How Does Ultherapy Tighten Skin?

Would you like to rejuvenate your appearance, but you’re not keen on having surgery? Ultherapy may be the ideal solution for you. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound technology to tighten the skin on the face, neck, and décolletage. But how does ultherapy tighten the skin.

Ultherapy Skin tightening

Ultherapy treatment is designed to give you a fresher, more youthful look, by addressing early signs of aging such as mild to moderate sagging of the cheeks and jowls, and lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. It also lifts the brow area.

How Does Ultherapy Tighten Skin?

The Ultherapy applicator delivers focused ultrasound energy to the structural support layers below the skin that are targeted during facelift surgery. The ultrasound heats the tissue in the deep foundation, causing the existing collagen to contract. This tightens the tissue, giving the skin a subtle lift.

Ultherapy also triggers the production of new collagen over the following 2-3 months, which makes the skin firmer and more elastic.

Most patients only need one Ultherapy treatment to achieve the desired skin tightening.

When will you see results after ultherapy?

Patients may notice some initial improvement in the firmness of the skin immediately after treatment. However, the growth of new collagen fibers takes time, so final results can take up to 6 months to show.

How long do Ultherapy results last

The results of Ultherapy can last approximately one year, but since the skin will continue to age over time, follow-up treatments may be needed every 1-2 years.
