Fine lines and loose skin on your face, neck, and chest can give away your age faster than any other aspect of your appearance. Still, surgical procedures like face lifts involve risks and recovery times that you might not want to take on. If you're interested in getting the anti-aging results of a face lift without any surgery at all, look into revolutionary ultherapy, using ultrasound technology to tighten your skin and kick-start your natural collagen production.
At Lasercare Skin Clinic, our care team, led by Bruce Sanderson, MD, has the expertise you can trust with the newest cutting-edge cosmetic and skin care procedures. Dr. Sanderson offers ultherapy, in addition to a full range of other anti-aging services. Here's what you need to know about the potential of this nonsurgical treatment to help you attain your anti-aging goals.
Ultherapy, cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009 for use as a noninvasive eyebrow lift treatment, can also be used to firm and tighten skin in other areas of your body. We can use ultherapy to achieve anti-aging results in:
The treatment should reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to tightening your skin, ultherapy increases your natural collagen production, helping your skin to continue to look fuller and firmer for months after treatment. A majority of patients are satisfied with their results after undergoing ultherapy.
When you come in for an appointment, we make sure you’re comfortable, and we answer all your questions. Before we start your session, we clean the treatment area thoroughly, then apply an ultrasound gel. We use a focused beam of pulsing heat energy to lift and tighten the skin in the area where you want to see anti-aging results. You might feel a little heat or tingling during treatment. If you're concerned about the potential for discomfort, we can use medications to keep you pain-free. Any redness or slight swelling should fade rapidly after your ultherapy session.
The specialized ultrasound energy applicator affects multiple layers of your skin, targeting both muscle and skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. With the right temperature calibration, we can also stimulate your collagen, increasing elasticity and reducing sagging.
Your session only lasts about 30-90 minutes. You won't need general anesthesia, because the procedure doesn't involve any surgical incisions. With noninvasive treatment, you should only have minimal preparation and recovery time.
