Ultherapy | A Game-Changing Treatment for Skin Tightening
Cooper City | Davie | Weston | Pembroke Pines
Loose skin anywhere is a sign of aging, but it can be particularly visible on the neck and face. While creams and serums help with the outer appearance of the skin, they cannot do much to significantly firm, tighten, or lift sagging skin. Because our bodies produce less collagen and elastin as we age, skin’s laxity, sagging, and drooping continue to get worse with each year. Invasive surgery like a facelift can pull skin back into place, but it is a costly solution requiring significant downtime and expense. To stimulate the body’s own natural collagen production, Ultherapy offers a non-invasive, no-downtime treatment to reverse the effects of gravity on the face and neck.
How Ultherapy Works
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow. Ultherapy works by sending focused ultrasound energy deep below the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production and counteract the effects of time and gravity. By utilizing ultrasound energy, this non-surgical treatment for the face, neck, and décolletage causes the body’s own natural healing process to kick in and lift, tone, and tighten lax skin. Immediately following treatment, a slight tightening is noticeable, and the effects continue to improve for the next several months as the body’s collagen production remains heightened. Although wrinkles might say wisdom and experience, droopiness and lax skin just say tired and old.

*Individual results may vary.
During an Ultherapy treatment, a smooth applicator is placed on the skin and delivers tiny deposits of micro-focused ultrasound energy at just the right depth below the skin to stimulate new collagen growth. Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm, toned, and elastic. As we age, collagen loses its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. With Ultherapy, there is no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change – just a healthy revving-up on the inside for a natural, noticeable effect on the outside.
With one Ultherapy treatment, loose skin on the neck, drooping below the chin, or loss of firmness on the face or brow area can be reversed for up to two years before a touchup is needed.
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.
Depending on the cause of your double chin, Ultherapy may be a treatment to consider. With recent technological breakthroughs, Ageless Medical offers three safe, effective treatments for improving the appearance of your chin and jawline. At Ageless Medical, we know that one size does not fit all, so with three options to choose from, we can recommend the best treatment or treatment combination for your special double-chin distress. Our double chin solutions include:
Kybella, an injectable prescription medicine that breaks down fat stored beneath the chin with a series of treatments; CoolSculpting CoolMini, a non-invasive treatment that destroys fat below the skin by freezing it; and Ultherapy, which stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to lift and firm the skin.
Most patients need just one Ultherapy treatment to achieve significant skin tightening that lasts up to two years as the body continues to age naturally.
Immediately following treatment, a slight tightening is noticeable, and the effects improve for the next 6 to 8 months as the body’s collagen production remains boosted.
Results from Ultherapy appear gradually and last for about two years before a touch-up is needed.
This safe, effective treatment requires no downtime and leads to gradual, natural improvement rather than radical change. Unlike invasive surgical procedures, you generally will be able to return to normal daily activities immediately. Mild swelling, tenderness, tingling, numbness, and bruising may occur. Some of the immediate benefits include a slight lifting and toning, along with a tighter, firmer feeling in the skin.
Patients report a sensation ranging from heat to prickling needles during treatment. Following treatment, you may experience mild aching for about a week.
Yes, Ultherapy is safe for all skin types and tones because its energy penetrates deep below without affecting the skin’s surface.
