Ultherapy® - Effective Non-Surgical Lift*
When it comes to preserving your youthful appearance, time and gravity are not on your side. Over the years, you may have noticed that your facial skin has become more lax and lost some of its natural elasticity. If you would like to restore firmness to your facial skin without having to undergo face lift surgery, there is a potentially ideal alternative solution in the form of Ultherapy. Ultherapy®, available at our greater Reno, NV practice, Murphy Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, can provide a subtle rejuvenating lift to your eyebrow, neck, and under-chin areas without surgery or injections.
Ultherapy® represents just one of the many innovative, non-invasive cosmetic treatments offered by Dr. James Murphy and his team at our medical spa. If you would like to learn more about Ultherapy® and our other anti-aging options, contact our office today.
What Is Ultherapy®? - Harnessing the Power of Ultrasound
Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical method for lifting the neck, eyebrow, and under-chin areas. Proven clinically effective, it gives you a naturally refreshed appearance that inspires compliments without questions. Ultherapy® has also been approved by the FDA for the treatment of the décolletage, where it smooths away lines and wrinkles that often affect the appearance of the cleavage.
- No downtime
- Single treatment
- Builds new collagen
- Natural Results
Using the power of ultrasound, Ultherapy® stimulates the production of new collagen by delivering focused energy deep below the skin’s surface. Targeting the same foundational areas addressed in cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy® works to tighten and lift. This treatment is not meant to equal the results of a surgical face lift, but will produce good results for those who seek a less invasive way to subtly turn back the hands of time.
The ultrasound energy used in Ultherapy® triggers the body’s natural regenerative process (neocollagenesis), so fresh, new collagen can be produced.
Ultherapy® Treatment and Results*
Ultherapy®is not a laser treatment. Rather, it uses ultrasound imaging to help technicians visualize the layers of tissue lying beneath the skin. This allows Dr. Murphy to determine the optimal tissues to target during treatment. Ultrasound energy is then directed to the intended tissues at precisely the right depth, bypassing the skin altogether.
Ultherapy® is completely non-invasive and requires no downtime. Ultrasound has been used in the medical field for decades, and is considered safe and effective. tients may feel a slight sensation as energy is transmitted to precise depths, but most do not find the process uncomfortable.
Many patients experience impressive results after the first treatment, and more dramatic results unfold over a period of two to three months. Some patients choose to undergo a single treatment, while others schedule routine touch-ups to promote continual collagen growth. Ultherapy® can also be used to help maintain the results of face lift surgery.
