What is Ultherapy?
One of the main causes of aging is a decrease in your body’s collagen production. Collagen is integral to making sure your skin stays healthy, plump, and supported. Without sustained collagen production, your skin can begin to sag and become loose with age.
Although plastic surgery has always been the gold standard in anti-aging and tightening loose skin, the cosmetic industry offers more options than ever for tightening skin without the need for incisions or downtime. Ultherapy® is one skin tightening treatment that uses ultrasound energy to gently generate heat, tightening the underlying collagen matrix and stimulating new protein production.
With a quick, easy, and non-invasive treatment plan, Ultherapy can achieve mild skin tightening that can last a year or more. There’s no pain, no downtime, and no risks that come with surgery. The result is a lifted, more youthful look so you feel like your most confident self yet.
What are My Treatment Options?
Ultherapy can be used to lift and tighten areas of the face and neck, including:
- Turkey Neck
- Double Chin
- Upper Chest
Results and Recovery
There’s no downtime required after Ultherapy, meaning you can return to your regular schedule right away. Most patients need only 1 treatment with Ultherapy, although you may benefit from additional treatments based on your customized treatment package. It’s recommended to undergo touch-up treatments every year to maintain your results and continually stimulate slowed collagen production. You may notice some redness after your treatment, but this goes away quickly. In 3-6 months, you’ll see a drastic improvement in your skin’s tone, laxity, and overall youthfulness. Seattle Skin and Laser also treats patients from Mercer Island and the Issaquah area.
