Ultherapy Skin Tightening
Skin loses elasticity as it ages, resulting in drooping, lines and wrinkles. Lower levels of collagen are connected to this loss of firmness in the skin. Inducing a high production of collagen can improve the skin structure and reduce laxity caused by aging. One of the proven ways to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin is with the use of Ultherapy. LM Medical NYC offers Ultherapy skin tightening for a non-surgical lift for the face and body at our clinic in Manhattan.
Skin laxity can make your face and body look older. When skin on the jowls, lower face and neck begins to droop, it is often due to lower levels of collagen. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved skin tightening treatment that can offer a non-surgical option for a facelift. The ultrasound energy can induce higher levels of collagen, gently and naturally tightening and firming the skin. Not only can Ultherapy be used for a non-surgical facelift, but it can also improve the firmness of the skin on the neck, chest and other areas of the body with little to no pain or downtime.
What is Ultherapy and how does it work?
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical approach to correct mild and moderate skin laxity and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the neck and submental areas of the face. It uses intense focused ultrasound technology to deliver short pulses of transcutaneous ultrasound energy with multi-level frequencies to the specified depths of the skin ranging from 1.5-4.5 mm. A combination of energy and temperature work to energize the skin from a cellular level to create new collagen.
What are the benefits of this treatment?
Ultherapy differs from other tightening/lifting procedures as a more natural remedy to combat the effects of aging skin. Additionally, this procedure has little downtime, and most patients will begin to see results within 2-3 months as new collagen begins to lift and tighten the treated area.
What does this treatment entail?
An ultrasound gel is placed on the Ultherapy applicator, and a focused ultrasound energy will be delivered beneath the skin’s surface. Optimal placement of each treatment is determined via Ultherapy’s ultrasound imaging platform. Treatments last 30-60 minutes, depending on the focused location of the body. After treatment, skin may appear red and swollen, but these conditions will subside within the first few hours.
Who is the ideal candidate for this procedure?
The ideal candidate for this procedure is a patient who is not quite ready for facial surgery but is concerned with lax skin in the neck and submental areas of the face.
Where can I get Ultherapy?
Focused areas of treatment are the neck, brow, lower cheek, chin, chest and face (upper and lower). Ultherapy can also be performed on the abdomen, arms and legs.
