Until recently, this great technology has only been FDA approved and used for treating the brow, face, jaw line, neck, and jowls. However, as your face and neck become smoother, more beautiful and youthful with cosmetic procedures, your age can still be detected every time you wear a swimsuit or low-cut top. The FDA has now given clearance for use of the Ultherapy system to treat the chest and improve the lines and wrinkles of the décolletage. This is the first non-invasive procedure to be approved by the FDA to treat this area.
The area of the upper chest between the collarbone and the cleavage is one of the least protected areas of a woman’s body. It’s highly susceptible to sun damage and a sure sign of age. The Ultherapy system utilizes the same ultrasound guidance and energy placement technology for the treatment of the décolletage as it does the brow, face, and neck. The treatment stimulates the formation of collagen and elastin under the surface of the skin to gradually and naturally smooth out chest wrinkles and lines. As with other uses of Ultherapy, results are achieved in just one treatment, and there is no downtime or post-treatment care requirements or concerns.
