As you get older, your skin starts to change. Your natural levels of the protein collagen start to decrease, and your body doesn’t create new collagen as frequently as it used to do. You start to see the appearance of new lines and wrinkles, especially in areas like your face and chest that get a lot of exposure to the sun.
At Lasercare Skin Clinic, Dr. Bruce Sanderson and our team of anti-aging and skin care experts can recommend treatments to kickstart your production of collagen, increasing skin smoothness and elasticity for a more youthful appearance. From our office in Little Rock, Arkansas, we offer noninvasive Ultherapy® and other treatments to stimulate collagen.
How does Ultherapy work?
Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to stimulate your skin. The microfocused ultrasound energy has a thermal effect beneath your skin, heating the layers of your skin to just the right temperature to encourage the production of new collagen resources.
Ultherapy is approved by the United States FDA to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your décolletage, to lift skin on your neck, and to improve the skin on your eyebrows and beneath your chin. Ultherapy works for all skin types and shades.
At Lasercare Skin Clinic, we can also use customized Ultherapy treatments to address other areas of concern, including your knees, bra bulge, and abdomen.
What can you expect during and after Ultherapy?
You can achieve noticeable results after just one Ultherapy treatment. You won’t have any post-treatment downtime, and can return home or back to work right away after your appointment.
The Lasercare Skin Clinic team can complete your facial Ultherapy procedure in 60 minutes, with 90 minutes needed to treat your face and neck, and just 30 minutes needed to treat your chest. We clean the treatment area, then apply ultrasound gel and position the Ultherapy device against your skin.
You might feel brief sensations of heat or tingling during treatment. Some people see mild side effects of redness, swelling, pain, and temporary nerve effects after treatment. These side effects typically fade rapidly.
It takes time for your full results to show after Ultherapy, as new collagen rebuilds your skin from the bottom up. In clinical studies, 65% of patients saw some improvement within 60-180 days following treatment. Most patients see results over 2-3 months.
Your results can continue to improve over 3-6 months, and last as long as a year or more. The skin you’ve had treated on your face, neck, or chest responds to Ultherapy treatment by noticeably lifting and smoothly for a revitalized, more youthful look. About 67% of Ultherapy recipients in one study reported being satisfied or very satisfied with results 90 days after treatment.
