Sagging skin is one of the unfortunate side effects of aging that we would all like to live without. As we get older, our bodies naturally lose collagen content. This can be especially evident in areas of the face.
If you’ve noticed that building blocks of youth and anti-aging are not being produced naturally by your body, Ultherapy® Skin Tightening may be able to help. This skin tightening device is the only treatment with FDA-approval for non-surgical skin tightening and lifting. If you’re interested, we urge you to schedule an appointment at our Fresno, CA center today.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Is Ultherapy® Skin Tightening?
Ultherapy® Skin Tightening is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure that uses ultrasound technology to improve the appearance of loose or lax skin on the face and neck. This incredible treatment is the first to be FDA-cleared for the tightening of skin tissue. This treatment addresses deep skin layers while laser systems such as the Fraxel® Skin Rejuvenation system typically address the superficial layers.
What Does This System Address?
Ultherapy® is an excellent choice for tightening targeted areas of the skin on the face. Upon your initial consultation, Dr. Behr will evaluate your skin needs and outline a treatment course using this system if applicable. Once we’ve identified the areas that need tightening, we will administer the system with the highest care and precision possible. Some of the most common areas of treatment include:
How Does Ultherapy® Skin Tightening Work?
At the start of your treatment, Dr. Behr will cleanse your skin and apply an ultrasound gel to the treatment area. Then, the Ultherapy® handpiece will be placed directly on the skin where the gel was applied to deliver low-level focused heat. Although the heat is low-level, there may be mild discomfort during treatment. The entire tightening procedure for the face and neck takes about 60-90 minutes, while a partial face or brow treatment usually takes about 30 minutes.
What Results Can I Expect?
Following your treatment, you may notice some tightening effects immediately, but the ultimate lifting takes place over a 3-6 month period. It takes a little time for the collagen to be rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen created by the ultrasound energy. While not a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, Ultherapy® offers a “minimal downtime” approach to significantly improving lax skin. For optimal results, you should consider yearly treatments to combat the ongoing effects of age and gravity.
