Ultherapy: A Non-invasive Treatment to Lift, Tighten, and Tone Skin
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-approved to lift skin on the face and the neck. Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy stimulates the body’s own healing process to lift and tighten the skin, resulting in natural looking, noticeable results, typically with no downtime. The areas most commonly treated are the brows, eyelids, cheeks, jawline, neck and under chin. Individual treatments take between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the extent of treatment. Most people do 1-2 treatments. Results typically unfold over two to three months time.
Instead of an injection or laser or surgery, Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound waves to treat the deeper, supporting layers of your skin. The waves gently heat the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there’s also an invisible result from Ultherapy. The treatment also stimulates new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.
Dr. Zimmet has been named an Ultherapy Ultra Treatment Provider by Ulthera.
• Perioral (around the mouth)
• Periorbital (brows, crow’s feet, lower lid area)
Natural looking, noticeable results typically unfold over two to three months. Some patients report continued improvement up to six months post treatment. The skin does continue to age, so Dr. Zimmet recommends periodic maintenance treatments at 2-3 year intervals.
The ideal candidate is someone with mild to moderate skin laxity. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for surgery, for those who may feel hesitant about surgery, Ultherapy offers a safe and convenient way to lift, tone and tighten their skin. This procedure can also be useful for younger people who want to be proactive about maintaining their appearance by delaying the signs of aging as they develop.
