Ultherapy is a noninvasive aesthetic tool that uses micro-focused sound wave technology to lift and tighten your skin. It’s the only FDA-cleared nonsurgical treatment for lifting the skin on your neck, brow, and chin, as well as smoothing out the lines and wrinkles on your décolletage.
Ultherapy directs high-frequency sound waves to specific areas of your face and body to stimulate the production of collagen in the deep layers of your skin. Collagen is a structural protein found in the dermal layer of your skin that provides support, strength, and elasticity. Production of collagen decreases as you get older, which is one of the primary contributors to your sagging and wrinkled skin.
The innovative tool treats the same areas of the skin addressed during a facelift. Though you may not get the same results with Ultherapy as you would from a facelift, the aesthetic tool is an excellent option for those not ready for surgery.
The aesthetic experts at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss determine if you’re a good candidate for Ultherapy during a consultation. You may be a good candidate if you have some degree of skin laxity, or you have loose skin on your neck, under your chin, or décolletage.
Many of the patients who benefit from Ultherapy at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss are 30 or older and not ready for surgery, as well as those trying to maintain their youthful look to stay ahead of the aging game.
The team at eleven19 Medical Spa + Weight Loss performs your Ultherapy treatment at the office. Treatment time varies depending on the areas worked on and may range from 30-90 minutes. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but you might feel the ultrasound energy as it targets the deep layers of your skin.
You might notice some skin redness or swelling following your aesthetic session, but these side effects disappear within a few hours, and there’s no need for downtime.
The number of sessions you need may depend on your aesthetic goals and the degree of skin laxity. The team develops your personalized treatment plan before you get started, so you know what to expect.
You may notice an improvement in your look immediately after the procedure. However, you may not see the full effects of your Ultherapy until two to three months after your treatment.
