Ultherapy® is the only FDA-approved, nonsurgical 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. The FDA has also approved Ultherapy® to treat the décolletage, where it smooths away lines and wrinkles that often affect the appearance of the cleavage.
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. The collagen builds, lifting and toning slackened skin on the neck, chin, and brow while smoothing skin on the chest.
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 noninvasive and requires no downtime. Ultrasound has been used in the medical field for decades, and is considered safe and effective. During treatment, patients 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.
