Ultherapy (Skin Tightening) - Weatherford, TX
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved non-invasive procedure designed to life the eyebrow, neck and skin under the chin. Ultherapy is also FDA-approved to improve lines and wrinkles on the decolletage. Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. While stimulating the deep structural support layers of the skin, ultherapy doesn’t entail cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. While it is not a replacement for surgery, it is an inviting alternative for those who want some lifting but are not ready for surgery, as well as those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery. With Ultherapy there is no downtime, no foreign substance are used, and no radical changes take place. Unlike lasers penetrating the skin from the outside-in, Ultherapy actually works from the inside-out to lift and tighten the skin for a natural result, targeting the deep, structural tissues where collagen forms. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic, collagen builds gradually over time. The result is a tightening and lifting of the skin back into a more youthful position. Dr. Anderson offers Ultherapy at the Weatherford MedSpa of Anderson Plastic Surgery
Ultherapy is an in-office procedure performed without the use of anesthesia in less than 30 minutes. Once the treatment areas are confirmed, the aesthetician will administer the ultrasound rays via a handheld device. During the procedure, patients will feel a mild warming sensation or prickling beneath their skin. Patients typically tolerate this procedure well and do not experience pain.
What To Expect
Ultherapy will produce a “boost” in the skin’s appearance almost immediately following the procedure. However, optimal results typically reveal themselves over time within 3-6 months. Collagen-elastin builds over time, producing results slowly but effectively. While Ultherapy does not produce the dramatic results that surgery typically does, it is a great alternative for those seeking subtle changes without the need for surgery.
Ultherapy is an ideal procedure for patients with minimal to moderate skin laxity around the eyebrows, on the neck, and under the chin. The ideal age for this treatment are those in their 40’s and 50’s, who experience moderate skin laxity. Patients with prominent jowls often seek Ultherapy combined with injectable treatments.
Ultherapy results are typically noticed 2-3 months following the procedure, however the results develop over time as more collagen is produced in the face to lift and tighten loose skin. Patients can expect the results to develop for up to a year at which time they may choose to have another booster treatment.
In the initial consultation, the licensed medical aesthetician will determine the number of treatments required to give each patient the best results. Skin quality, laxity and overall patient expectations play a role in setting these goals. Some patients will only need a single treatment session, while others will require several. Six months after the first treatment, the aesthetician will again evaluate the patient's response to Ultherapy and determine the need for any additional treatments.
