the only FDA - cleared non-invasive treatment for "lifting & tightening" the skin on the neck, chin and brow. Now it is also the only non-invasive treatment specifically FDA - cleared to improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage.

Crank The Collagen

OH RIGHT, SCIENCE. Ultherapy® is a safe, non-surgical "ultrasound" treatment. As we age, collagen breaks down, resulting in loss of skin strength and elasticity. Through time-tested ultrasound technology, Ultherapy® helps produce new collagen growth with "no downtime" by using the body's own regenerative response to gently and gradually over time "lift" skin above the eyebrow, under the chin and on the neck, and smoothes lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. The result yields firmer younger looking skin, from brow to chest.

What is unique about Ultherapy®?

Ultherapy® is the only "regenerative" skincare cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which is what makes Ultherapy stand out from the others. Ultherapy has the ability to visualize deeper structures of the tissue and allow us to target and treat those areas safely. Also, customizing the treatment for each individual patient. When you're able to use ultrasound visualization, you are able to see where the targeted levels are to ensure the energy is being delivered to the correct depth as you are performing the treatment. It is possible that these tissue planes can shift and change slightly allowing you to add additional pressure to certain areas. Therefore, treating the correct layer depth throughout the entire treatment.

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® is a great alternative especially for those not ready for surgery or for patients looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.

How is Ultherapy® different from laser treatments?

Ultherapy® uses sound energy - tried-and-true ultrasound - which 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.

Lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers at an optimal temperature, so laser treatments typically only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

Since the two technologies often treat different types of skin issues, they're actually very compatible, like a hand in glove.

How does Ultherapy® stimulate the creation of collagen?

Ultherapy® deposits focused ultrasound energy deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. The treatment jumpstarts a natural process, known as neocollagenesis, to produce fresh, new collagen. Ultherapy® doesn't involve any creams, fillers or toxins; it just relies on your body's own collagen-building process for natural, noticeable results.

How long does an Ultherapy® treatment take?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated and your individual treatment plan. A face and neck procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, while a chest treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

Will I need to take time off?

With Ultherapy®, there is no downtime. After your procedure, you can resume your normal activities immediately, without having to follow any special post-treatment measures.

What does the Ultherapy® treatment feel like?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you will feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, indicating that the collagen-building process has been initiated. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

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 aging 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 aging process.

Are there any side effects?

The 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 are 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 Dr. Robinson will review with you.

Is Ultherapy® safe?

The FDA-cleared Ultherapy® procedure has been used safely in over 250,000 treatments worldwide and has been used safely in the medical field for more than 50 years. In addition, every Ultherapy® practitioner receives extensive procedural training.

How much does an Ultherapy® procedure cost?

The cost of an Ultherapy® treatment can range depending upon the area being treated. To get the most accurate quote, consult with Dr. Robinson.

Who is 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. The best way to find out if you're an Ultherapy candidate is to consult with Dr. Robinson. Our Cosmetic Consultation Reimbursement policy is offered to all our patients. Come discuss your needs and goals with Dr. Robinson and the office visit cost will be applied to future costs for the discussed procedure.  Procedure must be completed within 30 days of your consult visit.
