Ultherapy® is an innovative non-surgical dermatology treatment designed to lift, tone, and tighten skin in areas where its elasticity is reduced. The treatment involves the use of safe and effective ultrasound technology to induce the body’s natural healing process to achieve the desired aesthetic outcomes.
Ultherapy® is commonly applied in areas such as the face, neck, and chest. Dr. Steven Zimmet is an experienced dermatologist providing this state of the art cosmetic skin care treatment to patients in Austin, TX and surrounding areas.
Safe FDA-cleared Technology
The device employed in the delivery of Ultherapy® treatment has been cleared by the FDA. It is designed to utilize the safe and time-tested ultrasound energy to stimulate the deeper layers of the skin that provide structural support. The key advantage of this non-invasive aesthetic dermatology procedure is that it reaches the deeper layers of the skin, including those that are usually addressed by invasive surgeries such as facelift.
Ultherapy® does not cause any adverse impact to the top layers of the skin, and achieves its aesthetic goals in a painless, non-surgical manner. Due to the advanced ultrasound technology, the dermatologist can perform the procedure efficiently. A single treatment session may take around 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the number of areas to be treated. Most people opt for one or two treatments, and full effects of the treatment appear gradually in a natural way over a period of two to three months.
Dr. Zimmet will evaluate an individual’s skin condition and their aesthetic goals before recommending Ultherapy® to his patients in Austin, TX or surrounding communities who are looking for safe and non-invasive aesthetic skin care treatments. A standout and terrific candidate will typically have mild to moderate laxity in specific areas of the skin, and may not be willing to opt for surgical solutions.
Ultherapy® is also suited for younger people who are keen to be proactive about maintaining their youthful skin appearance for a longer time and delaying the aging signs as they develop. Busy or working people can choose this procedure because it involves no downtime, and the patient is ready to resume daily activities almost immediately.
How does it Work?
Unlike invasive surgery, lasers, peels or injections, Ultherapy® treatment relies on the impact of ultrasound waves to treat the deeper, supporting layers of the skin in a targeted manner. The waves heat the lax tissue in a gentle way to tighten loose skin without causing any cuts or disruptions on the top skin surface.
The treatment works visibly to lift and tighten loose skin, and at the same time, it also produces longer term benefits. It stimulates the natural production of new collage, which allows the skin to regain its elasticity and youthfulness.
Natural, noticeable results will appear over a period of two to three months. In some cases, the patient may continue to experience improvement in the treated areas for up to six months. Patients should maintain an active, healthy, and balanced lifestyle to prolong the effects of the treatment.
