As we age, our skin loses collagen, a natural protein that keeps the skin firm and toned, maintaining its youthfulness. When collagen’s strength diminishes, it can no longer stand up to gravity, pulling the skin downward. By stimulating new collagen production, Ultherapy at our Livermore med spa serving Dublin and San Ramon, CA, helps skin fight the effects of gravity and aging.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, noninvasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin, brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating your body to produce collagen in response.
Ultherapy is the only cosmetic procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure the energy is deposited where it is most beneficial.
How Does Ultherapy Work?
Ultherapy generates a thermal effect that strengthens the skin’s existing collagen while producing new, fresh collagen. It delivers sound waves deep under the skin to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate loose skin without surgery, needles, or damage to the skin.
Am I a Candidate for Ultherapy?
Individuals between the ages of 25 and 65 with mild to moderate laxity are good candidates. Any person, regardless of skin thickness, age, volume, or ethnicity, is a candidate for Ultherapy. However, individuals with more elasticity do better than those who have very thin, loose skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Only 1 treatment is needed to see a result with the jowls or neck. We recommend 1 to 3 treatments for areas around the eyes and the mouth because there is considerable movement in these areas.
What Is Ultherapy Recovery Like?
There is no downtime. Sensitive skin types may have some redness for a couple of hours, but otherwise, you can resume your normal exercise routine and activities after your treatment.
When Will I See My Ultherapy Results?
It takes your body 3 to 4 months to make the collagen, but once created, it produces a tightening and lifting effect that can last 2 to 5 years.
How Much Does Ultherapy Cost?
The cost of Ultherapy depends on the areas treated and the amount of time it takes to address these areas. Individuals with moderate or severe laxity will take longer to perform and need more energy for optimal results.
