Ultherapy at Young Medical Spa
Ultherapy® harnesses the power of focused ultrasound energy to gently lift and tighten sagging skin on the brow, face, chin, and neck by boosting collagen formation naturally without downtime or surgery. Ultherapy is also the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the décolletage.
During an Ultherapy treatment, the deeper layers of tissue are heated using sound waves leaving the surface skin untouched. When these deeper layers of tissue are heated properly, they in turn increase collagen production which causes skin to firm and tighten over time resulting in a younger-looking appearance to your skin.
The procedure takes approximately 60 to 90 minutes with mild to no discomfort as the heat is delivered deep beneath the skin and varies depending upon the area of the body being treated. Smaller areas of the face treated take approximately 30 minutes to treat effectively.
Ultherapy Treatment ResultsUltherapy is recommended for patients who experience mild to moderate sagging of the skin on the face, neck and décolleté. As with most non-invasive procedures, the body’s own naturally healing process will take over. Patients can expect to see results between 2 to 3 months depending on the condition and quality of the skin being treated with full benefits of the treatment being seen at 6 months.
Most patients require only one treatment, however, additional treatments may be suggested to achieve optimal results.
