If tighter skin in under an hour sounds like a fantasy, well then you haven’t tried Ultherapy! This revolutionary skin tightening procedure doesn’t use needles or lasers and best of all is done very quickly. If you’ve got an hour to spare, you’ve got time for an Ultherapy transformation. It’s quick and painless and is the new anti-aging darling of med-spas, plastic surgeons, and dermatologists.
So, what exactly is Ultherapy? Years ago, the only way to lift and tighten skin was a facelift. But seriously, who really wants to get a facelift for a little sagging?! Women used to have to choose between sagging skin and an extensive surgical procedure with weeks of recovery. Now with Ultherapy, that’s all out the window! Ultherapy is the only FDA cleared procedure to non-invasively lift the eyebrow, neck, and under chin area. It can also be used to improved lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy works by using ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production and the results of Ultherapy are both immediate and long lasting. You’ll enjoy some of the early effects right after treatment with continued improvement to your skin for a couple of months. Most people see the full effect of the lifting about 2-3 months after treatment.
If you’re thinking, “I already use the Fraxel laser, why would I need Ultherapy?”, well the truth is, these two treatments are quite different. Dr. Seth Matarasso, a practicing dermatologist and Clinical Professor of Dermatology from San Francisco, explains, “I offer my patients both Ultherapy and other treatments like the Fraxel laser. Each treatment targets different problem areas. Typically, I use Ultherapy for tightening and lifting while Fraxel is better suited for other skin problems like uneven skin tone, scars, and enlarged pores.” This non-invasive treatment certainly doesn’t replace the facelift, but it does give you options for lifting and skin tightening without surgery or a long recovery. If you’ve got an hour, you’ve got time to give Ultherapy a try!
